With the closing of Google+ coming up, this is going to be a highly requested feature.
thanks @goob! i will look after that
indeed, in fact i came around here after someone i know from g+ moved from diaspora and asked me if this feature is available here. he asked that also for mastodon, for which the group feature is not implemented yet.
Did you start work on this?
I would like to join in case that is the case.
hey, i wanted to work on this but cant manage to have a few minutes to understand the stack.
i got some answers from the core devs of mastodon that there is no import design done.
you can import what you exported from your mastodon account because it is in a format of activitypub. but i didnt find where it manages that. plus it is written in ruby and i didnt do anything in ruby, just php/symfony for backend stuff.
same about diaspora, didnt check how i can handle import and talk to databases.
if you have clues i take it
Hello all diaspora* enthusiasts I’m also interested in a group feature. I would be happy to contribute documentation and testing.

I’m not a developer. I’m happy to contribute testing and documentation though.
Friendica is able to both read and publish to diaspora* and others. Like diaspora*, Friendica is open source and owned by a friendly community, not a for-profit corporation. diaspora* and Friendica complete and collaborate with each other. Friendica is not a meant as a replacement for diaspora*.
