Its capabilities are impressive - even to us, the maintainers. Beta 12 comes with a few new components. Can't name them all but want to draw your attention to eca_form and eca_cache, one is brand new and the other one a huge improvement compared to beta 11. ECA Form lets you build, alter, validate and submit forms in almost any possible way. Without any custom code, just from within the admin UI of your #Drupal site.

Gmail will block all third party mail clients starting from June:

That is, unless they pay $4500 minimum for an audit :D

Stop using gmail and enabling their monopolistic practices, if you already haven't.

ECA stands for "Events - Conditions - Actions". It lets you automate #Drupal 9 and Drupal 10 sites right from the admin interface without custom code.

#DrupalCamp presentation providing an overview of the #Fediverse and how #ActivityPub works to make different social apps interoperable. Then delving into the #Drupal support for Fediverse.

die Millionen, die für #Ella verbrannt wurden, da hätte man neue Stellen am #Belwue schaffen können.

#Moodle ist eine bundesweit etablierte Lernplattform, da hätte man mit Ella das Rad nicht neu erfinden müssen. Aber ne. Lieber Steuergeld versenken in Vaporware. Es ist auf so vielen Ebenen ein Rückschritt für die Schulen. Einfach nur zum heulen. 😞

Una conferència sobre "transparentar l'administració" i que el ponent emet per una plataforma privativa que tenim bloquejada. Un dia més trampejant amb les ironies paròdiques de la vida digital. 🧘‍♀️

You can create your own Mastodon server even without technical knowledge 🐘

There are companies that provide Managed Hosting, where you pay a monthly fee and they do all the technical stuff including hosting, installation and updates.

You own and run the server, they do the tech stuff behind the scenes.

The best managed hosting companies for Mastodon are probably and

It's not just Mastodon either, there are lots of Fediverse platforms and other online services available through managed hosting. Try visiting for more options (or follow them at @homegrown).

For those hosting #Drupal sites on Pantheon and appreciate their DevOps tools, but not their steep pricing tiers, Amezmo has proven to be a good alternative.

If you use #Drupal and want to set a character limit on a field, I (w/ help from others) just released a new version of the Maxlength module.


FYI, maybe also of interest: Found Redecentralize via Mail-in-a-Box.

"Mail-in-a-Box lets you become your own mail service provider in a few easy steps. It’s sort of like making your own gmail, but one you control from top to bottom."

"Technically, Mail-in-a-Box turns a fresh cloud computer into a working mail server. But you don’t need to be a technology expert to set it up."

@ru Was thinking along similar lines as @RL_Dane. It seems difficult to find (new) ActivityPub-speaking projects that also provide long-form posts.

However, it might also be helpful to look out for pre-existing software projects that have added or are going to add #ActivityPub support.

Two projects that come to mind (because I'm using them) are #Nextcloud and #Drupal and both are working on ActivityPub or #IndieWeb support.

You would like to have your own Mastodon instance but don't have the means?

There are (paid) services that will create and run an instance for you, you can focus on moderation (or just have an instance for yourself).

Best known is but there are more! @mastohost @hostsharing @support
