The history of Hubzilla


A somewhat older (2016) but still interesting article about the history of Hubzilla. Also contains a biography of Mike Macgirvin the developer that started Friendica, Hubzilla and Osada. It's interesting to learn that Mike launched Mistpark, the predecessor of Friendica, before Diaspora*.

You can find people to follow across the #ActivityPub #Fediverse by using the unofficial #Trunk directory:

https://communitywiki.org/trunk

It's organised by category and is strictly opt-in, so it only lists people who actively ask to be listed.

(Unfortunately #Diaspora doesn't use ActivityPub, but if you're seeing this on #Friendica you can use Trunk.)

 
Für meine Artikelreihe über die Kommunikation zwischen #friendica, #Hubzilla und #Diaspora möchte ich gern ein paar Überlegungen überprüfen.

Dafür brauche ich eure #Hilfe.

Nutzer von friendica oder Hubzilla bekommen (noch) keine Mitteilung, wenn ein Beitrag von ihnen weitergesagt wird. Natürlich kann es sein, dass sie den weitergesagten Beitrag in ihrem Stream sehen, wenn einer ihrer Kontakte weitergesagt hat.

Aber mir ist auf Diaspora oft anders gegangen, wenn ich eine #Frage hatte. Da wurde der Beitrag von Nutzern weitergesagt, die ich nicht kannte, weil sie sich für das Thema meiner Frage interessiert h... Show more...

Gestern ist eine neue Version der von mir hier verwendeten Plattform #Friendica erschienen, mit zahlreichen Neuerungen - unter anderem spricht Friendica nun auch #ActivityHub, das standardisierte W3C-Protokoll zum Datenaustausch zwischen verteilten dezentralen Netzwerken.

Auf GooglePlus habe ich dazu auch noch mal was geschrieben. Aber da das dort ja demnächst alles gelöscht wird, füge ich hier lieber einen Screenshot davon ein als einen Link dorthin:




Stattdessen lieber noch die in dem Posting genannten Links:

Hallo @Gert Johannimloh willkommen auf meinem #Friendica Server, bei Fragen einfach melden.

Am Anfang ist es gut einen ersten Beitrag zu verfassen, mit dem Hashtag "neuhier", also #neuhier in der Nachricht, dazu noch ein kleiner Text, also zum Beispiel so:
Hallo ich bin #neuhier und interessiere mich für #Natur, #Kunst, #Katzen und gehe gerne #wandern.

Dieser Beitrag wird dann, sofern als öffentlicher Beitrag erstellt, auch an andere Server verteilt, über die Hashtags finden andere Nutzer mit gleichen Interessen den Beitrag. So lernt man neue Menschen kennen und es kommt ein bisschen Aktivität in die eigene Timeline. Grundsätzlich funktioniert das auch mit jedem weiteren Beitrag, Tags helfen bei der Vernetzung sehr.

Nach dem Absenden des Beitrag kann man auch direkt den verwendeten Tags selber folgen, dafür diese einfach über die Suche (oben) nacheinander suchen und jede Suche speichern. Durch das speichern der Suche fordert mein Server von anderen Servern Beiträge mit diesen Tags an.

 
I like that you can rename people you follow here on #Friendica. There are some people who like to have ridiculous display names. Looking at you @Leo Brown

The federated social network #Friendica has just released its new version 2019.01, which now includes full #ActivityPub support:

https://github.com/friendica/friendica/releases/tag/2019.01

Thanks to ActivityPub, it federates with Mastodon, PixelFed, Pleroma, PeerTube, NextCloud Social, Osada, Hubzilla etc.

Friendica also still has federation with #Diaspora, so if you're wanting to follow ActivityPub accounts without leaving your Diaspora friends, Friendica might be a good option.

Friendica 2019.01 released
We are pleased to announce the availability of Friendica The Tazmans Flax-lily 2019.01, which bundles up our work since September 2018. This includes over 130 fixed issues and some exciting new features. If you are interested in all of them, please have a look at the CHANGELOG file.

Most noteworthy of these changes are:
- Friendica does now natively support ActivityPub (AP) in addition to the DFRN, diaspora\* and OStatus protocols. The AP functionality was tested with Hubzilla, Mastodon, Nextcloud Social, Osada, PeerTube, Pixelfed and Pleroma.
- The configuration structure has changed again! Your old .htconfig.php and config/local.ini.php

Sharing Photos In Private Posts


When you share public posts, photos are transferred to users of other systems along with the text of the post. Occasionally a photo gets lost along the way, but that's no issue with authentication, but with federation.

Things change, when you share a private post with photos.

On Diaspora you can have EXIFs automatically removed from your photos in the settings section. You always upload a photo into a specific post. The photo is assigned a link and the photo is public. Yet the link to a photo contains a long string of random characters, so the photo is hard to find.

Friendica and Hubzilla have photo albums. So users can upload photos into posts or into photo albums. That means the access to a post and the access to photos are controlled independently. Friendica and Hubzilla also do not automatically remove EXIFs from photos. Depending on your settings EXIFs can reveal the time the photo was taken, the camera model and the location. EXIFs can be removed before uploading a photo.

Friendica-Forum: Aprender Español


Nachdem ich hier bei #Friendica nun auch die Möglichkeit habe, eigene #Foren bzw. #Communities zu betreiben, möchte ich es auch mal damit versuchen. Ich habe bislang auf Friendica und Hubzilla, also den Plattformen innerhalb der dezentralen Netzwerke, wo so was möglich ist, noch nichts gefunden, wo es um das Erlernen der spanischen Sprache geht. Da ich genau das seit einiger Zeit so nebenher versuche, soll das auch das Thema meines ersten eigenen Friendica-Forums sein. Ein Ort für Leute, die gerade #Spanisch lernen, es lernen wollen, oder es schon gelernt haben und ihr Wissen weitergeben wollen. Ein Ort für Leute, die nicht nur 3000 Sonnenstunden im Jahr haben, sonder... Show more...

 
Mal ne Frage:

Wenn man das, was man bei #Pleroma, #GNUSocial, #Mastodon doer #MissKey als "Microblogging" bezeichnet, wie bezeichnet man dann das, was man bei #Friendica, #Hubzilla oder #Diaspora macht? #Verb

Ist das dann "Makroblogging"?

 

Friendica 2019.01 – I'm so excited 🎉


Tonight's the night we're gonna make it happen ❓
Tonight we'll put all other things aside
Give in this time and show your exaltation
We're going for those pleasures byte by byte

I want to love you, feel you
Wrap myself around you
I want to squeeze you, please you
I just can't get enough
And even if you're late you will be great 😂

I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it
I'm about to lose control and I think I like it
I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it
And I know, I know, I know, I know
I know I want you ⬇️

Very soon: Friendica 2019.01 release 🎉 🎈 😃

Wir sind kurz vor dem nächsten #Friendica Release. Wir haben für dieses Release 132 Issues bearbeitet und 377 Pull Requests erstellt.

Dies alles ist von Anfang September bis heute geschehen. D.h. pro Tag haben wir ein Issue bearbeitet und 2-3 Pull Requests erstellt. Ich finde das super! Vielen Dank an alle Beteiligten, egal ob ihr programmiert, getestet oder "einfach nur" eure Wünsche geäußert habt!

 
Sharing Across Platforms

If you are on Diaspora and you want to get some other user's public posts, you add the contact. If someone else wants to get your posts, she adds you as a contact. You will then be notified and can decide, if you add that contact as well or not. You can sort your contacts into aspects and share private post with some some aspects, but not others. It is not obvious, if the other user is on Diaspora, friendica or Hubzilla. The name of his server might be an indication, that's all. Once someone follows you, she remains on your contact list. There is no way for you to remove her. Over time your contact list therefore gets cluttered with contacts who have stopped using their accounts long ago.

If you want to get someone's public posts you add that user to your contacts. You get to see the profile of the user, if you like, the page with the public posts before you add the user, so you know which platform he uses. You will get to see a Diaspora user's public posts, after you add him. A Hubzilla user gets to decide which permissions you... Show more...

First of all a user has to create an account. If you don't have a recommendation already, it's difficult to decide where to sign up.

Should you consider signing up for an(other) account these two lists help, although the information isn't necessarily up to date or complete.

Diaspora: There are quite a few well maintained pods that accept registrations from anyone.

Friendica: There are some well maintained pods that accept registrations from anyone. Features vary a lot.

Hubzilla: There are few hubs that accept registrations from anyone. Many hubs are used by the owner with family and friends only.

Who you first "meet" after signing up depends on the server you have chosen. Diaspora and friendica have public streams that show all posts and comments that somehow ended up on that server. Hubzilla can have a public stream. My Hubzilla server doesn't.

When you sign up to a server... Show more...

 

About The Decentralized Network


Yesterday I signed up to friendica. I already have this account on Hubzilla and another one on Diaspora. I've just begun to explore friendica and thought it might be a good idea to take notes. Then I realized it may make sense to share these notes, because you probably all have contacts with users from the two other platforms and it may be interesting for you to see what they can and cannot do. Some things look confusing from the perspective of a another platform.

The most common odd thing Diaspora users will have seen is friendica users seemingly talking to themselves in the comments, when they are really replying to mastodon comments that are not federated to Diaspora.

I'm aware that there are differences between servers as well. Friendica and Hubzilla have lots of features the admin can install or not. Diaspora can be customized. From what I have seen pluspora looks quite different from the other Diaspora pods.

I can only write about my experience with the servers I have signed up to, of course. I'm merely a user, I... Show more...

It is not so difficult to connect to contacts in #diaspora or #mastodon or #friendica starting from #hubzilla....

The important thing is to know certain aspects:
-you need to find a hub/site that has plugins enabled
-it is necessary to install the apps

Take a look in this video ( in this case 2 diaspora and 1 mastodon):

Oha - Doch ganz schön unterschiedlich


Ich habe zu Testzwecken einen Account auf #Diaspora (Pluspora) eröffnet, weil ich wissen wollte wie das mit der #Formatierung bei Friendica dann drüben bei Diaspora aussieht.

Ja gut... Die Möglichkeiten der Formatierung sind bei D* dann doch ganz schön eingeschränkt im Vergleich zu #Friendica und manche Dinge werden dort einfach falsch formatiert oder gleich gar nicht erst angezeigt - bzw. dann nur als einfacher Link.

Das ist natürlich ein bisschen unschön. Auch hatte ich vor kurzem hier auf Friendica das Problem, dass mir scheinbar ein Link eines D* Posts nicht angezeigt wurde und der Beitrag für mich lediglich aus einem einzigen Hashtag bestand. Andererseits ist es natürlich toll, dass die Kommunikation zwischen den unterschiedlichen Plattformen überhaupt... Show more...

 
\#Friendica and fediverse.network what are these requests sent to a #Wordpress site? I mean, I don't know the contents of these files. If I try those requests in the referrer's site, most are none existent.

\* /api/statusnet/version.json
\* /api/statusnet/config

Any of the above I can redirect to one of these? (Example URLs provided so you can check what's in these.)

Ist Friendica wohl geeignet? Mal sehen...

Going to boost this from Mastodon. Curious if folks can see this.

#Socialhome

I was trying out Socialhome today. It is like browsing through #Diaspora with new eyes and much faster.

Socialhome uses the #Diaspora protocol but is visualized in a grid somewhat like Pinterest, great for having a quick look at profiles and browsing images.

Here's what my account looks like:





Apart from Diaspora, Socialhome also federates on servers from #Friendica and #Hubzilla platforms. It is developed by Diasporas own @Jason Robinson 🐍🍻 and well worth checking out 😀

Since the last git pull on the Friendica rc a couple of days ago, the CPU usage of MariaDB seems to have rocketed and I'm regularly getting high load warnings. It should be said that I hadn't done a pull for a few weeks before that. Whatever it's doing, I thought it might have settled down by now.... are there any checks I can make or actions to take? @Friendica Support #friendica #mariadb

 
Few random questions running through my mind as I sit here watching my son play 'cut the rope'.

Is #pleroma #activitypub only or can it communicate with diaspora?

How does #friendica compare with #hubzilla in terms of resource usage... ie impact on system load. I'm thinking along the line of single user instances here.

Are there any tweaks that can be made to friendica to make it 'lighter' if only used as a single user instance?

Are friendica and hubzilla the only 2 systems that are capable of full communication with both diaspora and mastodon?

I have to admit, I've been tempted by the claims of being ultra lightweight by pleroma, but I wouldn't want to lose the ability to communicate with diaspora

Again I would like to apologize for the longer duration of the reboot last Friday, but it seems the performance is much better now, the queue of #Friendica is much shorter now than before and it gets completed fast as well.

Ich möchte mich nochmal für den länger dauernden Neustart des Servers am Freitag entschuldigen, die durchgeführten Änderungen haben scheinbar Erfolg. Die Warteschleife von #Friendica ist nun kürzer und wird auch schneller abgearbeitet.

♲ Admin (of friendica.utzer.de) (admin@friendica.utzer.de):
I will quickly reboot friendica.utzer.de in 15 minutes.

Could we add some suggested php extensions in Install.md?

I did not know that it is strongly recommended to use "sysvsem" and "memcached" which I learned during the #35c3.
Is that extensions that you have enabled or have those been enabled by default?

I am not sure where to add that information and how much explaination would be reasonable to add with it.

Also other extensions needed are "imagick", "curl", "gd", "iconv", "mysqli" and "pdo_mysql". Maybe there is more, let me know!

I think this would make setting up #Friendica easier for beginners and it would avoid to run it without all suggested extensions.

I would add the information to the file, let me know what you think and leave any comment that comes to mind here.

Can't read comments from Hubzilla


♲ Eric Buijs (ericbuijs1@squeet.me):
@Friendica Support

I was reading this post https://squeet.me/display/adb58850f9b901363d0c005056264835 yesterday and noted that I couldn't read the comments made by a Hubzilla user (giavec@zotum.net). A friend here told me he could read it from his Libranet.de account so I was wondering if this a problem on the squeet.me server.

On /login in a mobile browser I cannot select the user name field. I think that the friendica logo is blocking the field.

I think there is some change needed. Is this #Friendica or #Frio related?

During a #Friendica update I get this:

There is no composer.json anymore, shouldn't there be one?

 
Dear @Eric Buijs are you really talking about not seeing the comments of giavec@zotum.net ? That's weird, because from #Friendica and located on #Libranet.de I'm seeing his comments.

PHP Errors

@Friendica Support

On the latest RC (pulled earlier today), I decided to take a little look at the PHP log. Not sure how much help any of it is. I've looked at the last 10000 lines, which doesn't take me back any earlier than todays date. The vast majority are the third error listed below. All lines are made up of just the following four. I'm on php7.2 by the way.

This error probably isn't very helpful as I'm not sure what triggered it and I'm struggling to replicate it.

So I added the activitypub plugin for my Wordpress site and proceeded to get very excited. I'm supposed to be able to follow via hillexplorer@hillexplorer.com but unfortunately am getting the message 'network type could not be detected' when trying to add. The webfinger test appears to pass ok though...

.. I really liked Squirrelmail on one of the websites I used to run. .No idea how it has evolved or if it is still around though.
I decided "long ago" to get a shared hosting in Iceland (quite good laws there) to host my own email and by the way some website (phpBB boards - an own #friendica instance).
These days i think that's the way to go.
I guess that's the only way to be aware of any request that is issued "by the law" and also you get away of all the bad aspects of those commercial mass hosters like gmail/hotmail and so on.

My hoster used squirrel, right now they offer #roundcube or #squirrelmail, to access use GNUlinux/thunderbird or the respective app on android ..
