#ActivityPub support is now available to everyone! 🎉 🎊
Write.as blogs don't federate by default, so to enable it you can either sign up with our new page: https://write.as/new/blog/federated, or if you're already on Write.as, go to your blog's Customize page and click "Enable federation"
Note this also includes support for custom domains. So if your domain is hosted with us, you can now choose your handle when you enable federation and your blog will be accessible in the fediverse!
Hi @tuxether @switchingsocial @Aisyk @se7entime sorry for delay, I'm currently "off" (holidays 😎 )
To answer some questions:
- the aim of @peerpx is to be a 500px alternative -> #photography as "art" not as a blogging method like Instagram could be
- @peerpx will implement #activitypub to allow interactions from #fediverse
- it's a side project and as you can imagine there is a lot of work to do, so no ETA for know.
Feel free to contact me or @peerpx for any questions|suggestions 🤟
It is really exciting to see all this projects based on #ActivityPub. Great to see the raise of all this free, federated and open solutions. I have the feeling that we might be at a turning point where we can finally build the momentum to regain control over the internet. https://mastodon.at/@switchingsocial/100464510004807543
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!
#ActivityPub implementation really is bare-bones, but more right now is unnecessary. There are many unanswered questions, especially around privacy.
For example, what happens when a user changes their blog from Public to Private or Password-protected? The existence of an account in the fediverse gives away information we don't otherwise divulge on Write.as.
What auth platform should we implement on an #activitypub app? I see most places are using email sign up, but that means the user has to maintain a separate password and account per site.
Is there an OpenID implementation or other federated solution we should use for this? If not, can we agree on a standard one that most fediverse apps support to make onboarding users easier? We probably have enough scale with the fediverse to get traction.
Does anyone know if the project or developer is on Mastodon? I tried having a look but couldn't find anything.
I am having a look into #ActivityPub.
I have read the specs and now written a little script that just gets the #JSON-LD from #Mastodon using a header so that I don't get the website. Reading mastodon feeds like that is actually quite fun. And there are many interesting discoveries. This will be a nice field to have a look into.
I want to keep you updated with my plan:
- ⌛ I want to have a running instance by the 3rd of august.
- The client should be functional by the end of this week.
- 🚊The basics endpoints for the API are working but I need to keep adding things.
This is an optimistic plan but is what I'm trying to do.
Also I'll upload a how to install guide and I need to update 🕸️
Currently implementing activitypub.js - An opinionated, practical and useful implementation of the ActivityPub spec
