At the end it post the results to host server bot account.

Dependencies

  • Python 3
  • Postgresql server
  • Mastodon or Pleroma running server.

Usage:

Within Python Virtual Environment:

  1. Run pip install -r requirements.txt to install needed libraries.

  2. Run python db-setup.py to setup and create new Postgresql database and needed tables in it.

  3. Run python setup.py to get your bot's access token of your Mastodon or Pleroma server existing account. It will be saved to 'secrets/secrets.txt' for further use.

  4. Run python getpeers.py to get all peers from your host and the whole world of fediverse's servers (or almost the whole world).

  5. Run python fetchservers.py to add servers to alive servers database.

  6. Run python fediverse.py to query world alive servers API. It gets data from server's nodeinfo.

  7. Run python uptime_setup.py to get your Uptime bot's access token of your Mastodon or Pleroma server existing account. It will be saved to 'secrets/uptime_secrets.txt' for further use.

  8. Use your favourite scheduling method to set python fediverse.py to run twice daily, python fetchservers.py one time daily, python getworld.py to run monthly and python uptime.py (choose your desired frequency) if you want to publish best fediverse's servers uptime.
