This is an old post. Information here may be out-dated, or the post may re­flect opin­ions or be­liefs I no longer share.

I do not en­joy syn­di­cat­ing my notes to Fosstodon or Twitter. In my opin­ion, an ugly back­link at the end of every post makes for a not-so-na­tive ex­pe­ri­ence on ei­ther plat­form. I would even go so far as to say that the ac­count at first glance might seem like a spam bot!

For to omit such links, I need to add syn­di­ca­tion links to each of my note with the class u-syndication. This is pos­si­ble only where the Micropub server syn­di­cates con­tent and gives me the links and not when is the one syn­di­cat­ing it af­ter the note is pub­lished.

At the mo­ment, IndieKit does not sup­port this, al­though the readme hints it might be added in the fu­ture.

Until then, I may opt to write notes with­out syn­di­cat­ing them, and con­tinue to use Fosstodon and Twitter as I was - pub­lish­ing na­tively to Fosstodon and Moa cross-post­ing to Twitter. The best place to read my notes then would be to sub­scribe to my all-con­tent feed or my notes feed.

Postr by grant­codes looks like a very in­ter­est­ing pro­ject and I may opt to use it - if I can find the time. With my week­days com­pletely booked, I doubt this will ma­te­ri­al­ize any time soon.
