Description

Though it's a ways off, a major milestone will be open-sourcing the Write.as platform. But beyond enabling people to self-host single blogs, we could really provide a unique platform by including federation out of the box -- basically a mini Write.as / Read Write.as combination for anyone to start their own small writing community. As I mentioned on writing.exchange:

What if Medium was federated and open source?

That's basically the idea.

Sounds good. Just some other things to note about this approach:

pixelfed doesn't support the @user syntax (it's pixelfed.social/qwazix and not pixelfed.social/@qwazix) so I think it's not a good idea to do the prismo thing.

Just to add to #2, we should probably just leverage the remoteusers table, adding a handle column (or however we name it). That would let us look up the handle and associated actor_id.

I think people will definitely expect mentions to turn into links, so we should address that now.

I'm looking into turning handles into links and I think I should link to the user on remote instances.

Just pushed branch activitypub-mentions where mentions work on pleroma.

I'll test with pleroma and then open the issue with mastodon. I'll also look around plume.

Hmm. Well that's good to know, but I think changing the entire post type really isn't the right solution. Do mentions work with Pleroma?

It seems that Mastodon ignores mentions in "Articles". Maybe now that mastodon has the [expand] functionality we should consider using "Note" when federating (at least up to a certain text length at least).

matt placed T483: Support OAuth2 authentication up for grabs.

Tried this path, but it ended up being overkill for Snap.as authentication. Instead, we'll add this to support Micropub publishing to Write.as in the future.
