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.
@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
