GoToSocial

Improvements to ActivityPub server written in Go

GoToSocial is an ActivityPub-enabled social network server. It complements existing ActivityPub implementations (Mastodon, Akkoma, etc) by providing a lightweight, customizable and privacy focused entry to decentralized social media hosting. GoToSocial places a high value on ease of deployment and maintenance; this means low power requirements, simple set up, and clear documentation. It empowers self-hosting newcomers and experts alike, to easily and reliably deploy decentralized communities at minimal cost. With something as low-power as a small single-board home server, you can deploy a personal instance to follow your favourite Fediverse users, post content and interact with the decentralized community at large, all while retaining ownership of your personal data. For more experienced and privacy conscious users we offer features like allow-list federation mode, to ensure your data is only circulated among those you explicitly permit. In this project, the team will add two factor authentication, improve interoperability, scalability and add some new features like better archiving capabilities.
