:heart_parrot: HELLO AGAIN!! :heart_parrot:

I've made a really simple tool for searching your outbox.json (Mastodon archive) file. It's all browser-based and all data stays on your computer β€” it's not uploaded to the cloud!

There's lots of room for additional features so feel free to suggest some! πŸ’š

@carbontwelve @Authoritimmy N.b., I have it filtering out everything that isn't a toot (so boosts mainly) so you won't see boosts in the output! I may add an option in the future to change this. :heart_parrot:

@andi
Does it filter out toots with media as well? I tried to find a toot with an attached image and did not see it
@carbontwelve

@Authoritimmy @carbontwelve It doesn't filter them out, it just doesn't display the media. I think? My knowledge of the ActivityPub API is pretty bad, ngl... πŸ˜…

Media is the next thing I try to get working in it. :heart_parrot:

@andi @carbontwelve
I think you might want to implement it using the zipped archive first, so you don't have to deal with a headache of finding where people extracted files. They should likely be normal (same directory as the outbox.json is a media_attachments folder) but the common issue I see is someone extracting 2 archives in the same folder causing things to get renamed.

If you extract it to a temp directory it'll be more consistent

@Authoritimmy @carbontwelve It actually consumes the entire tar.gz file since V2, no extracting necessary!
