Reminder for all the alpha players giving feedback: Don't armchair-game-design. Talk about your expectations and how stuff made you feel:

🚫 "Guns should hit 27.3% harder"

I believe in fact-based news with a long term focus that is completely ad-free.

Still no documentation and not anywhere close to done, but my library is open source at github.com/pterotype-project/a.

My goal is to provide a well-tested, flexible library that handles the complicated parts of ActivityPub (JSON-LD, persistence, addressing, etc.) in a way that can be plugged into an existing PHP codebase with no hassle. That'll help me refactor , and will also make it easy for other developers to make developers to make plugins for Joomla, Drupal, etc.
