Would it be feasible to build a offline-first #ActivityPub client that synced all posts to a local database?
You could interact with everything and do your thing and then sync it up to your instance when you had an internet connection again.
That's one aspect of #Scuttlebutt that I really like.
It's seems like it would be possible but I don't know the protocol at all.
@kawaiipunk Yes I think it would. Epicyon isn't designed like that at present, but I do have the framework to potentially use DAT as the transport protocol. If that works it would have similar properties to scuttlebutt.
The main changes for offline first would be that everything would need to be cached, including things like photos/videos.
@bob oh wow, that is some super exciting sci-fi hacker vision!
@kawaiipunk i feel like there also need to be a shift in people's expectations of how "live" AP should be
@kawaiipunk it's definitely possible. Not easy, but possible.
@kawaiipunk possible, yet there are not a lot of services that provide ActivityPub client to server capabilities which your question implies.
