I really like making software! Specifically stuff that people can directly use to interact with other people. It made sense that I'd aim to revisit the work I had around a social streaming client. I've called it ActivityDesk. The goals for the initial version are as follows:
- seamless authentication to networks like Mastodon, Pleroma and PixelFed
- multi-account support
- full MicroPub and MicroSub support (a desktop reader!)
It's amazing how a short list of items can still result in a lot of work! I've only managed to close out some logic around getting multi account support. You can view the source code on KDE. The objective is to have this keep a window closed on my desktop. Another long term goal is to make the act of testing a valid ActivityPub Client-to-Server implementation of a client to a server. That feature would reduce the number of specific client implementations one would have to provide.
I'll post more updates about it but I'm excited to have this in the wheelhouse with other projects.
