Mastodon

[Build Status][circleci] [circleci]: https://circleci.com/gh/glitch-soc/mastodon

Mastodon is a free, open-source social network server based on open web protocols like ActivityPub and OStatus. The social focus of the project is a viable decentralized alternative to commercial social media silos that returns the control of the content distribution channels to the people. The technical focus of the project is a good user interface, a clean REST API for 3rd party apps and robust anti-abuse tools.

Ruby on Rails is used for the back-end, while React.js and Redux are used for the dynamic front-end. A static front-end for public resources (profiles and statuses) is also provided.

This repository specifically is for Plural Café and has three branches:

  • master (edge on Docker Hub) for all development and staging work,
  • glitch for all commits from upstream that will automatically be synched to this repository, and
  • production (latest on Docker Hub) for what goes onto the main website.

In addition, there are several repositories in this GitHub organization:

  • pluralcafe/mastodon is this repository and is the codebase for what Plural Café runs,
  • pluralcafe/utils are an assortment of scripts and tutorials to help in Mastodon system administration or general helper files this instance uses,
  • pluralcafe/barkeep is forked from mbilokonsky/ambassador and serves as the Ambassador bot that is run on the instance.

This instance is a fork of a fork: this has the Mastodon Glitch Edition commits. Documentation for Mastodon Glitch Edition can be found here. Anyone wishing to use Glitch Edition in a Docker image for their own site can use the pluralcafe/mastodon:glitch image.


Resources

Features

No vendor lock-in: Fully interoperable with any conforming platform

It doesn't have to be Mastodon, whatever implements ActivityPub or OStatus is part of the social network!

Real-time timeline updates

See the updates of people you're following appear in real-time in the UI via WebSockets. There's a firehose view as well!

Federated thread resolving

If someone you follow replies to a user unknown to the server, the server fetches the full thread so you can view it without leaving the UI

Media attachments like images and short videos

Upload and view images and WebM/MP4 videos attached to the updates. Videos with no audio track are treated like GIFs; normal videos are looped - like vines!

OAuth2 and a straightforward REST API

Mastodon acts as an OAuth2 provider so 3rd party apps can use the API

Fast response times

Mastodon tries to be as fast and responsive as possible, so all long-running tasks are delegated to background processing

Deployable via Docker

You don't need to mess with dependencies and configuration if you want to try Mastodon, if you have Docker and Docker Compose the deployment is extremely easy
