that link shows:

notabug is a p2p fork of reddit built in javascript. javascript is required to run it

yeah I'm not gonna enable js, sorry. Is it as active as this site? why not just use postmill so you can properly protect user privacy?

Totally understandable. Plan to provide an install able app eventually as well but it will likely just be an electron wrapper around the existing code.

More active in terms of links, probably less active in terms of comments right now but a bit hard to say given that it is anon my default.

My aim is to build a p2p/federated alternative to centralized sites like reddit and raddle that will eventually be usable to connect those distinct alternatives together retaining their uniqueness.

I'm building it based on reddit's open source UI which I have converted to react components (as seen on also requires js)

I plan to only support writes in JS because all authentication is crypto based and happens clientside don't want to accept passwords serverside at all.

Also I worry that if I provide more traditional post endpoints in such an anon environment it will make things way too easy for spammers at this stage.

And finally, voting is a proof of work problem, so to be able to vote on at least; it is a requirement to run a pow solver locally. Voting isn't required to participate now; but if spam gets heavy it will become effectively necessary to raise above noise.
