Is there a guide about installing @pixelfed instance? Apparently on website docs are in to-be-written state 🤔

Planning to run @pixelfed instance, registered for it 😊 This will complete my full set of tools: @gytis (notes), @gytis (videos) and also blog compatible with at @gytis 🤓

think of the websites you use on a daily basis. youtube, mastodon, github... imagine how much better they'd be without javascript. imagine if you were able to click a "reload" button in the mastodon timeline iframe instead of letting it automatically update with bloated JS. imagine if servers with hundreds of thousands of users rendered everything on the server side. imagine if your timeline updated with a meta refresh tag. imagine if every fave, boost, reply, et cetera initiated its own synchronous HTTP request and required a full page reload. that would be heaven on earth

imagine if the gmail webapp didn't exist and you instead had a single page with links to other pages to individually load your email. no keybinds, no lazy loading, no toggling images, no attachment warnings... just pure HTTP. it would be beautiful. so minimalist that you could run it on a flip phone. and isn't that what we all want? in today's modern day and age, where mobile phones are massively more powerful than the computers of two decades ago, we *need* to ensure that every website runs like butter on a pentium II PC with 64MB of memory, no matter how complex. what's that? you want to make a video streaming service? fuck you. we already have icecast and other internet streaming standards. provide a link to the stream and a download link for VLC. this is how things should be
