Embed a mastodon feed in your blog et cetera.

User guide

The homepage has a tool for generating iframe code for you, with a sensible sandbox attribute. The feeds fit comfortably in a 400px wide area.

example: /api/feed?userurl=https%3A%2F%2Foctodon.social%2Fusers%2Ffenwick67&scale=90&theme=light

Returns a html page which displays a mastodon feed for a user URL. Note that URLs must be URI encoded (i.e. encodeURIComponent('https://octodon.social/users/fenwick67') ).

feedurl no a URL to a page of an ActivityPub post collection. Only used for pages beyond the first.

Server Installation

This is a straightforward node project with zero databases or anything, you should just be able to run npm install and then npm start to get up and running. Set your PORT environment variable to change the port it listens on.
