2019-11-16 Pleroma

OK, so I tried Epicyon and it used a lot of CPU cycles doing not much. Would Pleroma fare any better?

I am ready to give it a try: Installing on Debian Based Distributions.

apt install postgresql postgresql-contrib elixir erlang erlang-dev erlang-tools erlang-parsetools erlang-ssh erlang-xmerl

Well, I was following the instructions until I got to this step:

root@sibirocobombus:/opt/pleroma# sudo -Hu pleroma mix deps.get
Could not find Hex, which is needed to build dependency :phoenix
Shall I install Hex? (if running non-interactively, use "mix local.hex --force") [Yn] 
** (UndefinedFunctionError) function :inets.stop/2 is undefined (module :inets is not available)
    :inets.stop(:httpc, :mix)
    (mix) lib/mix/utils.ex:560: Mix.Utils.read_httpc/1
    (mix) lib/mix/utils.ex:501: Mix.Utils.read_path/2
    (mix) lib/mix/local.ex:149: Mix.Local.read_path!/2
    (mix) lib/mix/local.ex:126: Mix.Local.find_matching_versions_from_signed_csv!/2
    (mix) lib/mix/tasks/local.hex.ex:56: Mix.Tasks.Local.Hex.run_install/1
    (mix) lib/mix/dep/loader.ex:168: Mix.Dep.Loader.with_scm_and_app/4
    (mix) lib/mix/dep/loader.ex:121: Mix.Dep.Loader.to_dep/3

This helped:

apt install erlang-inets


I also changed registrations_open to false in config/prod.secret.exs.



And I wrote my first Elixir code with the help of @wim_v12e:

diff --git a/lib/mix/tasks/pleroma/user.ex b/lib/mix/tasks/pleroma/user.ex
index a3f8bc945..964209c96 100644
--- a/lib/mix/tasks/pleroma/user.ex

+  def run(["list"]) do
+    start_pleroma()
+    Pleroma.User.Query.build(%{local: true})
+    |> Pleroma.RepoStreamer.chunk_stream(500)
+    |> Stream.each(fn users ->

+      |> Enum.each(fn user ->
+        shell_info("#{user.nickname} moderator: #{user.info.is_moderator}, admin: #{user.info.is_admin}, locked: #{user.info.locked}, deactivated: #{user.info.deactivated}")
+      end)
+    end)
+    |> Stream.run()
+  end
   defp set_moderator(user, value) do
     info_cng = User.Info.admin_api_update(user.info, %{is_moderator: value})

This allows me to run:

root@sibirocobombus:/opt/pleroma# sudo -Hu pleroma MIX_ENV=prod mix pleroma.user list
Compiling 1 file (.ex)
internal.fetch moderator: false, admin: false, locked: false, deactivated: false

For now I’m happy with Pleroma. Notice how load came back down again after switching from Epicyon to Pleroma and PostgreSQL. I wasn’t running a database before the Pleroma installation.
