ActivityPub can be confusing and/or hard to test or develop against.
I started a new side project called FediDB to help Pixelfed and other implementations debug federation issues.
It will be launching soon, need to test DMs and Federated Stories in Pixelfed 😅
I'm eager to work with other projects on this!
@dansup that's dope!
BTW, do you have some nodes I can test federation against from social.charlag.space?
@dansup This looks awesome. I am working on a federated question/answer platform, (#fediQuest), which could definitely benefit from this. I had to dig into the Mastodon sources on occasion and modify my Mastodon instance to log more verbosely in order to test things like HTTP signatures before, being able to easily test that Create, Follow, Like etc. activities work correctly and can be seen/accepted by 3rd party servers would make the process much more pleasant.
I'd gladly be an early tester.
@dansup I appreciate all the hard work and effort that goes into all the non-commercial software I use and enjoy on a daily basis.
@dansup I will work on a new project using ActivityPub in the following months, it will be definitively useful. 🙂
