@jack That's the plan! The CLI will be the first to work with any WF instance, with the mobile apps after that.


@koenaro Heh, no kidding. Blew my mind a bit when I wrote that.

After a few years of running a Mastodon instance (writing.exchange) or two (m.abunchtell.com) and bringing our own platform into the fediverse with ActivityPub support, earlier this month Write.as became a Mastodon sponsor.


As always, I'm excited to keep supporting the fediverse :fediverse: and watching it grow!

@zerojanvier Right, for now it's only possible to publish anonymously. We're slowly working on bringing the non-web clients up to date, though.

@bixmediocre Does that still happen when viewing the blog while logged out / in incognito mode?

It's likely caused by the hidden edit / delete / move menu that appears when you hover over the post.

I posted my code for rendering ActivityPub Articles in-line in Mastodon as a PR to the glitch-social fork. You can check it out here if you're curious or have feedback.

I wrote a review of federated blogging software Write.as. I can't hyperlink the review directly but here's the general page:


Anyway I highly recommend it! It's been great for @365-rfcs

@readwriteas they featured my on #ff and I didn't even know! Buh. So no I'm telling you all to follow them back. Everyone you follow on #mastodon is special, and these folks are no different. write.as and read.write.as are the open source, distributed version of #medium -- you should use and support them!

Still sloppy with git, but finally forked @write_as #WriteFreely and suggested my first pull request 😊 Almost ready to submit my build walkthrough, need few polishing steps though 🙄 fedi.dev/gytis/build-writefree

@tapple Thanks for the mention!

@Gina WriteFreely (writefreely.org) does work really well for this. You could set up an internal instance in multi-user mode, so each person could have their own blog and share in the same space.

If you want to try it out, feel free to create an account on our demo instance here: pencil.writefree.ly/invite/B94

Writing more pixelfed blog posts on write.as, I really love the simplicity of the platform.

Great work @matt and @cj for creating go-fed!

We're going to start doing for the many blogs published on Read.Write.as 📖

You can follow all of these directly from the fediverse!

@365-rfcs - Comments on one RFC a day, by @darius

@blog - "here is distant"

@inquiry - conversations with the Read Write.as community; "whatever comes to mind"

I'm also back to making progress on @snap_as today, pushing as hard as I can to finish that this month.

It'll include standalone accounts, which finally brings us into the next phase of our grand plan for a suite of apps. But it'll also include a documented API, so I can finally move forward on some other projects (like a WordPress importer for Write.as).

@FASA_Andrew_1879 Great to know! We're a very small team and our biggest needs are really in development at the moment, but I'll keep you in mind for the future.

Here are the full details on our open developer position:


We're looking for developers, but welcome anyone with similar web development skills to apply! There's plenty to be done around , and lots of opportunity to learn Go, if you're interested.
