There was a time I thought about how to change my life. A lot of things changed in my life but I needed to adapt somehow. I also wasn’t very happy with how I used my time and needed a purpose in my life. I started writing blog posts daily (on Medium back then - see my archive of many old Medium articles here). Today I finally read an article, which I wanted to read for a long time.
Yesterday, I added support to my Hugo theme to use it to reply to other posts on the web using the u-in-reply-to class (here’s the documentation for h-entry) and sending a webmention after publishing the post. Now I can use my blog to comment on other IndieWeb-compatible sites, how cool is that? 😄 Some sites automatically display received webmentions, but I currently don’t plan to do so. However, I receive webmentions and see them in my feed reader.
Amit Gawande replied to my post about journaling with rwtxt with a question regarding my setup: Your setup really sounds interesting to me and I would love to have something similar setup. Can you please elaborate on this a bit? Here’s how it looks like and how exactly I use it… Like a lot of other services, I self-host rwtxt using Docker on my home cloud (using an Odroid HC2).
I stumbled on to /e/ some time ago (when it was announced and when they announced pre-installed refurbished phones with /e/), but took another look today after the launch of Android 10. In my opinion Android’s development is very worrying as it get’s more coupled to Google with every release. I don’t like iOS either, because its a completely walled garden. /e/ tries to provide help to completely break free from Google by not only offering an alternative smartphone OS, but also alternative hosted services like email, cloud storage etc.
I just wanted to share the tool, which I use to send my webmentions. I use the webmention Go library by Will Norris, which also includes a simple command line tool. If you have Go installed on your computer, you can simply install it by typing this into your terminal: go get willnorris.com/go/webmention/cmd/webmention After that, just use the command webmention followed by your post URL and you can select to which detected links it should try to send a webmention.
