honk honk

-- features

Take control of your honks and join the federation in the fight against the
evil empire.

Send honks. Receive honks. And not just honks.
Bonk, donk, tonk, all your favorite activities are here.

Custom emus.

Purple color scheme.

No attention mining.
No likes, no faves, no polls, no stars, no claps, no counts.

The button to submit a new honk says "it's gonna be honked".

Ein Honk is a stupid person auf deutsch.

No keybase support.

-- build

You'll need a go compiler version 1.11 or later.

Even on a fast machine, building from source can take several seconds.

-- requirements

libsqlite3 (you probably already have it)

go modules included in vendor:

-- setup

password: (the password you want)
listenaddr: (tcp or unix: localhost:31337, /var/www/honk.sock, etc.)
servername: (public DNS name:

Then run honk.


Refer also to the docs directory, in particular manual.txt.

Busy honk instances may use megabytes of memory.
