This is a simple Mastodon/ActivityPub server that has a virtual

You can run the project locally:
yarn SERVER_HOSTNAME=your-domain.com yarn dev

localhost.run for this.
Running the project in dev mode is not recommended for production, as it takes a lot more memory and yields in longer startup time. You can run the project in produciton mode by building it first:
yarn build yart start
This compiles the project to
build/ folder using
tsc and runs the built app.
