ActivityPub plugin for GNU Social 1.0 Alpha


(c) Free Software Foundation, Inc

This is the README file for GNU Social's ActivityPub plugin. It includes general information about the plugin.


This plugin adds ActivityPub support to GNU Social.


  1. Put all files in /plugins/ActivityPub

  2. Add addPlugin('ActivityPub'); to your /config.php file.

  3. For better performance consider both:

    • disabling checkschema (instructions in GNU social's config.php), but don't forget to run it when updating plugins (including ActivityPub plugin)
    • installing Chimo's Redis plugin

For testing, (shouldn't be used in production)

    composer install && vendor/bin/phpunit
