#friendica

Finally squashed the stats peaks on The-Federation.info.

Now, if only the number of active users would go up instead of declining since the peak 2,5 years ago :(

fail2ban: not working because of time zone mismatch

Hi,
I'm trying to enable fail2ban for Friendica. The failregex is working...
failregex= ^.*auth\.php.*failed login attempt.*from IP &_lt_;HOST&_gt_;.*$
The Friendica jail is loaded w/o any errors...
Creating new jail 'friendica'<br></br>Jail 'friendica' uses pyinotify<br></br>Set jail log file encoding to UTF-8<br></br>Initiated 'pyinotify' backend<br></br>Set banTime = 7200<br></br>Set jail log file encoding to UTF-8<br></br>Set maxRetry = 3<br></br>Set findtime = 600<br></br>Added logfile = /var/log/friend.log
Also the fail2ban regex test is successful...
fail2ban-regex -v /var/log/friend.log /etc/fail2ban/filter.d/friendica.conf<br></br>Failregex: 8 total<br></br>|- #) [# of hits] regular expression<br></br>| 1) [8]^.*auth\.php.*failed login attempt.*from IP &_lt_;HOST&_gt_;.*$<br></br>| 77.64.253.145 Sat Aug 19 08:55:17 2017<br></br>| 77.64.253.145 Sat Aug 19 09:34:16 2017<br></br>| 77.64.253.145 Sat Aug 19 09:34:53 2017<br></br>| 77.64.253.145 Sat Aug 19 09:38:30 2017<br></br>| 77.64.253.145 Sat Aug 19 09:40:45 2017<br></br>| 77.64.253.145 Sat Aug 19 09:45:04 2017<br></br>| 77.64.253.145 Sat Aug 19 10:06:03 2017<br></br>| 77.64.253.145 Sat Aug 19 10:10:19 2017<br></br>Lines: 51770 lines, 0 ignored, 8 matched, 51762 missed [processed in 6.80 sec]
But fail2ban doesn't find/ban any IP on failed logins. I think the problem is related to non-matching timezones. My server (and fail2ban) is using timezone Europe/Berlin and the Friendica log is using timezone UTC.

I tried to change the timezone of the Friendica log in .htconfig.php:
$default_timezone = 'Europe/Berlin';
No success. Log file is still on UTC.

How can I change this?
Or how can I tell fail2ban to take the friendica log timezone into account?

Any ideas or hints?

Meine #Friendica -Instanz musste ich leider wieder abgeschaltet :-(

Ich hatte aber die Gelegenheit, meinen Account mit meinen Kontakten zu exportieren. Mir stellt sich jetzt die Frage, ob ich die hier auf #Hubzilla importieren soll bzw. kann. Wird das klappen?

The Federation

The Federation refers to a global social network composed by nodes talking together. Each of them is an installation of a software which supports the #diaspora* protocol.

The site

Visit The-Federation.info for node lists, statistics and information how to list your own node.

Follow

This account will be posting out statistics on a daily/weekly basis. The posts will be tagged according to frequency, so instead of following the account you can also subscribe to the hashtags. At least the following hashtags will be used:

#thefederation #diaspora #friendica #hubzilla #ganggo #socialhome

The Federation

Mmh, #Friendica rödelt sich noch immer einen Wolf, load ist aktuell bei fünf. Aber mein Posting im Forum Friendica Support ist dort nicht angekommen …

Nach einem git pull scheint meine #Friendica -Installation wieder zu laufen. Zwar zäh, aber es tut sich wieder etwas.

pump.io :-(

Ich mache mir hin und wieder Gedanken um den Funktionsumfang und das Benutzererlebnis von Friendica.

Vor ein paar Wochen habe ich auf meiner Instanz das pump.io Plugin aktiviert. Jetzt habe ich getestet, ob es denn auch funktioniert. Dafür brauchte ich einen pump.io Account.

Was soll ich sagen? Der Friendica Connector funktioniert. Die Erfahrungen mit pump.io lassen mich allerdings ratlos zurück.

Auf pump.io gibt es einen Button "Try it now!". Dieser führt zu <https: .="" datamost.com=""> Laut Wikipedia soll der Button eine zufällige Instanz auswählen. Wie oft man auch drückt, man landet immer auf dem selben Server. Aber egal. Das Registrieren funktioniert reibungslos. Texte kann man auch schreiben und unfallfrei versenden. Beim Bilderupload bzw. dem Versenden von Bildern gibt es aber Probleme. Geht entweder gar nicht oder es wird ein leerer Beitrag versendet. Ein Fotoalbum o.ä., wo man prüfen könnte, ob der Upload funktioniert hat, gibt es nicht. Einstellmöglichkeiten oder weitere Funktionen sind entweder nicht vorhanden oder äußerst rudimentär. Ach ja, das Löschen des Accounts scheint nicht vorgesehen zu sein. So kann man die User natürlich auch bei Stange halten. :-)

Auf der Suche nach Alternativservern fand ich diese Seite: <https: github.com="" pump-io="" pump.io="" servers="" wiki=""> Die Links sind so ziemlich alle tot. Man landet auf Seiten mit abgelaufenen Zertifikaten, mit Maintenance Warnung oder auf einem chinesischen Wordpress ohne CSS. Nerdig, aber nutzlos. :-)

Und ich mache mir Gedanken um die Benutzerfreundlichkeit von Friendica...

Bei uns gibt es sicher auch Dinge, die optimiert werden können. Aber so ein direkter Vergleich hilft bei der Einordnung des Verbesserungsbedarfs. Eine gute Gelegenheit mal Danke für die super Arbeit der Developer zu sagen. <3

At our Friendica meeting in Zwenkau we talked about how to improve the network to achieve world domination. Looks like we were successful. Someone wants to work for me. :-D

Hey there,
I saw your website yesterday and I am interested in applying for a job.
Please review my resume.
Thank you

Chat with us on #Matrix

We've now a #socialhome:matrix.org room on Matrix too, in addition to our IRC and Gitter rooms. All these rooms are bridged, so you only need to join one to talk to participants in all three.

#Django developer?

Want to help build a cool social network site that federates with #Diaspora, #Friendica, #Hubzilla, and in the future #Mastodon too? Come talk and join in, help is required!

Here are some buzzwords from our technical stack: #Django, #Channels, #Bootstrap 4, #jQuery, #Masonry, #RQ, #PostgreSQL, #uWSGI, #Circus, #Mocha, #federation, #Haystack, #Whoosh. And coming up, #VueJS.

I keep seeing these <http://example.com> format urls and should probably handle them. Currently my html cleaner destroys them.

What system and spec is responsible for this format? At least #friendica is sending them.

Jason Robinson

Hi !fediverse, does anyone knows a #Friendica public server which offers cross posting with #Diaspora, #GNUSocial and #Pump? And, if possible, with the possibility of reflecting RSS feeds. I'm considering to !selfhost, how difficult is to set up Friendica? Thx

Social-Relay version 1.4.0 released

This release adds compatibility with the latest #Diaspora #protocol changes. Also now Social-Relay will verify received payloads to ensure receivers get payloads from only resolvable valid senders.

https://github.com/jaywink/social-relay/releases/tag/1.4.0

What is the relay system?

The #relay system handles distribution of public content using the #Diaspora protocol. This helps new nodes get into the network and allows subscribing to hashtags from around the network. This is an unofficial network addition not directly related to the Diaspora protocol or project itself.

If as a #podmin you want to hook up to the relay system, do as follows:

  • Enable your outbound/inbound relay configuration in your Diaspora pod settings or for #Friendica / #Hubzilla check your own settings/documentation on how to do it.
  • Ensure your node is registered at The-Federation.info. The relay system polls this list for nodes to check.
  • Profit within one hour!

Discuss and improve

Let me know if you have ideas for improving the relay system or just questions about it. Contact me here, GitHub issues or via IRC.

Changelog

Added

  • Accept new style Diaspora public payloads without xml=payload form data.
  • Add profile model. Store remote profile handle + public key for later use, since we don't want to always fetch them.
  • Start validating signatures in sent payloads. This requires fetching remote profiles. Closes #31.

A symbolic donation challenge

Since you are reading this post I guess you are directly interested in the improvement of Diaspora*. As you probably know Diaspora* couldn't improve without the hard and enthusiastic work of the developers. That is why


I challenge you to give at least a symbolic €0.01/week amount to the Diaspora* developers


€0.01/week is not much. It just €0.52/year so probably you can easily afford that. I guess you throw away much more to buy some fancy junk you don't even need at all ;-)

Isn't €0.01/week too little?

Yes, it is symbolic, but it is much more than nothing.

Also it can be a lot if most of us are willing to join (especially if some of us are willing to give a bit more).

For example, imagine if just 1% of the currently registered users of the federation have been taking this challenge. That would mean about €65/week for the developers. Just 15% of the users that were active in the past 6 month could give €75/week this way. 70% of the monthly active users could give €105/week for the developers by this "symbolic" donation.

Of course, you are free and encouraged to give more. (I also do so.)

How to participate?

Please, also encourage others to join this cause by spreading the message and voting on the poll below.

Libranet.de: Stronger Cipher Suite and no TLSv1

Hi,
I've disabled the TLSv1 protocol for Apache web server and Prosody XMPP server. I also applied a stronger cipher suite for Prosody to enforce the usage of ciphers with Perfect Forward Secrecy.

I've tested HTTPS connections with Firefox and Chromium and XMPP connections with Conversations and Gajim. Works like expected.

Please note: Older browsers like IE up to version 10 and Android up to version 4.2 cannot connect to libranet.de anymore due to a protocol/cipher mismatch.

Been in the #federated social sphere since 6 years or so and only now actually tried #Friendica 😱 Been spending way too much time looking through #Diaspora lenses..

Have to say it sure does have a lot of settings available. Had to create an account to test some #federation stuff with #Socialhome.

Sketch of the #Fediverse / #TheFederation by Mike from #Hubzilla. source.

Nice that #Socialhome was included 😊 I sure hope #Activitypub kicks off with some implementations soon. Unfortunately there are a lot of questions on how to implement it. Looks like #Mastodon will be the first major platform, hopefully that will pull others. Depending how it works for them 😉

Gedanken zum Wochenende: Teilen / Share

Schade, dass viele (bedeutende) Websites #Diaspora, #Mastodon, #Friendica u.v.m. so wenig Bedeutung beimessen, dass man auf einen Share-Button verzichtet. Beispiel ohne Wertung Man stelle sich vor, diese Projekte - nein, nicht die im Screenshot 😁 - würden mit jedem Klick einen kleinen Obolus erhalten 🤔 - man darf ja wohl noch träumen 🙄

Ich weiß nicht, ob das nur bei mir der Fall ist. Daher frage ich mal in die Runde... Wird im #Frio #Theme das Menue aufgerufen und bleibt der Fokus auf dem Header liegen, dann sehe ich nur noch den Haeder. Großes Kino ;)

Ich nutze die aktuelle 3.5.2

I like a dark theme, maybe easier on the eyes, reckon? But I find myself getting tired of it after a while. Why is that?

You can now follow/unfollow #diaspora, #friendica and #hubzilla users from #Socialhome. In preparation for user content streams, there is now a link to the user profile. Additionally, a "Home" button exists for remote users which points to the remote home profile of the user.

In other news, we also now have an #API \o/ It's not ... complete, but it does support authenticating (using a token), retrieving profile lists and doing a follow/unfollow action. Some (minimal) docs regarding the API here. For the API next will probably be creating content. Bots, anyone? ;)

hallo, ich bin #neuhier.
Ich will herausfinden, wie ich #friendica mit #diaspora, #mastodon etc. verknüpfen kann ( #federation ).
Hat jemand Tipps dazu?
