Just added myself to the IndieWeb directory: https://indieweb-directory.glitch.me It’s also a really clever sneaky avatar cache to prevent the 404 on avatars happening using Webmention
Short form notes
Prefixes when using Microformats
I had always wondered what the p- and u- prefixes meant when using Microformats. Thanks to the Indieweb slack channel I got the answer while querying about u-category and p-category today.
Semantically nothing is different. The prefix is a parser directive. u- (URL) tells it to take the value for category from a href attribute, src attribute, etc. While p- (plain text) tells it to take the value from the element’s inner-text, or sometimes title attribute (e.g. for abbr elements).
Making a note of this here in case I forget.
testing sending a Webmention for the first time
I have been working hard on my #IndieWeb implementation. There is still much to do, the work is constantly being juggled with family life and preparation in moving to New Zealand. Progress is slower than I would like. But there is progress.
My Micropub implementation is nearly complete allowing me to write posts (like this now) from other apps or websites authenticated with my site (via Indieauth). Outstanding is syndication and my media endpoint (next on the list).
Webmentions received are almost complete. I support most types, outstanding are RSVP and bookmark. Recently I have updated my code to receive Webmentions as soon as the post is published. Previously I waited 6 hours. This is working really smoothly and I am happy with it.
Sending Webmentions is still unfinished. I am mulling over my implementation of this, due to the nature of static sites and thinking of a simple implementation I would be happy with.
I often have so many ideas and projects I want to work on it feels crippling. To try and actually finish things I start, I am hunkering down on getting webmentions finished, ignoring other side projects. Now I just have to find time in my life to do it >.<
Some services on Android and iPhone automatically stores your movements even after you pause the ‘location history’ setting
I think at this point, we just have to assume that all social media companies are tracking everything regardless of what they say publicly. The real question is can GDPR combat it effectively?
This rebrand of the doomed Toys R Us feels fresh and fun. It s a shame it never got to spread its wings.
