I'm looking for some people that would like to start beta testing ENiGMA½'s new ActiviytPub/Mastodon/Fediverse integration support on Xibalba! This new integration allows for interaction between your BBS
I'm way behind the curve here, I need to learn about these different services/protocols/whatever we want to call them :) I'd be interested to see how you're implementing it to better understand what it might take to federate the capability out to other BBS softwares.
ActivityPub and the 'Fediverse' are a lot like FidoNet in a way; A bit scrappy, open protocols, various "kludges", etc.
https://activitypub.rocks/ is a good place to get the gist.
Enig won't (currently) do anyting to get the messages to other boards directly, unless those boards support ActivityPub as well. At some point
I may see if it's possible to bridge some e.g. FTN areas <> AP, but it
may be a bit tricky, I'm not sure. If your board is a member of the Fediverse/ActivityPub in some way, they can communicate though.
- gating AP to FTN somehow
- having some sort of AP mod on a BBS to allow for direct communication
The second here is what interests me from a modding perspective, hell, it could be cool to get something done here for other BBSes. How are you
enig considers *all* non-local messages a 'foreign' concept and was designed to be pluggable. To really get nice integration, there is still work though. You can see the current MR (which has a lot!) here:
