1. Create an app in your Mastodon server account
Assuming you have an existing account on a Mastodon server, first you have to create a Mastodon app which you can use to post to your Mastodon account automatically.
In this example, we will be using https://phpc.social

In your Mastodon account, go to settings and development
and click on New Application.
Enter the details of your new app. In the scope section, you will need write:statuses permission.
Click on Submit to save your changes.
You will see client ID, client secret and
access token. Now that you have a Mastodon app created, we are ready to integrate with HN+.
2. Integrate with HN+
