I can now add location data to my notes! Though this isn’t being sent to Twitter yet.

It would help if I had updated the code on my live website.

Hopufully Tweeting works again? If so then the next task is geo-location

Maybe a note that doesn’t end in punctuation

Oh, I thought things were going well. Why did that not send?

I’m impressed how quickly my iPhone 5S charges!

Twitter integration is coming along nicely. :)

IndieWeb and POSSE

I’m trying to adhere to the IndieWeb principals, as my homepage states. The first step was to get the ability to create notes, or micro-blogging, and then syndicate these to other silos.

The most popular one by far, and the one I interact with most actually, is Twitter. So that’s what I’m looking to achieve initially, and then I can integrate support for other silos. Currently things are going well.

My code is capable of syndicating notes to Twitter with a permashortcitaction. If the note is too long it will ellide at the appropriate word boundary and then add a permalink to the note.

Further I can specify the URL of a particular tweet and the syndicated tweet will then be a reply to the original tweet. Allowing for threading on twitter.

This is done by combining two pieces of software. The main code that runs my site. This is where the actual interaction with Twitter occurs. The preparation work is done in my POSSE library. This is what creates the correctly formatted tweet and works out the reply to status id. I don’t think it’s ready for other people to use yet though. And there are still some features to be added.

My name is Jonny Barnes, and jonnybarnes.uk is my site. I’m from Manchester, UK .

I am active to varying degrees on several silos:

My usual online nickname is normally jonnybarnes for other services. I also syndicate my content to the IndieWeb friendly site micro.blog. Here’s a profile pic. I also have a PGP key, with fingerprint. You can email me at jonny at my domain, or message me on XMPP.
