QR codes

Created by on October 6

QR codes are 2D barcodes that have had a mixed success with usability, from nearly ignored (see the Tumblr mocking this), to partially successful (Path add friend UI), to invisibly useful (Snapchat add friend UI).

dobrado logo

dobrado is a multi user content management system that supports many indieweb features.



dobrado aims to be easy to use without any technical knowledge. Editing pages does not require templates or css files.

dobrado aims to fully support indieweb building blocks and protocols as they develop.

dobrado was created by Malcolm Blaney, and is released under the AGPL.


dobrado was started as an experimental project to build a content management system that didn't use any templates. Similar types of systems were known as "online site editors" or "website builders", but such features are integrated into many systems today.

While ease of editing is still a primary goal, it's use in other projects has seen it mature into a group collaboration tool with it's own fine grained permission system.


dobrado is an extensible, modular, multi user system written in PHP and Javascript.

There are many modules already available for a variety of tasks. They are all installable through the web interface.

It has wiki-like features, users can grant permission for other users (or groups of users) to copy and edit their pages.

Features specific to the indieweb:

  • Posts can send and receive webmentions and have webactions set via indie-config.
  • Users can set a web action handler on the page they choose to write from.
  • Users can choose to send their likes, shares and replies to different feeds from their normal posts.
  • Users are notified about likes, shares and replies via a notification system.
  • Replies are converted into native comments on posts.
  • The Reader module can subscribe to both traditional feeds and html pages marked up with microformats.
  • When the Reader module is combined with the Writer module, all items in the feed show inline web actions for likes, shares and replies. After the action is performed, the Reader module automatically scrolls you back to where you were reading.

IndieWeb Examples

  • is an example of dobrado set up as both an indieweb reader and publishing site for multiple users.

AMP is Accelerated Mobile Pages, a Google-led project that speeds up a subset of HTML through caching and dependencies on google:


IndieWeb Support

The pull request by Aaron Parecki adds h-entry support to AMP example(s) and thus makes AMP more IndieWeb friendly by default


XML like fragility

It appears that initial implementation(s) of AMP HTML consuming code treat it similarly to old XML consuming code, which is to fail in a fragile way, e.g. as noted in

IndieWebCamp Nuremberg 2016

The first IndieWebCamp in Nuremberg, but just one of many IndieWebCamps!

The importance of owning your data is getting more awareness. To grow it and help people gettings started, we're meeting for a bar-camp like collaboration in Nuremberg for two days of brainstorming, working, teaching, helping.

Join us during the Nuremberg Web Week 2016 and learn how to use open web technologies to empower and – maybe more importantly – encourage users to own their own content and identities.
