came across webxdc.org by @delta in the Redecentralize Digest, I could see this implemented in a fediverse context as well, I wonder if anyone has played with this type of thing here

You probably wouldn't be surprised that my fediverse projects have been doing this for years.

@mike would love to play with this as well. Awesome to hear it. Is there documentation? An attempt at some standardization? A list of whats possible? If another fediverse project wanted to also support this idea and be compatible where would they need to start?

@liaizon@social.wake.st Hubzilla has a federated word-guessing game. Polls are kind of such apps too.
I think I recall you had a zap account at some point so I'll start with that.

From the hamburger menu at the top of the page, select 'Installed Apps'.
Select 'Manage Apps'
Select 'Create New App'

Enter a name and a URL. Everything else is optional. You'll get rainbow man as the app photo/icon if you don't supply one. Submit.

Go back to 'Manage Apps' and click the pencil (edit) icon for your app. At the bottom is an 'Embed code'. Paste that into a post. Anybody on a supported platform will see a nicely rendered app and have the ability to install or upgrade it into their own app collection.

ActivityPub folks will currently see "Embedded app could not be displayed". I suppose we should probably provide the URL so they can still visit the link that the app points to. That would take about 5 minutes to fix.

No other fediverse project has ever been interested in anything we're doing or have done in the past, so no. You can get an idea of what's possible on the app creation page. The interesting thing about Zot or Nomad apps is that they can be combined with cross-domain access control so that only selected people can use the app - if desired; and there's an optional payment link so you can charge for access. This is compatible with Hubzilla's shopping and ecommerce plugin.
