I should make a "Poor man's Mastodon" that's just a dumb implementation of ActivityPub as a CGI script.
@leo I once implemented WebFinger in an implementation I was trying to make a year or so back. I think I had a few other things federating, but posts didn't work so it was useless.
@Shuga Yeah I feel like webfinger is pretty easy to implement. But for the rest of ActivityPub you sometimes end up having to do things the Mastodon way due to its popularity.
@leo Yep. There are some good ActivityPub libraries (most notably the Go one from what I hear), but for full-on sites, forking something like Mastodon or Plemora is a lot easier.
