go get github.com/go-fed/activity

This repository contains three libraries for use in your golang applications:

  • vocab: An ActivityStreams Vocabulary library
  • streams: A convenience library for the ActivityStreams Vocabulary
  • pub: ActivityPub SocialAPI (Client-to-Server) and FederateAPI (Server-to-Server)

This repository supports vgo and is remotely verifiable.

This library is biased. It forgoes understanding JSON-LD in exchange for static typing. It provides a large amount of default behavior to let Social, Federated, or both kinds of ActivityPub applications just work.

The go-fed.org website has a tutorial. It also hosts godoc documentation for every version of this library.

Status
