Reply to Curtis McHale and David Wolfpaw on rel-alternate

The conversation started in the IndieWeb Chat last week with:
15:27 aaronpk: “my post permalinks now have a rel=alternate link to an mf2 and jf2 JSON version of the post”

And continued over the next several hours and days primarily with participation of aaronpk, GWG, and pfefferle among a few others.

David Shanske (GWG) and I discussed an overview of it in the most recent episode of An IndieWeb Podcast. The conversation about rel=”alternate” begins at the 11:00 minute mark.

Somewhere there’s a note that GWG has already built a big chunk of code into the Webmention/Semantic Linkbacks plugin that implements a large chunk of the work already. There’s also some work done in https://github.com/indieweb/wordpress-mf2-feed as well.

  1. GWG has not explicitly build in a chunk of code into the Webmention/Semantic-Linkbacks plugins, the charming part of rel-alternate is, that it works nearly the same way, as the current implementations are working… it simply saves us the parsing part.
