Hello fediverse! lib.reviews/ is a free/open/nonprofit alternative to proprietary review sites like #Goodreads, #Yelp, #IMDB.

It plugs into #opendata sources: #Wikidata, #OpenLibrary and #OpenStreetMap (OSM integration is very basic at this point). Still a long way to go but we have a small community and lots of reviews already. On GitHub at: github.com/eloquence/lib.revie - IRC: #lib.reviews on irc.freenode.net - Matrix: matrix.to/#/#lib.reviews:matri



@lib_reviews love this on so many levels. Any plans to federate the platform? Seems like it might be crucial to bake that in from the start...


Thanks for the kind words! I personally won't be able to take the lead on federation support in the near future, but let me know if you're interested in collaborating on it! - Erik

@lib_reviews fab. Good to know you’re open in principle - will keep an eye on the project and contribute what I can!
