@nightpool and I had kind of a micro-meeting today and discussed client-to-server applications. We identified two areas of work of use to the AP community:
- “specific” clients like Mastodon’s (microblogging) or eg a “youtube/instagram/etc” type client. @nightpool started a thread about this
- “General purpose” C2S clients which can be pluggable to understand new activity / object types. There’s general interest in this, but how to dispatch different UI patterns for both composing / rendering / interacting with those different types? In reality, whoever ends up making one that becomes reasonably popular will realistically be in effect developing those “guidelines” in practice of how to do this route.
