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!

@yourintrinsicself - "Reflections on life, truth, faith, love, introspection, and transformation."

@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"

@triptych - Games, code, and creative work, by @triptych

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).

Here are the full details on our open developer position:

discuss.write.as/t/open-positi

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.

Apply here: write-as.breezy.hr/p/cc7b89733

v0.9.0 included a new bit of information in an instance's NodeInfo: whether or not it has user invites enabled.

You can now see which v0.9+ instances are invite-only vs. completely closed on the Instances page: writefreely.org/instances

We've reached a point where we'd like to start developers to work on the roadmap 💻 :writefreely2:

This would be remote, contract-based work for now, with a chance to go full-time later in the year (assuming all continues going well). You'd be creating free / open source software.

I'll have more details soon, but especially if you're a / developer and want to work on a growing project, I'd love to hear from you!

WriteFreely is free and open source software for starting a minimalist, federated blog — or an entire community. Join our new instance: write.privacytools.io

Got the very basic documentation section of writefreely.org up and running!

writefreely.org/docs/

It pulls everything directly from the #WriteFreely documentation repo: github.com/writefreely/documen

Feedback, bug reports, and pull requests are all welcome! #wfdev

Made a little Go / #golang tool that automatically deletes a @write_as post after someone sees it.

github.com/thebaer/writeas-sel

It’s not really meant for secure, guaranteed self-destructing messages (I mention the many caveats on that page), but hopefully it serves as a good example for building on the API.

Some thoughts this morning -- @remark_as might start out as the simple ability to reply to fediverse posts from @write_as / #WriteFreely.

@switchingsocial Have set up own instance of @write_as #writefreely - excellent lightweight software, runs super smooth and indeed guarantees distraction-free writing 👍 @gytis 😁 @writeas_dev very helpful, make sure to follow them 🤓

If you want to have a Medium-style text-based blog that people can follow on the Fediverse, you might want to try these:

Plume:
joinplu.me

Write Freely
writefreely.org
writefreely.org/instances

You can either join an existing instance, or set up your own.

They federate with ActivityPub-based networks such as Mastodon, Pleroma, Friendica etc. so you can follow their blogs the same way you would follow a person.

#Medium #Blogs #Blogging #ActivityPub #Fediverse

Behind the scenes, this is powered by a little web application that returns release information about a GitHub project: github.com/writefreely/version

Now the Instances page shows whether or not instances are up-to-date 👍
