I’ve been doing without Facebook for a while now. I honestly don’t miss it in the slightest.
More and more tempted to just deactive Facebook account. Barely touched it for anything recently. Do wish there was an indie alternative that offered the same level of network though. FB has network monopoly that makes leaving it harder.
A big of a long-off goal with the indieweb BDD specs, would be for it to be a generic way to automate how many of the features of indieweb a site had implemented. Kind of an automated IndieMark. But really, just something to give you an idea of which features you could choose to implement, and which ones you’ve already implemented successfully. It should of course be implementation agnostic – it’s just testing functionality after all (the point of BDD).
Why do BDD with my site? It’s mostly as excuse to play around and learn about a few different things – indieweb, BDD, codeception. I’m also a big fan of the BDD approach, forcing you to think about why you’re implementing something, what’s the value, before you go ahead and implement it. Plus, regression tests FTW.
Started working on BDD specs for my site. Using codeception – very impressed with it so far, quite a mature BDD tool. After all the initial faffing around with setup, I’m at a point where I have a Gherkin spec that navigates to a page, checks for some content, and takes a screenshot.
Cool description of @mentions, and a nice tip on setting up a special mentions page in WordPress.
Nice to randomly discover that my domain name provider, @iwantmyname, support the #indieweb. https://iwantmyname.com/blog/let-s-make-2017-the-year-of-the-indie-webAlso on:
A comment by Chris Aldrich outlines an IndieWeb approach to web annotations. Awesome! http://boffosocko.com/2017/03/03/reply-to-web-annotations-are-now-a-w3c-standard-paving-the-way-for-decentralized-annotation-infrastructure/Also on:
Testing a note creation from micropublish.net.
Many OOTB benefits, but WordPress for indieweb does bring with it the (contested) database antipattern. I do miss the flat-files/git combo that came with Hexo.
Nice to see mastadon social doing well at the moment. http://www.vocativ.com/418129/mastodon-social-network-twitter/Also on:
It works! Like @_dgoldsmith here (https://ascraeus.org/doing-it-the-hard-way/), I’m wondering why Bridgy Publish isn’t included in the indieweb plugin bundle.Also on:
This is a placeholder for an upcoming article, in which I’ll document how I got started with indiewebifying WordPress.
For now, you can read my notes tagged with indieweb.
Categories vs tags, the age old question. But particularly in this case, which works best when publishing via micropub? Quill doesn’t seem to support categories?
Indiewebifying WordPress has been fantastically simple so far, thanks to great plugins and supporting tools.
Note from inkstone didn’t appear to work. It just sat there after hitting ‘post’.
Quill almost works – but doesn’t set the post type that is used by wordpress. Well – I guess that’s an issue in the micropub endpoint.
Testing a note from quill.
Not by default, no – the note comes through with an article for note kind.
