@pixelfed If you support stories I'll probably get like 50 people to switch, that's the main feature that Instagram has over Pixelfed.

Yeah, but there have to priotise mobile app though since that where people will usually browse the website.

@ahmd_amsyr @pixelfed That's true, but a mobile app is pretty easy in comparison to stories.

Yeah and stories must have high storage and bandwidth to operate. So good luck to @dansup

@ahmd_amsyr @DashEquals @pixelfed You can store 1TB of media using wasabi ($5/mth) or DO Spaces ($20+/mth). To give you an idea of how much media that is, pixelfed.social hosts over 50k media (images/video) using only 13.5gb of storage.

An 8mb photo gets optimized to around 260kb on average.

In the future you will be able to shard media across various CDNs/accounts for redundancy/cost efficiency with any S3 compatible API object storage provider.

@DashEquals @ahmd_amsyr @pixelfed Not officially, but it has worked since the beginning. The only issue is the optimization pipeline. It expects local files. I look forward to shipping proper S3 support in a future release!

@dansup @ahmd_amsyr @pixelfed Ah, great! I don't have enough local storage so once S3 is fully compatible I'll be able to set up my instance!


@DashEquals @dansup @ahmd_amsyr @pixelfed same here, looking to do a S3 and Cloudfront deployment on AWS to give speed to serving images
