Support ActivityPub #1701
Known should support the ActivityPub ("AP") standard. It is the fruit of the last several years of work at the W3C. It provides:
Projects like pump.io and GNU MediaGoblin are implementing the standard. More info at ActivityPub network.
There is a large contingency going that will be working on Activity Pub in Berlin...not so. I will be attending remotely, tried to find the money, but will also be pretty useless in terms of AP..
That being said I am happy to help with Activity Pub in anyway I can for Nurenberg or Berlin. Will also be trying to create an idno webmention badgs plugin.
Maybe we just convince @snarfed to release an paid enterprise version of bridgy.
Bridgy itself is mature and scalable. Bridgy Fed, on the other hand, is neither of those things, and probably never will be. it's definitely usable, and i welcome new users! i'd like to think it's a good way for anyone with an indieweb site, Known included, to try AP...but Ben's right, built in support is probably the right answer for Known long term.
also fwiw i don't really ever have plans to make either Bridgy or Bridgy Fed a paid business. i'm lucky that i can support them with my own money and time. if i asked users to pay, that wouldn't help me any, and would add a bunch of responsibility and obligation and extra work that i don't want.
and yes, Bridgy is open souce, but i definitely don't want to encourage people to run their own. multiple instances that all look official, let anyone sign up, point users to me to support, but are running arbitrary old (possibly buggy) versions of the code would be very bad for all the obvious reasons.
apologies for the rant. tldr: feel free to use Bridgy and Bridgy Fed, and don't worry about any burden!
