Pixelfed

Pixelfed want to be an alternative of Instagram. It will be federated with ActivityPub like Mastodon, Pleroma or many other plateform. Untill now you didn’t have any similar app as Instagram.

 

The only tools that could be similare was quit.im based on Gnusocial

It was a good start but Gnusocial seems to be slow developped and they didn’t have implemented ActivityPub yet.

 

Pixelfed was on early developpement today (end of July 2018) but we can start using it with few instances already available.

What is interesting is that the creator Daniel wanted to polish the look and feel. Contrary to other libre project that code the core first and then try to make a good design at the end, here you have a polished application. Many option are not open yet. You still can publish pictures, you have filters, you can comment and follow and been followed.

The federation is not open yet. That means that you cannot follow people from other instance.

If you are curious and want to create an account, you can find instance at the federation
