It almost feels like Mastodon do not want us to self host. There is no direct link on the main webpage to install on server. Digging through the docs, finally found documentation and there is no Docker container or a package for any OS for easy installation. They require us to install from source along with all the dependencies. I don't mean to bad mouth it but they do not do enough to encourage self hosting (if not discourage).

Would like to know your opinions or ideas on how to self host it easily with minimum maintenance (auto upgrades, etc).

I just added notes on Hubzilla to https://stefanbohacek.com/blog/making-fediverse-apps-for-everyone/.

Huge thanks to @jupiter_rowland for providing some points!

Anything else I'm missing here, particularly:

  • OAuth scopes
  • sharing via URL
  • embedding posts
  • RSS feeds

Does anyone know if Pleroma/Akkoma support opening a sharing dialog via URL?

Looking at https://git.pleroma.social/pleroma/pleroma/-/issues/135, I should be able to add a "message" query parameter, but that doesn't seem to work.

I've written a bit of an extensive guide on navigating ActivityPub and its many apps, and instances, along with some initial questions new users might have, and links to mobile apps.

@LookBehindYouNowAndThen Report it to the mods. I'm on #Mastodon and I think he's on #Pleroma, so there's nothing I can do.

But I'm a freedom of speech homie so I wouldn't complain about it too much; if the speech offends you, you should be able to block or mute him yourself on your end.

Really sad that does not have good photo support, I really would love to just swipe through photos sometimes or have a timeline that just contains posts with photos.

There is only that comes close to what I wait for since 2015 to happen in the , but not really close. It seems to be very easy idea, but probably impossible to program or implement. 😔😢

Really sad.

Dammit voilà que mon #Pleroma est tout cassé, je n'ai rien touché mais il n'accède plus aux notifications et aux interactions parce qu'un serveur dans la liste ne répond pas on dirait, ça vous est déjà arrivé ? 🤔

Am I correct, assuming that @tootapp is dead app? On AppStore no updates for a year and I seems not to find any activity around it anymore.

Which client would be the most versatile to work with #mastodon #pleroma #akkoma and maybe some other #activitypub services with iOS app and alive?

Small of what next update might bring. 😉

Still lots of work to do, and it's clearly not really fun stuff. But I know some of you will be happy to get it. 🙂

(If you want to get it sooner, buy me some coffee via my patreon!)

Fediverse-Serie: Pleroma & Akkoma: Einfache Kommunikation im Fediverse - GNU/Linux.ch

Pleroma und Akkoma gehören wegen ihrer Einfachheit zu den beliebtesten Diensten im Fediverse. Gegenüber Mastodon bieten sie default 5000 Zeichen und einige weitere Funktionen.

Herkunft und Einbindung ins Fediverse
Pleroma und dessen Fork Akkoma gehören einerseits neben Mastodon, Calckey/Firefish, Misskey, Foundkey und GoToSocial nicht nur wegen des Aussehens und Handlings zu der Sparte der twitterähnlichnen Microbloggingdienste im Fediverse. Es unterscheidet sich andererseits recht deutlich insbesondere von Mastodon, wobei das klassische Aussehen doch recht ähnlich ist - aber davon später mehr.

Wenn Du gerne eine Art Mastodon mit richtigen Microblogging-Möglichkeiten haben willst, dann würde ich tatsächlich stark zu Pleroma oder Akkoma raten!
Pleroma/Akkoma ist ähnlich wie Mastodon, aber übersichtlicher und mit mehr Funktionen: Es kann zusätzlich längere Posts (default bis 5000 Zeichen Länge) und Textformatierungen wie Markdown, "schöne Links", Zitate, Aufzählungslisten u.v.m. (was allerdings wie alle Textformatierungen nicht von Mastodon, aber von allen anderen Diensten dargestellt wird)....

Ückück und das Fediverse - meine neue Kolumne bei @gnulinux

Ein neues Projekt steht an und ich freue mich sehr. Ab diesem Monat werde ich regelmäßig für GNU/Linux.ch über das Fediverse schreiben, mal spezielle Projekte vorstellen, mal von Veranstaltungen berichten, mal einen Blick auf die Meta-Ebene vagen - es gibt jedenfalls genug zu berichten, dass ich eine Weile beschäftigt bin :D

Mehr dazu erfahrt ihr in diesem Ankündigungs-Artikel der Redaktion:

Die Kolumne wird ab dem 6. Mai 2024 an jedem 1. Montag im Monat erscheinen.

Just upgraded , which I’d been putting off for a while.

I had been using the packaged, “OTP”, version of Pleroma, but it turned out the package is ancient, and it required an older cryptography library. Because I’d upgraded to a newer version of , the older crypto library had been removed and replaced with a newer version.

I found all this out when I tried to upgrade and got an error, searched for the error text, and found the bug report with a detailed explanation of the problem and solution.

So, I just backed up my instance, removed the OTP version of Pleroma, and re-installed it directly from the source repository.

The whole process took maybe half an hour, and no more than 10 or so commands. Basically:

  1. Stop Pleroma (so it’s not running while trying to backup/update): sudo systemctl stop pleroma.
  2. Backup my instance.
    1. First make a place to store the backup: mkdir -p ~/backup/pleroma. I made it (temporarily!) world-writable to make things easier: chmod 777 ~/backup/pleroma.
    2. Backup the database: sudo -Hu postgres pg_dump -d pleroma --format=custom -f /home/saria/backup/pleroma/pleroma.pgdump.
    3. Backup the configuration: sudo cp /etc/pleroma/config.exs /home/saria/backup/pleroma.
  3. Delete the Pleroma installation (actually, just put it to one side for now, just in case): sudo mv /opt/pleroma /home/saria/backup/pleroma/old-installation and sudo mv /etc/pleroma /home/saria/backup/pleroma/old-configuration.
  4. Adjust stuff that differs between the OTP installation and the source installation.
    1. Update the pleroma user’s home directory: sudo usermod -d /var/lib/pleroma pleroma (Here I got an error that the pleroma user was still running process 758. No problem, just sudo kill 758, then retry.)
    2. Make the “new” locations: sudo mkdir - /opt/pleroma /var/lib/pleroma. (I think /var/lib/pleroma already existed, and was storing images and uploads, which was fine.)
    3. Make the pleroma user the owner of those locations: sudo chown -R pleroma: /opt/pleroma /var/lib/pleroma.
  5. Change to the pleroma direcory: cd /opt/pleroma.
  6. Download pleroma: sudo -Hu pleroma git clone -b stable <a href="https://git.pleroma.social/pleroma/pleroma" rel="ugc">https://git.pleroma.social/pleroma/pleroma</a> /opt/pleroma.
  7. Build pleroma.
    1. Get the dependencies: sudo -Hu pleroma mix deps.get.
    2. Run the build: sudo -Hu pleroma MIX_ENV=prod mix pleroma.instance gen.
  8. Configure pleroma.
    1. Copy the generated configuration file: sudo -Hu pleroma mv config/generated_config.exs config/prod.secret.exs.
    2. Edit the configuration file config/prod.secret.exs, copying all the important stuff (passwords, salts, personal settings) from the old file at /home/saria/backup/pleroma/old-configuration/config.exs.
  9. Run the database migration: sudo -Hu pleroma MIX_ENV=prod mix ecto.migrate.
  10. Restart Pleroma: sudo systemctl start pleroma. I discovered (using sudo systemctl status pleroma) that Pleroma would not start. I realised that was because the systemd service file was still trying to start the old, OTP version. So I replaced the service file with the one from the source installation (sudo cp -f /opt/pleroma/installation/pleroma.service /etc/systemd/system/pleroma.service) and tried again. Now I got an error from systemd because the service file had changed, telling me I had to do systemd daemon-reload. So I did sudo systemd daemon-reload, and tried to start Pleroma again. Success! 🦸🏾‍♀️

As you can see, I ran into some hiccups, but the documentation and error messages were clear enough that I was able to fix stuff and move on.

Now, I am no expert on any of this stuff! I know literally nothing about Erlang or Elixir (the languages/tools/whatever that Pleroma is made with). But as you can see, if you take the time to carefully read the documentation, and understand what each step is actually doing, it’s really not that hard! 💪🏾
