📅 Micropub and WordPress: Custom Posting Applications at WordCamp Santa Clarita Valley 2019

Details

Come for two days of WordCamp Santa Clarita Valley on Friday and Saturday April 5 & 6, 2019, featuring an IndieWeb-related talk by me on Saturday afternoon.
 
I will be at WordCamp both days to chat with participants about the IndieWeb and implementing its principles and related plugins using WordPress in addition to giving a featured talk on Saturday afternoon.

Micropub and WordPress: Custom Posting Applications

The W3C recommended Micropub specification (2017) allows developers to create custom posting applications for a wide variety of data targeting any content management system that supports the spec.
I will provide an overview of the setup and use of the available plugin and endpoint for WordPress. I’ll also provide a beginner walk-though for a variety of client applications like Quill, Teacup, OwnYourGram, OwnYourSwarm, Omnibear, and others that allow one to easily post status updates, bookmarks, likes, check-ins/location data, photos, and more directly to their WordPress sites.
We’ll also talk about how developers can create custom posting interfaces to drastically simplify content creation and posting for clients in ways that can be even simpler and more flexible than working with Gutenberg.

Feature Request: OwnYourSwarm posts should trigger weather lookup

Filed an Issue dshanske/simple-location (GitHub)
simple-location - Adds Basic Location Support to Wordpress

Currently OwnYourSwarm will allow crossposts with GPS data that allows Simple Location to display. Though OYS doesn’t send the weather data, I presume it could be possible that upon receipt of the OYS data that Simple Location could still be triggered to do a weather lookup so that the checkin could display both the location as well as the weather data for that checkin.

Taking things a half step further, perhaps any micropub or other incoming post creation tool that includes location data could automatically trigger a weather lookup? Then OwnYourGram, DsgnWrks Instagram Importer, or other similar tools that create new posts with location data could provide weather as well.
