December 2016

Pushed my Micropub client live - Micropublish - just in time for the new year. Now time for a few drinks. Happy NY!

Micropublish 2

Today I pushed a rebuild of my Micropub client, Micropublish, live to The source is on GitHub. 

I’ve squeezed it out just before the end of 2016 so that I meet my IndieWeb commitment. For the first time I’m now able to edit posts on this site and delete (or undelete) them if needed. 

There are a couple of things I want to improve, but it’s ready for use. If you have a compatible site I’d welcome you to kick the tyres and let me know how you get on.

Great turnout for Xmas Homebrew Website Club London! #indieweb

My 2017-01-01 IndieWeb commitment is to complete my rewrite of Micropublish to support Micropub updates, deletes and undeletes. My site’s Micropub endpoint supports these methods so I now need to bring my client up to date.

I'm stepping in to the well-worn shoes left by @dafyddbach as (Interim) Lead Tech Arch on @GOVUK. It feels like having clown's feet.

@timblair That’s awesome. Congratulations!
