Sources

Aside from project pages and issue trackers, comments made on the fediverse, the SocialWG has a list of projects they hoped would implement ActivityPub and links to issues where it's discussed. Also, there is an implementation report on ActivityPub.rocks. There are many projects using AP profiled on We Distribute. There are boards for discussing a range of implementations on the SocialHub forum. Alternative.to has a list of servers and client apps. The ActivityPub tag on Github is also a good way to discover projects experimenting with an implementation.
