Hey Mastodons, I hear you like open source and federation, so I'd like to tell you about https://gettogether.community/ an open source, federated(*) event planning service similar to Meetup
It's free to use, and while it's still very early development it is live! Try it yourself, share it with your friends, start a team ahd have a Get Together! #gettogether
FWIW, I wouldn't mind GetTogether being the first to implement Events, or to also publish Places, as long as somebody else does does the implementation :)
federated event plattform Show more
you might be also intrested then to check out hubzilla.
It's a federated social network that has events and CalDav implemented.
hubzilla also federates with ActivityPub, Ostatus, diaspora, friendica.
I've made here a test event, incl a short screen record how event creation looks like:
also indyweb has a federated event function.
Not aware of any widely used AP implementations that use locations, events, etc. but I think Nextcloud@mastodon.xyz is heading in that direction.
Also I think objects can be (or contain) multiple types so an event could also be a note which Mastodon could munch on making for interesting ideas to spread announcements? My AP knowledge is limited though.
@cwebber is a busy person but a good person to bounce ideas off...
@mhall119 I suggest using ActivityPub for federation. There's no other platform that has implemented events/places in AP yet but it doesn't mean they won't appear, and other apps like Mastodon could add support or semi-support for displaying the data (like how PeerTube/Mastodon integration works).
Very interesting. I just registerred a #gettogether account. (First tried with Chrome for Android, but failed with a looong db debugging error message. Then registered successfully with #Vivaldibrowser on the #Linux laptop.)
Will schedule a #MOMOCzone event tomorrow, perhaps even with www.gettogether.community as Meetup.com competitor among the main topics :-)
@LeeteqXV Feedback is welcome, any features you want to see added please file an Issue on GitHub for me: https://github.com/GetTogetherComm/GetTogether/issues
It happened when trying to create the team initially. Aborted and registered on the laptop instead.
Right. I actually had no cities to choose from in that dropdown menu, and did not notice/see the manual fill-in city field beside or under it before I switched to the computer/larger screen, so I submitted the form without a city when it crashed.
Generalistic and moderated instance.
Everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
