I wrote an article for the Mozilla Hacks blog that's a brief technical introduction to ActivityPub. I also provide an intro to my simple #ActivityPub Node.js server.
@ckeen @grainloom (if you don't, this is what I'm talking about: https://kver.wordpress.com/2014/10/25/presenting-dwd-a-candidate-for-kde-window-decorations/)
@ckeen @grainloom well, the idea *is* to make it portable. The shell and the terminal emulator would negotiate over some standard escape sequence-based protocol, and that protocol would not be bash- or GTK- specific, it'd work for any toolkit and shell combination. A bit like DWDs if you remember those.
I've made a mock-up to illustrate my ideas about the next-gen terminal experience!
• the pathbar
• username, hostname and git branch displayed in the UI, shrinking the shell prompt back to just a $
• commands as cards
• syntax highlighting, including graying out the output a bit to differentiate it from commands themselves
• autocompletion (displayed in a native widget)
• built-in error handling options
• the time each command took (on the right)
There's a bunch of CSS/template stuff that I have to clean up; I want to make my site mobile-friendly and all that. But federation works today, and once Mastodon properly adopts some kind of support for the Article activity, it'll look good on this end.
@Julianoe Sure! The idea is that your blog posts and comments will be published in the ActivityPub format (the same format that Mastodon, PeerTube, and a bunch of other apps use). This means that people on Mastodon or the other apps will be able to follow your blog and see the posts right in their timelines.
Get the release for your platform here: https://github.com/writeas/writefreely/releases/tag/v0.1.0
Then head over to our guide to get set up: https://writefreely.org/start
Toot, toot ... and we're off! Hi Mastodon community. We're so excited there's this open source and decentralised social network to be a part of. It aligns nicely with our values. We believe in having open source alternatives to all the big names out there 😉
‘WhatsApp Cofounder Brian Acton Gives The Inside Story On #DeleteFacebook’
At the end of the day, I sold my company,” Acton says. “I sold my users’ privacy to a larger benefit. I made a choice and a compromise. And I live with that every day.”
@pixelfed I have this strange bug: I tried to register with different email addresses but everytime the error is address being already registered. But trying to recover password it replies that no account exists with that address...?
I have been notified by an Admin here that they are getting 60 reports a day about my account. As far as I can tell, I'm not breaking any rules, and I've done my best to be a good person here. But this admin is going to suspend my account.
It's the Admin's instance, so I fully support their choice to eliminate a source of frustration, but something to consider: a person who is doing nothing wrong can be run off one instance by a mob from another instance. That seems ... not cool. 1/x
