What is Kibou?
Kibou is a lightweight federated social networking server based on open protocols. It is
written in Rust, utilizes Rocket as it’s web framework and Diesel as it’s database driver.
The project’s objective is to provide a highly customizable multi-protocol social networking server. Currently supported is the commonly used ActivityPub protocol.
Furthermore Kibou implements Mastodon’s REST API. This means that all applications for Mastodon should also work with Kibou.
minimal mode can also be enabled in it’s settings which reduces network traffic and only shows Raito-FE’s core components.
Notice: Kibou is not considered stable yet. This project’s development is still
work-in-progress. Using the development branch is not recommended for production usage.
Federation with other software
Federation is known to work with Pleroma, Misskey and Mastodon which are also the main projects being tested against. But federation with other software should work as well.
