BSL Checks

A web service to display details of known BirdsiteLIVE instances.


  • A Basic table of known BSL instances showing their url, owner, and saturation
  • It will check each instance every 15 minutes and report back the information - new saturation, if it's online, etc.
  • Ownership details are as follows:
    • bsl_url - your BirdsiteLIVE URL
    • owner - your name (ideally your Fediverse/Mastodon username (first part))
    • fedi_url - your fediverse home url i.e. fosstodon.org, mstdn.social, etc.
    • if the owner field is not entered, then the web service will get the contact email from the instance /nodeinfo/2.0.json output
  • written in Nim ... (a fact, not a feature... see Features of anything written in Rust or Go to realise why this is here)


This is designed to be simply run on any web server (with a reverse proxy to port 5000 and SSL)
Simply clone the repo and run
