@feld I cried for this feature just earlier today.
@Alamantus my ask ( in https://mastodon.technology/@shine/104446188631358911 ) was for a personal library that I could self-host to keep track of the 'physical' books that I have or want.
I didn't want a full-blown library management systems; more like a glorified items list specific to books ( which could perhaps fetch the book's metadata, etc )
But yeah! #Readlebee is the project I was talking about that uses the Inventaire API, and @Readlebee is the account I created to talk about it! It's still in very early development, but the goal is what an awful lot of people are looking for: a federated Goodreads alternative. Still a ways to go, but this #ActivityPub question has been good training so far, at least.
How about ActivityPub Conference?
A conference about the present and future of ActivityPub, the world’s leading federated social web standard.
Following a successful inaugural conference in 2019, we have expanded APConf 2020 to a four day event that will occur entirely on line
@sl007 Sounds like a good time! I'll check it out and see what it involves!
I'm not sure Readlebee is far enough along to have a place on that forum yet, but hopefully soon! I'll look into that, too!
cool. We can propose Birds of Feather sessions until last minute if anything comes to your mind.
Then I'd like to inform you about this project (forgive me, if I see overlaps, I always try to connect people ;)
@sl007 That's very interesting! It sounds like it so extremely close to what people waiting for Readlebee are wanting except the focus is slightly off (textbooks/courses instead of general reading).
I'm definitely going to start following LearnAwesome's development, though! That seems like an excellent idea!
