Make your own API using Nginx:
For anyone trying to get used to working remotely, there are multiple #CodiMD instances available for public use, including our official demo. Here are some of them 👇
https://demo.codimd.org from us
https://pad.nixnet.services from @amolith https://pad.snopyta.org from @snopyta
https://md.fossdaily.xyz from @caltlgin
If you're able to host CodiMD yourself, instructions for doing so can be found in the repo below 😊
On a side note, all features are working again for the old (.xyz) instance 😏
After about a day of downtime, we are back
https://masto.nixnet.xyz is running on a spare server while I set glitch-soc up on the main one. They'll both run for about a month to give my users a change to migrate and to allow remote accounts pick up on the migration.
@schoentoon I wish I could but there are so many awesome web services that rely on it 😢
hold my beer
Migrating to the new instance will have the added benefit of correcting some long-running issues of the current one. It's an old instance and my hacking on it has resulted in some minor but really annoying issues; namely, broken meta images and a running but nonfunctioning mastodon-streaming service. Home timelines updates are slow, federated timeline only shows new posts on a full page refresh, and scrolling to the bottom of the notifications does nothing. It just ends when it should pull older notifications from the server. It also uses a ton of storage and restarting would fix that 😉
If I can swing it, I think I'll set my Mastodon instance up on a new domain tomorrow. I'll have to do some testing beforehand to see how much will break in the process. I'd really rather not run two instances but I also want to make sure my users have the chance to migrate so I'll leave both up for a month or so.
Should I move the #NixNetMail documentation to my #MediaWiki instance or leave it on the main site? Everything is handwritten HTML so, as the number of docs increases, the work needed to maintain it all will increase as well. Along with that, moving it to MediaWiki would also make everything else more discoverable
I've moved to @amolith. Once this server catches up on federation and discovers the new one, I'll migrate over there.
