If you are using npm (the node packet manager), installing is as easy as: npm install ostatus
If you are using this from source, you can install the dependencies using npm from the root of the source folder: npm bundle
Or you can install all dependencies manually:
The API is documented in the wiki.
The following pieces of the protocol are implemented:
- Lookup a user account and return the user meta in a JSON format
- Rendering of host/user meta based on a JSON input object
- Subscribe/Unsubscribe to a topic on another hub
- Verify a subscription request from an other hub
- Distribute content to subscribers (with support for authenticated content distribution)
- Lookup and parse a hcard into a JSON object
- Render an hcard from a JSON object
- Fetch an atom feed with activitystream content and return a JSON representation of the stream. The JSON object is a valid activitystream JSON object.
- Render an atom feed from an array of activities in JSON
What is missing:
In the bin/ folder, you'll find a few simple command line clients for ostatus.
