Has anyone tried plume and writefreely?
#
fr33domlover
I'm wondering how they compare
#
fr33domlover
So far plume feels more socially connected, writefreely more like isolated blogs, otoh I guess writefreely is ahead in stability / features?

fr33domlover: that's basically correct. writefreely only uses AP for outbox. every incoming activity is pretty much discarded, so no comments, no like notifications, etc
#
fr33domlover
trwnh, you can't get comments on your blog? :-/
#
fr33domlover
Hmmm weird, the UI really has no comments
#
fr33domlover
I've seen this before, but I was sure there was a way to comment
#
fr33domlover
I mean, isn't that a super basic feature of blogs that aren't plain statis sites?
#
fr33domlover
will use plume then
#

iirc writefreely doesn't support comments or they can be disabled
#
trwnh
writefreely is an anti-social distraction-free blogging platform. activitypub is only a serialization format, it's not used for anything else except to generate a feed
#
trwnh
at least, i think they want to do all the feed reader and social stuff in read.as (readfreely?)
#
trwnh
or read.write.as
#
trwnh
whatever it's called

I think Matt is working on remark.as which is the commenting part of it
#

Sometimes I'm impressed with how sharp some people are with monetizing the stuff they make
#
fr33domlover
Matt's stuff seems to be free software, which anyone can install, but he still offers support and hosting and it seems there's no lack of ways to make things commercial

I never think of such things when I write code :P
