Huginn is a system for building agents that perform automated tasks for you online. They can read the web, watch for events, and take actions on your behalf. Huginn's Agents create and consume events, propagating them along a directed graph. Think of it as a hackable version of IFTTT or Zapier on your own server. You always know who has your data. You do.
Aperture is a Microsub server. Microsub is a spec that provides a standardized way for reader apps to interact with feeds. By splitting feed parsing and displaying posts into separate parts, a reader app can focus on presenting posts to the user instead of also having to parse feeds. A Microsub server manages the list of people you're following and collects their posts, and a Micropub app shows the posts to the user by fetching them from the server.
Another piece of the IndieWeb puzzle. #indieweb
Have you ever stumbled upon an article that you want to read, but don't have the time to read right away? Indiepaper is here to help! Send your articles to Indiepaper using the bookmarklet, macOS app, or iOS Workflow, and Indiepaper will extract the article contents and save it for later by publishing to your micropub server.
Indiepaper pairs wonderfully with microsub servers like Aperture and Indie Reader apps like Together, Indigenous, and Monocle.
Homebrew Website Club Nuremberg is back from hiatus! Had a great time w/ @cowglow and our newest member. Missed @jkphl though. :( #indieweb
Today I created an initial draft of OwnYourSwarm, a service that will convert your Swarm checkins to Micropub requests, and post them to your site. This is an early draft of the service still, but it should be functional enough to post basic checkins to your site.
One of the popular readers I saw talked about in the #IndieWeb chat was Woodwind. It was easy to get started by logging in with my own website and then subscribing to my own site to get all my h-feeds, h-entrys, h-cards, etc. in a row. Recently, the hosted version of Woodwind at https://
woodwind.xyz/ was down for a few days, so I set out to host my own.
