Members of the 🕸💍 IndieWeb Webring now have a new way to find one another, and show off!
That’s right, this 🕸💍 IndieWeb Webring now has a directory showcasing profiles of active sites in the ring! Where possible, it shows name, photo, and short bio in addition to the site’s URL (and of course their
potentially problematic cute emoji ID).
That is a bunch of jargon, to be sure, but what it means is that you with a few tweaks to your homepage, you can make info like your name, photo, and a bio – which is probably already displayed for people to see – readable by machines that understand microformats2, like this one!
Visit the your 🕸💍 webring dashboard (you’ll need to log in) and click the “Check for updated profile” button.
Try out your page in the indiewebify.me validator. If it shows you that it found a “representative h-card”, then your page should work for the webring directory!
I went ahead and pre-loaded the profile info for all registered and active sites! I don’t plan to do that again.
Sorry about that! You can remove yourself by visiting your 🕸💍 webring dashboard (you’ll need to log in) and click the “Remove my profile” button.
I was inspired by Grant’s IndieWeb Directory, Aaron’s Microcast.club, this 🕸💍 review by Brad Enslen, and more. Basically: surfing around a webring with next and previous links is good fun, and it’s even more fun to see so many folks excited about the IndieWeb in one place!
Yes! There are also now individual profile pages, if that’s something you want to link to. My webring emoji ID is 🚯, so my profile can be found at: 🕸💍.ws/🚯
I don’t know yet how these pages might evolve so I welcome your feedback!
Looking forward to my first Homebrew Website Club since moving to NYC!
This inline website editor by Grant is looking very exciting! Powered entirely by IndieWeb building blocks: microformats (to understand the content on your page) and micropub (to make new posts and edits).
Really looking forward to the 100% segments show. 😜
Unfortunately I won’t be there in person, but I am looking forward to remotely attend IWC Austin 2019 via livestream and chat!
A more animated Maki!
All site plumbing: replaced!
