I was looking for how to install Lemmy and found these videos, hope these can help if you need to install you instance.
I'm not that technical person, i need to hear from you.
I'm planning to hire someone to modify a Lemmy fork for me as i need to add new features, also i have to declare the source code to align with AGPL-3.
The question is, if i put my code on self-hosetd Gitea can i get the important updates from the master brunch of lemmy on github? especially the security updates.
Please tell me if this is possible!
So the question is clear from the title.
i was searching the web and found a website called Hexbear https://www.hexbear.net/.
after looking at it for a minute found that this website is a modified fork of lemmy, but checking further found that hexbear shows the posts in cardview which looks better than the standard view of lemmy on mobile.
Any plans to allow cardview for lemmy on mobile?
here is how it looks on mobile
I see from my prospective that lemmy listing on mobile need more improvements, its not that bad, but not prefect at the same time, still you can read with no issues, but why not if something perfect can run with modern user experience?
i don't use reddit but few days ago i visited it on mobile for curiosity and found that reddit has a view mode named "Card View", and i can`t deny i loved it as a design.
So, do you think lemmy should do the same soon?, giving more ability to users to switch between view modes?
At least for me its very difficult to make the line between preventing hate speech and allowing the freedom.
I'm thinking to launch a lemmy instance, but the targeted audience is very sensitive to religion topics, and i'm sure if i allow it, this could lead to hate speech at some point and may fuel violence.
Also, from my prospective, i just want my audience find new good things far from porn, porn sites are a lot, and i don`t want to mix it with other topics that can very constructive.
So please tell me your opinion, if banning these 2 topics can effect the freedom of speech.
Sorry, i don`t know if this is the correct community to share my thoughts, but I'm wondering if lemmy team does trending posts instead of communities.
As most of us know, trending widgets are to attract the attention to specific topics, and titles play a big role in this.
i believe if lemmy team switches the trending communities in the sidebar to show trending topics the widget will paly bigger role to extend the reading time.
Share your thoughts if you agree or not.
Its not a secret that no ads on lemmy, which makes the process more difficult paying for hosting to keep your instance only, so tell me!
How do you fund your lemmy instance?
do you sell products through lemmy?
Donations? how you convince people to donate to your instance?
Do you sell subscriptions? how?
So me and my team planning to run our lemmy instance, but i was thinking what cam make lemmy complete at the same time respects the privacy of the users.
I need to know the below:
1- Best alternative to Cloudflare.
2- Best alternative to Google analytics.
3- "Recommend use to support lemmy to work properly"
I hear a lot about cloudflare on lemmy, users sounds unhappy with it for many reasons, so its very important to me to how we can replace cloudflare when we launch our instance.
I have a good experience with digitalocean when it comes to technical stuff, or computing stability, most of my apps hosted there are business related apps, has nothing to do with public opinion.
but recently i decided to launch a lemmy instance that allows freedom of speech with very less restrictions, and i'm still thinking to put the service on digitalocean, but i don`t know if digitalocean is good when it comes to freedom of speech, because i don`t want to wake up at the morning and find that they blocked my account and deleted all my data because they didn`t like what my users are talking about.
Note: Less restrictions means (no pornography, child pornography, terrorist group and violence support, copyrighted materials trade).
I have postponed my lemmy project till the RTL is implemented, i have changed my language for test to an RTL one here in lemmy to see how it looks, but i can say does not look good.
i appreciate if you can tell if there is any plans to allow RTL in lemmy soon.
I was checking my profile settings, looking for arabic language but found that its not implemented yet.
if i install lemmy in future, do i need to install arabic to my instance separately or it will come our of the box?
I'm not into these cloud and docker stuff.
i have limited knowledge of installing software on VPS.
i have installed discourse on digitalocean successfully, it was simple even with docker presence.
Is there any type of resources that explains the installation process step by step for beginner people like me?
