StatusNet for JoCo Cruise Crazy 2

StatusNet is an Open Source project to create a Twitter like service. There is a fan initiative to investigate it's suitability for onboard communication.

Proof of Concept

There is a proof of concept server located at https://grimstatusnet.dyndns.org/statusnet/. Access is by web, iPhone app, Android app, or desktop app. Mobile clients should use grimstatusnet.dyndns.org/statusnet as the server.

Issues

A list of known issues with the current proof of concept server.

  • Error reported during account creation
    • Likely due to incorrect configuration of sendmail
    • Should just disable email validation
  • As of July 2010, native Twitter app doesn't work with StatusNet. Authentication in the app is hardcoded to official Twitter site.

Improvements

  • Disable attachments
  • Disable location services
  • Disable OpenID
  • Install PHP bytecode accelerator
    • APC appears to be the defacto standard
  • Disable URL shorteners
    • Look into disabling URLs

Hardware

The current proof of concept server is running under a free Amazon EC2 micro instance. Available RAM is 79MB of 613MB. During the current light testing, CPU usage has not exceeded 15%. Likely need 1 GB and a low end processor for real hardware. A small, cheap netbook is almost certainly likely to handle the load.

Software

OS: Ubuntu 11.04 Beta 1 64 bit StatusNet: 0.9.7 Apache: 2.2.17 PHP: 5.3.5-1ubuntu7.1 phpMyAdmin: 3.3.10deb1 ddclient PHP
