Micropublish now supports the proposed Micropub extension for Channels. If your server’s endpoint responds to ?q=channel, or your config has a channel property, you can use the new field.

While my current site doesn’t use channels, I’ve designed page management in my new, work-in-progress server to use the new proposal.

For a while now, I've wanted to tweak the way that my site stores contextual information about posts that it interacts with, such as Twitter interactions. For RSVPs, I stored the cite data in an event property, which didn't make sense because it wasn…

Micropub is an awesome standard, and I've really enjoyed building for it. The best thing about using an open standard is the abundance of clients. But one thing that has made it slightly painful to use is where I want to do things which are more me-s…

My goal for @hwclondon this week is to get quill or micropublish working, including posseing to Twitter. #indieweb

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.

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