mastodon is not just a server (and why that's not necessarily a good thing) by @kity

The post is about the current trend of having "specialized" AP servers rather than the dream of general, extensible ones where you can swap out frontends using the client-to-server API. Happy to hear more people talking and thinking about this!

@kity Btw the one AP project that does this for both the client and server AFAIK is @puckipedia's Kroeg, which I think still doesn't have users aside from @puckipedia yet, but I know she is thinking hard about these things


@cwebber @kity @puckipedia Kroeg does indeed look interesting - may have a play this weekend... :D
