Hey there fellow developers & contributors to the project,

as you might have seen, we’ve changed how the local installation of the website works for developers. We switched to using Docker now, which is a tool that can bundle certain software and make other developers access that same bundle pre-configured and therefore running without any troubles or additional installation steps.

Before, a lot of tools and configurations needed to be installed to start up a local server for this project. Nowadays it’s as easy as downloading the source and the docker image and you’re ready to go.

Make sure you consult the Readme to see how the new installation process works.

Additionally, we’re currently improving testing of all modules involved and migrating to a new testing service that ensures that the website has as little bugs as possible (in a perfect world that’d be zero).

Aside from working on the end-user experience I am also working on the developer experience, to make it as hassle-free as possible.

If you decide to download the project and contribute to it, feel free to let me know how the new installation feels.

Reminder that everything you see on this site is 100% open source.

If you’re a developer and you want to fix a bug or improve something, you have the power to do that by yourself. Don’t wait for me to fix it because my time is limited and I can’t work on everything at once. Take matters into your own hands.

If Go is new to you, learn it via gobyexample.com. It took me a week to get the hang of it.

This website is a community effort and with the right technical knowledge, anyone can help.

Just writing down some stuff that needs to be fixed in the near future:

  • Tooltips are currently bound to the element leading to clipping issues
  • When you’re on the notification page and a notification arrives, you can’t click on the icon
  • The media info for the next radio track could be sent in 1 response instead of 2
  • Explore buttons are not visible on mobile
  • Post actions overlap with the actual post text when the last line is long
  • Post date hover overlaps with the profile column
