Koype 0.1.0 is Out!
Friday evening, after some testing of the development environment, I finally cut the first minor version of Koype. It's been nearly a year since I've started working on this project and this minor version reflects a shoddy attempt at a self-service IndieWeb site. There's a lot of implications and assumptions I've made and I'd love for those willing to try it out on their systems to help me break them. Some of those are:
- You'll be using an object storage system to store all of the files in the system. Koype stores information about its posts, incoming Webmentions and media all to object storage. This can be amended to work with just local file storage given demand and interest for it comes into play.
- You'd use SQLite to store information about your system. I almost went with using PostgreSQL because my familiarity with it but I decided to give SQLite another look. After noting that it's already basically everywhere and moves well, I figure it'd be something I would want to stick into Koype to test it out.
- You have some level of familiarity with Elixir. When things break, there's a console you would want to drop into to push things back into the normal state. I'm working on a way to build interfaces for this moments instead of writing those commands over and over.
I'm super excited to see how y'all go about using this initial version. I'll be bringing more bug fixes to Koype but will be turning a bit more attention to getting things around Koype like the Hub and Theme Gallery up and running. You can install Koype today by using its Docker image on Docker Hub or building from source. There's more information coming to the docs so check for an update on that soon!
