No, more like Mastodon?
Like a forum of forums? I’m very new to this idea though.
I would say the best way to describe might be ‘an aggregator of all chosen sources’, perhaps a Topic List with the Latest combined from n sources.
It’s open to debate what happens when you click on a topic. Perhaps, if the source is a remote forum, you are just redirected to the source forum immediately in a new tab. So you might argue it’s not a forum of forums as you are still deferring to each local forum to interact further.
This all comes down to a more detailed functional specification.
Yes that’s a good simple approach at least to begin with.
Is it just me or has this already been implemented, to some extent at least? Look at this:
Ah I see, thanks! I didn’t know about the Fediverse - looks very cool!
FYI, the SocialHub has moved under ActivityPub.rocks, the official home of the AP community, and Discourse has a category there:
I don’t so much about Federation and ActivePub but what I had in mind when I looked about this topic it having one user to connect into every discourse and having the “historic of this person” more or less like on stackoverflow where you are able to see on which forum the user is active and his accomplishment.
See these options. They are current methods for integrating activitypub. All are quite nice.
Forem apparently has a browser extension for federation going already. Haven’t tried it out, but maybe interesting for others on this topic:
Interesting, but it does not federate… also website doesn’t actually link to any information besides airtable.
Might be worth checking out Prismo, which is a Reddit Clone / Link Aggregation service built on Ruby, PostgreSQL and ActivityPub
I have a Mastodon instance up and working now for about a year. I would like to make my instance of Discourse operate the same, be able to follow other instance and receive their message. is there a up to date document walk you through setting this up, would be nice if it was a menu selection. I LOVE how easy it is to upgrade Discourse just a matter of press a button. Awesome
Consider using an RSS reader to subscribe to
You can use feed2toot. It supports multiple RSS feeds and can filter what it re-posts.
Are there instruction on where and how to install the option
When I execute the commands
feed2toot --populate-cache -c /etc/feed2toot/feed2toot.ini
I get this error
The parent directory of the lock file does not exist: /root/.config
I saw nothing in the instruction about this file
It has nothing to actually do with Discourse so you’ll want to ask the feed2toot project. Good luck.
Thanks James for the information
Matrix commenting might be interest, since it is able to federate / “bridge” with other chat systems. Not ActivityPub based, but it is both decentralized and currently supported to x-post to Matrix via Chat Integration plugin.
