With the landing of the new #Mastodon v4.2.0, I decided to document the process I take to build and apply a new #Docker image for the instance I maintain at talamanca.social. Even it is distributed with an official Docker image, there are some customizations (mostly icons and images) that I want to keep and therefore I must build my own one.
As I presented LaDragonera.com days ago, I have a #Pixelfed instance that I maintain on my own. It has been running and federating for almost a month and I am proud to see how well now behaves with the current load.
In this article I go through the steps I did to bring it up into a #RaspberryPi under #Docker.
Hosting an instance like #Mastodon or #Pixelfed under #Docker makes you deal with Docker images every time a new version comes or simply when you apply any customization, like changing the logos or so on. The process is not really complicated but there are some caveats that keep an eye on.
Here I focus on my Pixelfed instance at LaDragonera.com.
