List of #ActivityPub projects in development (October update) 

Hi, anyone interested in working on a federated alternative to TripAdvisor (traveler and tourism information, reviews, chat, travel album, ...) ?

@nico it would be AMAZING to have such open-source project available and i would love to contribute but i'm affraid i don't have any free spare time left for this. The only thing i could eventually help with is a frontend development (Vue.js)

@switchingsocial
what about GangGo, Socialhome, Rustodon, Misskey and @pfefferle plugin for WordPress?

@switching.social FWIW, I do hope that Osada gets a mention. You are doing the Federation and Fediverse and those that find their way here a great service. While Osada may not have oodles of documentation, I've found it to be the most intuitive user interface when I put my Facebook Refugee hat on. (And I'm on Diaspora, Friendica, Hubzilla, Mastodon, and Pixelfed for comparison.)

If I had more days in my week, I would gladly donate my time to document the heck out of it. I do plan to make it my destination recommendation for my friends looking to leave FB. And I plan to be there to walk them through the transition. I hope that more Fediversians check it out.

@alysonsee

I'm happy to take a look at it :) Is there an onboarding site for Osada, or a website designed for non-technical people, or an example instance?

(I could only find the git.)

@switching.social

If you want something like "{Silo} Alternative" then what I can personally think of is:

Osada is a Facebook-like social-network which can communicate with Twitter-like platforms (Misskey, Pleroma, GNUsocial), follow Instagram-like photo sites (Pixelfed, afora(?)), connect with YouTube-like software (PeerTube), and any services on ActivityPub (Friendica, Hubzilla, Socialhome, WriteAs), while giving YOU the power to move to any Osada servers virtually without losing anything.



There isn't a feature that Osada and Hubzilla does not have. Groups, Pages, Status updates, commenting, photo and video upload, file uploading, photo albums, likes (and dislikes), emoji, Android app (Hubzilla has one), follow not add, add/connect, block, filter, profile/page header, avatar, what else? Privacy controls (much better than Facebook). Anything else an "average user" and "non-techie" are using that weren't mentioned?

Advertisements? Not an average user.
Meta tags to link websites with a profiile or page? Not a non-techie user
Mega moderators? Any Fediverse software and instance hired an outsource to be mega moderators?

For me, it isn't about techie and non-techie. It's about value. "What's in it for me?" We have a very good ratio of techie and non-techie already, in fact, ever since the days of Laconica and Mistpark (2008? I can't recall).

I know a lot of techie and non-techie who either doesn't want to give the Fediverse a try or simply abandoned the Fediverse and went back. The top reason was always value. Not the documentation or lack thereof. Not because it's simple enough to understand (it's an insult to some). Not because of features (although it is obviously a factor). Not even because of anonymity, privacy, and security. (Yes, UI is also a factor here.)

It's value. "What's in it for me?"

Each person have a different criteria, in other words, we can't sum it up to "techie" and "non-techie". This was one reason why I shutdown my public Friendica instance back in 2011/2012, I was doing it wrong, I have to go back to the drawing board. I even disappeared from the Fediverse after that in my quest to understand why people are sticking to Facebook (in particular). It is indeed the value.

How I would rewrite it:

Osada is a social-network—similar to yet different from Facebook—which can talk to your family and friends in a Twitter-like platform like Misskey and Pleroma, follow great artists and photographers from Instagram-type services running Pixelfed or Afora(?), or even watch the latest cat video or vlogger episode from a PeerTube-powered video hosting, with just one Osada account forever.

@Mike Macgirvin Yep, I didn't mean it in that way. :) I only mentioned both since these two are largely ignored and dismissed. But nah, I didn't mean the two are the same. :)

@switchingsocial Thank you for the list. But it is only about servers, communicating with each other using #ActivityPub protocol.
From a Client application's (and its users) point of view it is even more interesting to know, which of projects communicate with its users/with client applications via #ActivityPub. Client to Server "layer" of ActivityPub allows for a User to have single view on all social networks ("projects"), which is much more powerful...
