Fediwall is a media wall application made for Mastodon. Follow hashtags or accounts and show the most recent posts in a self-updating, screen filling and visually pleasing masonry grid layout. Put it on a large screen and showcase community feedback or social media reactions while hosting your next big event, or use it to look at cat pictures all day. Your choice.


  • Follow hashtags or accounts and display all public posts (including boosts) matching your interest.
  • Visually pleasing and screen filling masonry grid layout that scales well with all types of screens, from tablet to large screens or LED walls at venues.
  • Dark mode for less eye stain and lower energy consumption.
  • Find new posts quickly and watch them appear with a smooth animation. The update logic gracefully handles Mastodon server rate limits.
  • Moderation tools allow you to pin important posts, hide inappropriate posts or block entire accounts if necessary.
  • Configure everything to your liking without the need to host your own instance. Settings are stored in the URL, so you can bookmark or share your personalized wall with others.
  • Self-host your own if you like. Fediwall is compiled to a static website with no server side logic. Just put it on a webserver and you are done.

Try it out

There is a public demo site you can start playing with.

How to build and host your own

Checkout this repository, run npm install once, then npm run build and copy the content of the ./dist/ folder to a web server of your choice. If you want to run Fediwall under a certain path instead of the web server root, specify the --base build option and all paths will be rewritten accordingly (e.g. npm run build -- --base=/wall/ to serve it as https://example.com/wall/).


If you deploy Fediwall yourself, you can either change default settings in ./src/defaults.ts, or upload a custom wall-config.json file to the Fediwall folder on your webserver. Fediwall will check for that file during initialization and use it as its default configuration.

All config values can also be defined or changed via URL query parameters. The easiest way to generate a custom URL is to use the built-in config editor. Go to the Fediwall instance you want to use, scroll down, click [configure] and change everything to your liking, then hit Apply. Bookmark or share the new URL.


Checkout this repository, run npm install once, then npm run dev and start coding.
