Newebe version 0.6.0 released

Newebe new version is out ! Newebe is a social network where each user is independant, this provides several advantages such as data ownership, speed, ad-free… In a few words, we can say that using newebe is as good as talking around a campfire.


This version, the 0.6.0,  aims to fill a hole noticed on every social network : open file publishing. None of the major ones propose to share his open files with his contacts. Fortunately, now you can do it with newebe !

Of course it comes with a whole new set of features :

  • Contact tagging (contact lists)
  • Full-text search for your microposts
  • Python packaging, made by Majerti during PyconFR Hackaton
  • Config file refactoring, made by Majerti during PyconFR Hackaton
  • Public profile page (proof of concept)
  • Fabric installation script
  • Debian package

This upgrade requires to re-setup newebe from scratch (just keep your CouchDB installation), detailed instructions here.

Quick install (Debian) :

From your local machine :

apt-get install python python-setuptools python-pip
pip install fabric fabtools
wget --no-check-certificate
fab setup -H myrootuser@myhosturlorip

Or directly on your remote box (debian testing at least) :

wget --no-check-certificate
sudo dpkg -i newebe-server_0.6.0-1_all.deb
sudo apt-get install -f

What’s next ?

Here is the roadmap for the next release :

  • front-end refactoring
  • desing improvements
  • UX improvements

Thanks to everyone who contributed to Newebe during the past 6 months !

See you soon on Newebe!
