Working on getting barebones ActivityStreams/ActivityPub Event support in Hometown. So far I'm rendering incoming events with a google calendar link, my hope is to support other cals and maybe create/attach an .ical or similar to posts.
(This is prep work for a simple federated invite-people-to-your-events site that will probably use huge pieces of https://gath.io)
@darius I am glad you are working on this! the last thing keeping me on facebook.
@darius ooh, I'm excited!
@jarhead last time I tried Friendica I couldn't really figure out how to use it (not from a UI perspective but like "what is fun or useful about this that would give someone cause to use it"). I don't trust my ability to learn things from code if I can't even get a handle on the user experience. And let me say that this is a me problem, not a friendica problem
@indio Thanks for this. I've confirmed that it barebones works with Friendica. The Osada event is missing a 'name' field, which seems to be required per ActivityStreams Vocabulary, but I can look for their "summary" field as a backup
@indio Ah okay. I just assumed that the examples were the minimum viable object.
