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.

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
