For everyone new or having a hard time with Mastodon instances here's a way I like to use to explain it to my friends using Harry Potter:
Think of Mastodon as Hogwarts and every instance is a house (Gryffindor, Slytherin, etc).
Every house has their common room (the one with the painting) where only the people of that house interact, here we call that room the Local Timeline.
But all houses can interact with each other in the dinning room, here it would be the Federated / Network Timeline.
Having my first mental breakdown in my whole developer career.
Mom's bad health, being his nurse so no sleep, missing all files of one the big projects right before the meeting with a director, being now responsable of the whole dev team and needing to create the whole workflow.
I did think I was able to handle all of it but am starting to fail...
Opppppsss you did it again? 😱
How do I save myself from myself?
Development has started a few days ago and the first rought draft is online at https://goldfish.social
The platform is build in Laravel from scratch and the plan is to also add ActivityPub so it can connect with the Fediverse in the future.
Our git repo will be updated when a good first version is done ✅
We also have a Patreon page for the project! Hopefully I can spend many many more hours on it's development ❤️
