We shouldnt evaluate it, or otherwise our operating system might crash.

As far as i can tell, the only difference is that the deleted comments from MyLin are missing on lemmy.ml. That could be a problem with Mastodon federation, but anyway it shouldnt matter much.

He browses lemmy-ui in Lynx, and it doesnt render the fedilink icon correctly because of that invalid tag. Also doesnt use github.</p> </div><div class="d-flex justify-content-between justify-content-lg-start flex-wrap text-muted font-weight-bold"><a class="btn btn-link btn-animate text-muted" title="Show context" href="/post/267932/comment/56165"><svg class="icon icon-inline"><use xlink:href="#icon-link"></use><div class="sr-only"><title>link


From our side there is no problem, but Reddit admins/mods might not allow it.

Hmm i was inspecting the HTML in Firefox, but if i curl the source and look at it directly, it looks quite different, with a <title> element in the <body> as you say. @dessalines@lemmy.ml can you look into this?

There is no caching, images from other instances are loaded directly from the remote server by your browser.

Storage requirements depend entirely on the amount of images that users upload. In case of slrpnk.net, there are currently 1.6 GB of pictrs data. You can also use s3 storage, or something like sshfs to mount remote storage.

You are wrong, it uses the title attribute which is valid html, and not the title element. Maybe Lynx doesnt support that attribute on a elements, I dont know.

Btw you need to add a newline after each quote so that its rendered correctly as markdown.

No thats not currently possible with Lemmy, but Im thinking of implementing something like that in lemmyBB directly in the future (and later upstream it).

Basically these people think they have some kind of god-given right to make demands about how lemmy.ml should be moderated. Which is ridiculous on its own, plus most of them arent even registered on this instance.

Contributions are always welcome! You can look through the issues for anything that you might be interested to work on. Also be sure to join the dev chat on matrix. And do ask if there is anything unclear.

Dont worry, its hard to take these people seriously because they are acting like little children when they dont get their favorite toy. The insults arent even creative at all. Its just not something that I expected to happen when I started contributing to Lemmy, and especially didnt expect it from that group of people.

This is the first time that people insulted me using software which I created

Its a very interesting feeling. On one hand Im proud because Lemmy has come so far. Two years ago there was only one instance dev.lemmy.ml and no federation. On the other hand disappointed, because some people are unable to appreciate how much time and work I put into this project. Its especially ir…


Pictrs (image hosting software which we use for Lemmy) supports s3 as storage backend, so you could use that. However, migrating from local disk storage to s3 storage is currently not working and is being fixed. You might want to get in contact with the dev (asonix), hes very helpful.

The reason I recommended sshfs is that you can use it with any server, or even a desktop or raspberry pi. This approach is much cheaper than s3 afaik.

La unica instancia española que conozco es forum.nobigtech.es, pero esta muerta.

Your best option might be to setup sshfs to mount a folder from another server, and use that to store images.


This will usually be rather slow, so you should also setup a cache for images in nginx.


Its already supported, but the migration from local disk to s3 isnt working currently.

That sounds overly complicated. Why do you open Lemmy in your browser, when you can directly connect with your client to the API of any instance?

And if you do use the browser, theres the fedilink icon which has the link you need. If that isnt rendered properly in your browser, send me the details and i can open an issue for you.

LemmyBB Development Update 1

Here are the new features in lemmyBB which I added since the original announcement. In case you dont know what it is, LemmyBB is an alternative frontend for Lemmy, based on phpBB. Sooner or later it will be able to replace lemmy-ui for those …


How to install LemmyBB

New domains for Weblate, Gitea, Drone (updated)

I have just finished migrating the services mentioned above to new domains, and also to hosting on the lemmy.ml server, instead of my personal server. This makes sense because all of them are used almost exclusively for Lemmy development. It will also allow [@dessalines@lemmy.ml](https://lemmy.ml/u/


Instructions for lemmyBB installation, test instance available

I have finished writing instructions for deploying lemmyBB on a production server, which you can follow at the link above. Right now the project is still in a very early stage, nevertheless main funcionality is already working. This includes browsing communities, posts and comments, writing posts/co…


LemmyBB, a new frontend based on phpBB

Lemmy is structured in a way that backend (database, api, federation etc) and frontend (html, css, javascript) are completely separate. This makes it possible to create other frontends which can take the place of lemmy-ui. I have long been playing with the thought of having a Lemmy frontend that loo…


Presenting Activitypub-Rust crate

Activitypub is decentralized social networking protocol recommended by the W3C. It provides a client to server API for creating, updating and deleting content, as well as a federated server to server API for delivering notifications and content. As part of the w…


Free hosting for liberal/mainstream political instance

Lemmy.ml has long had some political conflict among the userbase, especially in communities like worldnews. This is because the instance is composed of both leftists (anarchist/communist) and liberals (those who agree with the mainstream political views in western countries). Additionally, the insta…


Lemmy 0.15.4 released

We just released a new patch which fixes an important federation problem. Due to a mistake in the code, activities were only sent out once, even if delivery failed (e.g. because the target instance is down, or a temporary connection issue). Instance admins should definitely upgrade. …
