Thanks ^^ I was just taking inspiration from Aaron's monthly pages, @sebastiangreger.net's use of icons in a timeline and also a bit of your use of icons-per-posttype. Glad to inspire back!

Awesome 🙌 Some great things happening on the presentation of #indieweb sites lately.

I love Sebastiaan Andeweg‘s new day page with an icon summary of his activity that day. And his Reacji facepiles are also very nice. 😍 Plenty of inspiration for some changes I want to make to Transformative.

The past week I mentioned both Martijn and the Twitter-account of the Dutch Railways (@NS_online) in different blogposts. For Martijn, I used a hand-written link with the proper .u-category.h-card classes to person-tag him. [see update below] For @NS

I've long been a believer in the power of the open web, but my passion for saving it has been ignited by the IndieWeb movement, as of late. More and more people are discovering their distaste for creepy, ad-driven content silos like Facebook. Today's…

Acquiescence: a basic IndieAuth server

IndieAuth is a method for using your own domain name to sign in to other sites and tools. It’s one of the key parts of Micropub, the (newly) W3C recommended standard for posting to your site. IndieAuth.com is the original and one of the very few public implementations of an IndieAuth server that you can use, but recently I’ve been having problems getting it to work with my site’s SSL setup.

So I decided this was a good opportunity to try building my own IndieAuth authorization and token endpoints using the detailed documentation in the IndieWeb wiki.

And Acquiescence is the result. It’s very simple (~160 lines of Ruby) and allows me to use my GitHub account to authenticate, authorise and grant scoped access to third-party tools like Micropublish. I’m now using it for this site’s domain.

I’ve used my favourite stack of Ruby, Sinatra and Heroku for hosting, plus Redis to store the auths/tokens. The source code is available at https://github.com/barryf/acquiescence if you want to poke around.

Jonathan Prozzi and I have challenged one another to make a post about improving our websites once a week. This one should have gone up last week! A few weeks ago I posted some thoughts about my IndieWeb setup called "Easier POSSE with Micropu…

Thanks, Marty! You’ve made my day seeing Micropublish being used productively! And that’s the same workflow I use if I want to hand-craft a tweet rather than rely on my site to trim the content.

X-Ray

X-Ray returns structured JSON data from any URL. Potentially useful for extracting reply contexts: it follows authorship and comments presentation rules and constructs a simplified set of data.

For about a week, I’ve been able to receive webmentions but they haven’t been visible on my site. That is a bad experience for several reasons: The first is that it seems strange for someone to send a webmention and if they visit my site later to see…

Indie Microblogging

I’ve just backed Manton Reece‘s “Indie Microblogging: owning your short-form writing” Kickstarter project. It’s a book and upcoming micro blogging platform (Micro.blog) that dovetails neatly with my thoughts and work on the IndieWeb.

As I’ve noted before, Manton aims to support many of the same technologies I’ve implemented on this site and I’m happy to support him in developing his platform. His vocal support for the IndieWeb is a welcome high-profile voice. Good luck, Manton.

Really happy to see that #webmention is now a W3C recommendation. 👏 @aaronpk and all @indiewebcamp implementers.
