Are there any #ActivityPub or #MastoDev people around here who can explain/point to a source in something approximating plain language how the Mastodon remote follow functionality works? The Ruby code is a like trying to read hieroglyphs for me.

Context: I'm interested in whether something similar can be implemented for @bookwyrm, preferably in a software-neutral way (i.e. remote follow from Misskey or Pleroma or Mastodon etc)

Boosts welcome.

and now BookWyrm is also available in Galician! Shoutout to @xosem for getting to 100% coverage

Pois xa estaría @bookwyrm en #galego.

Xa me dixeron que a incluían na vindeira actualización.

Vou ver se atopo os fallos antes de que a publiquen, que os haberá, e axuda a que a xente se anime a compartir a súas lecturas.
