Nice to see a blogpost on the Mastodon blog about implementing a basic ActivityPub server https://blog.joinmastodon.org/2018/06/how-to-implement-a-basic-activitypub-server/
(Though technically webfinger isn't needed for activitypub, but it is for mastodon interop!)
@mariusor Thanks for the reply ! I tried to add inbox, outbox as requested by AP (but not by mastodon afaik), no luck with #mastodon, although #pleroma seems to see the actor (but cannot display its profile)
It'd be nice to have a detailed reqs documents somewhere for mastodon, because I'm not fan of reading all the source code ;-)
@cerisara anyway, cwebber is the wrong person to ask about mastodon. Check the author of the original article.
OK, it's working, it was indeed the MIME type of webfinger that needed to be application/json. Although I can't directly write the actor file URI as I thought I could, but I have to search for name@domain.
Thanks for your help !
I'm actually going to hire an engineer to develop a "scientific-resource oriented" AP server. Any hint greatly appreciated. Thanks !
