Recently, I was thinking about adding a new feature to microblog.pub: the possibility to pull/subscribe to a RSS/JSON feed and create Article activities when a new post is published.
On the "public" website, it would show up as a link to the original post (like Mastodon is doing), but the AP object would contain the full post.
This way, your blog (#IndieWeb powered of course) would be able to fetch the replies/likes/shares collection of the Article and display it.
@donblanco Hey! Thanks for wanting to try it out. It's because the project is not production ready, it's still in early development (and it's actually a lot of work to keep this instance working with all my breaking changes :p).
I would recommend waiting for a first release (which is not that far away), but I will try to start updating the README on how to get started.
The design/UI is optimized for small notes, and no characters limit.
And I will fill an issue, as for now you can only upload 1 attachment :p But same here,no limit (but then I don't know how it will display on Mastodon, like if only the first x images will be displayed).
I hope I will be able to release a "v1" in September, I think it will stay pretty simple, as explained on the project README (https://github.com/tsileo/microblog.pub).
For Docker, it's not a requirement, it's just that the setup is a little complex so it greatly simplifies things. I have to update the documentation on deploying, but as of right now, I would not advise to run an instance as it's still too buggy.
A self-hosted, single-user, ActivityPub powered microblog. - tsileo/microblog.pubGitHub
Fast, secure and up-to-date instance, welcoming everyone around the world....Mastodon hosted on mstdn.io
microblog.pub is now generating and caching thumbnails for all attachments/actor icons.
Now the website is blazing fast \o/.
Just added counters in the header to display the number of notes/followers/following!
