A community dedicated to fediverse news and discussion.
Fediverse is a portmanteau of “federation” and “universe”. It is a common, informal name for a federation of social network servers whose main purpose is microblogging, the sharing of short, public messages.
Getting started on Fediverse;
I’ve heard this opinion before and its pretty frustrating. Wordpress has IndieWeb plugins just like it has an ActivityPub plugin. Most users don’t understand the relevant specs, they just know what they can accomplish and the IndieWeb can accomplish the same thing as ActivityPub. And from a developer perspective, the IndieWeb is way easier to understand than ActivityPub.
Can Mastodon actually subscribe to a static ActivityPub feed?
A lot of blogs are statically generated (it’s cheaper, faster and safer). Ideally, static websites could just generate JSON-LD for ActivityPub in a similar way as how they generate XML for RSS, which would make the transition easier… but last time I checked Mastodon didn’t support that very well, so RSS was still a better fit in many situations since it does not require an active server component. I’d love to be shown otherwise.
No, Commafeed is the new Google Reader.
But article is correct about RSS being awesome. More info sources should utilise it.
@testman @serenity Haven’t heard about Commafeed before, how does it compare with some of the other self hosted RSS readers out there like TTRSS, Miniflux, etc…? Any idea?
I came from TheOldReader, as the service seems to be no longer seriously maintained, and ended up with the commercial InoReader, which is really fabulously good, but crazy expensive in the premium variant, without which there are no filters. Unfortunately.
Nextcloud News I tried, in the development currently unfortunately still a few decades behind. Self-hosted FreshRSS I had on the list, CommaFeed not yet tried. Even though we’re getting off topic here (well, it’s more the origin post I think, which seems pretty jumbled), I’d also be interested in what speaks for/against this service.

pleroma rules mastodon is bloat
Bloat in what way?
I hate to say this but with the development turn that pleroma has taken nowadays it’s not even that much lighter than Mastodon
I would propose GoToSocial :3
It is still faulty on some features though.
I love GoToSocial! I hope it gets finished very very soon
You can use it already and is really stable :3
What! No way :0000
May start self-hosting soon then :)

@serenity Friendica is an even closer comparison - it lets you follow RSS/Atom feeds and add their entries as attachments. There is also an extension to use it as a frontend for your Twitter account.
