@enkiv2 Cool! I love seeing all the different approaches to mastodon, and what that reveals about what other folk want from the platform.
I'd say "I should just make my own frontend" but I know if I did that I'd want to make my own backend, too, and I have enough other little projects I've taken onto my plate.
If it helps -- making your own frontend becomes almost trivial if you're doing it in python because of mastodon.py, but from what I understand, ActivityPub is so big and hulking that making a backend is a huge project still. I'm very tempted to refactor fern to separate out mastodon-specific parts & give it support for targetting SSB, because of the weight of SSB clients.
