About

Mastodon is web server software which provides a user interface to the OStatus and ActivityPub fediverses. It is written primarily in Ruby and JavaScript; Eugen Rochko is the creator and primary maintainer. The official code repository is on GitHub.

ActivityPub support was introduced in version 1.6, with the intention of making it Mastodon's primary communication protocol.

It also makes use of WebSub but I haven't found an explanation of how this fits in. -- Woozle

Notes

Wish list:

  • a way to set up auto-replies filtered by instance [1]
  • where X is a set of users chosen by user Y, collect stats about users who follow them or are followed by them (e.g. list users who follow a lot of them or are followed by a lot of them, possibly for autoblocking) and make those stats available to user Y.
