Jump to: navigation, search

Koype is an open-source project that aims to provide a one-stop shop for those looking for a single-tenant Web service to own-your-data.

The project is currently still underway and an example of the single tenant site is available at v2.jacky.wtf. The source code is at git.jacky.wtf. See https://koype.net for more information about the project.

Initial Launch

For its first release (v0.1.0), Koype aims to have the following features:


Koype aims to ship with loads of IndieWeb specific features as well as some other protocols and standards that allow other platforms to interact with it. Despite having everything in it, it'll allow for external configuration pointing to allow for plurality of the building blocks used by Koype.

Webmention Sending and Receiving

Status: working on

Koype provides an internal system for processing and handling WebMentions. There's a dashboard to view incoming webmentions.

Sub Features

  • Add listing/record of outgoing webmentions - currently visible on jobs page
  • Searching by:
    • source (incoming) domains
    • source post types (reply, like etc)
  • Blocking by
    • source domains (regex)
    • source types (regex)
  • Permitting a fixed list of types to be shown

IndieAuth Provider

Status: (baseline), (alt)

Koype provides an in-built IndieAuth system for authenticating the site against remote services. It also provides support for swapping out the in-built system for a third-party service like IndieLogin or Fortress.

Address Book

Status: in progress

Koype allows for one to store h-card information about people in a lightweight fashion using Micropub. For ease of use, immediately searchable attributes are stored to the database. Everything else is stored to longer term storage (the object storage system). This makes it easy to look up people in the future and mention them when appropriate.

Progress Log

  • 10: Baseline Micropub support is underway. Plans on how storage of entries is still lightly in the air.
  • 11: Implemented logic for persisting Micropub data in the form of h-entry JSON.
  • 26: Post-type detection is provided.
