#ActivityPub support on Write.as was just the first part of what I wanted to create for the #fediverse Next, I wanted a place to read everything in peace.
Here's just the start of that second part: https://Read.as, built from scratch to be #SelfHosted and #FOSS.
Soon you'll be able to create an account on the Read.as instance, and follow platforms like #Plume and #WriteAs that federate long-form articles — for now it just needs to be run locally.
@write_as Are you planning to support RSS/Atom feeds too?
@dhasenan Absolutely. The goal is to have a reading platform that works with several open protocols
So, if we are doing the 'like existing services, but federated' idea, read.as would be similar to Feedly. Correct?
@RussSharek Bingo. And besides federation, it'll be a little different by letting you curate posts on a public profile (for those who want to).
That is a killer feature.
@RussSharek Glad you think so :) I thought it'd be interesting, and useful in a bunch of new ways. @dhasenan
In addition to curating a feed. It might also be worthwhile to be able to curate a list of links, like pinboard.in
@RussSharek Great point! I'm sure that could all be done on top of ActivityStreams / ActivityPub too @dhasenan
This is an Esperanto-speaking instance, so it goes without saying that users are expected to toot in Esperanto. There are a million other instances to create your account if you intend to toot in English or any other language.
