This was the idea of ActivityPub.
You have a Client-to-Server and a Server-to-Server portion.
Different diverse Clients can speak to your 1 server!
It would be wonderful.
See the specifications
But unfortunately mastodon does not support the Client-to-Server part and so they have their own “API” for the server.
And so, while upcoming projects will support it, the situation is as bad as it is …
@bonfire I love the name "Bonfire" - makes me think of Dark Souls, and the security bonfires provide. What was the source of the name?
It's helpful to have an idea of the size of the network, the number of active users, the deployment of new versions, etc.
By doing so, you'll contribute to those dashboards: https://network.funkwhale.audio/dashboards/d/overview/funkwhale-network-overview?orgId=1
You can opt-out at any time, from your pod settings (older stats will be deleted as well if you do).
Launching a new podcast soon, so finding out about this NLnet-funded Fediverse-compatible hosting solution is *great* timing...
When self-hosting ActivityPub based services would it be possible to have users identities at the main domain (@email@example.com) but have different ActivityPub based platforms used as a front-end for that identity?
So the user could log on at mastodon.example.com, pixelfed.example.com, friendica.example.com, etc, depending on what platform they preferred. But all their posts, followers, following, dms, etc, would follow them to whatever platform they chose.
