dang now i feel bad abt not working on my indieweb-capable site for like. a year
@00dani counterpoint: I've worked endlessly on the backend and server and formatting, but have yet to really write any blog posts hehe
@quarky oh dang mood
@00dani what's that?
@petra https://indieweb.org, it's basically a set of standards you can make your personal site follow to make it federate with other people's personal sites? it's similar to activitypub in a way, but much simpler and focused on single-user personal websites
mastodon does actually use some of the indieweb stuff too, there's a standard called microformats2 that lets you use html classes to describe things like "this part of the page is a blog post and it was written by this person" in a way programs can understand, and masto uses those classes too
@petra there's also:
indieauth, which is the aspect of the system that initially fascinated me: basically it's a simplified and focused version of oauth 2.0 that lets you securely authenticate yourself to arbitrary indieauth-supporting sites using your personal site's url As Your Identity
webmention, which lets you reply to a post on someone else's site by making a post on your site, and is also hilariously simple - you literally just pass your post's url to a particular endpoint on their server to say "hey i just mentioned you lol"
it's neat stuff!
