Project: Socialhome

Django application that provides users the ability to create content for their profile which is then displayed in grids. Content can be Markdown or HTML, featuring a WYSIWYG editor.

All content is designed to be federated using the Diaspora protocol. In addition to profile content, users will be able to create non-profile content (in a more traditional status message way) and read streams of other user content from local users or other nodes via the federation layer.

Powers this site.

Tech stack

Project: Social Relay

Social Relay is an application to relay public posts between nodes of The Federation (diaspora* and compatible social networking servers).

Keeps track of nodes and their subscription preferences, receives payloads and forwards the payloads to subscribers. The aim is to pass public posts around in an efficient way so any new node in the network can quickly subscribe to lots of public activity, without having to wait a long time to create social relationships.

Tech stack

Flask, RQ, SQLite, Peewee, federation, Py.test.
