First Steps to IndieWeb


I stumbled across Aaron Parecki's website, and it got me thinking about IndieWeb and how I might implement it.

So I've started to make some changes to my Hugo theme in anticipation of doing that (and of adding the ability to do micro-publishing).

Now, I really need to get webmention working, which I've started by following Ana Ulin's instructions. As a test, I will try mentioning myself on this page.

If you webmention this page, please let me know the URL of your page.

BTW: Your webmention won't show up until I next "build" my site.

  • Hello Peter Smith, How going? I also using Hugo, the getting webmention response working is easier if using a javascript called as PlaidWeb/webmention.js . Some tips from my experience :

    • Setup the h-card because it important and needed for indieAuth (to use some external services such as https://webmention.io )
    • You may use https://xray.p3k.io to inspect if the HTML are parse correctly, you can submit the URL or just paste the raw HTML (even with localhost / 127.0.0.1 addressed inside the source code, it working very well). It save my time during debugging.
    • I also use https://telegraph.p3k.io to preview (check) if all link inside h-entry support webmention. You also can manually send webmention by give a source and target from there.
    • Lastly, validate published web using https://indiewebify.me/ get your website until level 3.

    Hope this helpful 😀
