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.

Socialhome version 0.5.0 released

Approximately one month since the previous release, #Socialhome 0.5.0 is out with 102 changed files, 2870 insertions and 999 deletions by 2 contributors.

For users there are only a few features added in this release, most of the work being internal refactoring and work in preparation for future features.

Please see the full changelog here.

New features

A few notes on feature highlights.

Shares in streams

Shares are now pulled up to the "Followed" stream. What this basically means is that when a person you follow shares something authored by a person you don't follow, the post will be pulled up in your stream by the share action.

Generally, you should only see a single post once. If you follow the author whose content was shared, that content has already been in your stream, and thus a share will not repeat it. Note however that since stream pre-calculation is a new thing, it is possible that content seen in the stream before this feature was added will pop up in a new share once more.

There are still some things to do for shares, these are being tracked in this issue.

Stream precaching

Related to "shares in streams", there was a lot of refactoring work to create the new base for how all streams function. This includes unifying lots of code and rewriting it so that in addition to pulling content out of the database, we can "precalculate" streams. This is done to ensure streams load super fast even if the calculations on what content the stream has are heavy.

The only stream that is currently precached is the "Followed" stream. Precaching means it will load as fast as the public stream even though we now include shares by non-followed users and include them only once - which would be a heavy calculation to do without precaching. The real benefit will come when custom user defined streams are available.

How would you like to configure the content in your stream?

GIF uploads

Yes, we love GIF's <3

Links in content

All links in content (whether textual, markdown or HTML) are now treated equally. They will all be used as candidates for OEmbed/OpenGraph fetches and all will be processed to add a target="_blank" to the link, forcing it to open in another tab/window.

Stream URL changes

All stream urls now live under /streams/, so for example followed stream is /streams/followed/. The old url's should still work until they are needed for something else.

Features coming up

Vue.js streams

Christophe Henry has been hard at work rewriting the current Django template + #jQuery based streams in #VueJS. The status of that work can be tracked here. We're hoping to replace the current stream frontend with the Vue streams within the coming months. This will drop a lot of legacy code and speed up development of new features, and will also mean our #API is fully complete for the stream features.

ActivityPub protocol support

This is still something we want to do as soon as some of the basic features are first implemented. Currently it looks like having it before the end of the year is slightly optimistic, but federating with for example #Mastodon using #ActivityPub will be a strong priority to get early next year.

Docker images

There has been some work on #Docker images to run a Socialhome instance. Will post more info as they are ready.

Socialhome is best described as a #federated personal profile with social networking functionality. Users can create rich content using Markdown.

Also, implementing the same features in both the legacy (stable) #jQuery based stream and upcoming #VueJS stream really drives home how much better a framework like Vue is. Everything is just so much cleaner, efficient and generally easier to see from the code what is going on.

Thanks again @{Augier; augierle42e@diaspora-fr.org} for pushing the Vue frontend rewrite of #Socialhome 👌

Profile content stream + minor redesign

Added now a new "All content" stream for each profile. This can be found in the user profile. It is always rendered by default if the profile is remote or is a local profile with no pinned content.

Also related to this a minor redesign of the profile page. The "stamped" area with profile information is now centered with two columns on xl-large screens, two columns on left for large screens and full-width on medium or smaller. It now has a user actions drop-down for modifying settings or profile content, and for other user profiles there are the home/follow/unfollow buttons as in stream content.

The navbar also received a rewrite as bumping a #Bootstrap 4 alpha version broke things again.

Feedback

Would love to receive feedback on the usefulness of the profile stream, or streams in #Socialhome in general. If you have tried Socialhome, did you find the grid layout useful or confusing?

It is likely the design will live quite a bit in the future. The current one was really a "let's try this" idea which still needs to be proven. Underneath the code is starting to suffer from "spaghetti code" problems with lots of #jQuery events firing to pull the strings. I'm seriously considering rewriting the stream with either #React or maybe #Vue. Before that happens, it would be nice to have a clearer idea of the future stream #UX.

If you want to give feedback or discuss these things, feel free to leave some comments here or get in touch via chats or GitHub issues. Private messages don't yet work in the #federation layer so please don't send those yet.

Project info

As a reminder for new readers. Socialhome is a #Django powered project aiming to create a platform that allows users to create a simple social profile with dynamic content. All content is federated using the #Diaspora protocol. Streams are in a central role, and we plan to have many types of streams, including custom per user streams.

You can find the code here and some documentation. The official site is https://socialhome.network which is a Socialhome instance itself and open for registration. Feel free to play around and feedback is always welcome!
