so what're people's thoughts on a good self-hostable fedi server that's not extremely expensive to host on a VPS but whose devs aren't literal scum
@tindall based on my knowledge of the words “literal” and “scum” i would think that means mostly all of the low-resource ones, like pleroma. thinking of switching to that one myself, or perhaps finding a golang impl (or making my own)
Go-Fed is BSD 3-clause:
As for Epicyon, its design goals are well suited for its intended use case and AGPL does not require distributing your source modifications to host a server
Yes. It's a library... Because setting up an http server in Go is such a pain in the ass
When it's up, the site has a really straight forward tutorial. Also, @cj had plans for something approaching a finished server behaving more like a bulletin board, but there is WriteAs and a list of other finished services if you want to hack on something that'll provide immediate feedback
@mike now i should show you the php apps i have been asked variously to maintain over the last 20 years for contrast.
