The multi-purpose Hubzilla network is home to nomads and power users. It includes a significant number of features and granular settings. Take your time to explore all of them. If you have questions, don't hesitate to post to developer forums or ask the community. Hubzilla is well connected to the rest of Fediverse and will let you follow users from most other federated networks.

features

  • forums
  • file sharing
  • nomadic indentity
  • direct messages deletion
  • expiring posts and mail
  • events
  • encrypting comments with passphrase

information

  • By default Hubzilla account federates only within Hubzilla network. You need to turn on ActivityPub and diaspora plugins in profile settings in order to connect with your friends from other networks
  • When you recall a Hubzilla direct message in "mail", your message is removed from conversation on both sides (is deleted from the database of the server you're using and from your correspondent's server). This works only between Hubzilla contacts. If you exchange direct messages with friends from diaspora, Friendica, etc, recalling a message will not delete if from their conversations and servers - because those networks do not allow direct message deletion
  • Sharing files is possible only between Hubzilla users, friends from other networks will not have access to shared files

  3. Spread the word. Invite your friends. Explain why it's important.
  4. Contribute with code. Send a pull request. Resolve an issue. Take a bounty.
  5. Help translating. Design promo materials. Print and distribute stickers.
