A self-hosted, single-user, ActivityPub powered microblog.

builds.sr.ht status AGPL 3.0

Instances in the wild:

There are still some rough edges, but the server is mostly functional.


  • Implements the ActivityPub server to server protocol
    • Federate with all the other popular ActivityPub servers like Pleroma, PixelFed, PeerTube, Mastodon...
    • Consume most of the content types available (notes, articles, videos, pictures...)
  • Exposes your ActivityPub profile as a minimalist microblog
    • Author notes in Markdown, with code highlighting support
    • Dedicated section for articles/blog posts (enabled when the first article is posted)
  • Lightweight
    • Uses SQLite, and Python 3.10+
    • Can be deployed on small VPS
  • Privacy-aware
    • EXIF metadata (like GPS location) are stripped before storage
    • Every media is proxied through the server
    • Strict access control for your outbox enforced via HTTP signature
  • No Javascript
    • The UI is pure HTML/CSS
    • Except tiny bits of hand-written JS in the note composer to insert emoji and add alt text to images
  • IndieWeb citizen
  • Easy to backup
    • Everything is stored in the data/ directory: config, uploads, secrets and the SQLite database.
