I wrote an article for the Mozilla Hacks blog that's a brief technical introduction to ActivityPub. I also provide an intro to my simple #ActivityPub Node.js server.
@darius This is excellent! I was looking for a simple node ActivityPub solution and your article is a great starting point.
@0x1C3B00DA I'm really excited for Pixelfed to get full federation so I can put it side by side with the various Twitter clones and say "look, these run on the same standard". (PeerTube is a little conceptually different since it's federation of metadata plus peer to peer content serving. I think that's extremely important but it complicates the AP story)
@darius nice, u know why the working group close? I feel, there is so much more to do.
@Transflux I don't know, perhaps because the point was to publish the spec. There is a community group in its place.
@darius oh I didn't find that, just a silent Google group... quite ironic actually
@darius hey, what are you doing with the dat protocol. I would like to include it in an upcoming project.
@darius this chat is quasi private, no?
@Transflux no this is a public conversation since our statuses are set to public
@darius ups... :) anyway I thought it has great potential but the development seemed to slow down, so its great to see that you are taking it on
@darius totally dig ur stuff since years btw. I'm totally into weird chat androids too
@darius i mean i want to include dat :)
@Transflux right now I'm still learning it!
@darius oho. ok i understand. so its probably not that straight forward. But it would be great if it would improve, ... not that I used it much. actually trying toshare something with it for the 1. time
Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.
If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet!
