Episode 136 of Thinking Elixir. The “fediverse” has become a hot topic of late. Fortunately, Mayel de Boniol joined to explain what federated means, what ActivityPub is, and more. Mayel is more than just knowledgeable in this area, he created Bonfire Networks as well! It’s written in Elixir and is a framework people can use to build their own federated servers to meet their specific needs, be that for tweet-like messages, meetup coordination, collaborative task lists or your own custom extensions. Being written in Elixir and OpenSource, he explains a number of libraries that can help those of us not even building a social app at all!
