I also finally set up this site to autoping indieweb.xyz with my entry tags, because I keep forgetting to do that manually and anyway it was easier to just set it up to be like Technorati was back in the day. (Say, isn’t one of the prominent IndieWeb folks formerly one of the prominent Technorati folks?) In any case, I apologize for all of the apparent spam that’s going to happen when I do a webmention backfill.

Yup—this is great. Feel free to just syndicate everything to Indieweb.xyz. It looks like there are some percent-20 characters I need to clean up and I should try to show your posts in chronological order—so this has already been great for catching problems.

One thing to keep in mind is that your posts will really only show up under the first tag in the list. (So, since this post’s first tag is life, that’s where it shows up. The other tags will get cross-posted to—for example, you can see a bunch of light-green colored titles on /en/indieweb, if you click ‘view crossposts’.) The reasoning for this is to prevent what happens with hash tags on social networks—people just throw twenty hash tags on a post, diluting the meaning of each individual tag. If you have one tag to use, you may be more likely to use it judiciously.

I’ve had Indieweb.xyz on the back burner for quite a while—but there has been more activity in the last few months. So I’ll spend some time in December improving it. It’s pretty barebones at the moment.

Anyway, great work on Publ. It’s cool to see what you’re doing with logins—love the idea of IndieAuth on tilde.club.

    Yep, I’d noticed you weren’t handling spaces or dt-published. Glad you caught that too. :)

    Makes sense. What happens if I change what the primary tag is, and then re-ping?

    Just to clarify, Publ can’t run on tilde.club as far as I know (it needs the ability to run WSGI apps); my mention of tilde.club was specifically about people having their IndieWeb profile live on there but delegating IndieAuth to an external endpoint (e.g. IndieLogin) – in theory a tilde.club user could delegate to an external endpoint which spoofs a different tilde.club identity (such as AnyAuth), which is an issue with the URL validation step of the IndieAuth spec.

    Authl’s URL validation already adopts my proposed change, where the validated URL must be more specific than the requested one (for example, http://tilde.club/~fluffy can become http://tilde.club/~fluffy/ or http://tilde.club/~fluffy/blog/, but it can’t become http://tilde.club/~root or http://tilde.club).
