Bonfire Framework

Elixir-based ActivityPub implementation and library with groups and RBAC

Bonfire is an open-source, federated social networking toolkit, designed to empower communities to build custom and federated social networks. The current focus of our project is to improve the stability, performance, and documentation of our codebase, honing a solid framework that enhances user experience and encourages wider adoption. We aim to catch bugs, enhance platform performance, and enrich the developer experience by crafting comprehensive tutorials and documentation. A key aspect of our project involves extending our ActivityPub Library, which underpins the federated nature of Bonfire, and contributing back to the ActivityPub ecosystem by releasing v1.0 of our open-source ActivityPub library. The expected outcomes include a robust, efficient Bonfire framework to be used in production, a surge in developer and community adoption, and contributions to standardize federation protocols.
