Towards A Tinier Federation


This idea has been kicking around in my head for a while that I really don't need all the overhead of GNU social. It's not exactly the heaviest weight web app in the world but social.tekk.in, like statusnet.tekk.com.ar and tekk.com.ar/statusnet before it, is a single-user instance. Running on the assumption that there is only one user I feel like quite a bit could be simplified and cut back, among my own little breaking choices. Yes, I know Social has a single user mode



What I want to keep





Basically, the bare minimum.



What I want to kill





What might stay





I have another post to make, so I'm pushing this one out a little bit premature. I intended this to be a living post anyway so it's hardly the world's biggest deal. I'm still working out what I want from this.
