Congratulations for releasing! You’ve done a ton of work. Can I ask a technical question? How does soapbox-fe connects with the server (pleroma)? Does it use a custom API or does it connect to the Person INBOX/OUTBOX? If the latter, how does the user authenticate to their BOX?

Thank you! Pleroma implements the Mastodon API for client-server interactions. There’s also a Pleroma API when extends upon it. This part from the readme is probably relevant.

Looks really nice. Are you also the author of the soapbox ui (used with mastdon) or is that the Gab UI that you are now porting to pleroma?
