Trying out – another online Micropub client besides the Quill one. Great to be able to pick between different ones and this one feels to be especially great for those who constructs their own Micropub endpoints as it very cl…

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.

Micropub is now a @W3C CR. Congratulations to @aaronpk and all the #indieweb contributors.

With this news I’m excited to see further clients and servers start to emerge. I’ve been using Micropub as the only method of posting to this site since January 2015 but I’ve yet to add in full update/delete capabilities. Time to get hacking.

Just published new working drafts of Webmention and Micropub! Thanks to everyone for their contributions to these updated drafts!

I’m excited to read about Manton Reece‘s upcoming microblog platform, especially as he seems keen to support Micropub and Webmention.
