I'm working on building the following building blocks of the Indie Web

I'm building indieweb functionality into my personal site, p3k

figured out

Things I feel like I've figured out pretty well, have shipped on my own site, can depend on, and am available to help explain to others.


Below are some general itches that are before the stage of turning into action items for p3k or other projects. For a more immediate list of things that will end up in my site soon, see: p3k#Itching

  • Checkins - I still haven't begun posting checkins on my website, the last major missing piece of my use of silos. Some details:
    • Support basic checkins with photos, like checking in on Swarm
    • Venues should get their own URLs on my site so I can see all checkins I've posted at a venue
    • Create "lists" of venues, with tips specific to the entry in the list (example)
    • Show lists grouped by city, like Foursquare
    • Allow people to subscribe to notifications of my checkins at either particular regions of a map, or particular venues (e.g. let me know when you get to this area during the bar crawl)
  • Monocle - an IndieWeb reader modeled after how I live in IRC
  • Shoebox - a photo/media server, used as a Media Endpoint and to replace my use of Flickr, and Soundcloud
  • community event calendar/aggregator
  • private groups - wanting to communicate privately with some group of people. Since 2014 I have been finding private/secret Facebook groups very useful for certain things. How does this translate onto our individual sites?
  • Mention App
  • archive to wayback machine
    • some time after publishing posts on my site, send a ping to the wayback machine to trigger archiving it
    • send a ping for any pages that I link to
  • gopher server for IndieNews as a follow-up to

projects that need to be renamed

I've had a bad habit of naming projects after the spec they implement. It has become apparent that this has caused more confusion than it has benefits. The worst case of this is, since it conflates the spec with the service that I run.

  • (issue)
  • (issue)
    • receives webmentions for you
    • provides an API (and potentially a UI in the future) for displaying webmentions

private posts

Some brainstorming on private posts:

  • I want to let people log in to my site, and then they can see things that are not posted publicly.
  • Should additional posts appear on my home page once someone is signed in?
  • Should there be a separate feed of posts that are visible only to the person who is signed in?
  • I want to make some posts visible to groups of people, but might not want them to know which group they're in.
  • Need some way to visually indicate that a post is not public, so that people know they should not share it as they would a public post. (screenshot or otherwise)
  • Some posts I want to show the context they are posted in (e.g. POSSEing photos of my cat in the #animals channel in the XOXO Slack), but this applies also to public posts
