Lemmy

Add private communities to Lemmy federated link aggregator

Lemmy is an open-source, easily self-hostable link aggregator that you can use to share, discover and discuss interesting new ideas - and discuss them with the world. Lemmy is a good decentralized alternative to widely used proprietary services like Reddit. It is designed to work in the Fediverse by virtue of its implementation of the W3C ActivityPub standard, and communicate natively with other ActivityPub services such as Mastodon, Funkwhale and Peertube. User registered on one server from one of these services should be able to effortlessly subscribe to communities on any other server, where they can have discussions with users registered elsewhere.

In this project, the team will deliver many noteworthy upgrades ranging from a more stable API, to group federation, two-factor authentication and improved moderation. In addition the project will work on the new native client Jerboa (for the Android OS). Also for the nostalgically inclined, the project is working on a new frontend inspired by traditional web forums like phpBB.
