Alright the inbox and outbox are now rigged up to the Gitea API, time to test sending a follow request!
YEEEEAH!!!! Federated Gitea following finally works! 🎉 That's me, following another user on my instance: https://git.exozy.me/guest?tab=followers
Ironically federated following only works for local users right now 😃
If you're interested, you can find the code here: https://lab.forgefriends.org/ta180m/gitea/-/tree/feature-manual-inbox-outbox2
This is a great start, but there's still much more to do: supporting following remote users, the UI, database persistence, code cleanup, error handling, and unit tests. Good thing the hard part's over now!
