A while back I built a site that converts RSS feeds to ActivityPub actors that you can subscribe to from Mastodon and other ActivityPub-compliant social networks: https://bots.tinysubversions.com/convert/
I've now also published the source code: https://github.com/dariusk/activtypub-to-rss
@darius Wonderful, thank you! Have you considered pulling the site favicons as avatars for the bot accounts?
@sluglife I already pull the image associated with the feed (see @flash_forward as an example). I suppose I could fall back to the favicon if no image is described in the feed metadata
@sluglife Okay, I added this feature!
@darius @sluglife This is great! Will existing feeds get the favicon failback or only new feeds?
@ryandaniels @sluglife only new feeds. I might write a script to refresh everything when I get around to it
