Bookmarked Micropub 2.2.0 for WordPress Released by David ShanskeDavid Shanske (david.shanske.com)
Micropub 2.2.0 has one major change in it. IndieAuth client code was removed. This code now lives in the IndieAuth plugin. This means that Micropub does not check for scopes. It uses the built-in WordPress capability system to determine if an action should be performed. The IndieAuth plugin limits c...

#IndieWeb to the rescue. There are a few great options for this. None of which should require you to write any code! 

One of my favorite is Kevin Marks’ Noter Live (open source) which is great for live tweeting and creating long threads quickly, especially at conferences. When you’re done, it’s kept a record of everything which you can quickly cut/paste as HTML into your website for an instant archive post.

Another option if your website supports the Micropub spec (perhaps with a plugin?) ThreadReaderApp recently added support to let you unroll the thread and you can go to your account and authenticate to your website and post the thread with one click.

I’ll also note that WordPress’ Gutenberg just added the ability to unroll threads to websites built with it as well. 

In addition to general public use, these could actually be the backbone of an interesting journalistic live notebook for reporters in the field who could quickly compile/archive their threads for expanded articles later on.

Read IndieAuth 3.5.0 for WordPress Released by David ShanskeDavid Shanske (david.shanske.com)
Earlier in the week, I noted the release of IndieAuth 3.5.0, but I didn’t explain the major under the hood changes that occurred here in a post, which I need to do as at least one person is experiencing issues(probably necessitating a 3.5.1 as soon as I figure out why.) I also noted I forgot to de...

Read Unroll Your Twitter Threads Into WordPress by Gary Gary (The WordPress.com Blog)
Turn your recent Twitter thread into your next blog post.
I’m curious if they were following the recent functionality added by ThreadReaderApp using Micropub? I’m guessing the fact that they used the verb “unroll” means they were at least aware of it as a functionality.

#IndieWeb interoperability FTW!

Another option, though without Micropub (yet!), is Kevin MarksNoterLive tool. It’ll let you create a thread and then (manually) copy over the rich data into your website pretty quickly. I love it especially for conferences.

Micropub is one of several important IndieWeb building blocks, answering the question: what would a posting API look like if we started over, stripping away everything except the most basic requirement of sending post text to a server, and then build on top of that foundation when clients and servers in the real world need more?
RSVPed Attending IndieWebCamp: Micropub Pop-Up Session

July 25, 2020 at 09:30AM- July 25, 2020 at 11:30AM

The Micropub protocol is used to create, update and delete posts on one's own domain using third-party clients.

This session will be to iterate on proposed extensions to Micropub, listed on the Micropub-extensions page.

We will discuss which extensions can be moved to stable, try to better define those proposed, and to see who is willing to implement what proposal.

I ran across ProseMirror yesterday and my first thought was: I want this for writing and posting to my website! Not having the time or experience to set it up and integrate it myself, I wonder if there’s a public instance of it on the web that has Micropub integration?

That would allow it to publish to to several dozen different CMSes including WordPress, Drupal, WithKnown, Craft, Jekyll, Kirby, Hugo, and Micro​.Blog among a growing set of others.

I know that iA Writer recently added Micropub support to allow people to use their tool to publish this way. Sadly they’ve only got it working as Mac/iOS clients and not as a web client, which is something at which ProseMirror might excel.

Learning Paths Annotations and Highlights to One’s Website Using ThreadReaderApp

Some small pieces, loosely joined for owning one’s highlights online.

I ran across a Chrome extension for highlights, annotations, and tagging tonight. It’s called Learning Paths. It works roughly as advertised for creating and saving highlights and annotations online. With a social silo log in process (I didn’t see an email login option), you’ve quickly got an account on the service.

You can then use the extension to highlight, tag, and annotate web pages. One can export their data as a .csv file which is nice. They’ve also got an online dashboard which displays all your data and has the ability to see public data from other users as well.

Screencapture of the Learning Paths UI for their Chrome extension

One of the interesting pieces they support is allowing users to tweet a thread from all their highlights of a piece online. Upon seeing this I thought it might make a useful feature for getting data into one’s personal wiki, website, or digital garden, particularly now that  ThreadReaderApp supports posting unrolled Twitter threads to one’s Micropub enabled website

So the workflow goes something like this (with links to examples of my having tried it along the way):

While this works relatively well, there are a few drawbacks:

  • The UI for the annotations is a bit flaky at times and in my experience often disappears before you’ve had a chance to save them.
  • The workflow misses out on any of the annotations and tags you might add to each of the highlights (unless you manually add them to the thread, and even then you may run out of space/characters).
  • The appearance of the thread on your site is simply what you get.

While the idea works roughly in practice, it isn’t as optimal as the workflow or data fidelity I’ve found in using more robust tooling like that found in Hypothes.is for which I’ve also built a better UI on my website.

Still others, might appreciate the idea, so have at it! I’d love to see others’ ideas about owning their highlights, annotations, and related data in a place they control.

Articles on Quill don’t seem to have the ability to syndicate to twitter and mastodo, so I might end up using micropublish. Bit frustrating to figure this all out, but also kind of fun to be honest.
If you use the Syndication Links plugin and configure it, Quill should be able to find your Twitter and Mastodon “endpoints” on your site and provide you with buttons to syndicate to them. 

It looks like your theme has an extra u-photo on it that’s causing that avatar image to be sent to Twitter by the way. The way the microformats are set up is also causing them (Syndication Links) to display too, but it’s fixable with some tinkering. You might try IndieWeb chat to see if someone can help you troubleshoot it.

I do that! Try Micropub plugin + Syndication Links plugin + Quill or any of the other micropub clients that support posting notes and syndication endpoints.

Reach out if you need help to get it set up.

If you want to go crazy and thread your Twitter conversations, that’s possible too…
