@dansup Hey, are you active at all on the Pixelfed section of SocialHub (https://socialhub.activitypub.rocks/c/software/pixelfed)? I wanted to continue the conversation about Article support in PixelFed in a public place like that, if that's alright.
@dansup @matt I have not been active enough to actually comment on socialhub topics yet (or at least not this one? I don't have the option) but my suggestion to Matt would be to generate some kind of optional attachment for articles as text-screenshots (with the alt text of course) https://socialhub.activitypub.rocks/t/article-support/353
Alternatively, Pixelfed could do that when it receives a text-only article, which would take the burden off other servers
@matt @dansup FYI, I've asked if there is a place to discuss these questions more generally! I'd love to have somewhere to brainstorm questions like "what are different ways Article/Event/etc could be rendered on different broad categories of AP server" https://socialhub.activitypub.rocks/t/place-to-discuss-general-issues-of-interop-between-implementations/362
I think a lot of these questions can be solved with creative design thinking (like text screenshots) but we need to pose the questions first!
