Le mastodon est un animal à poil laineux

@officialcjunior @angristan @bobstechsite @Gargron
no axe to grind, just a description of finding my way around the #fediverse from a complete newbie and ultimately why I chose #Mastodon .

#mastodon upgrade fail to 2.4.2 with a strange message (given I'm using ruby 2.5.1):

bundle exec rails db:migrate fails with

Caused by:
NameError: uninitialized constant Annotate
/home/mastodon/live/vendor/bundle/ruby/2.5.0/gems/bootsnap-1.3.0/lib/bootsnap/load_path_cache/core_ext/active_support.rb:43:in `load_missing_constant'

mastodon@s10y:~/live$ grep -i annotate Gemfile

Had a huddled conversation in the European Parliament with a colleague after the JURI vote trying to work out what #article13 would mean for federated/decentralized services like #mastodon and #ipfs . We’ll need to see the final text which may not be available until next week.

🎉 #Mastodon v2.4.2 is out: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

- Invite autofollow option
- Language filter opt-in
- Default posting language
- "Find friends" link
- dat, ipfs protocols autolinked
- Other fixes and improvements

So i'd love followed tags to be federated across pods in the federation network. We do have the relay feature for that but I'm not really satisfied with it. So I opened github.com/diaspora/diaspora_f with a protocol change suggestion.

I'd love to know how #mastodon deals with that subject, are tags federated? If yes, how does that work? @Gargron

Hey mais... le code de Mastodon est hébergé sur GitHub (github.com/tootsuite/mastodon)

Microsoft a donc racheté Mastodon 😱

#mastodon #microdon #mastosoft

"I left Mastodon yesterday"

In fine Mastodon storming-off tradition, I've written a flipping long Medium post.


#mastodon #meta #ForkOff #ForkOffTogether

still 12 vulnerable instances running #mastodon 2.3.3+master, 11 running 2.4.0rc1/rc2

So people think #mastodon needs currency governance. Why not fork? Gargron has a vision for mastodon. If his vision doesn't align with yours, you shouldn't be bullying him about it.

Find like minded ppl, nominate a community manager, find some devs, and fork it. Then you control the project in the way you want to, Gargron can guide his project his way, and the fediverse goes on. We can continue to connect with each other and everybody is doing so on their own terms

Bien bien bien c'est que maintenant y a de quoi faire avec toutes ces "alternatives" aux grands produits suceur de données :bloboro:

Entre #Peertube #Funkwhale #Mastodon #Pleroma et #Pixelfed qui commence à être testé :blobcat: sans oublier les #Diaspora #Movim et probalement d'autre que je connais pas (encore).

Y a pas dire le monde du libre c'est quand même une belle aventure :blobnomcookie:

Alternative #Mastodon frontends:
* Halcyon
* Pinafore
* Brutaldon

Are there any others that people are aware of?

With #Mastodon 2.4 you can now type a #PeerTube video URL directly in the search bar to find it.

It means you can watch/comment/like videos that were not federated with your instance :)

A lot of subscriptions to my #Mastodon account, name always in uppercase, obviously bots, probably expecting I follow them back. All are (at) mastodon.social

OK, now that we have trending topics in #Mastodon, let's have an excessing use of #hashtags !

Y aurait quelqu'un qui saurait faire un plugin #TTRSS de partage d'un article vers #Mastodon ? Ça serait bien pratique 🙂
