Diaspora

The privacy aware, personally controlled, do-it-all, open source social network.

DISCLAIMER: THIS IS PRE-ALPHA SOFTWARE AND SHOULD BE TREATED ACCORDINGLY. PLEASE, DO NOT RUN IN PRODUCTION. IT IS FUN TO GET RUNNING, BUT EXPECT THINGS TO BE BROKEN

Initial installation instructions are here.

We are continuing to build features and improve the code base. When we think it is ready for general use, we will post more final instructions.

Commit Guidelines

You are welcome to contribute, add to and extend Diaspora however you see fit. We will do our best to incorporate everything that meets our guidelines.

Please make your changes on a topic branch in your repo and submit your pull request from there, so that commits you don't want to submit aren't included.

Please do not rebase our tree into yours. See here for when to rebase.

All commits must be tested, and all your tests should be green before a pull request is sent. Please write your tests in Rspec.

GEMS: We would like to keep external dependencies unduplicated. We're using Nokogiri, Mongomapper, and EM::HttpRequest as much as possible. We have a few gems in the project we'd rather not use, but if you can, use dependencies we already have.

We need you to fill out a contributor agreement form before we can accept your patches. The agreement gives Diaspora joint ownership of the patch so the copyright isn't scattered. You can find it here.

Resources

We are maintaining a public tracker project and a roadmap. Also, you can file bug reports right here on github.

Ongoing discussion:

More general info and updates about the project can be found on: Our blog, and on Twitter. Also, be sure to join the official mailing list.

If you wish to contact us privately about any exploits in Diaspora you may find, you can email exploits@joindiaspora.com.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
