Hello fediverse! lib.reviews/ is a free/open/nonprofit alternative to proprietary review sites like #Goodreads, #Yelp, #IMDB.

It plugs into #opendata sources: #Wikidata, #OpenLibrary and #OpenStreetMap (OSM integration is very basic at this point). Still a long way to go but we have a small community and lots of reviews already. On GitHub at: github.com/eloquence/lib.revie - IRC: #lib.reviews on irc.freenode.net - Matrix: matrix.to/#/#lib.reviews:matri



Hi, are there any plans for it to be a federated platform?

@danipozo I (@eloquence, the main dev) would love that, but it's huge project to do that well. Of course if anyone wants to take it on I'd be more than happy to help them explore the codebase. For myself, I'll poke at at least making it possible to follow reviewers via ActivityPub.
