FYI this is a webmention sent as mastodon reply :)
Oh yeah I meant to test your protocol-relative endpoint link in Pushl. I’m sure it’ll work but it’s worth checking anyway.
Oh hey welcome to Seattle! How long are you in town for?
Also congrats on finding the secret garden. Lots of folks I know have lived here for years without knowing that was a thing. (I only found out about it a few years ago, myself, because I was bored on a day that the rest of the market happened to be closed for a holiday.)
Testing the other side
Looks like dougbeal is trying to restart the Homebrew Website Club Seattle chapter. This is my “definitely maybe” RSVP. :)
Oh, yes, and it’s great; I just wanted something much simpler. I took a look at it, but some requirements (like my ATOM feed needing WebSub compliance, which I didn’t know the meaning of, and other things that I sincerely didn’t understand) made me wish for something more straightforward. I run my script on the same computer that stores my
atom.xmlfile, so I have no need for download support and/or caching further than knowing the timestamp of the file.
Ah, just to clarify, WebSub isn’t required, it’s just supported — it’s just one of the things Pushl supports. I hadn’t considered offline support as something that someone might want, so for that use case Gruta is definitely a better choice.
I’ll consider making it more clear what’s optional in the documentation, since I can see that being a point of confusion!
I’ve written a script to add Webmention support for static sites. It’s available from:
That’s cool, but did you happen to see my tool Pushl that does the same thing? It has a few other features like feed autodiscovery, WebSub, and RFC5005 archive backfilling. And it’s pip-installable!
Just testing to see if fed.brid.gy is working now. Hopefully helps with issue 46.
Haha, sorry for the in-line links! I was thinking of tag-reply posts from the receiving side, as a way of letting others suggest tags for your posts. Readers of your comics post tag-replies on their site, your site would receive them as webmentions and you could add them to the comic post or not.
It’s all IndieWeb building blocks, but it’s a lot of plumbing on your side (accepting webmention data into your tags, moderating) and theirs (making a post on their own site with markup, sending webmentions).
Don’t apologize for the inline links, I could have just not added them. ;)
And okay, I understand what you’re getting at now! Yeah that seems like a possible way to do things although it’s a lot of setup for a lot of people and I like to use the principle of least effort for things like this.
Also this has inspired me to make a subcategory for the blog for conversational threads. I wonder if the webmentions will end up getting re-sent to the previous entry on this new category. I also wonder if I should set up a rule on my Atom feed to let people filter out posts like these.
