Mastodon

📕 text contributed by @bmann

Mastodon is an open source federated micro-blogging platform.

The Mastodon documentation site https://docs.joinmastodon.org/ covers what a microblog and federation are:

Similar to how blogging is the act of publishing updates to a website, microblogging is the act of publishing small updates to a stream of updates on your profile. You can publish text posts and optionally attach media such as pictures, audio, video, or polls. Mastodon lets you follow friends and discover new ones.

Federation is a form of decentralization. Instead of a single central service that all people use, there are multiple services, that any number of people can use.

The About statement on the Patreon from the main developer Gargron is also a good description:

I'm working on Mastodon, 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.

The entire network is like an unlimited number of different Twitter websites, users of which can follow each other and interact regardless of which Twitter website exactly they are on. This has obvious benefits as there is no single company that has a monopoly.

Mastodon is a [[social network]] and a part of [[fediverse]] running [[activity pub]].

[[2022-03-05]] I made an account: [[https://lor.sh/@bouncepaw]]. Feel free to follow.

= Links => https://github.com/blackle/mastodon-data-viewer.py

A viewer for mastodon data written in python. It creates a local server that you can use to browse the data. Designed for large (>40,000) toot archives.

= Mastodon Archive See also [[web archiving]].

[[2022-03-05]]:

Me: How easy is it to make a program that fetches my toots and threads I participate in? Maybe a program like that exists already? #programming Me: Workflow like: run the program and update the database (?) of fetched toots [[Schröder]]: @bouncepaw https://alexschroeder.ch/cgit/mastodon-archive/about/ could be it?

Taking a look.

=> https://alexschroeder.ch/cgit/mastodon-archive/about/

This tool allows you to make an archive of your statuses, your favourites and the media in both your statuses and your favourites. From this archive, you can generate a simple text file, or a HTML file with or without media.

Seems to be a perfect fit!

= Brutaldon Brutaldon is a brutalist front-end for Mastodon. I once used it and here's what I said back then:. The original toots are long gone.

//2022-04-11 21:21 UTC// Пишу это с BRUTALDON. А он мягкий такой, приятный. Этот туут уже пишу из w3m. Почему-то он плохо кириллицу отображает. По всей видимости, это косяк BRUTALDON. На другом сайте нормально кириллица выглядит. BRUTALDON кодирует кириллицу через HTML entities, а w3m это не понимает! Интересно. Непонятно, зачем так делать, если BRUTALDON отдаёт ответы в уникоде всё равно.
