Is there a way to bridge Matrix with ActivityPub? I see MXToot[1] as an option, but I'm hoping for something a little less Mastodon-specific. I'd like to be able to bridge Matrix with Mastodon, Hubzilla, Peertube, Pixelfed, and the other ActivityPub federated services that are popping up.

Would it be possible to get the Bifrost[2] to integrate with ActivityPub?

There isn't a particularly sophisticated ActivityPub bridge yet, but there's also nothing stopping someone from writing one.

Bifrost would be a nice framework for writing such a thing - it's basically a bridge server you can plug protocols into as needed, a bit like Bitlbee is for IRC.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
