Trying out (selfhosted instance).

It appears Plume takes the title and makes it the URL slug, spaces included.

But over activitypub federation, the spaces break the URLs! Is this real or am I stupid?

Writefreely is perhaps too minimalistic, Plume messes up URLs, Ghost and Grav don't have activitypub plugins...

Is wordpress truly the only fully-featured activitypub-compatible blogging platform?

@jle didn't know about this project, but it looks very much like what I need!

(Looking at the code repo URL, I'm assuming this is your project? 😀 If so, congrats, looks really nice at first glance!)

@yarmo Yes it is. I'm using it myself for my blog and website, as well as a diary. If you have any questions or requests, feel free to ask! 😊

@jle sorry to bother again. I tried making a post (with published state) but noticed that Mastodon still thinks there are no posts. It reads the blog description so activitypub is working! Just no posts.

Do posts need something special to federate?

@yarmo Do you follow your blog? And does searching for the post URL on Mastodon work?

@jle you're a genius, following the account and then publishing did the trick.

Then I think I'm there, ready to use it. You made IMO the most complete low-level blogging platform without it being wordpress/ghost/etc.

Big plans for goblog? Do you accept donations?

@yarmo

Thank you!

My current plan is to improve unit testing, to make 90% sure I don't break anything. And apart from that, I always somehow find something that can still be improved, or that would still be useful as a feature.

I don't actively ask for donations, because I have a well paying job. But I have PayPal: jlel.se/donate

Do you want to share your blog with me or is it private?

Follow

@jle sounds like a good plan!

Good to hear you have good job. Given that I am currently living off donations for my FOSS project, I'll hold my donations until I'm financially more stable.

Blog address coming in DM, private just for the next few days, then go public
