Read webmentions and microsub (gopher.floodgap.com)

This phlog is about web stuff. Specifically it's about Indyweb things and microformats.

I use my website https://tomasino.org as an IndieAuth [0] portal. When logging into sites that understand the IndieWeb concept, I provide my "Home" URL as an identifier. Then the site scrubs through all the various links I have on that page and picks out those that it can understand for authentication. In most cases I get GPG and GitHub hits, though occasionally a site will support more. I oAuth in, and bam... identified. It's pretty neat and requires very little effort on my side.

IndieWeb with Gopher. Not sure if this will send a Webmention correctly though…
