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
@mhall119 It's a cool idea but also looks like it needs a LOT more basic development before release into the wild. Keep us posted as it comes together though! The more it can be integrated to Mastodon, the better.
@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).
@mhall119 I just tried creating a group and got a Python stack trace due to "missing country code." But there were no countries available to put into the (presumably) country code dropdown.
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.
@LeeteqXV Ah, ok, that's been fixed. It'll now warn you if you submit without a city selected and send you back to the form, rather than crashing :)
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.
@mhall119 too sad... I can not create my team based in Switzerland, after typing the country... the city list is empty and I can't proceed further 😟
@mhall119 nevermind! I did not understand I could directly type the city name here... all good now :)
Thanks for sharing, this is awesome.
