Welcome to the Agora!

This is an Agora. You can find a reference implementation live at https://anagora.org/. This Agora's architecture has several components distributed over three git repositories:

To join

If you would like to join the reference Agora described in this particular repository, please send a PR adding your garden to gardens.yaml or reach out to flancian or a member of the fedstoa with a pointer to your content and a choice of username.

After being integrated, your garden will appear live at https://anagora.org/@username and your notes will be integrated into the Agora; this means that if you volunteer a note named foo.md, it will show up in node https://anagora.org/foo together with all similar notes by other Agora users.

To run

To run the reference Agora:

  • Clone all three repositories described above (ideally in the $HOME directory of a dedicated user; this is not strictly needed, but scripts might assume this).
  • Install Python requirements in each of agora-server and agora-bridge:
python3 -m venv venv
. venv/bin/activate
pip3 install -r requirements.txt

Of course you are also free to run your own Agora! To do this, just run the bridge against a local gardens.yaml file -- or fork the root repository and adjust as wished. As usual please reach out if you need a hand with anything :)

Wait, what's an Agora again?

An Agora is a distributed, goal-oriented social network operating on a cooperatively built and maintained knowledge graph. The implementation you are currently looking at tries to assemble such a graph out of a collection of digital gardens, but other data sources are coming.

You can view the Agora at https://anagora.org. For how to write to it: if you take personal digital notes with some system such as foam or obsidian, you are most of the way there; all you need to do is share them with the Agora (see "join" above). If you don't, but you would like to, please refer to agora client or reach out!


If you contribute directly to an Agora you are assumed to be in agreement with its then current contract.

Please refer to the Agora's contract, in particular as posted by the system account @agora (which is binding for all users).

Navigating this garden

My Garden setup

Sensitive information is stored in a "walled garden", an encrypted keybase git-submodule. But couldn't combine existing repo with it, due to GitHub's jekyll complains, as explained in [[foam]]. So it has to happen in 2 steps: clone and attach submodule locally only.

Walled Garden

Command to attach my walled Garden:

git submodule add -f keybase://private/ankostis/GardenWall Walls

The -f is needed because .gitmodules is in .gitignore, for it must not be pushed to GitHub repo.

Kieran's Agora is a place of constant learning. While you may draw assumptions from what is being learned here, a friendly, open, and charitable discussion will be given a chance upon disagreement.

Like all Agora, it may change. This is to be celebrated. Knowledge is not static.
