Developer Tools for ActivityPub. currently support popular fediverse applications like Mastodon, Pixelfed and Peertube. https://fedidb.org/

 

I wish there was a for the entire fediverse, with the ability to filter (pixelfed) photos, (Mastodon, Pleroma etc..) status, video (Peertube) with the intent to foster better content discovery, people to follow.

 

Having a lot of fun with Yeoboseyo as a client to orchestrate RSS to Mastodon, FreshRSS as a backend, now I just have to star something I want to toot for it to be on the fediverse

 

The new dashboard is really neat, liking the ability to plug-in notifications from different apps and even external accounts (twitter, mastodon)

 

The Birdsite outage, finally part of the world can breath, for those on the blue bird platform, make sure to teleport yourself to the fediverse where decentralization put users in control of their time-line. This note is syndicated to Twitter and Mastodon from my blog.

 

 

Since a few months I'm using @mapkyca Known packages instead of the bleeding edge composer install, not sure why, but with composer I managed to bork my installation to the point of not being able to syndicate to Twitter, Mastodon, hence I went back to Known release, meaning tedious upgrades are back !

 

Yes, the recipe is WithKnown + Mastodon plugin :)

 

Worked a bit on my WordPress site today

Just a quick note but in short, I have a WordPress running, my intention with this site/landing page is to learn to put in place & for a WordPress site but I had one constraint, I wanted to keep Elementor to design my pages, indeed I have become so much used to Elementor, it now takes me double time to work with core WordPress Gutemberg or doing page the old school approach.

After some discussion yesterday on I realized I could use a WordPress theme indieweb ready, called Autonomie (edit this post to add some links) with on top Elementor, so this is what I did today, but I'm not convinced yet, because I have issue with Author h-card not being visible for indiewebify checker tool.

I'm still messing around and thinking about how I have to correctly put this in place and then test indieauth, Micropub, Microsub from my WordPress instance.

If Elementor adds too much mess I will default to Autonomie & back to a very simple/pure/core approach to my WordPress site.

 

The recipe I'm using to publish as of now :

Updates on my blog can take several forms, a simple link I want to bookmark to read later, a status update with or without a link, a picture, audio, video, event, geo checkin etc.. It could also be a long post format about something specific I'm ranting about or passionately want to share with the world. The point is, I'm trying to create value and data on my blog first and thanks to the wonders of I can push what I create on my blog to different social media platforms : birdy site is still a place, even tho I find myself pushing to more often than I push to Twitter.

By using WithKnown & it's different plug-ins (Twitter, Mastodon, Facebook pages) I can publish on my blog, push copies to silo networks or the fediverse and cherry on top of the cake : get reactions to my posts on silo networks or on the fediverse to be pulled back to my website original post, as if these reactions (Comment, retoot/retweets/shares/favs/likes) were all different kinds of interactions, no matter where they come from on the web.

And of course if you own an compatible website / blog you can use my URL to comment directly on your website and it will stack up like any other reaction chronologically under my original post.

That's the web we should build while these pivot in behavior slowly dephase the silo networks out of our lives and we proclaim the Open Web to be "The Social Network" it should have been in the first place.

Need any help?
