I finally did what I thought about a few months ago: I finally deleted my Twitter account (or rather deactivated it, it will be deleted if I do not log in for another 30 days).

Joining the Indieweb, the web that’s been here all along

This is a chicken-and-egg problem. Until enough websites are using Indieweb standards to publish content, it will remain a niche.

How to do PESOS from Pocket to Micropub

After thinking about it, I finally figured out how to PESOS from Pocket to my own site using IFTTT. I tried to do it in a similar way to how Charlotte Allen did this.

How should I upload files to my Micropub media endpoint?

Published on in 💬 Micro
Updated on

The first things I did this year was to create a media endpoint for my Micropub server. It works by uploading files to BunnyCDN via their storage API (great service and easy API!). However, now that I have this endpoint, I would also like to use it. It seems that there is a lack of clients that support uploading media to the media endpoint and then returning me the correct URL. I can use Indigenous to upload photos from my phone, but it seems like other file formats aren’t supported. How am I supposed to create posts with audio or other files? Also Micropublish (the client I usually use on PCs) doesn’t seem to support media at all.

PESOS

I should definitely checkout how to PESOS for Pocket. I use Pocket quite often, but don’t publish all links on my blog. For that I still need to improve bookmark support and than use something like IFTTT to publish recommended or starred articles to a bookmarks section.

Self-hosting my blog and its services

Self-hosting my blog and the related services not only gives me the independence from third-party-services, it also gives me the option to customize things to my liking. In my opinion, this is even more important.

Thanks for your tip to take a look at the post by Steve Layton! Unfortunately I’m not using micro.blog currently and rather want my setup to be self-hosted as much as possible. To do that I recently also started receiving webmentions myself instead of relying on webmention.io. It’s not that I don’t like these services, it’s more that I strive for full control over my setup.

IndieWeb dream

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

My IndieWeb setup is continuing to evolve. I just added support for syndication (this post should appear on IndieNews) and JSON-posting to my Hugo backend and theme. Unfortunately, adding support for more IndieWeb features to this setup requires a lot of documentation reading, reverse engineering and looking at how other people have done that (of course in other programming languages, one has not much knowledge in).

More thoughts about ActivityPub support for this Hugo blog

Published on in 💬 Micro

I plan to add a bit of ActivityPub to my blog to be able to interact with the fediverse, without the need to use Mastodon, Pleroma or my current microblog. Just my static Hugo blog with it’s dynamic Go-backend. Because I don’t want to implement everything from scratch - I haven’t yet added media support for MicroPub - I am in search for libraries that help implementing ActivityPub, or at least give me a starting point. I discovered the library activityserver, which is used by a tool called pherephone by write.as, maybe that can help me.
