Webring

This webring is an attempt to inspire artists & developers to create and maintain their own website and share traffic among each other. The webring's aim is to share hand-crafted websites such as diaries, wikis & portfolios. To add yourself to the ring, submit an edit to this repository.

Join the webring

<a href='https://webring.xxiivv.com/#random' target='_blank'><img src='https://webring.xxiivv.com/icon.black.svg'/></a>
  • Add the webring icon to your website html.
  • Add your website information to the sites.js file. The url and contact keys are required, but you can also include title, type, author, rss, and feed.
  • Submit a Pull Request with the location of the webring icon on your site.

Alternatively, if you your website has a dark background, use icon.white.svg. If your website is complaining about https, go ahead and host the icon yourself. Single page websites, websites acting only as portals to other social platforms and websites with content involving violence, racism, sexism or speciesism, will be rejected.

Circular Linking

Instead of linking to the directory, you can also link to the next link in the ring by adding parts of your site or domain in the hash of the request url:

<a href='https://webring.xxiivv.com/#wiki.xxiivv' target='_blank' rel="noopener noreferrer"><img src='https://webring.xxiivv.com/icon.black.svg'/></a>

Joining the hallway

The Hallway is a decentralized forum using twtxt feeds.

To join, create a .txt file on your site, and add its URL to your webring entry as feed:. The content of the file should be a dateISO string, a tab(or 3 spaces) and a message:

2016-02-04T13:30:00+01:00   You can really go crazy here! ┐(゚∀゚)┌
2016-02-03T23:05:00+01:00   @<example http://example.org/twtxt.txt> welcome to twtxt!
2016-02-01T11:00:00+01:00   This is just another example.
2015-12-12T12:00:00+01:00   Fiat lux!

This file needs to be accessible via CORS, so if you're self-hosting, please make sure to allow the webring.xxiivv.com origin.
Here's an example of how to do so with Nginx:

location / {
    index index.html;
    if ($request_method = 'GET') {
        add_header 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' 'https://webring.xxiivv.com';
        add_header 'Access-Control-Allow-Methods' 'GET';
        add_header 'Access-Control-Allow-Headers' 'DNT,User-Agent,X-Requested-With,If-Modified-Since,Cache-Control,Content-Type,Range';
        add_header 'Access-Control-Expose-Headers' 'Content-Length,Content-Range';
     }
}

You don't need to allow all origins nor allow any other methods rather than GET, doing so can harm the security of your website, please read about Cross-Origin Resource Sharing if you intend to do anything more complicated.

API

This repository does not contain mature API capabilities, but there are a couple ways to request a list of sites and other information currently in the webring.
