How to tell type of activitypub server


@Sean Tilley @Nolan @Hypolite Petovan so I know '<domain name>/api/v1/instance' will give you info about a server, but it won't tell you what type of server it is. Is there another common activitypub endpoint for that?
I think you can get away with using nodeinfo to perform a lookup?

Not ActivityPub proper, and kind of a hack, but you could totally use that to determine platform.
'.well-known/nodeinfo' works perfectly! thanks @Sean Tilley
