Opting for IndieAuth instead of Silo-Based Options
As I mentioned in https://v2.jacky.wtf/post/opt-for-indieauth, I'm down to help people with F/LOSS projects (optimally for the Fediverse/IndieWeb/general public) to add #IndieAuth support (both consumer and provider) for their projects. The easiest way for us to grow our projects is to work together!
@jalcine This right here.
@jalcine this would also be very good for people using multiple instances, dont have to make new accounts each time, which is something i know a lot of people hate
@norikawa bingo bingo!
@jalcine I can't agree with this more...
use your own directories... They shouldn't own your identities.
@sean It's what it _should_ be for. But every time I looked into it, it looked kinda hard to do. IndieAuth is a bit simpler since it only handles the authentication dance
@sean That could just use the OAuth2 dance they provide. I know that Mastodon doesn't show its endpoints as part of its ActivityPub profile (I looked) but if Pleroma does then you got a good target (and something that fleshes out the spec)
That's exactly the kind of thing I'd like to look at hosting! Thank you for the suggestion!
@jalcine Yes, that's where I found Selfauth! 😊
I like and endorse what this article says.
The bit at the bottom about how to reply though is just confusing. I have no idea what my "response URI" is?
Here's hoping replying from Mastodon does something useful...
@Blort I can definitely make that more clear. A response URI would be the actual HTTP link to your reply - like what I've replied to here.
Mastodon doesn't support Webmentions so I wouldn't get this on my site - I'd have to send it to my site manually
Social is the primary social media platform for the forth coming fourth version of Play Vicious, a new initiative built to bring attention to the plethora of creative acts that don't get the shine they deserve.
