Package: wnpp Severity: wishlist * Package name : pleroma Version : 0.9.0 Upstream Author : lain <l...@soykaf.club> * URL : https://git.pleroma.social/pleroma/pleroma * License : AGPL-3.0 Programming Lang: elixir Description : an fediverse-compatible microblogging web/gopher server
Pleroma is a microblogging server software that can federate (= exchange messages with) other servers that support the same federation standards (OStatus and ActivityPub) - ie the Fediverse. This includes GNU Social, Mastodon, Peertube, Friendica and other servers. Using pleroma you can host a server for yourself/your friends/your community and stay in control of your online identity, but still exchange messages with people on larger servers across the fediverse. This package should not be confused with the pleroma frontend (pleroma-fe). Pleroma claims to be built on "a lot less technology than Mastodon", to be "High-performance", "light" on memory usage, and to be capable of running on a Rasperry Pi. Pleroma also supports gopher. Pleroma is ActivityPub even in its internal data structures. Activities are actually saved as JSON in the database, so the external and internal representations are the same. Why should you care? Because it makes it easier for Pleroma to add new Activity types. Adding a new Activity type in Pleroma involves no database changes, you just need to add some rules how to handle them. This will make it easier to add new features in the future.
