I’ll be attending and most likely working on a blog post that I need to write about owning my RSVPs, before I actually forget what I did at IWC London.
I use Mastodon Autopost (github.com/simonfrey/mastodon_wordpress_autopost) for this. (I think originally came across it via Chris Aldrich). You can choose per post whether you want to post to your instance. I also added a couple of very hacky functions (github.com/ngm/semloop/blob/master/includes/syndication-targets.php) to add it as a Micropub syndication target.
Heading off to Homebrew Website Club London shortly. . and posting about it from Indigenous on Android, to my website, which syndicates to Mastodon! Good times. #indieweb
lve found though that sometimes a monolith can help. e.g. though I love vim and its key bindings, an IDE of some kind, whether it’s Visual Studio or Emacs, can really help tie things together. The key is providing a wrapper around well defined components, not rebuilding everything from scratch. This is where there is great value in something like known or the WordPress lndieweb plugins.
The Unix philosophy makes sense when it comes to indie web etc. Various small components doing their jobs well and interacting with each other through defined formats and protocols.
At the moment that last part, syndicating out to Twitter, isn’t working.
My goal for @hwclondon this week is to get quill or micropublish working, including posseing to Twitter. #indieweb
Indiewebifying WordPress has been fantastically simple so far, thanks to great plugins and supporting tools.
