A while back I built a site that converts RSS feeds to ActivityPub actors that you can subscribe to from Mastodon and other ActivityPub-compliant social networks: bots.tinysubversions.com/conve

I've now also published the source code: github.com/dariusk/activtypub-

@darius Wonderful, thank you! Have you considered pulling the site favicons as avatars for the bot accounts?

@sluglife I already pull the image associated with the feed (see @flash_forward as an example). I suppose I could fall back to the favicon if no image is described in the feed metadata

@darius @sluglife This is great! Will existing feeds get the favicon failback or only new feeds?

@ryandaniels @sluglife only new feeds. I might write a script to refresh everything when I get around to it
