Thanks to @strypey for curating new apps / tools 🔭
@lightone @strypey also Smithereen which I'm making. VKontakte-like social network written in Java (probably the first ever #ActivityPub implementation in Java) with friends and walls and photos and groups... Of which currently only friends and walls are implemented. Not quite ready enough and so not published anywhere yet, but I'm looking forward to it.
@grishka There was a Java project somewhere on our AP watchlist. This is good news. I hope you'll copy at least parts of VK features. :) I think its clean and (arguably) well-structured interface is very user-friendly.
@lightone I'll copy as much as makes sense, except there will never be the ability to post as a community.
Also recently learned that the way friend requests work in VK is confusing to those who never used it... Or I'm just bad at explaining things.
@tomat0 see fediverse.party for more apps, as well as switching.software
A few to look at off the top of my head:
* PeerTube: video-sharing
* Pixelfed: photo-sharing
* Funkwhale: music-sharing (podcast support in the works)
* Mobilizon: events invites
* Plume: long form blogs
* Hubzilla: CMS, think federated Wordpress:
* Pterotype: plugin for Wordpress blogs, supports following and federated comments (like PeerTube does)
@lightone whoa. super awesome.
epicyon looks like exactly wnat i could use to have a basic mastodon server for me and 10 friends/family members.
@jump_spider Thanks, but no. I only use ActivityPub because we failed to turn RSS into the distributed social network it should have become.
You may recall in the past I said I would not federate with another protocol unless it supported nomadic identity, media privacy, and offered spam resistance and the ability to moderate comments. We're very close to having all of these things over ActivityPub (I've been implementing and testing these requirements for a few weeks now), so I'm remaining true to my moral principles.
@xavavu given this, how likely is it that the work done on #Zap to develop newer version(s) of #Zot, and move AP support into core, will be backported to #Hubzilla? I've heard that when Hubzilla hubs use the federation plug-in to support AP, Diaspora, and OStatus, it breaks #NomadicIdentity.
Thanks for the heads-up @xavavu , I've added Zap to the AP watchlist on our wiki:
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
