Made my homepage by means of : Now this pure HTML site must learn and . But how?


Thanks to @nxd4n I can publish my status updates from my cms @WithKnown to the mastodon fediverse. Thank you.


Hi Chris, I unfortunately must correct my opinion about my solution of "having read posts" by means of google books iframes - these posts load rather slowly and, by the way, they are not that much IndieWeb like.


Indiewebify my static Hugo website

1 min read

Mit Hilfe eines kleinen Services von Pelle Wessmann namens ist es mir auf meiner statischen Hugo-Seite möglich, Kommentare, Likes, Reposts u.ä. via Webmentions einzusammeln.

Erster Schritt - Anmelden und Code einfügen

Log in to webmention service

Anschließend Domain eingeben und die beiden Code-Schnipsel einfügen. Den ersten in die header.html, den zweiten in die single.html.

Zweiter Schritt - CSS-Klassen hinzufügen

Das Stylesheet der Service-Seite aufrufen: Darin alles, was webmention enthält, in die eigene CSS-Datei kopieren. In meinem Fall in die CSS meines Hugo-Themes Mainroad.

Dritter Schritt - Neuer Build

Einen neuen Build laufen lassen ohne server-Befehl, dass der public-Ordner neu befüllt wird. Anschließend den public-Ordner auf den Webspace kopieren. Darauf achten, dass auch die neue CSS mit auf dem Webspace liegt.

Vierter Schritt - Kommentieren und Liken

Die beiden Posts vor diesem Artikel sind ein Like und ein Kommentar. d.h. ich habe einfach die URL zitiert. Das Ergebnis dieser beiden Posts auf ist folgendes:

Thanks to Barry Frost, I have understood in the end how commenting works with IndieWeb: My CMS Known does that automatically behind the scenes. But now I know what is actually happening.


Why Facebook's new Open Graph makes us all part of the web underclass | Technology | The Guardian

When you own a domain you're a first class citizen of the web. A householder and landowner. What you can do on your own website is only very broadly constrained by law and convention. You can post the content you like. You can run the software you want, including software you've written or customised yourself. And you can design it to look the way you want.

If you use a paid-for web service at someone else's domain you're a tenant. A second class citizen. You don't have much control.

When you use a free web service you're the underclass. At best you're a guest. At worst you're a beggar, couchsurfing the web and scavenging for crumbs. It's a cliché but worth repeating: if you're not paying for it, you're aren't the customer, you're the product.
