Going to write a tutorial on building a "Hello World" service for the fediverse as soon as I can figure out how to federate with the fediverse.

This is exactly what I want to do: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/ ...but things seemed to have changed in a year. So I'm looking at Peertube as well as Mastodon; have Webfinger support; getting ActivityStreams in there; I think I need Pubsubhubbub now? What the hell is "salmon" and this "magic key" that I apparently need?

Okay some of that stuff is from OStatus and not needed for a pure #ActivityPub application. Test accounts now show up in search; working on posts next.

@wakest Awesome! I didn't know about it before. Will definitely play around with it
