GNU Social-compatible microblogging server
Mastodon is an alternative implementation of GNU social, a free, open-source social network. It is a decentralized alternative to commercial platforms based on ActivityStreams, Webfinger, PubsubHubbub and Salmon. The project focuses on creating a clean REST API and a good user interface. Ruby on Rails is used for the back-end, while React.js and Redux are used for the dynamic front-end.
