Urge to set up own Mastodon instance rising...

Ian McKellar @ian

@buzz it was harder than it should be but not actually that bad. I wish there was a simpler option for self-hosted single user or small user installs.

@ian @buzz this may be of interest (ive not personally tried it): masto.host/

@ian @buzz Good opportunity for a fun name, too. Minidon? Mammoth? Microdon? Nanodon? Infinidon?

@ian @buzz yeah was wondering about this as well, the codebase looks quite monolithic! A slimmed down, minimal one that'd run in a free cloud instance would be great. E.g. for just identity, reading and posting, not scaling to tons of users.

@case @ian Yes, I was thinking the same thing! In the meantime, I’m probably gonna set something up on masto.host with the andersen.social domain I just registered.
