Hi, everyone I just publish my project Varied (Finally), it still at an early stage, but I wanted to just get it out there and start working on it in the open
Some design and feature goals I have for varied include:
Being Media Agnostic, with Text and Video already mostly finished and audio and images being worked on
Providing as many alternatives as possible to the advertising based business model that most internet platforms run on, those in the Creator economy
Being Mostly Protocol Agnostic but giving higher priority to implementing Activitypub then Matrix before supporting any others
You can find the project here: GitHub - SelectSweet/Varied
Congrats! I look forward to checking it out
Woohooo, congratulations! Great start of the year, and another Rust-based AS/AP project
I wonder about your choice for GPL instead of AGPL, any particular considerations to that?
I chose GPL3 for two reasons, to be compatible with the spritely projects in the future and because i am planing on having a plugin system, from what i understand so far AGPL3 may make those difficult but if my understanding is wrong or the issues can be fixed i am open to moving to the AGPL3 in the future
Great to see another Fediverse project in Rust! From a glance at your code it looks like you havent started implementing Activitypub yet. When you do, I suggest you use my activitypub-federation crate which will save you a lot of work.
