Here's a thought. One in every 320 Germans took part in this march, and the BBC are right - that's impressive. One in every 50 Scots took part in . Isn't that more impressive?

ActivityPub is coming to the develop branch of Friendica

Hello everyone,
ActivityPub is coming to the develop branch of Friendica. Attention! Things can break!

Pull request: github.com/friendica/friendicaโ€ฆ

If you are on develop (2018.12-dev) be warned - there is no way back because there is also a database structure update coming with this update and e.g. your Mastodon contacts will be converted from OStatus to AP contacts. If you don't like testing the new protocol don't update your Friendica develop version in the next days.

There is another issue with the composer right now. We are hosting one of the necessary libraries for ActivityPub on git.friendi.ca. If your server is running an obsolete version of GnuTLS there might be a TLS handshake issue when invoking the 'composer install' command. When you are using OpenSSL or a recent version of GnuTLS everything should be fine. We are trying to fix this soon. But again - be warned - things can break!

Current state of the AP implementation according to @Michael Vogel :
It is working fine here since several days. I'm getting no notices or errors and messages are arriving and can be send.
The next steps I'm planning are the transmitting of account deletions. After this all basic functions are implemented - except for the announces.
The next steps (...) will be more complicated. I want to enhance the worker, so that it can replace the queue completely. I need this for AP, but I think that all delivery processes can benefit from it.

Summary:

ActivityPub is coming to Friendica's develop branch. Things can break! If you don't like testing - don't update until the rough edges are ironed out and the implementation is complete.

Thanks to everyone involved to make this happen! Especially to @Michael Vogel Great job! ๐Ÿ˜€
Have fun testing the new and shiny ActivityPub protocol in Friendica 2018.12-dev.

Kind regards,
Steffen

Hello Scotland! I am happy to report partly cloudy conditions and the sun shining in Edinburgh. After the international ritual of Abasement Before The Powers Of Immigration and the Song of Abject Sorrow Of Security we are now going through the Purification of Car Rental Purgatory. And then off to even brighter pastures: past Inverness to Dornoch. ๐Ÿด โ›ณ๏ธ

Hey, #MacFediverse.. do you have any suggestions for Scottish/Scots/Gร idhlig children's rhymes or songs that I can play/sing to my baby daughter?

I rediscovered a few over the last few days that jogged some long forgotten memories and would like to expand our repertiore!

Versions not necessarily sung by a lead soprano from a parish would be appreciated.

We've spent a lot of time talking about the 'Canada option' and the 'Norway option' for , but we know neither is achievable. It's time to talk about the Brexits we can achieve - the Syria option and the South Sudan option

I haven't had a TV license for 4 years.. don't need it, I don't watch or record live TV and won't use iplayer because the BBC don't even pretend to be impartial non-propagandists any more.. not that they ever did it well through the eyes of the observant.. or vaguely awake..

..regardless, enjoying a whisky and watching immediate post-brexit 'mock the week' on netflix and laughing my ass off. Thank fuck that comedy is largely left wing or there might appear to be no hope at all.

The 11th of September is Catalonia's national day (Diada Nacional de Catalunya).

I wish everyone in #Catalonia a peaceful and joyous day.

The #EU Parliament votes on the Copyright Directive, including Articles 11 & 13, are due this Wednesday. If the EU were to vote for 11 & 13 in their original forms, it would have a chilling effect on political discourse, curtail freedom of speech & endanger the #Fediverse .

If you live in the EU (that still includes the UK) get in touch with your MEPs and say to them you oppose 11 & 13. Include your name & address to prove you are a constituent.

OK, all but one of the MEPs for Scotland emailed regarding the European Copyright Directive.

I can't bring myself to even name the last one never mind try and converse with him..

The vote on the European Copyright Directive is on WEDNESDAY. Here's why it matters, and why (if you haven't already done so) you should write to your MEPs TONIGHT:

Any recommendations for getting started with contributing to an open source project? Should I just browse the issues and see what I might be able to fix?

Glorious day for a walk... Sunny, a nice breeze, perfect. Took the wee ones up into the hills for geocaching and a picnic lunch :)

I am stupidly lucky to live and work in such stunning surroundings.
