Testing the integration between my weblog engine and Mastodon.
When I create a new post, it's published to Twitter, Mastodon, WT.Social and a few others (configured per-post).
Replies are then mirrored locally, in order to preserve them. See an example here: https://blog.taoetc.org/wtsocial_integration_test/index.html
@beto Only to understand better: do you have to regenerate this page to see the new comments, correct?
@laravista correct! The blog is just static pages uploaded to S3, so I need to regenerate it periodically for new comments to show up.
@beto Finally this is good becauuse so you can check before the comments if you want to avoid SPAM or haters or bad stuff
@laravista good point! I haven't had that problem yet, but it would be easy to blacklist some of the comments before republishing the blog.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
