@deadsuperhero Yep, just minus the data mining, and plus the open source, federation, indieweb, etc. :)
@switchingsocial @deadsuperhero @writefreely No support for it yet -- we're basically "don't @ me" by default. I'd like to do commenting as an standalone, AP-enabled commenting system that can be integrated into your WriteFreely blog (or any website).
This doesn't explain everything, but here's our discussion around it: https://discuss.write.as/t/remark-as-privacy-first-portable-comments/25
@mray 😀 federate all the things!
@cj Not at all -- please do! (It can replace Write.as, of course.)
But that's great to hear about the tool rewrite. And again, I'm not sure if you want users implementing things at such a low level in the library, but if you don't mind adding support for those constructors, that'd be great.
And btw, I'm getting a "connection refused" error on go-fed.org right now..
@cwcopa Thanks! 😀
Aand we just released #WriteFreely v0.2!
This version fixes some critical bugs around installation (especially on Windows) and federation. I'd say v0.2 is stable enough to start hosting yourself now.
@Hamishcampbell Very cool! Would love to know how it goes if you end up using it.
@cj (I've also run into this problem with Read.as, though with that I'm slowly migrating everything to go-fed, since it needs to do more than WriteFreely does.)
Also, a feature request: if there was an easy way to only generate the code I need so I can get the binary to a much smaller size and shorten compilation time, that would be even better :) I can work around the activity creation for now.
@cj It does use go-fed! At the time, I created a fork so I could quickly hack in a func for sending back an Accept activity: https://github.com/writeas/activity/commit/f33e28f3362acbd6e3e831175e756134fd655cc6
I know that wasn't the right way to do it, and I think you've made this easier now. But go-fed has been great particularly for parsing requests / activities. The only thing was I found it hard to construct activities, which is why I made this: https://github.com/writeas/web-core/tree/master/activitystreams
If go-fed would let me quickly create activities like this, I could use it alone.
We have paid subscriptions on Write.as (https://write.as/pricing), a paid desktop app (https://write.as/apps/desktop), and we're trying out hosting for #WriteFreely instances (https://writefreely.org/hosting). There's also Patreon/Liberapay/etc.: https://writefreely.org/support
@stragu Thank you! 😊
@lnxw37a1 Yep, we're keeping things simple right now so we can get the core functionality / smooth installation process nailed down. Then we'll get to photo uploads, comments, etc. :)
WriteFreely lets you self-host a single federated blog or a community of blogs. It's written in Go / #golang, it's lightweight, and runs everywhere -- even on a Raspberry Pi! (We tried 😁)
We just launched v0.1 this weekend, and v0.2 is already coming out early this week. You can try a full demo here: https://pencil.writefree.ly
