Unfortunately moa is down at the moment. I'm trying to squash a bug.

That was 9 days and now Moa is processing 405 bridges.

@limedaring The delay in cross-posting can be up to 5 minutes.

I just discovered that the Instagram API is hanging for *minutes* at a time. To work around this I'm randomzing the batches of accounts so that the sames ones don't always get stuck behind an Instagram job.

Last night I added a deferral function to cause a host to be skipped for 10 minutes if a worker gets a connection error. So far it's been working really well. The ongoing connection problems with aren't causing big delays like they normally would.

Welcome to all of the python devs that are signing up!


I added 3 more workers to split up the queue and then stopped responding causing the workers to hit their time limits Β―\_(ツ)_/Β―

I'm going to add a feature to put a server in the penalty box if it responds with an error or timeout. All other accounts at that server will be skipped until a time limit is reached. Maybe 10 minutes?

Welcome to user #420


If the per-bridge time doesn't change Moa should be able to scale up to ~1000 bridges and maintain a 5-minute delivery schedule.

It takes a worker about 90 seconds right now to process ~130 bridges. That's about 1.4 seconds to check mastodon, twitter, and possibly instagram for new messages.

I added queue splitting to keep the worker run times under control.

If there was some important change made in Moa how would you feel about receiving a DM about it?

Wish list:

β€’ remove the requirement for a twitter account so instagram->mastodon is possible without one.
β€’ Add support for Instagram->Pixelfed
β€’ More stats! boosted

Thanks to @moa_party we're now tooting tweets and vice versa so expect to see a lot more here! boosted

New Feature: If a tweet contains "CW: phrase" then the phrase will be used for a real content warning in Mastodon and removed from the toot content. boosted

@moa_party is a great bridge and makes using mastodon SOOOO much more engaging when you first enter the sphere, would highly recommend anyone moving over from #twitter check it out

If you use Moa and like it please give the project a star on github. I would really appreicate it.
