I just found out this wasn’t working myself.

  3. yes! great idea. thanks for filing!

    (i assume you’ve looked at https://fed.brid.gy/ ? it’s another good approach, but not for the faint of heart.)

    when i first implemented mastodon, i tried pixelfed, and it wasn’t quite compatible enough, so i detect and block it explicitly: https://github.com/snarfed/oauth-dropins/commit/8b8405aa0c5ae14d11eade3f16b6c5535e51fd52 . if it’s more compatible now, it might be as easy as removing that block and trying again!

    any interest in trying? i’m happy to help you get the dev environment set up!

  5. Thanks for the info. I try to get GAE up and running on my local MacBook and see what I can achieve. But I’m honest, I’m just at the beginning for now 😀
    For example, I still don’t know why your answer to my Issue isn’t sent back to my webmention endpoint. Brid.gy says “no webmention targets”. (Not a topic of the current issue, so maybe in IRC/Slack).

  7. huh. thanks for reporting, and sorry for the trouble! that may indeed be a bug. i’ll file a new issue for it.

  9. note to myself: my pixelfed account, mostly just for testing this, is https://piconic.co/snarfed .

  11. current status: debugging pixelfed’s oauth. i’ve gotten through to requesting the access token, but pixelfed 400s that request with The authorization grant type is not supported by the authorization server. (i’m passing grant_type=authorization_code.) not sure which other grant type i’d use. i’ll ask them.

  13. Looks like much of the work is done in https://github.com/snarfed/bridgy/commit/bd900cf6436e221eb36e6179b163de13720fcd07 – is this considered ready for production yet?

  15. you’re right! the bridgy work is largely done, in that commit. deploying to production is currently blocked on a handful of pixelfed bugs that affect both backfeed and publish. fortunately @dansup et al have usually been quick to respond to these, so i’m optimistic those will get fixed pretty soon.

  17. Not a problem and thanks for the status update. Really do appreciate all that you do!

  19. interesting news:

    [dansup] After some thought, I’ve decided to add Webmention support to Pixelfed, users will be able to opt out)

    [snarfed] dansup++ webmention support in pixelfed! exciting! i assume you just mean directly, ie receiving and sending with links to/from posts? not bridgy-style backfeed for posts that are syndicated from people’s web sites?

  21. Pixelfed evolved over the last year. Maybe it’s time to revise this?

  23. Sure! I haven’t followed its evolution. How do you think we should revise this?

  25. blocked on Pixelfed bugs

    I wonder if the bugs do still exist.

  27. Hey @dansup any chance you could look at the bugs ^ blocking Bridgy Pixelfed support? I’d love to get this moving again!

    …or if you’re close to shipping built in webmention support, that’d be awesome, and I could close this altogether!

  29. Feel free to try and let us know how it goes!

    Bridgy still comes back with errors as if Pixelfed isn’t an ActivityPub server. I’m not sure what behavior is being expected, but Pixelfed (at least the flagship server at pixelfed.social) isn’t doing what Bridgy expects…

  30. @jlgatewood @snarfed.org FWIW those issues are resolved, will close them

  31. @dansup @snarfed.org

    Ok, then maybe it’s something on the Bridgy side that’s not recognizing Pixelfed instances as comparable?

  32. @snarfed.org
    Baby steps are still steps! 👌🏿

    @dansup is there a workaround here?

    For example, Panphy, Tusker and Elk also can’t connect with Pixelfed but Ice Cubes has no problem. the aforementioned bomb out after passing the pixelfed credentials screen in the same manner; Ice Cubes has no problem though… shrug_akko
