MicroPub support for Static Blog Engine
Following long deliberation, all development will take place at https://ringdown.ascraeus.org/dgold/nanopub
Note This release removes support for syndicating to twitter.com.
This php script provides micropub support for Static Site Generators. Incoming posts are rewritten to a suitable front-matter format and saved to the user's content store.
Currently, the script will handle the following indieweb functions:-
- replies, adding the title of the article/note you are replying to. Replies can be syndicated to external services.
- photos, note that this functionality requires the use of JSON-posts. nanopub is not presently equipped to handle multipart uploads
- checkins, this functionality is heavily informed by OwnYourSwarm and the format that service uses
nanopub offers the following functionality as described in the formal Micropub Specification
- Supports header and form parameter methods of authentication
- Supports creating posts using
- Supports updating and deleting posts
- Supports JSON syntax and source content query
- Supports replacement and deletion of limited set of properties
- As it uses a separate Media Endpoint it provides configuration query
nanopub additionally supports syndication of content to external silos. Currently it provides syndication to Mastodon, although it also provides a framework implementation for any modern API-based endpoint. An example is provided of the script pinging the micro.blog service to update the user's feed.
The code is self-explanatory and documented, and can be adjusted easily to meet different needs.
Please refer to the Installation Notes
nanopub expects data inputs in accordance with the current (May 2017) Micropub Spec, and does not gracefully handled deprecated formats. In particular:
slugwhen setting the content of the slug property
syndicate-towhen setting syndication targets for POSSE
Any errors resulting from use of the deprecated formats are a matter for the client.
- Make a
setup.phpscript to complete the required configuration settings.
- Implement rsvp's, itineraries &c
