Browser support

FediLove supports the latest versions of the following browsers:

  • Chrome
  • Edge
  • Firefox
  • Safari

Compatible versions of each (Opera, Brave, Samsung, etc.) should be fine.


FediLove requires Node.js v8+ and Yarn.

To build FediLove for production, first install dependencies:

yarn --production --pure-lockfile

Then build:

yarn build

Then run:

PORT=4002 node server.js


To build a Docker image for production:

docker build .
docker run -d -p 4002:4002 [your-image]

Now FediLove is running at localhost:4002.


Alternatively, use docker-compose to build and serve the image for production:

docker-compose up --build -d

The image will build and start, then detach from the terminal running at localhost:4002.


To keep your version of FediLove up to date, you can use git to check out the latest tag:

git checkout $(git tag -l | sort -Vr | head -n 1)


FediLove is a static site. When you run yarn build, static files will be written to __sapper__/export.

In theory you could host these static files yourself (e.g. using nginx or Apache), but it's not recommended, because:

  • You'd have to set the CSP headers yourself, which are an important security feature.
  • Some routes are dynamic and need to be routed to the correct static file.

Developing and testing

See CONTRIBUTING.md for how to run FediLove in dev mode and run tests.
