Dear Community,

We're migrating our forums to a new place, for reasons outlined here:

Let me introduce the brand new Network page!

It's a magical place where you can:

- Browse data about the network
- Submit your instance for inclusion in the statistics

Collected data is made available at More dashboards will come in the future, but you can already have an idea of the number of instances, active users, and the growth!

If you own an instance, simply visit to have it included :)

Quick reminder that if you manage a pod and are ok with basic stats to be collected, you can submit your pod domain on

It's helpful to have an idea of the size of the network, the number of active users, the deployment of new versions, etc.

By doing so, you'll contribute to those dashboards:

You can opt-out at any time, from your pod settings (older stats will be deleted as well if you do).


Someone recently started to work on a native (as in: not based on Subsonic) android app for . They are looking for feedback and ideas, so feel free to reach out on the corresponding discussion!

At this point, we still need to list requirements and design the feature at a higher level before starting implementation work.

This happens at

The good news is that Podcasts support is on our roadmap ( and likely to be scheduled for the 0.21 release, which is due by the end of 2019 (or early 2020).

In terms of implementation skills and work, we'll need UX and UI design, API/Python dev (for the back-end) and Javascript dev for the web UI. And people willing to review / test all the corresponding contributions.

But right now, what we need is consensus on what "Podcast support" actually means before we move on to the implementation ;)

So, if you're willing to help, what you can do is going to and share your use cases, ideas and feedback on what have already been discussed there.

As soon as we have basic consensus on the feature, we can start the implementation work. I'd love to see a hackathon focused on this topic and I really think it could help to achieve this!

@aab @agaitaarino @irola @siroco @CorioPsicologia @liberaturadio @eliotberriot @radioalmaina @birrasybits @funkwhale @PostApocalipsisNau ... and about bringing podcast support to Funkwhale, yes please! I have given support to this feature every time the project asked. I was even thinking about the possibility of crowdfunding if that would help.

~9 months ago, someone started a discussion to identify and fix potential pain points with the navigation and sidebar.

The discussion hasn't been really active lately, but @mjourdan submitted a new proposal this week and we'd like your input on this.

Would you mind having a look at

As part of improving the creator/artist experience on , we want to allow them to claim their profiles, and manage their info themselves. We also want to support additional fields in Artist profiles, such as a bio, or pictures.

Do you mind having a look at this poll and cast a vote to ensure we didn't forget any important field?

The full discussion is available at if you need some context :)

So, I've pushed a lot of updates regarding this install script, and it will now:

- allow you to disable installation of Nginx/Postgresql/Redis (if you manage those services yourself)
- stop failing when no locale is configured on the server
- have a better UX overall聽(wording, confirm by pressing Enter instead of typing yes, etc.)

I've also tested it with success on a fresh Ubuntu 18.04 server (in addition to Debian 9 and 10 ;)

Same instructions to try it:

Hey, if you have a debian or ubuntu server and are willing to help the project and also have a Funkwhale instance, would you mind having a look at ?

It's a single shell script that should give you a fully functional instance within a few minutes.

I've personally tested it on Debian 9 and 10, but the more tests and feedback we get, the more robust and useful it will be!
