Building ActivityPub into Known

ActivityPub is the protocol standard of the Fediverse: a set of interoperable, open source social networking platforms that notably includes Mastodon and It’s the closest we have to a vibrant, distributed social networking ecosystem.

Known has supported Indieweb standards since the beginning, but Fediverse has been notably missing. I think that’s a big omission, but also not something I’ve had bandwidth to fix. I’d love to have more time and space to work on Known, but try as I might, I just don’t.

Today I added a substantial Gitcoin bounty to this work, which will be funded by the Known OpenCollective. My hope is that a developer can help us add this functionality. Today the bounty is funded in USD, but I’d be happy to exchange that for a proof of stake crypto bounty on request.
