Liked IndieAuth for WordPress by David ShanskeDavid Shanske (David Shanske)
Part of my own project for this week, while taking off for the holiday, was to complete work on an Indieauth endpoint for WordPress. IndieAuth is layer on top of OAuth 2.0, a standard that grants websites or applications access to their information on other websites but without providing passwords. ...
Liked A Self-Hosted WordPress Blog with Micro.Blog (The PhoneBoy Blog)
Updated 15 January 2018 with a better introduction Updated 20 January 2018 with auto-linking mentions instructions I have to admit to being intrigued when Manton Reece was initially discussing his micro.blog project back in 2016 on the Core Intuition podcast. I did not participate in the Kickstarter at all, nor did I continue listening to Core Intuition in 2017 to track it that closely. I did look into it a few weeks ago upon hearing about it from some people I interact with on other social networks. From their homepage, micro.blog describes themselves thus: Today's social networks are broken. Ads are everywhere. Hate and harassment are too common. Fake news spreads unchecked. There's a better way: a network of independent microblogs. Short posts like tweets but on your own web site that you control. Micro.blog is a safe community for microblogs. A timeline to follow friends and discover new posts. Hosting built on open standards. In many ways, it's similar to more traditional services like Twitter or Plurk. To participate on the service, you join the service, which gives you the ability to create a profile, and respond to other people's posts. There is also a Discover section where you can find other people using the service. So far, so good. You can originate conversations on micro.blog in one of two ways: On a micro.blog hosted microblog, which you pay $5/mo for the privilege of having. If you go this route, it's effectively no different than Twitter, Plurk, or any number of similiar services. On your own blog, which could be literally anything that spits out an RSS feed. This option is free, and is where things get confusing for some folks. It is also the route I chose. My originating posts to micro.blog appear on a WordPress site I set up specifically for that purpose. I post to it just like any other blog. The native micro.blog clients for iOS and Mac interface directly with my WordPress blog, which means when I use them to post, it looks just like using a Twitter client. I can use any Micropub or WordPress client to post to my blog as well, which will cause a post to show up on micro.blog. When I respond to posts on micro.blog, they are stored on micro.blog, exactly the same as if I was responding to a post on Plurk or Twitter. With a few additional steps, I've made it so the conversations around my micro.blog posts are imported as regular comments on my own blog. The bad news, the process is not nearly as well documented as it should be. This blog post is an attempt at documenting this.
