    Pleroma is built on a lot less technology than Mastodon. To run a Mastodon instance, you need Rails, PostgreSQL, Redis, Sidekiq, NodeJS and - if you want search - ElasticSearch. For Pleroma, you only need Elixir and PostgreSQL, while still getting all the features. This simplifies installation and makes maintenance somewhat easier.

    Congrats on keeping things somewhat minimal!

      WIth gopher support!

      Thought I’d call attention to that given the past interest about gopher on this site.

        Why doesn’t the first stable release not have a version number 1.0?

          It’s probably a joke. 9 is associated with Cirno and the subtext of “strongest” confirms this.

          Congrats! I’ve been following pleroma for a while. It is very exciting :-) and it is also the first elixir-based project that made that language interesting for me, I love how minimalist it is in requirements compared to other stuff.
