From IndieWeb

birthdays is a feature on some social media silos that shows a summary view of others birthdays for today, recently, or soon, sometimes with how old they are, and UI to interact with them, sometimes with a daily notification of whose / how many people's birthday it is.

Silo Examples


  • Notification:

    Name-of-person and 3 others have birthdays today. Send them good thoughts!

    • needs screenshot


How could "birthdays" work in an indieweb way?

Reader Feature

Is a birthdays summary view a (special) reader feature (since you're already following people)?

Microsub Client

or a separate mini indieweb app that subscribes to your Microsub endpoint and just shows a birthdays view to interact with?
