A simple script to start playing with mastodon importing toots. It's just a startpoint because it's not fully usable yet.
It uses a
sample.json file as input (you can get this file in your mastodon instance server, under preferences + export information).
As said, it's not fully usable yet, it's a WIP (for now it's not looping over all the json data, it just creates a hello world toot in the account with id=1), but it could be a good startpoint if you need a tool like this.
- Get your
sample.jsonfrom your mastodon instance server.
- Import and Export
- Request your data
- Extract the zip and get the
- Modify the code to match the path of your
- Create a
.envfile with your postgresql credentials from the
.env.samplefile in the repo.
- Run and/or compile this script:
go build. Take in account where you will run the binary. I mean I've developed it under macos darwin but I wanted to run it on my mastodon instance machine, so I compiled it with some flags in order to get it running:
GOOS=linux GOARCH=amd64 go build.
- Move the binary and the
outbox.jsonto the server (ensure path matches) and profit.
- UnmarshalJSON stuff
- Something similar but in JS

Feel free to modify the script in order to fill your needs. Of course, mentions and patches (PRs, etc...) are more than welcome!
