Who wants to work with me and @dajbelshaw, developing the #ActivityPub based #federated back-end for #MoodleNet?

We're looking for a #developer familiar with #Elixir (or transferable skills like #Erlang and #RubyOnRails).

The whole project will be #FOSS and you can work from home, what's not to love ;-) Please RT!

Whether you're a developer or user of a application, you should be aware of - appimage.org/

JSON-goLD: a json-ld lib for Go github.com/piprate/json-gold

Apparently the devs have also built a 2015 version of Linked Data Signatures, but it's not released yet, but seems on the roadmap github.com/piprate/json-gold/i

Happy #FollowFriday #ff! This is from memory (on a train right now). People related to AP in some way:

@cwebber One of the AP authors
@rhiaro Another AP author
@kaniini Pleroma Eng
@Gargron Mastodon Eng
@nightpool Mastodon Eng
@dansup PixelFed Eng
@tuxether Anacus Eng
@matt Write.as Eng
@bhaugen ValueFlows (extension)

just a quick #litepub update:

we intend to have a meeting Saturday, around 1900 GMT, to discuss timeline and functionality for a minimum viable product (MVP).

litepub is intended to be a profile of activitypub for S2S usage, which is minimalist and reflects real-world best practices.

we ultimately intend to present this work to IETF for publication as an RFC.

oh I just realised! I never posted my announcement for Kroeg here:

Kroeg (https://puckipedia.com/kroeg)'s my project to build a fast generic ActivityPub server; currently it's obviously aimed at being microblog-based, but building image sharing on top is easy. my site is currently run right on top!

Does your #golang #activitypub application use go-fed? Want free and cheap marketing? Want to put an end to the universal increase of entropy*?

Let me know some details in the linked github issue, so I can update the go-fed README with it!

github.com/go-fed/activity/iss

*Offer valid where the second law of thermodynamics does not apply.

go-fed #activitypub Official Implementation report has been submitted: github.com/w3c/activitypub/iss

It's valid for v0.2.0 onwards. Which was released today. Expect the site to pick up that version and generate the documentation sometime within the next 23 hours or so.

It's been a 6 month journey to this point. A LONG side-project journey for me. When I began, AP wasn't even finalized yet, and I was full of self-doubt.

Thanks everyone who's been supportive. Doubly thankful for those using the library!

had a incident. May I remind everyone that Reddit used to be open source, but later became closed source in 2017. In less than a year, they face a security incident. This is why we need licensed based alternatives like Anancus and Prismo.

I've started putting together a list of #fediverse apps, focused on implementations of #ActivityPub, documenting their status and what tech stack they're (being) built with: ethercalc.org/fediverse-stacks

This is a publicly editable doc, so would appreciate corrections/additions, and feedback especially from fediverse devs, but also from instance admins and users:

- What app/implementation/stack did you try?
- Pros/cons you encountered
- What stack & libraries would you choose if starting today?

There's an amazing number of #ActivityPub #alternatives now available or under development:

Twitter -> @Mastodon and #Pleroma

Instagram -> @pixelfed and @anfora

YouTube -> #PeerTube ( @Chocobozzz )

Soundcloud -> @funkwhale

MeetUp -> @GetTogetherComm

Medium -> #Plume ( @BaptisteGelez )

Reddit -> @prismo and Anancus ( @tuxether )

LinkedIn -> @cloutstream

Google Calendar -> @calendar_social

Anything missing from the list? What else is needed?

#Federation #Fediverse

@cj What's the relationship between 'likes' and 'liked' fields? I see 'liked' is used in outboxResolver while 'likes' is used in inboxResolver.

What day is it? πŸ—“οΈ Friday! Time for #Alternatives for #FollowFriday :gentleblob:

@tom79 Mastalab: #Mastodon app for #Android

@tuxether Anancus: Open alternative to #Reddit (see also @prismo , another open Reddit alternative)

@ubuntustudio Ubuntu Studio: Version of Ubuntu aimed at artists, audio producers, video editors etc.

@fsf Free Software Foundation: Oldest organisation promoting open source software

ActivityPub progress in anancus: Got most of the interfaces implemented. Now to test. It does seem to work at first glance. The app supports multiple AP persons and multiple AP groups.

Kroeg by @puckipedia was one of the first applications to take ActivityPub implementation seriously. Puck has been rewriting it, and it sounds like things are shaping up: puckipedia.com/kroeg/

Note that a lot of people have said "well, ActivityPub has turned out to be whatever @gargron implemented in Mastodon". It's true that there's a risk when you have one piece of software being so dominant in early implementation, but a lot of people saying that didn't see the huge amount of testing that @puckipedia and @gargron did against each others' software early on.

I guess this is the point where I ask for help. If anyone familiar with Rust would like to work with me on a library for the Mastodon API please reach out to me.
