@boilingsteam In theory, yes, but I haven't written the code yet that actually sends out a ForgeFed Activity after each user action.

@ta180m so thats not something thats baked in gitea for now in terms of features?

@boilingsteam Yeah, federation features will (most likely) be released in Gitea 1.18 in October. All of this code is still highly experimental and can be found at

@drwho Federation features will most likely be released in Gitea 1.18, so you only have to wait until October...

You *could* try the code ( now, but it's all highly experimental and might cause damage to your Gitea database, so I wouldn't recommend it.

@kas Not yet. Federation features will probably be officially released in Gitea 1.18 in October.

@genofire @kas I submitted a draft PR but it's blocked by #19133 currently so it'll be a while until it's merged.

@daniel It's a highly experimental feature right now and will be officially released in Gitea 1.18.

@ta180m How did you do that? I can’t seem to follow mine. I have federation enabled.

@gergely It's experimental code that won't be officially released until Gitea 1.18 in October. You can find the code here:
