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
- Federation, obviously.
- Text posts
Basically, the bare minimum.
What I want to kill
- Multiple users
- Polls (Nobody seems to implement this extension)
What might stay
- API (depends on how annoying it is to come up with my own)
- Web Interface (I never use it, but I could see value in having one)
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.
