Yes it would be possible via the Pubcrawl ActivityPub plugin of Hubzilla. But since AP is not native to Hubzilla it is a bit hit or miss.

I ran a Hubzilla instance for a few years and ultimately came to the conclusion that it works nicely as a personal cloud for friends and family, but is less suitable for an internet community.

@Roslavets remember: "Friendica is a Lemmy’s best friend’ 🤣

@notizie They are not just friends: they fuck divinely 😹

@Roslavets

hubzilla is more “facebook like”, that is something like a blog where a user posts to a feed he owns, unlike in lemmy where you post to a community.

One nice thing about it is that you can post to specific “subjects”, so if i am interested say in investing and in FOSS, you person can subscribe to read just what i write about FOSS, and another can subscribe to just what i write about investing.

But iirc the UX for this is kinda bad, it’s not surprising it appears like it’s shrinking while other projects like misskey and friendica seem to be growing.

Doesn’t it have groups?

For example, Friendica is also a more facebook-like experience, but it has forums (kind of facebook group) that you can publish to, and you can publish to a lemmy community in the same way

@liwott sì ,hubzilla ha anche i gruppi. Fondamentalmente devi pensare a hubzilla come un friendica teoricamente petfezionato nel protocollo di comunicazione e in altre funzioni, ma ancora con dei forti problemi di ergonomia e una curva di apprendimento molto ripida…
In ogni caso, ho guardato obzilla con molto interesse, ma non sono riuscito ad appassionarmi.
L’idea che mi sono fatto è che utilizzare hubzilla per vivere il fediverso è come utilizzare Blender per fare fotoritocco 🤣🤣🤣

Grazie per la risposta. Ora che ho capito che i gruppi Hubzilla sono infatti AP-compatibili, forse tu sai se sono compatibili con Lemmy?

Penso che a un certo punto mi interesserò un po di piu a Hubzilla, me per il momento sto bene su Nerdica 🙂

@liwott non saprei, ma posso fare qualche esperimento

Hubzilla is pretty similar to Friendica as the original design is by the same person, and yes it has groups.

I know about the common origin, but it is not that obvious to me that any Friendica feature will be present in Hubzilla. In particular, are Hubzilla groups compatible with ActivityPub?

Yes it is possible to use Hubzilla groups with ActivityPub and vise versa, but I am not sure if they work with Lemmy.

Friendica used to be even closer to Hubzilla, but then the new maintainers rewrote much of the core to become ActivityPub native.
