The API is also documented via OpenAPI. You can have a look at the quickstart.

Discover other PeerTube servers

There is now a dynamic list at instances.peertu.be, maintained by @Chocobozzz. It is not playing any role in the federation process at the moment, but it's a nice aid if you want to discover instances or be discovered.

If you want to follow them automatically as they come you have 2 scripts, but then beware that you blindly trust every other admin for enforcing sane moderation policies :

  • Peetube AutoDiscover by Jorropo, that uses following and followers list of nodes you already follow to discover new nodes.
    • Can discover nodes unlisted in the official list (if an admin forgot to add their node in the official list this isn't a problem) as it recursively asks nodes you already know.
    • Doesn't require a central node exchange point (node list)
    • More secure than shell script (shell script use file as variable for storage of login token)
  • script from Skid and python3 version
    • Faster
    • Protects privacy (maybe if a node isn't listed on instances.peertu.be there is a reason)

You can do a cron like */10 * * * * /opt/peertube-autofollow.py >/dev/null 2>&1 to automate its update.
