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 ;-)
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 !
