An overview of BookWyrm, a federated social reading app designed as an alternative to GoodReads.

An overview of a new federated GoodReads alternative, powered by ActivityPub. It’s awesome, and I’m really excited about it!

Giving this a thrash seems worthy!

Yeah, I was just thinking about this! It would be amazing to see BookWyrm integration on a libre reading device.

Did you try self-hosting it?

Not yet, but mainly because I prefer a non-docker environment and kind of need to consolidate a bunch of things on my server first. 😅

Note: There has been fedi discussion about the anti-capitalist license of the project making it not open-source. This is the reason that the FedeProxy project will not reuse ActivityPub code from the project.

I am hoping a fork of this could become a valuable IMDb alternative, too!

(actually, I would love it and use it even more)

Same here but for music (though happy to see the dev progress it as they can)

As for a database, https://www.themoviedb.org/ fits!? https://www.trakt.tv/ for scrobbling & collecting as they do it better and one of the various trakt-apps for mobile - I prefer https://www.moviebase.app/ which is awesome. A noncommercial replacement for Trakt would be awesome as they do not really listen to their customers. But as long as they provide their good API, I’m fine with it.
