I've released version 2.0.0 of my RSS to ActivityPub converter! This now provides functionality I'd hacked in to rss.friend.camp - it requires OAuth 2.0 authorization for someone to create a new AP account for an RSS feed.

I used to run this service "in the open" but was overwhelmed by spammers. Now the admin of a Mastodon (or Pleroma or any federated server that is an OAuth 2 provider) can provide this converter as a service solely to members of their instance.



This is awesome, and it's just the kind of thing I was looking for and I might use it! I wish I'd known about Express ActivityPub Server as I have questions/thoughts on it.

There are a lot of moving pieces to this- the AP server, beanstalk, the OAuth server- maybe a longer tutorial would be good about helping all the pieces fit?

Also can I contact you about what I'm doing and maybe areas of possible intersection?


@emacsen you're right, I could write up something longer

And feel free to tell me what you're up to!
