Anyone looking to add Fediverse (Mastodon, Pixelfed, et al.) icons to Twenty Twenty-One’s footer menu, the theme comes with two filter hooks that make this sort of thing really easy. https://github.com/janboddez/add-fediverse-icons-to-jetpack/issues/4#issuecomment-885560883
Totally using my feed reader as a read-it-later app and it’s awesome. On mobile. I need a proper desktop/in-browser Micropub client.
There’s a single site my feed reader can no longer handle, and I think it’s IPv6-related and that I might be able to work around it.

How I use my feed reader as a read-it-later app? Using Micropub, I add a “read” post to (the CMS of) my user-facing website, which posts a second Micropub request to my reader (something I “stole” from Aperture). Subsequently, the reader recognizes the request and sees the “read” post type, and downloads the web page in question. It then looks for
e-content, or an
main element, etc. (Specific rules exist for specific sites!) Finally, the resulting entry is added to a “Read Later” feed.

I’m really excited for when everyone gets over newsletters and discovers blogs and feeds.
Some feed reader notes:
- Modified my feed reader to accept Micropub “read” posts, and act like a read-it-later app
- Will need improved “content extraction filters,” eventually
- Moved all such non-core features to a plugin system of sorts
- Plugins are Composer/Laravel packages that are registered on-the-fly rather than autoloaded the normal way
- Settled on Eventy rather than “default” event listeners, etc., for filter and action hooks
- All of this allows admins to add, (de)activate or delete plugins without shell access (or breaking things)

What if I used Indigenous to send “read” posts to my site and then have my server automatically push these articles—i.e., for URLs—to a specific “feed” in my reader? Same way I treat YouTube vids, kind of. I’d no longer need a separate read-it-later app!

Been using my Twitter account as a bit of a personal wiki, i.e., to gather and comment on news, shape thoughts, etc., which is not good. Let’s see how I can port some of these tweets over to my personal site.
More folks should do this.
I’m still here. I don’t like letting this blog go months without a check-in, so I wanted to pop in and say hello.
Turns out the funky character that causes SimplePie (and, frankly, Firefox) to choke on https://css-irl.info/rss.xml is a “File Separator.” And that
preg_replace('/[\x1C-\x1F]/', '', $xml) is what “fixes” it.
