my pleroma patches got merged yesterday! thanks @kaniini

https://git.pleroma.social/pleroma/pleroma/merge_requests/1917

if you're running pleroma from the develop branch, you can now add this config to make it so that profiles and statuses can be shown as server-generated HTML without loading up the whole pleroma-fe JavaScript application:

config :pleroma, :static_fe,
enabled: true

@technomancy @kaniini I wish Pleroma server can be installed without the Pleroma-FE and used entirely from mobile apps and alternative webapps.

I like how Riot and Matrix Synapse are separate from each other. The server has no requirement for a particular client.

Pleroma-FE is currently required for registration and OAuth authentication workflows making it indispensable. A small installation has to serve both the frontend and backend. I want to be able to host just the backend.
