Today I got to join vHWC-Europe with Jeremy Cherfas, Sven Knebel, and Chrin Burnell. We discussed the upcoming IWC-Berlin and the cool stuff we think folks might build.
I was also finishing up the #el30 lesson on Docker and containers.
Then Jeremy and I discussed the pros and cons of my migration away from WordPress and returning home to Known where the IndieWeb has always just worked for me.
Jeremy agreed as he has run his podcast sites through Known and was debating going full board with Grav but likes the simplicity and ease of Known just working. Felt it was worth his tradeoff of maintaining to CMS.
I am going with a social stream combined with a static homepage: https://github.com/jgmac1106/homepage I did decide I will do some long-form writing from flat HTML files (I wanna full control of my CSS to do weird stuff). Does mean I need to figure out authentication with indielogin and will have to manually maintain in XML file (finally get what DRY means)
In terms of Known Jeremey and I talked about stuff we want to work on with the community:
- html entities in the status updates (high priority)
- styling comments and webmentions in themes
- creating plugins for read and listen posts.
I will be remoting into IWC-Berlin and beyond my goal of redoing the Getting Started with WordPress page I hope to leave with my first Idno plugin....It won't be a webmention badges yet....probably just take @cleverdevil's Watch plugin and see if I can hack a listen and read.
