Woohoo📣 , I think I just got #indieweb #webmentions working on my site! I used #bridgy to integrate it with #mastodon so hopefully replies to this toot should show up embedded in the comments section. 🤞🙏
next step is adding a little mastodon form to toot directly from the comments section, but that's another days project.
and it's working! at least for 🐦 site. haven't had any mastodon activity to test yet. (reply if you want to field test software 😀)
@bonkerfield There you go :)
@lu thank you lu! you are now forever immortalized in the comments of my hello world blog post. 🙏
Is <script>alert('hi!');</script> supported?
@sexybiggetje uh oh, i guess i'm about to find out. 😅
Not seeing the comment tho
@sexybiggetje yeah, it's not in real-time unfortunately. looking at the UI, it seems that it does a pull about every 30 minutes.
@bonkerfield immortalize me! I have to get web mentions working for my site too.
@genbyte @sexybiggetje oh no, it looks like brid.gy only backtracks up 2 replies to find a link for the original post on masto. so these experiments will only work if the reply to the original posts is guess. ugh, i'm currently developing on brid.gy right now to add reddit integration, so i'll file an issue to investigate. 😩
@bonkerfield nice. Back before I took my site down I was using mastodon for comments. A modified version of https://gitlab.com/BeS/hugo-sustain-ng/tree/master/static/mastodon.comments
Worked a treat.
@basil yeah that's the way to do it. why did you take your site down, might I ask?
@bonkerfield just temporary while I hunt for a new URL.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
