If you're not opposed to it then I can try to implement it in the future once I get some free time. I feel like it could be helpful for people to find similar instances by seeing who is neighbors with who and how much they interact with each other.
Is that a design choice or just something you haven't added yet?
Actually, I wonder if it's the nodeinfo file causing the problem. https://dev.narwhal.city/api/unstable/nodeinfo/2.0
I looked at the sample one at http://nodeinfo.diaspora.software/ns/schema/2.0 and noticed it has an inbound/outbound part. Maybe if you put "lotide" in those sections then it might recognize instances as having neighbors.
Maybe you could try this https://fediverse.network/monitoring
I was just wondering if you've tested it on weaker devices. It's not that important though since I can just try it myself when I set it up.
Would it be possible to add some optional, simple Bootstrap to it (or just allow the instance owner to easily configure the CSS)? In my experience, it makes my websites look much better with little effort. Also, I'm worried that this website's minimal theme would drive away some people who try it and dismiss it as unfinished (first impressions matter to people who don't care enough to look at the source code).
