Hello folks,

Thanks to the latest release we can now comment, subscribe and participate in lotide instance communities.

For example you can see the videos community of narwhal city here https://wolfballs.com/c/videos@narwhal.city

Got to wait for them to post some stuff. You can see their community at it’s source here

https://narwhal.city/communities/4

Some lotide instances I’ve noticed,

https://narwhal.city

https://lotide.fbxl.net/

https://hoot.goldandblack.xyz/

If you find a community you like on one of those servers, copy the url then go to the communities section here, click all and paste it in the search bar and click search. You’ll then be able to click it and subscribe.

Future post from there will arrive here on wolfballs.

Here’s a table of the current compatibility as far as I know: https://arewefriendsyet.lotide.org/lotide-lemmy.html

Hmm, lotide post won’t show up here yet?

I think we ran the tests, lotide link posts work, but text posts don’t, and image posts don’t. That’s why every post I put up has a link.

Text posts should be working in the current version of Lemmy, but yes that used to be the case

Dang, I have not studied the activity_pub code of lemmy yet. I’ve been meaning to learn how all that works. I’ll be able to help out once I got a handle on it.

I understand the api/diesel/actix all pretty good though.

Looks like it’s a similar issue to https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/2106

lotide sends posts from communities as links, but Lemmy assumes they will be whole objects

Though even if that’s fixed it might still not work, since Lemmy also assumes the announced object will be an activity rather than the object itself
