This looks like an interesting experiment. Curious to see how something like this might be implemented in a social feed reader. https://twitter.com/EthanZ/status/931230918274179073?s=09

 

@cswordpress Kudos on your new wiki userpage! I compiled a page with some resources to make it easier for you to find Indieweb community members to follow: https://indieweb.org/people

 

The more I think about archiving the web this week, the more value and stability I think that the W3C's Webmentions spec could be adding to the internet and copies of it.

@palewire @Chronotope Here's some code in multiple languages that could do just that: https://indieweb.org/Internet_Archive#Trigger_an_Archive

 

For citations, @Regina2SU, you could use the W3C's Webmention protocol for sending/receiving notifications

@machawk1 @LinkArchiver I post all of my content to my *own* site first and then syndicate it to Twitter secondarily. All of my primary website posts are additionally backed up via API to @InternetArchive in addition to @LinkArchiver and personal back ups (local and cloud) of my site and occasional downloads of my exported Twitter Archive.

Our friends at the have some advice/help for sending data to @InternetArchive

@han_cee Is Holo ready for generation 2 yet? (i.e. easy enough to use?) https://indieweb.org/generations

 

I was just surfing my way through @huffduffer and thought: @schmarty and @andrewhazlett should know each other if they haven't managed to meet yet.

 

@jackjamieson I just saw your profile pop up on the IW wiki and was excited to see someone else interested in WordPress related readers. There are a few others in the repository that you might want to be aware of including:
* Orbital Feed Reader: https://wordpress.org/plugins/orbital-feed-reader/
* PressForward: https://wordpress.org/plugins/pressforward/
* Edublogs: https://edublogs.org/ (They've got a built in (non-optional) feed reader plugin, but I believe it's proprietary to their platform.)

Though PressForward was built for a tangential use, I think it may be one of the most robust and fully featured in the group. I know it's actively developed and would likely accept pull requests. I've written a bit about using it before here:
http://boffosocko.com/2016/12/31/pressforward-as-an-indieweb-wordpress-based-rss-feed-reader-pocketinstapaper-replacement/

I'm curious what your particular itches are in the area, especially if they include adding Woodwind-type interactions to a WordPress based indie reader? This may be one of the biggest pieces missing from the WordPress indie ecosystem.

 

@kevinmarks Your ears must be burning. I was just documenting that on the wiki under /rel-me and /verified!

 

@DrNomyn You can go .org or .com. Latter gives you more flexibility https://indieweb.org/Getting_Started_on_WordPress
If you want your own domain and hosting I'm happy to help set it up if you're not comfortable doing it yourself. A few plugins will get you most of the way.

 

@DrNomyn If you do go this route and need any help at all, don't hesitate to ask. @mrkrndvs

I'm worried that John just set the creative bar too high with this bit of genius...
John, you've won the IndieWeb for the day.
