yay fresh webmentions again

Finally reconnected the site flow bits that grab and file fresh webmentions. Probably going to tweak rendering of the Bridgy bits that feed reactions from bigger social networks. It's that or add threading here for conversation that happens there. No thank you.

Anyways yay!

I got mentions back up

…including on the front page. That's new. Need to rest and refactor before I tackle fresh mentions.

SSG is for putterers

Kev Quirk on static site generators:

SSGs are really cool and super fun to play with – I’m really enjoying it on my side project; but I wish a lot of devs would stop touting about how amazingly simple they are, as it’s just not the case.

I often see "such and such static site generator is simple!" tweets, and wonder what exactly they're comparing it to. DIY dentistry perhaps?

As much as I love puttering with static site generators, "puttering" is the main charm of an SSG. The hooks to customize are right there on the surface. Heck some SSGs are nothing but hooks. And having everything in a git repository is just a developer-focused version of a smart backup plan.

For the Jamstack side of things, I'm not sure I see the advantage of relying on a load of external services over oh say for example having a database and an internal comment system. You know, like Wordpress. Something I've been thinking about a lot in relation to my own site leaning so much on webmention.io.

Clearing the tracks as we go is part of the fun

An ongoing conversation…

If I waited until I had the perfect toolchain for it, then I'd never start. Better to just start typing now, and see where my impatience carries me.

I agree. Sorry for the delay in replying. I needed to create and/or fake the missing pieces of my workflow so I could reply.

And your reply came through just fine! Course, now I need to go fix the bit where it’s not showing up on the note you’re replying to.

Debugging My Site With a Little Help From My Friends

It’s probably redundant to test HTML structure for my pages, but what the heck.
Me, a couple months ago

There’s no rule, but obviously every webmention to my site will have full author info including photo.
Me, a few weeks ago

Look honey I added Webmentions to my Datasette dashboard!
Me, this morning

Sweet, jmac liked my mention! Wait why are tests failing? Maybe check the dashboard?
Me, an hour ago

I fixed it!
Me, a few minutes ago

The fix is reasonable defaults for response author info. I got other fixes in mind, including a default "card" for anonymous response authors. Also, inferring author info from source site. Thanks for the help and the ideas, Jason McIntosh!

Pondering My Indieweb Guinea Pig

jmac seems like a reasonable choice to test Webmentions on. I wouldn’t know about the IndieWeb if not for him. I know I’ll try his Web::Mention library eventually. But first, webmention-tools.

The other stuff didn’t work and didn’t give useful errors. I ended up using Web::Mention. It’s fine. Just half to rewrite half the post. That’s fine.

I Helped genehack!

Skimming through my fraidyc.at updates and oh hey! Something from john sj anderson!

friend of the blog brian wisti had a great post about adding h-entry microformats on his blog, which led to me adding some h-entry stuff here too.

My words helped make something better!
