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.

@jdormit One of my goals for the comming years, not sure whether it could be 2019 or not, depends on how quickly I catch onto C#, but I want to make a library for .NET for ActivityPub first, because it's simpler, and then Zot. second. Seems that all of the other frameworks are covered. Fact that .NET folks are left out's been driving me nuts for a while now.

For sure, make it happen! The more platforms we get on the network the better it gets.

@jdormit Is it even possible, though? I think if it were, then wouldn't someone have done it already? DNN community sorta laughed at me in an odd way when I mentioned it to them. Acted like they didn't have a clue what I was talking about. I mean, the new standards of ActivityPub, Webmention, and so on can't be that new, can they? Then again, there's that whole misconception that anything written for the .NET Framework isn't open source because the underlying OS is not open source. That definition is too narrow for me.

@cambridgeport90
I don't see why it wouldn't be possible, it's just a specification. I don't know too much about The .NET ecosystem though so I can't comment on what it would look like. The API I'm aiming for with my library is a "bring-your-own-database" kind of thing - you configure the DB details and the library gives you a nice API to create, send, and receive Activities.

@jdormit I'm liking that. Could be nice for SQL server supported applications, too. Often wondered, as well whether Pterotype works on ProjectNami, the version of Wordpress that supports native SQL Server rather than MariaDB. (it will if it doesn't use database calls, but instead relies only on the WP API.) And I know that this is a complete nonsequetur, but I'm also from Boston. I'm hoping that I can run into you at a meetup sometime; I always attend those where I can.

It probably would, but I haven't tested it out. The Cambridgeport reference in your username gave you away 😆 What sort of meetups do you go to? The only one I regularly is the Clojure Group meetup at Akamai in Kendall, but I would like to go to more

@jdormit I'm absolutely everywhere. another favorite of mine is Powershell, even though I haven't been to one of those meetings in a while. And, who knows, I might join you one of these days. That sounds like a rather interesting language. I've heard of it, though never studied it.
