If you're running your on a the update will be available any minute.

If you're self-hosting on a home line any byte less to be transmitted will help 🙃 .

Just uploaded a new version of s integration into yunohost: ynh6.

  • improved handling of the couchdb database(s)
    • restore renames an existing database if it has been left over from a previous installation
    • install re-uses an existing database if it has been left over from a previous installation
  • --purge is respected
    • removing without purging leaves the database and the data directory on the disc
    • purging deletes them
  • install and restore take care of an existing flohmarkt database user

The new version will be available for testing in the app catalogue within a few hours. Feedback is very welcome and much appreciated! 🙃

Finally did it 🙃 - migrated my onto my and found a bunch of problems with the integration.

For release ynh6 I plan to fix these problems without adding any new features.

If you're already trying flohmarkt_ynh at this early stage of development please follow the issues to be aware of known problems.


Just merged ynh5 of the app. Soon it will be available on the yunohost catalog.

  • multiple installs of flohmarkt on the same yunohost should work
  • backup, restore and remove now only affect the CouchDB database and user of the actual instance of flohmarkt (thanks to Daniele Bailo for couchdb-dump)
  • symlinks are generated to distinguish between the flohmarkt, flohmarkt__2, flohmarkt__x directories when having multiple instances installed.

If you like e.g. the web-interface look at these commits.

Thanks !


Haha, that's nice: because I had contact with the seller related to the item before sent me a DM when the seller changed the price of the item.

Thanks ♥ !

That is good news. Now I can include the option to install multiple on the same into the next packaging! Still on it tinkering with new filenames and directory layout to make it easier to find which files belong to which domain/path when having multiple flohmarkts installed. Hopefully migration of the old layout will work!

I'm working on the next version of the integration of into .

Help is - you guessed it already - very welcome 🙃 !


made it into the app catalog and can be installed on any yunohost since yesterday.

Part of the flohmarkt team celebrated yesterday on the flohmarkt IRC channel.

Over a glass of our favourite drink and me found a way to extend the logging to make it possible to integrate flohmarkt into fail2ban.

During the night flohmarkt_ynh passed the integration test by the CI on github.

There's still a lot of work ahead to make the integration perfect, but splitting up into small steps makes progress easy.

I wrote a draft about the development workflow that is open for discussion and hopefully already makes it possible for people interested to help testing, maintaining and extending the integration to get started.

Celebrate with us! After a long and steep learning curve about yunohost packaging it is possible to test flohmarkt on yunohost.

Many thanks to all the developers of yunohost and yunohost-app integrations who answered my questions on matrix.

Ha! First time I pushed the Assign button on my flohmarkt for the first article finally sold (out). All people interested in the pcb and parts received a message that I sold them all.

I hope that the will grow until there are enough people to exchange goods and services locally and generally quickly find the things I'm looking for or find someone interested in the stuff I do not want anymore, but that might be of value for someone else.

Maybe the upcoming integration will enable some more people to run an instance of their own.

Thank you for putting so much effort into reviewing ! It would be of great help if you could open issues for the problems you found (federation) with detailed descriptions and if possible server logs and screenshots.

Flohmarkt still has a quite small developer team (great the pythonic main dev and magic the frontend sorcerer) and step by little the issues are being taken care of and the features are improved and extended.

That said: Please open issues for feature requests as well. At the moment everything is just a question of resources that are available to invest into issues, but we do not want good ideas being lost.

I do understand your critic about the manual federation with other flohmarkt instances. I'm not a ActivityPub magician, but as far as I'd understand there'd need to be a way for instances to find each other. Sure, that'd not be to difficult, but it is code that need to be written.

Again, thanks for your time and effort to learn and write about flohmarkt and I hope we'll see your ideas and findings in issues on codeberg 🙃 !

If you do not want your article on the media list of the flohmarkt wiki, please let me know.


Hey ys! Really, I sold the first thing on flohmarkt. It's new owner communicated with me through fediverse DMs.

My flohmarkt is running on a at the moment and my exposes the https URL as a reverse-proxy using the app redirect.

This way my yunohost takes care of providing and renewing the Let's encrypt certificate. flohmarkt as an application connected to the needs a trusted cert so the other fediverse instances can talk to it.

I'd like to get back my RockPro64 to have it ready for other purposes and started integration of flohmarkt into yunohost to move my flohmarkt onto the yunohost.

If you'd like to help testing your issues on codeberg are very welcome.

Let's make flohmarkt bigger so there'll be a lot more people to offering and looking for whatever information, help, goods someone might care to exchange with their fellow ys! 🙃

Need to upgrade. I thought I could wait for the first integration of , but there are still too many rough edges. Anybody wants to help with it (testing is very welcome also)?

Some flohmarktis are able to read and/or and some of those even can adjust existing code or even create new meaningful functions.

Some of them hang out on * channel on * where they exchange ideas, discuss code and just have a nice chat.

Most of them try already selling stuff on one of the running deployments.

All of them follow with great pleasure the fast development of * towards its first release.

- a lot of improvement!

It is really nice to see that during the last few days

  • irc channel started on Libera.Chat
  • the flohmarkt repository has been re-organized to let volunteers write to the wiki
  • the activity on open issues increased immensely

This would be a dream come true to have an open and decentralized small ads market place.
