Are you making a PHP/WordPress ActivityPub implementation? If so, would you be interested in collaborating on It's meant to be a library that takes care of the tricky bits of the ActivityPub protocol so that developers can make new federated applications quickly.

I'm not :-)

I am actually playing with Go, but making my existing currently-on-wordpress blog part of the fediverse would be neat.

I ran into Pterotype, it's interesting; does it integrate with @pfefferle 's suite of plugins (so, if I install his host-meta and webfinger plugin, will Pterotype switch its handlers off)?

No, it doesn't currently. It's in a transitional period right now - I'm rewriting a significant portion of it but don't have a ton of free time for the next couple of months, so the current version is unpolished and the new version is a ways off. Still, making some forward progress. I like the idea of an AP server written in Go - if you use SQLite to store the object graph you could ship a standalone binary, which would make self-hosting really easy.

@jdormit @ivan @pfefferle Would be interested in any improvements needed in go-fed v1 to make this happen

@cj @pfefferle @jdormit I'll get around to it, eventually, I promise!!!11 :)
I did, I can't recall what was broken :-)

I remember there was an issue with OStatus + Pleroma. And I think before trying Pterotype I tried the latest ActivityPub plugin, and that it didn't work.


Web interactions are hard to debug. I wish it were easier to log incoming and outgoing HTTP(S) requests on all sides (along with exact file and line that made the call), but alas, that is not meant to be. :-)

@ivan I implemented a lot of stuff over the last weeks, perhaps you want to give it a second try... BTW. it also works with all of my other plugins...

I'll be happy to! I'll let you know how it goes
