Capybara

Capybara is a Mastodon clone - it will function practically identically to Mastodon, both under the hood and through its exposed APIs.

Why?

For fun, and because although I love Eugen's work, I'm wondering if putting the backend in Go might make things go faster.

How?

All of the code will be designed independently of Mastodon, but the underlying schema and interface (including the database layout and API route) will be, for compatibility and cleanliness purposes, identical to the best of my ability.

Development/Deployment

Currently, this project is just barely getting started, so I have no advice or recommendations aside from "this isn't even close to working."

License

Since Capybara is derivative, this will include two license notices - one for Capybara's side of the code (the application itself) and one for the API/database design (from Mastodon). Most of the credit should go to Eugen and the beautiful people working on Mastodon - this is just a tribute.
