My feed reader, current status. Just because. Still runs on just about any hosting environment, still supports h-feeds. No Micropub, yet. (Well, Micropub works. Interface still missing.)

Learned about HTML Purifier’s “Allowed” (rather than “AllowedElements”) setting, and that PicoFeed strips empty HTML tags by default. Anyway, entries that contain tables now look good!
Added “unread counts” to my RSS reader’s Microsub implementation. Fun fact: the reader itself—the new one—doesn’t display them. But Microsub clients will. Some (not very) creative use of Laravel’s
$casts array is all it took!
Did I already mention I brought back
figcaption support to my “soon-to-be-social” reader? Makes posts look so much better!
Looks like the IndieAuth Client for PHP dropped the
me param when it exchanged
exchangeAuthorizationCode() around when it moved to the 1.0.0 version, and that WordPress’s IndieAuth plugin never fully caught up, I’m thinking because Aperture hadn’t upgraded till now (and no one is foolish enough to self-host it, let alone the very latest version). (Also, please correct me if I’m wrong.)
Jack Jamieson on Yarns, his Microsub plugin for WordPress:
Essentially, I wanted to replace my Twitter timeline with a timeline of IndieWeb posts.
I very much like the fact that the different “mainstream” IndieWeb plugins exist separately. That way, I can install only what I need—IndieAuth and Micropub.
I may have added a rather hacky single-entry view to my Monocle fork.

A daily cron job on my severely underpowered media server does the rest. Also, I’m currently using a hardcoded “bearer token” to access the not-so-public list, but there’s really no reason to not expose an actual (h-)feed for these posts.

Feels ironic to be bookmarking this, on my site. That said, there’s a reason I’ve created separate feeds for separate post types, and I do try to stay off the mainstream social networks.
I implemented support for bookmarks and likes and replies because these are commonplace on the IndieWeb. I understand why. Many people still use social media and use their website as a method of syndication. This is not me. I left social media [earlier this year].
This way of sharing (properly curated) bookmarks probably is the way to go. ’Til I have time, though, I’m going to have to do it the quick (and dirty) way.
I like [Ana Rodriguez’] approach to bookmarks. She writes one post every month with all of the articles she has bookmarked.
Quickly created this WordPress plugin that basically introduces a short-form CPT—well, two, but you don’t necessarily have to use ‘em both—and maps Micropub entries to it. That’s it. How’s this relate to Post Kinds? It doesn’t. I like how it keeps WP Admin (and permalink URLs) really neat and all, but there’s no meta boxes, and no markup gets generated for you. (Want to add, e.g.,
u-in-reply-to in there? Gonna have to do that by hand.) https://github.com/janboddez/indieweb-custom-post-types
Anyway, if you’ve got both a h-feed and an RSS feed—you’ve probably got more than one, which is great—for pretty much the same items, and they’re both reasonably error-free and understandable, I’m gonna follow the h-feed. (There’s occasional errors in my microformatted HTML, too, which I’ll then rectify, and so on. It’s sort of unavoidable and no biggie.)
I usually prefer to read articles on their original websites – partly so that they don’t all blend together like Medium sludge, and partly because syndicated content has an uncomfortably high probability of losing formatting and even chunks of text.
Why I start most—but not all—replies with “In reply to,” you ask? So that the few folks following me via RSS would know what the heck I’m going on about.
Just set up a #micropub media endpoint, and figured out how to get Indigenous to always use it. Up next: set up the back end so that a single photo uploaded thru a Micropub post also becomes that post’s Featured Image.
