fediblock-backend turns form data into JSON and opens a pull request on FediBlock/data. Also included are tools to generate a HTML list and (soon) an RSS generator.


nginx config
# […]

location /add {
    include /etc/nginx/fastcgi_params;
    fastcgi_pass    unix:/var/run/cgi-fcgiwrap.socket-1;
    fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME /usr/bin/fediblock-backend;
    fastcgi_param HOME "/var/lib/nginx"; # When I didn't set it, HOME was /root.
Generate SSH key
sudo -u nginx ssh-keygen -t ed25519 -f ~nginx/.local/share/fediblock-backend/ssh_id

Don’t forget to add the key to the data repo.

Generate an access token and save it in /var/lib/nginx/.local/share/fediblock-backend/gitea_access_token.

Generate HTML blocklist

After compiling, run src/generators/gen_html in your build dir. The screenshots will be copied into the target directory and the output will be the HTML file.

Example: Generate the HTML blocklist in ~/blocklist/
./src/generators/gen_html ~/blocklist > ~/blocklist/index.html

Existing screenshots will not be overwritten.

How to contribute

Read the Code of Conduct.

Reporting bugs or suggesting enhancements

Before reporting a bug, please perform a search to see if the problem has already been reported. If it has, add a comment to the existing issue instead of opening a new one. Same for enhancements.

You can also contact me via E-Mail, XMPP or the Fediverse if you don’t want to open an account.

Pull requests

Please use similar coding conventions as the rest of the project. The basic rule to remember is to write code in the same style as the existing/surrounding code.

Add a copyright line with the year, your name and your email address to the files you edited. Add your name and email to AUTHORS. Unless you don’t want to.

You can also send me your patches via E-Mail, ideally using git send-email.
