Notes

2020-08-02-indieweb-posse

I do not en¬≠joy syn¬≠di¬≠cat¬≠ing my notes to Fosstodon or Twitter. In my opin¬≠ion, an ugly back¬≠link at the end of every post makes for a not-so-na¬≠tive ex¬≠pe¬≠ri¬≠ence on ei¬≠ther plat¬≠form. I would even go so far as to say that the ac¬≠count at Ô¨Ārst glance might seem like a spam bot!

For brid.gy 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 brid.gy 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 grant¬≠codes looks like a very in¬≠ter¬≠est¬≠ing pro¬≠ject and I may opt to use it - if I can Ô¨Ānd the time. With my week¬≠days com¬≠pletely booked, I doubt this will ma¬≠te¬≠ri¬≠al¬≠ize any time soon.
