Diffu is a Free Software allowing authors to publish all kinds of texts or articles and to aggregate the reactions they generate on social networks, especially through #ActivityPub such as #Mastodon, #PeerTube, #Pleroma, #PixelFed, #Funkwhale, #Hubzilla, #GNUSocial ...
Diffu is a kind of free and federated alternative to #Medium or other applications that are not always easy to install.
ReToot are welcome 😉 !
@ayla Diffu is written in PHP and we want to keep it easy to install on a standard or shared web hosting (unlike Plume or WriteFreely)
Diffu is not a blogging platform (even if it could be used for that), it is a publishing platform open to activitypub account owners. Much more like PeerTube which is used to publish video because Mastodon doesn't allow you to do it, Diffu allows you to publish a long text.

i'm loving @Diffu
as a nice federated-microbbling-&-blogging remix if i'm getting it right ?
... i'm just another atom in the universe, a universe of atoms.

#france becoming the new origin for innovation in free social web?
Was there a specific event which triggered these innovations that allow #emanzipation?
#gilettesjaunes? The long state of emergency?

I'm from @cryptpad. In France we have great non profits like @Framasoft @LaQuadrature @aprilorg that are communicating about these subjects. While it could get more support, we also have healthy free software and open source ecosystems. And we have a long standing to not letting the status quo on place and try new solutions. Specifically for décentralisation & activitypub I would credit Framasoft for its recent growth in the public mind
@Diffu @Framasoft @cryptpad
Thanks for explaining. Really great development! I was really curious because #france did not have this reputation for such specific technologies before. At least not that I know. Rather new that people were involved in other areas of #foss .
I guess it's also a language issue: we tend to follow news in our native language and then "international" updates in English. This is then biased towards Anglo-Saxon parts.
@Diffu this looks awesome!
@Diffu Is this available yet? This looks absolutely stunnin!
@unklebonehead not jet, this is only an empty mockup. Follow us to stay informed 😉
C'est vraiment une super idée!
@filippodb true, it will be its future location 😉
@Diffu So no command line stuff for installation?
@zudn none, it's promised !
Many shared web hostings don't let customers accessing CLI, we are thinking to them 🤗
@Diffu Bless you!
@Diffu I’m not sure i understand exactly what this is. Is it a blog platform with federated comments ?
