@celia If you don’t want the hassle of fiddling with a reverse proxy, perhaps you could add local dns entries in your hosts file?

@celia I love docker sometimes! Being able to build a config locally and then with a couple of commands to transfer it to another host just seems like cheating!

@jbauer: Could you do a follow-up post in a week or two outlining any differences etc you've encountered between Pleroma and Mastodon? I'm royally sick of hosting my own Mastodon instance today.

Networking is HARD!

I'm trying to get some of my network traffic permanently going through a network-wide VPN connection. I actually have that set on my Edgerouter with a network group of devices...but they then can't access my locally self-hosted applications which are _not_ going through the VPN! I know it's not a port forward issue...at best guess it's a DNAT issue...and it's driving me nuts.

Not entirely sure why, but suddenly apps are not connecting to my mastodon instance...awesome. Connections are just timing out but the web interface works fine...Given the articles I've seen recently about and reading the experience of @jbauer I'm immediately wondering about migration. I'll leave it a few hours and hope it's just my VPS having issues or the tech Gods decide to impart blessings.

Stop mirroring your Twitter account to the fediverse, especially these retweets of a single picture without any caption or comment.

We used to say the Web had shrunk to four websites where people posted only screenshots from the other three, let's not add a fifth one to that dumpster fire.

Getting the u-syndicated microformat embedded into posts in a way that isn't irritatingly manual has pushed me towards a total hack-job solution...but it seems to work.: cshire.xyz/my-ridiculous-workf

@nicolapcweek94 No problem mate, I’m only ever so slightly ahead of you…and getting stuck regularly!

@nicolapcweek94 Hugo and webmentions were a real pain for me! Not sure what you’re site hosting situation is, but found zerokspot.com/weblog/2020/06/1 to be easy enough to get running to receive and github.com/PlaidWeb/Pushl for sending. Hope this helps!

How are people with static sites adding their syndicated content? I can use brid.gy to automatically POSSE a post to Mastodon, but I’m not crazy about the idea of then manually adding the POSSE’d links to my posts and republishing the site - Are there any utilities to fetch the POSSE’d URLs from Brid.gy/ RSS feed etc that can be embedded in a Hugo generated page?

I read more about #AMP for #email. There's plenty of articles on why this is bad, too, just like AMP for sites. Have at it! 🙂

Getting the last pieces of the Webmentions puzzle sorted to better integrate IndieWeb tech into my site!: cshire.xyz/pushl-and-brid.gy-i

Using this post as a test to see if responses are working between Brid.gy and my site…All of this is rather harder than I initially realised!

@zerok Have you seen what GitHub student offers? Students can grab a free domain name from either name.com or namecheap, as well as a digital ocean droplet and more! I assume this would be accessible in Europe, my students in Asia have signed up! Perhaps not exactly the same as DoOO, but I think it’s pretty sweet- hackernoon.com/guide-to-github

@xosem @AntonioVinas I think podcasts in general could be handled better to entice the conscious crowd- not sure I like a future where people equate podcasts with Spotify/ Apple etc rather than something as open as it is accessible. I’m an iOS user, so not sure gpodder would work for me. Seems like there is a gap in the market for this! Cheers for the suggestion though!

@xosem @AntonioVinas I’ll check it out! I really wanted mobile clients too- I like having sync between devices, but don’t like having apple know what I’m syncing and listening to etc and would rather self host the back end.

A personal Mastodon server. If we're going to decentralise the web and wrestle some control back from the corporations who monetise our data, projects like this needs to be supported!
