Crawling the IndieWeb

I’ve been using a self-hosted webmentiond on my own site for about a month and a half, and I’ve loved the experience so I thought I’d share. Deploying is easy; it’s just a single statically-linked binary and an assets directory for the web UI…

Sometimes I think that the way people talk about webmentions (even me) is far too limited. The protocol itself is incredibly flexible. Why should it be that we limit ourselves to reinventing …

You know, sometimes Indieweb people say “this is a case for webmentions!” when I’m… not really sure it’s a case for webmentions. But this? …

let a webmention and websub enabled site interact with activitypub

avoiding caching others' PII with runtime javascript

I love this! I tried doing something similar with footer post recommendations, not h-cards. The web should be full of dynamic inclusion! Of course, that spirit means I may need to run my own CORS server to bounce `f…
