Bridgy Fed status update

Hi all! I finally got another big bit of Bridgy Fed interop working earlier today: bridging Bluesky replies, likes, and reposts into the fediverse. (Only the Bluesky federation sandbox, not real users, since federation is still months away.)

Here are example screenshots:

Lots more bug fixes, cleanup, and testing to do, but it’s nice to get this far.

Beyond development I’m now also starting to ramp up a bit of outreach. The IndieWeb and Bluesky communities are supportive, and the fediverse admins and community representatives I’ve approached so far have been generally positive, but I need to talk to more people there. Now is the right time, when I still have months to hear and incorporate feedback before Bluesky federates and I’m able to ship Bridgy Fed’s Bluesky support.

Until next time!

  1. Ryan I am gonna dump this link into Fediverse Developers Network General the next time “something something ATP bad” comes up

  2. Another brief Bridgy Fed progress report: first pass at Bluesky support is feature complete! All basic interactions – user discovery, following, posts, replies, likes, reposts…

  3. @snarfed.org@fed.brid.gy

    Yes, this is positive. What I want specifically is this:

    My AP posts to also show up over there on AT(This should be opt-in because a lot of other people do not want to be proxied, but I’d wanna give it a try at least.)People can post replies to my AP posts from there and I can reply back and forth in a convoI can block individuals who behave badly or turn off the whole bridge if it’s too many

    This is similar to how I am on OFTC normally but Matrix people can reach me at the bridge on @_oftc_sandra:matrix.org and those comments show up over on my OFTC account and I don’t even have to notice they’re on Matrix.

    I’m not in a hurry to start following people who are on AT πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ even though that might be fun down the line.

    I’m scared AT will be way more toxic and twitterlike since they deliberately are designing for an algo-driven world/global timeline which is the opposite of the bubble-coziness we have here on Fedi.
