@MikeKra36812131 Perhaps a bit more free-form with a tangential name, but let's give it a whirl and see who would show up:

@vv4rner While I love what RSS enables and there's a huge ecosystem for it, I am against it for DRY reasons. It's stable in the fact that no one has iterated on it in over a decade. It also helps that WordPress core handles a lot of the admin tax for me on maintaining it, but it has caused metacrap issues for me in the past.

So what to do to replace RSS? If you look at most of my content, I've got the HTML marked up with (richer) microformats for those who'd like to consume that directly without needing a side file for it. There's an existing ecosystem of microformats parsers and even social readers that use microformats over RSS. Incidentally microformats are also part of the semantic layer that makes site-to-site converstions on IndieWeb-based sites work better.

 

@JamieTanna @fiinixdesign @hdv Try any platform (social or otherwise) that will let you add a public link to the webpage you're responding to, then use a service for sending them manually. Tumblr, WordPress, etc. should work, though may not be pretty.

@BiswasSholanki I've wanted to try out Ghost, but this part has been a blocker. https://indieweb.org/webmention.js might be a place to look for some inspiration. I'd invite you to join us for this upcoming event which will certainly touch on your topic: https://events.indieweb.org/2021/05/webmentions-beyond-webmention-io-zG4JpHhZShVA

 

@AndreJaenisch Sonke Ahrens' book How to Take Smart Notes about Luhmann's method is very solid (https://bookshop.org/a/17195/9781542866507). Lots of systems out there to implement it. I like @obsdmd, but other platforms listed here: https://indieweb.org/commonplace_book

 

@weh_kaniini There are definitely some using Craft for IndieWeb. There's a plugin for v2, but I don't think it's been updated for v3 yet. Details/examples: https://indieweb.org/Craft

 

@TYLTK Mine's back up, and from what I see in the Known chat, you should be back too. Details about the issue here: https://chat.indieweb.org/known/2021-01-29#t1611887103870200

 

@AndreJaenisch Yes, they took that name as an homage.

Interested in becoming part of the after @t's talk at ? I'm happy to help or answer questions. I've also got some WordPress specific experiments and documentation (on my own website, of course):

The invited talk "Take Back Your Web" given by the thoughtful and Inimitable @t should be livestreaming in just a few minutes from WordCamp US

Wishing I was at today to hear my friend Tantek Çelik @t, web standards lead @Mozilla & @CSSwg, talk on "Take Back Your Web"

Livestream: https://2019.us.wordcamp.org/livestream/saturday/#240 at 2:30PM Central

@ASpittel The best beginner projects are building things to use for one's self. They could try building and improving their own websites. Indieweb.org has lots of ideas, open source code samples, and a helpful community.

 

After some warm-hearted arm-twisting by the incomparable @VeriousSmith, I've submitted a talk about and to @WordCampRS '19.
Talk or not, I look forward to seeing everyone Nov 8-10.

Could I volunteer some web development time/energy to help any interested @RadioRookies journalists build their own websites/platforms for empowering/owning their voices, stories, and reporting portfolios? https://indieweb.org/Indieweb_for_Journalism

 

This is one of the best end funniest uses I've seen yet for having a domain of one's own!
