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.

Micropublish 2

Today I pushed a rebuild of my Micropub client, Micropublish, live to https://micropublish.net. 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.

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.

Transformative

I’m happy to say this site is now running my new IndieWeb microblogging software, Transformative, which I’ve open-sourced on GitHub.

So I’ve been hacking away for a couple of months but I think I’m almost there with my new personal website/engine.

My aim has been to rebuild to support the latest Micropub draft specification, including full edits and deletes/undeletes via JSON, and pass the Micropub.rocks and Webmention.rocks test suites.

I’m now at 100% for both and I suppose all that’s left is to refactor a tiny bit, import my content, write it up and then push it live. It’s tempting to keep tinkering but I think I’ll learn more from selfdogfooding and getting it out in the wild.
