Reading on and sharing from it using your own blog: love #indieweb !

2 min read

Been busy on lately so when I logged in to my account, using my own website to login I was impressed to notice not only I could intereact with the content of my subscriptions (like, reply, fav) but I was also able to comment (using my own site to host the comment thanks to micropub) but most of all I could POSSE or syndicate my comment to the social media profile I wanted without leaving the Woodwind interface : this in short is a dream come true for me, it means I can read content I subscribe in one place and use my own site as a pilot to push my interactions to other silo's (think facebook, twitter or more open mastodon) while hosting the reply on my own website !! 

I'm trully amazed but maybe you think this all sounds like very complicated, so let me link to a few examples : 

This is Woodwind interface, it shows a post from Jeremy Keith at 

I commented from Woodwind but thanks to Micropub, I self-host my comments : 

Link :

Thanks to Webmentions these self-hosted comments are also displayed on blog post :

This is amazing, not sure people realize how much amazing it is in fact !

it means indieweb principles, ideas are every day one step closer to become a unified "put it in practice" approach to build interactions on the openweb between differents website/indentities while still being able to push these interactions where one's want them to go (mastodon, twitter, facebook) and still be part of global conversation while retaining ownership of data produced. 

All of this is possible thanks to amazing people in different communities cooperating together to build step by step another vision of the social web, a vision where People are in the center of interactions and have control on the content they produce while still dancing with other platforms or closed platforms; this is huge !

Meet the IndieWeb peeps on IRC on Freenode, visit !

Just another test from, can I comment from woodwind and POSSE to mastodon & twitter ? answer: yes :)

Ricardo Mendes

The ultimate & & Facebook test ! all from the great @withknown social blog engine !

Ricardo Mendes

I'm looking for a plugin for @withknown or even wondering if it's possible to from @withknown to a mastodon instance :)

Ricardo Mendes

Bunch of Ideas for coming to my mind :

- a plugin to POSSE to Identica/GnuNet/Diaspora kind of alter-network
- a plugin to invite visitors to share to SILO's respecting their privacy
- a plugin to have some sort of Indie Reader integrated into Known so I can share/repost/like whatever content I get directly from the reader back to Known.

Visualizing the great @kevinmarks noterlive with IndieAuth + Micropub + POSSE

I'm particularly excited by the future ability to indieAuth to NoterLive directly with my own website and be able through Micropub to not only use NoterLive as client to take live conference notes but also to be able to do so from my own site + (just a wish) the integrated ability in the process to POSSE directly to my own social media profiles on silo networks, this in short mean live indie-blogging + POSSEing all fron a nice dashboard .

I will try to use this from mobile tomorow at or from tablet I just wish i could upload a picture from time to time.

Well the good news is @twitter is keeping the 140 characters limit #twitter #maketwittergreatagain

And the even better good news is that with there is no NEED to have more than 140 characters because well I already have them : just by using this blog engine I can write the amound I want and still only push the first 140 characters on Twitter with a link, indieweb people call this POSSE and you should try it !

Ricardo Mendes

Wishing I could my reply/repost/stars/like when I interact with content on

Ricardo Mendes

Alright I just had a #Eureka moment!!! #indieweb

: this is not possible (yet) with Known ....:/

test todo : 

- Video with my smartphone using Chrome/Firefox to record a video directly from this site and POSSE it to twitter & facebook successfully. 

- what about time limits (if any?)


This is a great "news" for me and it's seems I'm late and the worst is I have been so busy to discover and put in place my own solution and learning all the process that I completely missed that I could already video to twitter and facebook from my own site...and given the value that video is having these times I'm baffled to have missed this feature for so long...and can't wait to try it out :)
