Federation is now enabled for https://lemmy.ml !

Instructions for running your own lemmy instance.

For the moment, lemmy.ml is using an explicit allowlist for instances we federate with. If you currently run an instance, and would like to be added to join.lemmy.ml:

  • Let us know either on !lemmy_instances, or commenting here.
  • We’ll add you to our allowlist.
  • Add this block to your server’s lemmy.hjson config (for open federation):
federation: {
  enabled: true
  tls_enabled: true
  # allowed_instances: lemmy.ml,other_instance.tld,... uncomment this to use an allowlist
}
  • Type !announcements@lemmy.ml into your server’s search box, and subscribe to it to connect the two instances.

Hey look, a user from another instance!

That is excellent news! I think congratulations are required to the developers that made this possible :)

Edit: does that mean I can, say, log on to lemmy.ml with this account, or do I have to browse it from lemmygrad.ml?

No, but you can directly interact with posts and comments on lemmy.ml (like you are doing now). Check this:

https://lemmy.ml/post/42833

https://lemmygrad.ml/post/9334

That’s interesting. I see that I still do everything from Lemmygrad, including subscribing to federated communities or posting content there.

Nice! It also looks like dev.lemmy.ml changed to lemmy.ml.

Nice, does it mean lemmy is considered stable now ?

Yes, but of course finding bugs is a never-ending process.

Hrm, I haven’t thought about that, but our next release is v0.9.0 so we pry won’t skip over that.

Looks like it’s working ✌

can we have ‘local’ as option for the rss feeds please? We use these quite a bit to crosspost to mastodon & reddit

This is great! I read there will also be federation amongst the entire fediverse soon. What exactly does this look like? Being able to sign in with mastodon accounts or?

@nutomic

No, it means that it will be possible to view and comment on Lemmy posts directly from Mastodon. But don’t expect that to work anytime soon.

ah ok, makes sense.

P.S. I know this isn’t the place to do this but any chance we can get ctrl + Enter to submit a post

@nutomic

I think we have an issue for this (might be closed, too lazy to search it).

test EDIT: just searched through the github and the issue that asks for the feature mentions that its possible to submit by pressing tab + enter and the issue is closed. Tab + enter does work but I think ctrl + enter would be much better since its what used in most websites and apps.

i took a few months off from posting. I missed you all, and I’m glad to see new folks here. Congrats on the fruits of your labor comrades <3
