Acropolis (recent fork of diaspora*)

Build Status

Acropolis was forked from diaspora* in August 2021. The idea for the fork is to optimize toward community, that is making it as easy as possible to contribute. We're following a protocol that basically says if you are addressing a valid problem, your code gets merged. Everything else follows from that.

We're running our test instance via Docker and docker-compose. If you'd like to do the same, please see Note: Upgrades are still rough since there's no built-in upgrade process for docker-compose.

YunoHost installation is coming soon.
