Trump's social network (Truth Social) is now open source due to pressure from the maintainers of Mastodon.

I have now mirrored the code on Codeberg and GitHub to keep track of changes, ease public examination, and ensure a copy stays public.

codeberg.org/TruthSocial/truth
github.com/justjosias/truth-so

I have also generated a basic diff between Mastodon v3.4.1 and Truth Social's latest code. codeberg.org/TruthSocial/diffs

@josias Do you have a link to their original repo; having trouble finding it.

@aral @josias That's because there isn't one. They provided a _zip_ file.

That's why I asked if anone had set this up, and, well, Josias did it and let us know here (on fedi)

@Truck @aral Exactly. I just got it from here: truthsocial.com/open-source/

The idea is to download the ZIP periodically and see if it's been updated, if so, push it to Codeberg. That way we have some way to keep track of changes. It's not perfect by any means (I wish they'd release the commit history), but it's much better than nothing.

@josias @Truck @aral that sounds like a great opportunity to have some fun with commit messages
