Wow, the demonstration has some really great improvements!
The new page tries to reach “implementers” and “end users”, so we could split the guide in 2 parts, the introduction, terminology, why and some resources are for “end-users” and we can make the rest for “implementers” and in the beginning link the userguide.
I’d love to contribute to that. I’ll start by dividing up what I’ve drafted and filling in some additional pieces. I might try three parts: a general intro for everyone, a section for end users, and a section for implementers. I’ll draw on your and others’ suggestions, including those at Discussing the evolution of the activitypub.rocks site.
If you want you can also make the post a wiki (keep a copy of the original then). This would make the guid directly editable for everyone.
I looked for a way to post a wiki but didn’t find it. Can you point me in the right direction? Thx!
@Sebastian thx! I’ve done a first pass at redrafting as three guides. I’ve also pulled out most of what was in the section “Potential models and building blocks”. Instead I’ve pointed to some places to discover ActivityPub implementations and I’ll open an issue on Fediverse.Party to add in the projects I’d compiled that aren’t there already.
I’d like to start figuring out some next steps. If this is potential content for the draft activitypub.rocks improvements, how do we get from here to there? Maybe we need a documentation team? Maybe there is one already? In any case, I’d be happy to participate.
We’re hitting the length limit for posts, so I’ll add here a stub of a last section of the implementers’ guide on how to improve ActivityPub as suggested earlier by @Sebastian:
Aided by a culture of collaboration among Fediverse advocates and participants, there is ongoing work to improve both the ActivityPub specification and interoperability among different ActivityPub implementations. Initiatives like FediConf, Feneas, and the ActivityPub forum on Activitypub.Rocks are great places to connect with other implementers and help move things forward.
@nedjo: I’ve gone ahead and upped the post length limit, so at least until we find a better place for it we can continue on with posting here. I think we should also split a couple of these sections out into their own threads, like “Introduction to Activitypub” and “Guide for new Activitypub users”—would you mind making new threads for these? I think that would make this post a lot more navigable.
