Now, run the tests to check that everything is set up ok:
gcloud beta emulators datastore start --no-store-on-disk --consistency=1.0 --host-port=localhost:8089 < /dev/null >& /dev/null & python3 -m unittest discover kill %1
Finally, run this in the repo root directory to start the web app locally:
dev_appserver.py --log_level debug --enable_host_checking false --support_datastore_emulator --datastore_emulator_port=8089 --application=bridgy-federated app.yaml
If you send a pull request, please include (or update) a test for the new functionality!

You may need to change granary, oauth-dropins, webmention-tools, mf2util, or other dependencies as well as as Bridgy Fed. To do that, clone their repo locally, then install them in "source" mode with e.g.:
pip uninstall -y granary pip install -e <path to granary>
To deploy to the production instance on App Engine - if @snarfed has added you as an owner - run:
gcloud -q beta app deploy --no-cache --project bridgy-federated *.yaml
Here are in progress notes on how I'm testing interoperability with various federated social networks.
- Mastodon (issue) works! They shipped support in 1.6.
- Hubzilla is getting close!
- No explicit accounts, can post anything as anyone
- Tried posting a bunch of ways, couldn't get any to work :/
- Not open to other users yet. Seems to be running at puckipedia.com/social.
- GNU Social (née StatusNet)
I occasionally generate stats and graphs of usage and growth via BigQuery, like I do with Bridgy. Here's how.
Export the full datastore to Google Cloud Storage. Include all entities except
MagicKey. Check to see if any new kinds have been added since the last time this command was run.
gcloud datastore export --async gs://bridgy-federated.appspot.com/stats/ --kinds Follower,Response
--kindsis required. From the export docs:
Data exported without specifying an entity filter cannot be loaded into BigQuery.
Wait for it to be done with
gcloud datastore operations list | grep done.
for kind in Follower Response; do bq load --replace --nosync --source_format=DATASTORE_BACKUP datastore.$kind gs://bridgy-federated.appspot.com/stats/all_namespaces/kind_$kind/all_namespaces_kind_$kind.export_metadata done
Check the jobs with
bq ls -j, then wait for them with
Run the full stats BigQuery query. Download the results as CSV.
Open the stats spreadsheet. Import the CSV, replacing the data sheet.
Check out the graphs! Save full size images with OS or browser screenshots, thumbnails with the Download Chart button.
