I have migrated to, howecer federation isn’t ideal, so I have to keep this account.
Please contact me there and not here.

De momento não, e não vejo sentido em criar, mas estou sempre aberto a sugestões.

Does this mean the JWT config option is deprecated then?

Not at all. I run on a $5 Vultr VPS alongside some other small things. The VPS has been sitting at roughly 350/400MiB of RAM, and essentially never above 5% in the CPU. Lemmy uses less than 30MiB, PostgreSQL about 60/70 and pict-rs roughly 60.
The instance is small, but I don’t believe it will go beyond the system’s resources until it’s actually rather big, at which point it is likely I will have some financial support (many members have already expressed their availability to help out), so upgrading to a $10 plan shouldn’t be hard.

Também digo hehe. Já há algum tempo que queria correr um serviço federado para a comunidade tuga, e o Lemmy surgiu como uma bela oportunidade. Gosto do estilo de plataforma e o servidor é muito leve, portanto não tenho que adquiri um servidor novo logo no início.

Respondendo à tua questão, sim. Quando estiver tudo mais compostinho eu irei divulgar a plataforma em vários sítios, incluindo o /r/portugal (se me deixarem, mas há outros subs tb).

Calling something “shit” for not conforming with your way of doing things is unfair and and frankly unhelpful here. Vim does have unorthodox controls, but so do a lot of other programs. I fail to see how this is any different.

There is so much software with unique workflows, or rather much differing from more “casual” uses of a home computer, ranging from 3D, to music, to games, to, well, text editors. Yes you have to learn how to work with them, yes it is time you could have spent with your family, however I’d argue these are valuable learning experiences and ones that enrich your view of productivity. Knowing multiple methods for doing things will always help you better assess what suits you better.

You may not like Vim still, but you should give it a try before making any judgment.

Imo it’s unfortunately a popular misusage of the term. See my other comment.

I’d argue he’s not. A fediverse is any network of federated instances that are able to communicate with each other. AP is a way of achieving that, but there are plenty other federation protocols.

Yeah, I agree. I prefer the term ActivityPub Fediverse or similar, because each protocol has its own fediverses; Matrix and XMPP have their own fediverses too.

Ah, I thought it was really abandoned for a while. Thanks for the clarification!

I had never heard of that project, it indeed sounds interesting. Can you provide more info on the project itself and on what makes you say that last paragraph? Would love to read more on this

I see, I might try them one day then, thanks!

I think that’s a good plan. User following is a great feature but not as prominent as those others you mentioned.

For now, Manjaro KDE. I enjoy the powers of Arch with some heavy lifting on the setup and KDE’s endless customisability and flexibility.
One day I’ll install arch from scratch though.
I’ve used Debian, Ubuntu, Mint and a bit of Elementary and Solus in the past. Solus sounds nice but it’s still to young, elementary was a bit meh, but it has been years since I tried it. Mint was great too, and Ubuntu and Debian have surely changed a bit in the past 5 or so years.

Edit: regarding servers, I still exclusively use Ubuntu, not because I find it the best, but simply because I have not tried anything else yet. On that note, does anyone have any recommendations for me?

You make a good point yeah. However, I believe it went radio silent for a considerable amount of time. Not a big deal though.

Must be recent then. It was stopped for a big while. Either way, as the other commenter said, LocalCDN supports more stuff and works better.

This was sent in Lemmy’s Instance Admin room on Matrix. Dunno if that’s what you’re looking for.

A $10 VPS is overkill unless you have a lot of users really. A $5 one (1vCPU and 1GB of RAM) should be enough for quite a bit of users. In my case, I use Vultr, I think they are really great, but there are other hosts out there like DO and whatnot that have similar prices.

Regarding the domain, I’ve heard bad things about godaddy. I’ve been using PorkBun lately and it has been great; support is fast and helpful (had some troubles with payment and they solved it quickly). Again, it isn’t too important, since you can transfer domains to other registrars.

Everything else is on point 👌
I believe there’s also a Yunohost thingy for lemmy1, which would make it a 1-click process, essentially. However, that comes with some overhead, dunno how much.
