N00b #question:

I just created a #Pixelfed account and everything is hunky-dory, except that it doesn't seem to federate with anything! Not with other Pixelfed nodes and not with other federated platforms. All I can see is the local results - and that's slim pickings at best. Is this a permissions issue related to my pixelfed server of choice only?

So, to rephrase this as a question: how do I find content from other Pixelfed instances, and how do I follow people on different #ActivityPub platforms?

#pixelfed #friendica #mastodon #pleroma #help #help-needed #Federation #Fediverse

Do you wish the Fediverse had a Reddit-style link sharing and discussion system?

There are two in development, Prismo and Lemmy:

Today I'll hopefully have a fair chunk of time to work on my #suros, a single-user responsive object server implemented inside #Emacs. I've been tinkering with its internals, inspired from working with #MUD engines. It's meant to play nice with #ActivityPub and the #IndieWeb, while pulling data from one's emacs client or org-mode files.

#Diaspora weigert sich, #ActivityPub zu implementieren. Daher seht ihr wahrscheinlich den (viel größeren) Rest der freien Welt nicht, wie hier #Mastodon.


¿Problem Sync Friendica and ActivityPub?

#question !Friendica Support !Technical Support

Are there any known synchronization problems between #mastodon and #friendica ?

I can currently send messages to #activitypub, but I'm not receiving any from there.

I've done some tests to prove it and it just isn't working properly.

At first friendica's account appeared with a lock on mastodon's account, and then I changed that condition to friendica. Can that condition have any effect on the communication?

Thank for any answer


Federated code hosting

Are you interested in #federated #code hosting? This term means a site like #GitHub, #GitLab, #Cogs or #Gitea - but instead of all servers being an individual part of the #web, they talk to each other just like servers in the #fediverse. Imagine being able to open issues, make pull requests and engage in discussion, to any other repository from your own personal code hosting server?

Approximately one year ago #Microsoft bought GitHub, kicking of something that become a group of people discussing formalizing a specification for federated code hosting platforms. This specification work ended up with the name #ForgeFed and is currently developed by the #Peers community. The end result will be a set of extensions on top of #ActivityPub that allows any code hosting platform to federate with any other code hosting platform.

ForgeFed is using the brand new #Feneas forum for discussing various spec items. Everybody is welcome to participate, though especially good would be to get people from the various code hosting platforms to give their thoughts about what they would be happy to implement.

Join the discussion here:

The ForgeFed repository for the specification is hosted at notabug.

Announcing the 2nd Vervis federation demo!

1st demo was about federated ticket comments. This new demo is about **federated opening of new tickets**.

If you haven't tried the 1st demo, it should still work, so you can easily do both 1st and 2nd. I don't remove features when I add new ones 😉

Take a look and leave a comment there (or here) if you have a moment! 😀

@Hypolite Petovan i guess @Adam Gaskins is referring to the "Social" app which is in development for @Nextcloud ?☁️? :

I tried it on my Nextcloud instance and it is possible to interact with #ActivityPub services like Mastodon or Friendica, but currently it's far away from production and lacks some core features.

5 Years, 5 ambitious alternatives.

2014 - Misskey
2015 - Hubzilla

#activityPub #fediverse

Hey #Ruby devs, if you're looking to help out the #fediverse, check out #prismo! It's a link sharing platform, similar to or hacker news, that federates over #ActivityPub.

The lead (and only) dev has to back off development for a while, but it would be great to spin up a team that could pick up the slack and keep the project moving.

You can find the repo here:

and the matrix room here:!

#Lemmy is an open federated alternative to Reddit and is currently early in development. You can follow the project at:


There's also the open federated #Prismo, which is in a more advanced state of development:


You can try Prismo at:

(If you copy a Prismo user or post address into the Mastodon search box and click search, you can interact with it.)

(Thanks to @gaja for info about Lemmy.)

#Alternatives #Fediverse #ActivityPub #Reddit

#activitypub I don't know enough about the guts of AP to know why but why does linking to content on AP lead to so many requests from Mastodon (I'm noticing that Mastodon does this in my logs)? Is it for fetching oEmbed stuff?

Already €30,000 worth of donations! Only €5,000 more to reach the second milestone! 💖 💖 💖 If we succeed, we commit to do everything we can to provide you with a fully federated #Mobilizon around fall 2019. #fediverse #ActivityPub #JoinMobilizon

I don't think many folks here in the English speaking side of the fedi know about #Juick ( but its another part of the #fediverse that is already federating. I just discovered that they are also open source and the code is all available at licensed under AGPLv3. #ActivityPub

I just love telling the story of how federation works with #ActivityPub by showing a #Peertube video feed in Mastodon, commenting under a video, hen viewing my comment under that video on the Peertube instance.

#activitydesk #activitypub

it's still very early and requires both Rust and Qt but here it is:

still investigating wrapper libraries versus building it from scratch

GNU/Social will support ActivityPub via my plugin before Mastodon and Pleroma deprecate OStatus.

I look forward to helping modernize the GS code base this summer 😄

#gnuSocial #activityPub #fediverse

wait no is anyone out there working on #activitypub groups?

tbh it could be just a dedicated shared "timeline" of sorts (for the #ActivityPub folks) that people can remotely join / subscribe to. that way the kind of content in there can be represented by _anyone_ / _anything_.

(The first thing I want to do is help make a local group for posting stuff I wanna give away)

Thank you to everyone who supported the project and spread the word.

I think 2019 will be the year of next generation fediverse projects like Anfora, Funkwhale, Go-Fed, PeerTube, Pixelfed, Plume, Prismo, Pterotype and WriteFreely. #activityPub #fediverse #federation

You can add your WordPress site to the Fediverse by installing an ActivityPub plugin.

This lets anyone on Mastodon etc follow your site, comment on posts and share them on the Fediverse.

There are two WordPress ActivityPub plugins available right now:


AP for WordPress

An example of a WordPress site using Pterotype is WeDistribute:

#Fediverse #ActivityPub #Blogs

More fixes for go-fed (#golang #ActivityPub library) landing now.

Uncovered a few more as I build out my federated blog.

Not coming at you @kawa but to add thread rolling support would be defeatist to what #ActivityPub can do.

Instead, one could be allowed to write as much as they'd like to in posts.

I don't do this because it's easy. I do it because it is challenging. If it were easy, generic #golang #ActivityPub libraries would be a dime a dozen.

I wish I had more to show for the past few months, but since I work for The Man it means a lot of sh*t I deal with is the kind where if I aired it out it would have disaterous consequences for myself, my wife, and my dog. And render the project unusable. I can't let a side project that I do for love ruin three lives.

I don't care about the software, I care about the people.

It's one thing to tell me go-fed/activity as #ActivityPub software is faulty on technical reasons. Or politely poke fun of how few users there are. I am ok with this, it is a software thing. It can be fixed.

But it's entirely another thing to try to tear *me* down over it's lack of users, or say I am undeserving of praise, or that I am holding the AP ecosystem back because of this library. This is a people problem that can't be fixed.

Wow okay. I'm really wishing things like 202 Accepted was used in place of #ActivityPub.

question for #PleromaDev: is there any reason why #ActivityPub / #ActivityStreams version of the pages aren't advertised on the HTML-rendered pages?

#lazyweb anyone know of a list of projects that support the #ActivityPub #C2S (Client to Server) part of the spec?

Today, at 21:00 Pacific time, there is going to be a #Fediverse / #ActivityPub "bird of feather" session at the Southern California Linux Expo, Ballroom C

Btw, Pythonistas. I'm in testing phase of delivery and receive for my #federation library for #ActivityPub support. After that it's mostly implementing objects and such.

Q: are there any well working JSON-LD libraries or shall I just go the way I initially was going to, ie "it's all JSON"? 😀

#python #json #jsonld social media cross-posting addon

!Friendica Support

I have this old #blogger page that I would like to cross-post on and show Federated comments in the comment section.

Is that possible with the Blogger #addon? I am already stuck with the fact that the old Blogger API URL seems to not exist anymore?

Also what happens if I post via the interface... does Friendica pull these in, or is this a one way link? What about comments?

Alternatively: anyone had luck with using with Friendica now that #ActivityPub is available?

Let's get some facts down:
- No single person created the #Fediverse
- No single authority controls #ActivityPub
- #ActivityStreams allow federating data
- AS can be readily extended to have new kinds of data
- Instances are the authorities on their own data

We should work towards having decentralized (instances) "AS/AP Authorities" who can extend the protocol and own the extensions, while federating these extensions so other devs can discover them in a centralized manner.

I tooted an idea a while back on an #ActivityPub federated #Podcasting app. Well I found a project called #PubCast. All there is is a Github page some code that doesn't actually work yet but I love the fact that it's being worked on.

Expanding on my idea, they should add support for #WebTorrent too. Wouldn't it be awesome if anyone could setup their own podcast site and then people could follow via the #Fediverse or #RSS and stream via webtorrent so a popular show doesn't bring down their site?

Hello !Friendica Support

I would like to have the ability to discover content on the various new fediverse platforms that are using #ActivityPub (for example Pixelfed or Peertube).

Would it be possible to split the Activity Pub entry in the Protocol widget into the various platforms? Then it would be possible to go to /community and say something like /community?nets=apub_pixelfed.

Has anyone done any back-of-the-napkin calculation on what the server demands will be to run an #ActivityPub server if the number of folks participating increases by an order of magnitude? Can people even realistically self-host at that point? What's the upper bound on the number of m.s-sized instances someone's home server can federate with?

@jalcine Yeah, you're right. Now that I've had a chance to sleep on it what I'd rather say is that #ActivityPub seems like a silo in #IndieWeb terms, but that's okay.
