We are preparing to roll out the Client-Server #Anahita website and continue developing towards stable releases of Anahita 4.6, with no HTML outputs, and the #ReactJS app. I'll post an announcement next week.

Creating the first Super Admin account from CLI

We made a small but significant change in the Anahita installation workflow. We added a site:signup command to the CLI tool so you can create the first account from the command line. 

Signing up from the user interface signup form will set the user type to registered by default. 

We first implemented this feature for our upcoming 4.6.0 release in the nohtml branch, but we decided to give you th...

Preventing a php shell upload attack in your custom apps

A common form of attacks in applications that allow file upload is when you enable unrestricted file upload without checking the file type against a restricted list of mime-types in your back-end code. 

In the Anahita default installation, the only file uploads happen when a user uploads an avatar, cover image, or photo. In all cases, only certain mime types are allowed. If you are developing c...

We just tagged #Anahita 4.5.1 #Birth release that fixes a bug in email notifications such as Create Account and Password Reset. It also improves the Medium Privacy setting Rest API to return an updated JSON response. Update your installations!

Happy New Year 🥳 🎉, Anahita tribes! We are keeping our expectations low for 2021, but we hope to make the best of every situation. Stay Safe and healthy, everyone. We also wrote a lot of code in 2020 so expect new releases in Q1.

Rewriting Signup, Register, Password Reset, and Invites workflows

To improve the user experience, for the Anahita 4.5 release, we will rewrite the workflows in Signup, Register, Password Reset, and Invites. The following changes will happen:

1. SIGNUP will take the user directly to their profile. Right now, the user has to click on a token link that Anahita emails to them. We implemented the token link to prevent bots from signup for an account, but now google...

Anahita 4.4.4 Birth Release is out

We have just tagged the 4.4.4 Birth release. This version comes with improved REST API for Site Settings and Actor Settings. We have also fixed several bugs.

We have been busy working on the Anahita React app and, through this process, improving the REST APIs in Anahita. 

How to upgrade

If your installation is from the master branch:

$ git pull

$ php anahita db:migrate:up

else, if your installation ...

We just tagged the #Anahita 4.5.2 Birth release which comes with a few improvements and bug fixes. Use Composer Update to update your installations or git pull if you are using the master branch.
You can see the next release of Anahita in the nohtml branch which only renders JSON by default and OG (OpenGraph) if you use .og extension in the node URLs. The codebase is nearly 60% smaller: https://github.com/anahitasocial/anahita/tree/issues/nohtml #Anahita #nohtml #Restful

Do not use Anahita for spreading misinformation

Years ago, when I used to be in the Joomla team as a development group member, I came across a Joomla-powered website launched by the Iranian government to dox people who participated in the green movement protests against the theocratic regime. I remember how sick I felt in the stomach and how appalled I was. Here I was volunteering my programming skills and code for a good cause only to see s...

We are about to branch out the 4.6.0, and the first objective is to support #MarkDown instead of HTML, also remove all the #HTML views. That means the next release of #Anahita will provide a #REST #API only. We will be releasing the #AnahitaReact 1.0 to go with it.

Anahita 4.5.0 Birth Release is out

We tagged the 4.5.0 release yesterday. What's significant about this release is the improved JSON REST APIs for essential operations such as signup, authentication, password recovery, Actor profile settings, and Site Settings.

As you know, Anahita has been moving towards a Client-Server architecture. We are developing a client-side React application for Anahita. We are already using stable varia...

We have been doing a lot of development in the master branch. The new release makes it a lot easier to use #Anahita as the cloud API for your mobile, desktop, and browser apps.
