Thanks for reading!
We're organizing a long-term fundraising for #GoToSocial, on #OpenCollective! Some of you may have already supported us over on Liberapay, which we're incredibly grateful for, and it has helped us jumpstart some of this process (and to pay for our cute sloth logo!). In future, we want to use Open Collective.
Our short-term goals are simple.
Firstly, we want to be able to pay people for code contributions to the project, when they need it.
Secondly, we're looking for contributions to help us cover basic costs like hosting fees for our automated build system.
Finally, we also want to be able to put money forward for translation work, graphic design, accessibility audits, security audits, or any other small pieces of work that GoToSocial might require.
Eventually, we want to be able to hire developers, either salaried or freelance. As a milestone on the way to this goal, we're looking to make SuperSeriousBusiness into a non-profit organization by the end of 2022.
Fair disclosure: I haven't done React in years, and have never made a PWA. You might be answering a lot of questions... but I'm a quick learner and very mobile with things. You can also _just_ point me to definitive and succinct resources.
More fair disclosure: I'm extremely picky about UI/UX.
@ me if interested.
This is a side project and well, expect the things that come with that territory.
"This release brings some serious database performance improvements thanks to some new indexes and other optimizations we made to queries. If your GtS instance was feeling sluggish this will likely make it feel new and fresh again.
We've also introduced worker pools and queuing to media processing, which should ensure that your instance doesn't get overwhelmed when doing lots of remote dereferencing.
Another neat thing: you can properly edit your profile now without getting spammed with html, phew.
Oh yes, and self-boosting!"
#GoToSocial is an ActivityPub/fediverse server written in Golang, currently in Alpha development (https://docs.gotosocial.org).
Lightweight for self-hosting is #GoToSocial but it is also still quite new and developing fast. Also #Pleroma is lighter than mastodon, and around for a longer time.
