Irwin: Dabbling with ActivityPub

It has been a year since I have blogged about my IndieAuth server Irwin. Prior to that, in Minimum Viable IndieAuth Server, I explained my motivation for starting the project. In the same spirit, I would like an activitypub server as simple to understand as possible. I thought it might be interesting to add the activitypub and webfinger support to an IndieAuth server so I have created an experimental branch ap_wip. An important part of this development has been writing specs. For example, here are my specs for handling the “Move” command, an important Mastodon feature.

I still have about half a dozen items to do before I consider dogfooding this branch but hopefully I can do that soon.
