Hey developers & ActivityPub enthusiasts!
@GetTogetherComm is a free open alternative to MeetUp.com.
The lead developer needs help with implementing federation, either coding or better documentation about ActivityPub.
There's an open issue for it here:
There's been discussion but no code contributions yet.
Can you help?
(It would be *so* cool to get this kind of service federated, imagine every town having its own instance )
One year ago today, the first commit of GetTogether was made. Over the past year we've grown to serve 150+ teams and 400+ events!
Come join the https://GetTogether.Community today!
I'm not generally a fan of giant patches, but we landed a 2,100 line PR that makes it fully translatable! You can help make it available in your language here:
It's Black Friday! Sign up today and get FREE event hosting! Or tomorrow. Or any day, really.
That's because your free hosting is covered by our generous patrons who keep this service online and available to everyone. Thanks to everyone who continues!
The intent was always to support federation, and there is some very basic event federation already using simple JSON feeds.
Fully ActivityPub support (needed to interoperate with Mastodon) is more complicated, and while the data export is working, we need contributors to help with the pub/sub part of the protocol.
There's an open issue for it here: https://github.com/GetTogetherComm/GetTogether/issues/60

It looks like GetTogether is working towards implementing ActivityPub, which could make it a great meetup app for the fediverse.
Great to see the GNOME 3.30 release party in Brno using GetTogether.Community! https://gettogether.community/events/163/gnome-330-release-party-in-brno/ #gettogether

Hey world! I just supported Fosstodon on @Patreon. Help your instance with hosting costs by becoming a patron too. https://t.co/lYfLVoTqUx
Our admin, @mike had a great idea - to open up the Fosstodon Hub to our users, so they can contribute blog posts.
Maybe you want to talk about a project you're interested in, or something you're working on, or maybe just tell people why you use FOSS in a more long-form fashion.
Think of it kinda like a mini-medium for Fosstodon users.
This post is to gauge interest before we start developing something. Would anyone be interested in contributing to, or consuming, such content?
