Going to write a tutorial on building a "Hello World" service for the fediverse as soon as I can figure out how to federate with the fediverse.

This is exactly what I want to do: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/ ...but things seemed to have changed in a year. So I'm looking at Peertube as well as Mastodon; have Webfinger support; getting ActivityStreams in there; I think I need Pubsubhubbub now? What the hell is "salmon" and this "magic key" that I apparently need?

@matt I'm not sure how helpful this is for your use case, but you can toot anything coming from a RSS feed (i.e. a blog). discourse.joinmastodon.org/t/p

@quimgil Thanks, though I'm actually trying to enable federation for blogs on @write_as, i.e. making the individual blogs there followable accounts in the fediverse. So just trying to understand all the protocols that need to be implemented to get there
