I am a proud diasporan but am curious if anyone wants to share their experiences with members of the federation other than #diaspora such as #friendica #hubzilla and #socialhome

It's #34c3 time and there is at least one talk about #federated social networks by Tobias Diekershoff. Check it out here (link to slides in the info page).

The Federation

Heyho, #fediverse! Here are some #stickers for #diaspora, #Mastodon, #GNUsocial and #Socialhome I'm not an artist (more of a hunter and gatherer). Dear #artists, if you want to add your own stickers, you are most welcome!

Please, spread the word :) And merry holidays to ya all 🎄


A quick reminder how diverse Fediverse is in terms of programming languages:

  • #Ruby: diaspora*, Mastodon, Libertree
  • #PHP: GNU Social, Friendica, Hubzilla, postActiv
  • #Python: Socialhome
  • #Go: gangGo
  • #Elixir: Pleroma
  • #Rust: Fedibook
  • #Nodejs: pump.io

🐧 So many opportunities to contribute



Today #Socialhome passed 1000 commits. Yay!

The commits have been put out as a video, check it out!


The visualization was made with Gource.

So happy to have the quick reply feature finally done for #Socialhome, though only in the upcoming #Vue streams currently. Doesn't yet have image uploads or markdown buttons, those will be added later. For now there is a link to the full editor.

The upcoming Vue streams are available also on https://socialhome.network . To try them, go to preferences and set "Use new stream" on, or alternatively add ?vue=1 to any stream url (no need to register or log in). I'm already using the Vue streams all the time, so we're getting really close to finalizing the rest of the items and making them default. #Testing and #feedback welcome!

Hi !

I'm Valvin an opensource enthousiast and concerned by privacy. That's the reason I'm like decentralized network and the reason I'm testing social home.

I'm also a Pepper&Carrot contributor and like all the work made by Framasoft

Now time to discover Social Home :)

Official homepage of Pepper&Carrot, a free/libre and open-source webcomic about Pepper, a young witch and her cat, Carrot. They live in a fantasy universe of potions, magic, and creatures.


Dear diasporians, please, advise. Can you recommend a decent European (de facto) #domain registrar with private WHOIS service? I know Gandi, no need to mention that one ;)

Fun facts

  • .me is the national domain for Montenegro. No, it's not you, it's Montenegro.
  • Other country domains promoted otherwise are, among others: .tv (Tuvalu), .fm (Federated States of Micronesia), .nu (Niue), .md (Moldova)
  • .pw is the national domain for Palau. Rebranded as "professional web". Huh?
  • .de (as of 2013) is the third most popular top-level domain (after .com and, probably, .tk)
  • #ICANN has introduced the domain .dog. There's also .cat, but no, it's not for felines, it's a top-level domain intended for Catalan language and culture. So ICANN has managed to offend cats at least twice. Bad for karma!
  • Most expensive domain sales (as of 2013): sex.com - 12.5k $, porn.com - 9.5k $, wine.com - 3.3k $, vodka.com - 3k $. And this is all aliens need to know about humans...

/ awaiting your advice =)

Russian Standard Vodka
Russian Standard Vodka - vodka as it should be. Russian Standard is more than a name. It’s a promise to give vodka lovers around the world a new standard in vodka. Where once drinkers had to choose between a pure vodka or a vodka with good taste, now drinkers can have both.


Socialhome v0.6.0 released

.. and we have a logo!

The logo, which highlights both the "home" and the "grid" aspects of #Socialhome, is contributed by lightone - thanks a million! <3 The documentation brand page has an SVG and various PNG's for download.

Major changes

Other user facing changes in this release include the following:

  • Profile "All content" streams now include the shares the profile has done.
  • Unknown shared content shared by a contact is now fetched from remote if it doesn't exist locally.
  • Modified timestamp is now used for when federating out to remote nodes. This makes edits federate more reliably to some remote platforms that support edits.
  • Fixed various OpenGraph related issues.
  • Fixed poor performance of loading replies. This regression happened when introducing replies for shares.

Additionally there are some #API changes and various other tweaks mainly interesting for people who run or would like to customize a Socialhome server. See the full changelog.

For developers, #Docker files now exist to do development without installing all the complex components required. See the developing with Docker documentation.

Release statistics

A total of 7 authors contributed to this #release which is a record so far! #Hacktoberfest helped bring in a few authors. A total of 77 commits were made, affecting 134 files, contributing to 3864 insertions and 865 deletions.

Up next

Right now there is still a lot of work being done on the #VueJS streams, thanks to Christophe Henry again for working on these. Current estimate is that the next release will replace the current #jQuery based streams with the new rewritten ones. This will introduce some feature updates, but mostly it will be an internal rewrite. What it does do though is open up more features to be added. The current streams code is not going to be expanded expect to fix bugs.

Once the Vue streams work is shipped, we're looking to work on long standing missing features like tag streams and limited visibility content. #ActivityPub federation will likely be pushed to early months of 2018.

What is Socialhome?

Socialhome is best described as a #federated personal profile with social networking functionality. Users can create rich content using Markdown. All content can be pinned to the user profile and all content will federate to contacts in the federated social web. Currently #federation happens using the #Diaspora protocol. Federating using existing protocols means Socialhome users can interact with tens of thousands of other users.

Please check the official site for more information about features. Naturally, the official site is a Socialhome profile itself.

Official site: https://socialhome.network.

I have no prior experience in organizing this sort but if thing, but uh, here's a new MeetUp I'm starting.

BAMF - Bay Area Members of the Fediverse

http://meetu.ps/c/3CrlC/vlXjp/d on Meetup

Currently testing it out to gauge interest. If you live in the Bay Area and want to come out and make new friends, that would be the most amazing thing. You are welcome to join, regardless of whether you're from #Diaspora, #Friendica, #Hubzilla, #Libertree, #SocialHome, #Pump or any other federated platform.

I'll pick a date and a venue soon.

Notification emails from socialhome.network should no longer be marked as suspicious by some email clients.

The reason this was happening was link click tracking that was for some reason enabled in the email sending provider (MailJet) we use. This feature has now been turned off and links in emails are not "polluted" by the MailJet link tracking.

Welcome another new contributor!

Amir Karimi came in and did some good #Hacktoberfest work by fixing an issue with remote profiles that have relative image urls. Now all imported profiles will get absolute image urls.

Thanks Amir!

We welcome two new contributors to #Socialhome!

  • Vir-Cotto contributed files for doing development of Socialhome with the help of #Docker. This will hopefully make it easier for more developers to get involved as setting up an environment is now literally only a few commands, and not dependent on what OS you are running. See the docs here.

  • Mykhailo Kushchenko contributed extra settings and code for injecting third-party application overrides. This allows app developers to run Socialhome with highly customized functionality, without having to maintain a separate fork. As an example, Mykhailo is building a federated Corruption Tracker on top of Socialhome, using these new overrides.

Thanks for your time and effort Vir-Cotto and Mykhailo, appreciated! Total number of developers who have contributed code to Socialhome has now reached 7 🎉

If you're interested in helping develop a #Django + #VueJS based #federated social network platform, check out our docs and join our friendly chat room.
