Somewhat relevant to running microblog on a separate subdomain.
Currently, if you lookup an account on a Mastodon instance running on
separate subdomain, for example https://social.vivaldi.net/users/alex -
microblogpub shows its handle as
@Alex@social.vivaldi.net. Which works,
but is not perfect, since Mastodon itself shows it as
To find this handle, you need to execute an extra request to https://social.vivaldi.net/.well-known/webfinger?resource=https://social.vivaldi.net/users/alex
I wasn't aware of that.
Making an extra webfinger requests just to get the right/official domain, that would be useful only for a tiny percentage of actors is a bit painful. I wish it was embedded in the AP object.
Since a lookup for
@Alex@vivaldi.netdoes work, I don't think this is a high-priority task, but I agree it would be nice to support.
Hey, I finally pushed a fix for this, see https://todo.sr.ht/~tsileo/microblog.pub/89 for more context.
