    Not only is it exciting that they’re adding ActivityPub support, but its great that they’re basing their implementation off of Lemmy. Up til now, most implementations have been from scratch and implement federation after the project has gotten up and running and then do federation testing. That leads to different assumptions about models/flows and inconsistencies and hacks to get it working. Working off of another implementation’s federation guide will mean less hacks but still leave room for impl-specific features and workflows.

    @cypherpunks I see some acid comments there, but I’m really glad to see this happening! I’m definitely not up to writing something like this from scratch, but it’s not outside the realm of possibility that I could contribute improvements later.

    Being able to follow my own discourse instances from mastodon and boost then directly will be an awesome start. And there’s lots of room to grow the integration over time.

    What’s the point then?

    @cypherpunks it’s pretty limited, but that’s logical when the aim is to get people into the garden. I expect this to be a fairly common thing moving forward.

    Medium is taking more of a hybrid tack, but I could see Tumblr moving this direction when they fully announce their plans.

    (I’m not saying it’s bad ~ websites gotta traffic or there’s no point)

    Pretty cool. It will take a while for it to be adopted though as I assume most forums won’t add it if it’s not default but perhaps in the future.

    Note that Support for incoming content (e.g. posts on Mastodon etc being imported into Discourse) is intentionally excluded. It will be possible to add this in a later version.

    Support for following users (as opposed to categories) is also intentionally excluded.

    Sees an excerpt of the first post of all FDC topics (posted after they subscribe) in their Mastodon feed, each with a link back to the associated topic, e.g. “Discuss on our forum”.

    Any action related to the post in Mastodon does not appear in Discourse.

    Any action related to the post in Discourse does not appear in Mastodon.

    Oh. So it’s Embrace, Extend, and Extinguish.

    No thanks.
