Why it shouldn't integrate into the Fediverse?

Well you see, the maintainer of Postmill, the software that powers Raddle, sits in a big office with a single large button in front her that says "magically add fediverse support", and she refuses to press it.

Who will write the implementation?

No. Especially on the account of what would a raddle instance do that others don't and at what cost to implement and with whom's labor?

I doubt you'll be able to answer these satisfactorily for enough ppl to implement.

No, because it contradicts anarchist principles of free association. Federation should be opt-in, not opt-out.

Contrary to what many people believe, we already do federation. We link to various articles by anarchist collectives, and they link back to us too. That's opt-in federation. Fediverse is the opposite: you share to everyone and everyone shares to you, even ones that may be fascist or redfash. You can of course block them or make it a whitelist, but that's a hassle (and the latter will earn you contempt from the fediverse community, they will be like "noooo why are you defederating yourself you shouldn't do that")

I don't really care if raddle implement ActivityPub or not, but if I was to implement it, I'd not implement the full spec. I don't think you want people to be able to follow a single user, but just follow as a whole and get all the links in their mastodon feed, for example. At most, I'd implement that you could follow specific forums, tho, but I'd certainly not let people content appear on the feed, tho.

ActivityPub can really be seen as an RSS feed on steroid if you only implement the publishing part of the spec, since it'll simply syndicate your content to the Fediverse, and if I understand your point, this is opt-in and not opt-out, since people can follow you if they want or not.

no because implementing activitypub would be a pain in the ass, also lemmy already does this, though it's filled with mls


when_you_sleep wrote

also why did you put the fediverse logo?, i don't want to be annoying but i think that if the image doesn't help to provide more info or something then don't put it since it puts more load on the server

Is there a specific community you want to federate with?

Various but here I will give focus in one. (anti-colonial anarchist collective that offers federated social media to anarchist collectives and individuals in the fediverse)


mima wrote

So how is creating an account in and selecting and linking their toots here in Raddle for posting not sufficient for you?

I saw that there was a discussion about ActivityPub implementation here but it wasn't (at that time) a thing that they wanted to do. But, now I think that with Fediverse growing and expanding (7 million on Mastodon instances by the way) I think that it's time to us to integrate. As myself, i'm a user of Mastodon and other types of services connected to the Fediverse... it would be nice to see Raddle integrating into fediverse via activitypub. It would be very cool and amazing.
