Features#

Takahē is currently in development, so it does not yet have all the features of a full ActivityPub server.

Currently, it supports:

  • Web UI only (but can be installed as a PWA)

  • Creating, editing and deleting posts, with CWs/summaries and visibility

  • Receiving and showing images on posts (cannot be added to posts yet)

  • Handling replies and reply threading

  • Creating and receiving boosts and likes

  • Delivering mentions, and notifications for incoming mentions

  • Following and unfollowing, and you-were-followed notifications

  • Post visibilities, including a local-only option

  • A home timeline, a local timeline, and a federated timeline

  • Profile pages with bios, icons, and header images

  • Searching for users by exact handle

  • Multiple domain support

  • Multiple identity (per user account support)

  • Server defederation (blocking)

  • Signup flow

  • Password reset flow

  • Hashtag trending system with moderation

Features planned for releases up to 1.0:

  • Adding images to posts, with descriptions

  • A mode where followers must be approved

  • Emoji fetching and display

  • Emoji creation at server level

  • Searching for hashtags

  • Server announcements system

  • Moderation flagging system and queue

  • IP and email domain banning

  • Mastodon-compatible client API for use with apps

  • RSS feeds for users’ public posts
