|12:40:09||Emmanuel||just found out about lemmy, love the idea|
|12:40:21||Emmanuel||is there currently a way to get an rss of my user feed?|
|12:40:30||Emmanuel||that would be the only way I actually use the site in the long term|
|14:05:44||PopeRigby||No. You can open an issue for it https://github.com/dessalines/lemmy|
Dessalines: et al: would we be amenable to limiting the use of wildcard imports? Kinda seems like diesel's macro-derived DSLs lean on wildcard imports, but IMO they should be avoided elsewhere.
If so I'm happy to put up a PR 👍️
|18:28:12||pingveno||Emmanuel: There's an open issue for RSS/Atom feeds that I had taken over a while ago, but I had to abandon work on it due to personal time constraints.|
|18:28:54||pingveno||Ah, looks like you found it.|
|19:12:06||Emmanuel||Yes, hopefully someone can take it up. I might if I have time.|
|19:12:18||Emmanuel||It's about time I contribute to something|
In reply to @salacious-balloon:matrix.orgSure thing.

|04:53:52||dansup joined the room.|
|04:54:22||dansup||Dessalines: does lemmy federate? If so what Accept header is required?|
|04:55:27||dansup||also what activitystream verbs does lemmy use?|
|05:12:13||mister.monster||@dansup:matrix.org: it doesn't federate yet, we are looking for people more familiar with AP to help with that to speed it along. The API spec is written but not implemented.|
|05:13:57||dansup||I might be able to help discuss it, I know AP but not Rust|
|05:15:02||dansup||Pixelfed took a while to federate, so I can understand not rushing into it and pissing off other implementations|
|05:16:03||dansup||I'm very interested to see how lemmy handles federation, its possible that it could federate with Pixelfed under the right conditions|
|05:17:09||mister.monster||Yeah I think though that the community interested in Lemmy are really waiting for federation. Here's the AP spec https://github.com/dessalines/lemmy/blob/master/docs/apub_api_outline.md if you want to give it a look and tell us what you think|
|05:18:03||mister.monster||I haven't really thought about federating with PixelFed considering that it is a link aggregator centered around communities rather than users it is going to be a little more work than initially getting Lemmy instances to federate with each other|
|05:21:28||dansup||it would take some work on the pixelfed side, I was thinking of allowing users to follow lemmy users and groups|
|05:21:46||dansup||this would require lemmy to attach the media to the objects|
|05:22:16||dansup||does lemmy collect any information on links, does it detect imgur posts for instance?|
|05:23:24||mister.monster||I am unsure but I know that it detects media type and embeds it as previews/thumbnails I'm the web ui.|
|05:24:13||mister.monster||I know there was talk a while back about detecting pixelfed media links when they're posted on Lemmy|
|05:29:51||dansup||you can now append .json to a pixelfed post to get the AP object, https://pixelfed.social/p/dansup/75783646421848064.json|
|05:30:15||dansup||also we use /.well-known/nodeinfo, so discovery should be easier|
|05:30:45||dansup||that same object is also available at the permalink url with the right Accept header|

In reply to @dansup:matrix.orgNot yet, AP is still in dev but ya I could use some help from anyone who knows a good amount about it... Oh ya I see someone linked the work I did on what vocab lemmy is gonna use.
In reply to @dansup:matrix.orgAt least initially, the AP is going to focus on following federated communities, rather than users, but users will pry follow at some point, which would be pixelfed compatible.
In reply to @dansup:matrix.orgThe back end isn't doing any analysis of the links yet, I know that AP has vocab for different types of objects, but rn at least its just treating everything like a url / link.
