Pixelfed Stories are federated using a custom activity type, bearcaps and only delivered to other instances (for now). The bearcap object can only be fetched for 20 minutes, after that we rotate story media urls.
It works great, and to think we went from not-federating for so long to being the first AP-only project to use bearcaps!
In addition, we're using bearcaps and a limited time window for fetching the activity object. Story media urls will be rotated after the window closes.
I wish they were still around 😔
