I’ve previously complained about not being able to easily add a `class` to inline links in Gutenberg. This here code takes a bit of a different approach, and uses `span` and `data` elements instead. (Still, I’d love to be able to just use `a` elements, _in a robust manner_.)
Updated my “‘IndieWeb’ Custom Post Types” plugin a bit. Integrated a couple things I’d implemented as several must-use plugins at first; it all became a bit much. (Good thing nobody else actually uses it; their feeds would break.)
Owning My Scrobbles https://jan.boddez.net/articles/owning-my-scrobbles
Want to create a modern, block-based, #IndieWeb-compatible #WordPress site. (Thing is, a lot of “IndieWeb” posts are created _outside_ of its [block] editor, i.e., through Micropub. [That’s not to say carefully crafted long-form posts can’t be, e.g., “replies.” They can.] The other thing is I don’t really like WordPress’s autogenerated markup/classes, etc. Athough there’s definitely things that can be done about that, too.)
Spent an hour or two writing a (basic) WordPress plugin that consumes “audio scrobbles,” like those sent to Last.fm. So rather than (share my data with a third-party service and then) use their API to display a widget or whatever on my blog, my CMS _itself_ is now the “audio scrobbling” endpoint.
I’ve long deleted my Last.fm profile (as well as my LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram, and various other accounts). Now looking into scrobbling directly _to my own site_. (I know mpdscribble let’s you set a target URL, and that scrobbles are essentially HTTP POST requests with an XML body, so it shouldn’t be too hard to parse these.) #IndieWeb
Not-so-pro tip: in your #IndieWeb RSS feeds, do not name titleless notes “No Title,” but leave out the `title` tag altogether.
I don't "book blog," but I do tend to forget which graphic novels—like, what edition and such—I actually own, even if there's only 25 of them at most. (I mostly get whatever few books I read from the local public library.) I mean, I'm going to have to do a (smallish) "books" section now. #indieweb
