Comments on Activity Pub Support

Activity Pub Support

−3

With Stack Exchange's apparent move towards accepting generative AI in the answers, people might be looking for alternatives. I, personally, recommend Codidact to people regularly.

I tried to determine if ActivityPub was supported, but didn't find anything in the roadmap or issues on Github. I'm wondering if adding ActivityPub support would be viable? It would be great if Codidact were one of the top Fediverse choices for StackExchange alternatives.

It seems to me that adding Fediverse support might draw in more developer support as well.

I'm not certain whether federation fits with the community goals or not, but wanted to broach the topic.

Most of what I know about ActivityPub is in the context of Mastodon, which I (like millions of others) really only became aware of late last year. I know there's a lot more to the Fediverse than Mastodon. Could you say more about how a platform like Codidact could fit into that model? What does federation mean, in the context of Q&A communities? Thanks.
