A microblog of sorts. Collects notes and likes.

I’ve simply stopped backfeeding (Mastodon or Twitter) comments.

When someone actually sends me a webmention, though, I’ll likely show it—in full if it’s short enough, or a brief snippet and link back to their post.

If my site supported ActivityPub and someone replied to one of my posts using Mastodon (or a similar service), I’d probably do the same.

In both cases, honoring updates/deletes seems like the right thing to do.

I’d never heard of scrollbar-gutter: stable (but regularly use overflow-y: scroll). The former probably looks better on most pages; if certain elements are to extend all the way to the edge of the window, an actual scrollbar may provide the more consistent look.

I now strip Markdown from (autogenerated) note “titles.” This should allow compatible Atom readers to more correctly recognize notes, and, as a result, hide note “titles.” (My RSS feeds don’t contain note titles to begin with; for RSS, I simply drop notes’ title elements altogether. Most readers are okay with that. If your reader insists on displaying a “title,” or a URL if it can’t find one, you might consider subscribing to the Atom feed instead and get a somewhat useful “title.”)

I’m not actually sure that I want a Twitter replacement. As I said up top, I’m gonna try posting fewer things, more thoughtfully. A new app that lets me rapidly tap out hot takes isn’t exactly a good way of supporting that.

Do you have a second instance—Mastodon, preferably, as you’d definitely want to test against that—that you control? So that you can inspect log files, and the database?

Sounds like either the Announcement did not get accepted after all, or something with the Status’s visibility

Created a website for IndieBlocks. Hoping to eventually add proper documentation (the end-user kind, with screenshots and stuff), and code snippets and so on.

Now, to actually bring the (released version of the) plugin in line with the Getting Started guide. 😬
