✨ Solo by Pixelfed

We've been secretly building a single user federated photo sharing server (based on Pixelfed), with minimal setup, and built-in import

Solo is simple, download the code, drag your photos to the media directory and open your browser

So simple, yet super smart, Solo won't get in your way, but it will impress

Launching Oct 2023

✨ Authorized Fetch + Pixelfed

Enforce domain blocks at the federation level with Authorized Fetch, a feature borrowed from our @Mastodon friends.

⚡ Allowlist Mode - Only federate with predefined instances

⚡ Denylist Mode - Federate with all, except banned instances

⚡ Hybrid Mode - Queue activities from unapproved instances, and accept/reject each instance (w/ triggers and custom rules to partially automate this)

Platform safety is crucial to us, and we look forward to shipping this 🚀
