This standard document explains how group federation works in Lemmy and other projects. It can be useful to developers who want to implement a similar federation model.
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;
@nutomic This is huge news! @alex thoughts on this!
It’s for subreddits basically, not the same as Mastodon’s toot:PublicGroup type
@alex the “Circles” in Bonfire are basically groups, yes?
@jawsh @nutomic @alex What’s #Bonfire?
@realcaseyrollins Fediverse server software. Still in BETA. I only recently learned of it. Don’t know much about it.
@jawsh @nutomic @realcaseyrollins @alex Weren’t they going to do some “anti-misinfo” stuff with it?
@Hyolobrika I’m not sure. That wouldn’t surprise me at all tho.
@nutomic @realcaseyrollins @alex
Wonderful to see good movements forward in the spec!
Thank you for your participation in the FEP process. I am really happy to see this finalized, and also that Fediverse Enhancement Proposals is picking up steam to bring more standardization to the Fediverse.
Nice! Really glad that
Announceis solidified as meaning more than just “retweet”… its now the official way that groups push activities to its members.
Here’s hoping that the mastodon team actually pays attention to this when they start their group implemenation
One Mastodon maintainer participated in the discussion, so at least they are aware of it.
