I have to admit lately I’ve not taken the time to check out other people’s libraries properly. I’m sure we can benefit a lot from sharing our knowledge and code. With that in mind I thought I’d put out feelers for settling on a shared Webfinger implementation - whether that be an existing one or something we come up with. If nothing else this exercise could get us talking with each other more, which is no bad thing.
I picked webfinger because it’s not core ActivityPub and it has potential use for other authors too - plus a higher chance of an existing implementation we can use/adapt.
I wonder if the other node project authors would like to tell everyone a little about their implementation, whether it’s a dependency or home brewed?
In the case of my library, I’ve written a fairly naïve implementation that does little more than look up an actor and return the most basic json template with a link to their profile.
