Short status updates that may end up elsewhere, too.

I, uh, built a thing. Know it’s ugly, still. It’s a traditional RSS reader … that supports Microformats feeds and—for now, at least—IndieAuth. And there will be a Microsub-compatible API. (The web app itself isn’t Microsub-driven.) Runs on nearly any shared hosting environment.

Looks like the IndieAuth Client for PHP dropped the me param when it exchanged getAccessToken() for 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.)

Now I don’t use Gutenberg—I let the Micropub plugin generate the necessary markup, or hand-code it inside WP Admin—because my site’s actual front end isn’t a WordPress app, but I do on this other blog of mine, where I’m also running https://github.com/janboddez/indieweb-custom-post-types, which registers just Note and Like CPTs and makes Micropub apply them. Very simple, extremely flexible.

On microformats and Gutenberg. I’d been thinking about this before. I decided against Post Kinds back in the day precisely because a post’s type should simply be implied by its contents. And blocks are a solution for having to type out markup by hand, and you could use them for different custom post types—I do make the distinction between articles (regular posts) and notes (which are short updates without a title).
