Open Sourced: Fedi-Games

I've open sourced fedi-games, as previously mentioned here. The code is still quiet rough as this is a learning project for me. But maybe someone finds this useful to implement their own ActivityPub server. Or maybe someone wants to build some new games :)

Fediverse Games

In order to understand the ActivityPub protocol (at some point I want to make my blog available via ActivityPub) I've created a minimal server hosting game services for the Fediverse.

The service is currently hosted on and provides three games:

  • Rock Paper Scissors
  • Tic-Tac-Toe
  • Bunkers, an artillery game

The games can be played by mentioning the service and and your opponent in a note. I've mainly tested these with Mastodon but they should also work with other fediverse apps.

I want to release the source code soon, but it still needs some clean up, documentation and testing to be useful to anyone. The server is written in go and if you want to build something similar I've used these libraries to help with the ActivityPub implementation:



Inheritance Pattern in Go

Go isn't an object oriented language and doesn't have inheritance. Sometimes I still want to model something in a similar way as I would in an object oriented languages. My blog software has different types of "entries", e.g. articles, images, recipes ... This is modeled by an interface Entry which has to be implemented by each type of post.

// truncated for simplicity
type Entry interface {
	ID() string
	Content() EntryContent
	PublishedAt() *time.Time
	Title() string
	SetID(id string)
	SetPublishedAt(publishedAt *time.Time)

One problem with this is, that I have to implement these functions for each type of entry. Many of these implementation will be identical leading to a high degree of code duplication. To avoid this I've created an EntryBase, which implements sensible defaults.

type EntryBase struct {
	id          string
	publishedAt *time.Time

func (e *EntryBase) ID() string {

func (e *EntryBase) PublishedAt() *time.Time {
	return e.publishedAt

func (e *EntryBase) SetID(id string) { = id

func (e *EntryBase) SetPublishedAt(publishedAt *time.Time) {
	e.publishedAt = publishedAt

With this "base class" the specific implementations only have to implement functions which differ between entry types.

type Article struct {
	meta ArticleMetaData

type ArticleMetaData struct {
	Title   string
	Content string

func (e *Article) Title() string {
	return e.meta.Title

func (e *Article) Content() model.EntryContent {
    // render content from markdown
