A networked place to store posted web documents. This is meant to allow for distributed social commentary and reaction around these documents using best practices recommended or noted by the W3C Social Web Working Group.
- Wrote a poem but too embarassed to attach your name? Don't worry. Post it here!
- Want to reply to a thought somewhere on the web, but that place doesn't have a comment system and you don't want to set up a blog or give your information to another organization? Post it here! Your Post can have an in-reply-to relation to another web resource.
- Want to fact-check a selection of text somewhere on the web, but don't have a place to do it? Post it here! Your post can be an annotation of another web resource.

Create a Post
Configure distbin with the following environment variables:
DB_DIR- path to a directory in which distbin should read/write data
PORT- HTTP Port for distbin to listen on
EXTERNAL_URL- The public-facing base URL that distbin is deployed at, e.g.
INTERNAL_URL- If distbin is running with a network configuration such that it cannot make requests to the
EXTERNAL_URL, all outgoing requests to the
EXTERNAL_URLwill be replaced with this
INTERNAL_URL. See ./etc/distbin-nginx-subpath/docker-compose.yml for an example.
DISTBIN_DELIVER_TO_LOCALHOST- default: false in production - Whether or not to allow distbin to make requests to
localhostURLs. This is discouraged in the security considerations of the ActivityPub spec
