Over three years ago I spent a long weekend building my very own, basic but functional webmentions implementation. When I switched the site to Hugo from my homegrown pile of static-blog-building scripts last year, I put rebuilding webmention support way, way on the back burner, and never got back around to it.
I really wasn’t fully geared up to make that system work with Hugo, so today with this writeup from Daniel Goldsmith I used the webmention endpoint from Pelle Wessman, to rebuild all of that functionality in a couple of hours!1
It should now be easy to post comments here via any system that will send webmentions, such as one’s own indieblog site, as well as via replies to entries that are syndicated to my micro.blog feed. This is cool!
- Looks like I have a couple of metadata/microformat adjustments to make so that my mentions appear correctly on the other side. Stand by. [return]
