Still no documentation and not anywhere close to done, but my #ActivityPub #PHP library is open source at github.com/pterotype-project/a.

My goal is to provide a well-tested, flexible library that handles the complicated parts of ActivityPub (JSON-LD, persistence, addressing, etc.) in a way that can be plugged into an existing PHP codebase with no hassle. That'll help me refactor #Pterotype, and will also make it easy for other developers to make developers to make plugins for Joomla, Drupal, etc.

@jdormit One of my goals for the comming years, not sure whether it could be 2019 or not, depends on how quickly I catch onto C#, but I want to make a library for .NET for ActivityPub first, because it's simpler, and then Zot. second. Seems that all of the other frameworks are covered. Fact that .NET folks are left out's been driving me nuts for a while now.

@cambridgeport90
For sure, make it happen! The more platforms we get on the network the better it gets.

@jdormit Is it even possible, though? I think if it were, then wouldn't someone have done it already? DNN community sorta laughed at me in an odd way when I mentioned it to them. Acted like they didn't have a clue what I was talking about. I mean, the new standards of ActivityPub, Webmention, and so on can't be that new, can they? Then again, there's that whole misconception that anything written for the .NET Framework isn't open source because the underlying OS is not open source. That definition is too narrow for me.

@cambridgeport90 @jdormit If y'all know of other generic/extensible ActivityPub libraries in static language libraries please let me know. I am putting together a talk and want to be sure I have an accurate picture of the landscape, and I am not sure how up to date mayel's list of decentralized AP-based apps is.

@cj
Sounds interesting, will the talk be available online?

@cambridgeport90

@jdormit If so, I'm going to definitely want to listen, and then share with some people in our community who need to learn.
