Mastodon is a federated microblogging engine. An alternative implementation of the GNU Social project. Based on ActivityStreams, Webfinger, PubsubHubbub and Salmon.
The core ideals of this project are:
Current status of the project is early development. Documentation, licensing information &co will be added later
LOCAL_DOMAIN should be the domain/hostname of your instance. This is absolutely required as it is used for generating unique IDs for everything federation-related
LOCAL_HTTPS set it to
true if HTTPS works on your website. This is used to generate canonical URLs, which is also important when generating and parsing federation-related IDs
HUB_URL should be the URL of the PubsubHubbub service that your instance is going to use. By default it is the open service of Superfeedr
