@ted I could also use help from somebody who is familiar with the ActivityPub/ActivityStream protocols already, rather than trying to learn them while I'm implementing them. For now I have a simple JSON feed and a script to pull from it.
federated event plattform
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...
Everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct! Thank you. Mastodon.cloud is maintained by Sujitech, LLC.
