I also keep a curated collection of personal websites I stumble across (not necessarily all IndieWeb) via Are.na: https://www.are.na/nick-simson/the-art-of-the-personal-website
http://yooooo.ooo -> personal website alias
http://yoo.ooo -> serendipitous
^^ love both of these

TOPIC: make a post about a garden pest, then "remind me in 10 months"
TOPIC: distributed search
- shared indices
- delegate searches

This can also extend to twitter users with large followings
- "This is a companion repository for my typeface Fern Ornaments, which is available Font of the Month Club June 2021 issue along with Fern Text ... The python script in this repository will parse input text to create patterns and borders using Fern Ornaments with specific dimensions and size."
I'd like to think more about how to display images on my website. Right now I have a post type called "photo," which just means that the primary content of focus is an image. I plan on having photo posts that have n photos, and even videos mixed in ("instagram style"). My general philosophy has been to define my own intended behavior, test it, and then start to mix in IndieWeb tech on my own terms, so I'm feeling like I need to imagine what I want out of these photo posts before I spend time integrating the micropub side of things for example.
ideas for gallery
- I want a sort of gallery overlay that can be opened by clicking on the image previews displayed in the post.
- Captions for each image
- Accessibility concerns for homebrew image gallery?
- That reminds me that I may also want to develop a sort of "slide deck" wrapper for general use, and then tailor it for image galleries, actual slideshows, zines/books
Webmentions - interested in doing emoji reactions
MicroPub - codepen/codesandbox-like posts for a micropub server, and a micropub client to develop them Server setup - Ubuntu and Docker Compose
Maybe related to the medium article from above
- https://github.com/cblgh/lieu - left an issue :) https://github.com/cblgh/lieu/issues/3
I've thought a bit about code formatting and text animations, which might be related to the codepen idea above:
- I love the idea of displaying code output in a post. Maybe this could be done with RMarkdown or Jupyter, though formatting the output for your own site might be difficult.
