I think I will now add 15% to my hourly rate if you force me to use Microsoft Teams 🤪

Do you need a polyglot developer who can write Ruby, Elixir and Typescript? My current gig working on a React Native App with a Ruby Backend comes to an end this month

I am available for freelance projects starting on the 1st of September.

I'm rolling out some infrastructure configuration changes which may result in some intermittent downtime .. I apologize in advance, we'll be back in no time :)

Surprise! We're tooting on Mastodon 3.5.2 now .. felt in the mood for a late Friday afternoon deployment 🧐 🐘

@ksietsma @judeswae I think most of these apps aren't really tested on Omniauth-enabled instances (because they are quite rare). Omniauth is the framework that enables all sorts of auth methods in Rails (social logins, SAML etc.)

I wish I had something to help you out here, but in the end it all hinges on being able to test different configurations on a configured instance that uses some of these methods for auth (or just SAML)

I'm pleased to note that even dolphin.town, my Mastodon server where the only letter you are allowed to post is "e", has seen increased activity in the last few days.

Thanks Eeeeelon!

@judeswae @ksietsma Unfortunately, there is no "easy" way to test the SAML integration .. I observed a similar behavior with other apps before and it helped to just run through the same routine again (because you're now logged in it might work).

I think the issue lies somewhere between the apps obscure expectations and us not accepting "any" redirect (i.e. app expects the SAML workflow to redirect the response towards a local response; but our SAML configuration doesn't allow for that)

Can't wait for the new arrivals to discover they can use their fedi account to follow video channels on @peertube instances, photo stories on @pixelfed instances, events on @mobilizon , musicians on @funkwhale , and @owncast streams.


As one of the main Mastodon developers, I can't promise you that Mastodon will be a complete and exact Twitter replacement for you, but it may fit your use-cases, at least it does for me.

Just keep in mind that it is not exactly the same thing, some core design decisions are different (there isn't an unique centrally-governed website, but many interconnected servers operated by different individuals and organizations) and thus the tradeoffs can be different as well.

While I personally don't think Mastodon should aim at being an exact replacement to Twitter, I do hope Mastodon can be useful to more people wanting an alternative to Twitter! And I know there are lots of room for improvement, on things we do know, and on things we don't.

Also keep in mind that Mastodon is developed by only two core developers payed through a non-profit funded through sponsorship, grants and donations, so please be patient!

Dear new users:

It's alright to take your time and get up to speed on here. You don't have to hit the ground running. You might have picked up the habit of interacting with social media as it it were naturally a competitive performance--we all did--but the best thing about Mastodon and the fediverse beyond it is that it's not like that. Take some time to decompress.

It took me about six months to fully drop the armor that I'd been wearing from being on other sites. That was three years ago. This place changes lives.

Also, it's okay to be picky. Sign up at a new instance, if the first one you pick isn't the best fit possible. You'll find your home, and folks here understand it takes trial and error.

Above all, take a deep breath. What feels weird now will make sense pretty quickly.

Glad to have you.
