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 Node.js server.


@darius thanks for writing an ActivityPub article that doesn't focus on Mastodon alone. The power of AP is that it's an open standard, but most people using just Mastodon as an example dilutes that

@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)
