About IndieWeb and Micropub

The IndieWeb is a move­ment to de­cen­tral­ize the so­cial web.

The Micropub pro­to­col is used to cre­ate, up­date and delete posts on one's own do­main us­ing third-party clients. Web apps and na­tive apps (e.g., iPhone, Android) can use Micropub to post and edit ar­ti­cles, short notes, com­ments, likes, pho­tos, events or other kinds of posts on your own web­site.

Goals

I am build­ing this Micropub client with a few goals in mind:

  • Be as spec-com­pli­ant as pos­si­ble.
  • Look good and sup­port mod­ern fea­tures such as sys­tem-based dark mode and re­duced mo­tion pref­er­ence.
  • Make self-host­ing as easy as con­fig­ur­ing en­vi­ron­ment vari­ables fol­lowed by docker-compose up.
  • Make IndieWeb ac­ces­si­ble to less tech­ni­cally in­clined folks.
  • To make some­thing use­ful for my­self and oth­ers while I fig­ure out and learn back­end con­tent.

⭐ If you'd like to show me some sup­port, please star the pro­ject. 🥰
