In the next few month we will invest significantly into Nextcloud Social to make it a full member of the decentralised Mastodon open source fediverse using open standards like ActivityPub. github.com/nextcloud/social Who wants to help and contribute?

@nilesh @Karlitschek Maybe @carlschwan can give you some details ... I think this is saying they want to give it "parity" with Mastodon software in terms of ActivityPub features functionality etc.

@Karlitschek This is great and timely news, but please make anything that publicly reveals user-information opt-in. See github.com/nextcloud/server/is and twitter.com/tobiasmboelz/statu for example.

@Karlitschek Is there an easy guide on how to build nextcloud applications that use the files and shared files as the store of state?

@adymitruk @Karlitschek you want to develop a Nextcloud app or a desktop/mobile app that uses Nextcloud for syncing? For the former, the collective app might be a good example, for the later it's using the webdav protocol.

@carlschwan @Karlitschek ideally both. I'd like to see how you access the users' files from an app they use. I like that because I want them to see the store itself if they need and not just rely on the application.

Imagine being such a simp you let Elon Musk dictate your open source project's feature roadmap despite having a backlog of bugs so severe they unequivocally undermine your platform's integrity.

@Karlitschek finish your half-hearted dropbox clone before you start work on your half-hearted twitter clone.

@Karlitschek what about finishing encryption and fixing bugs first?

@Karlitschek rewrite Nextcloud in Rust (or Go) and we can talk. PHP is not going anywhere near my systems.

@Karlitschek Please don‘t! Focus on your main product (File Sharing and Synchronization) and make it more stable and reliable! We need Nextcloud to be a rock solid and reliable alternative in its original domain - not to try to compete on chat, video conferencing or social media.
