💬 Sending your First Webmention from Scratch

Replied to Sending your First Webmention from Scratch by Aaron PareckiAaron Parecki (Aaron Parecki)

Webmention is one of the fundamental indieweb building blocks. It enables rich interactions between websites, like posting a comment or favorite on one site from another site. This post will walk you through the simplest way to get started sending webmentions to other sites so that you can use your own site to join the conversations happening on the Indie Web.

Aaron, this is a really useful introduction to the mechanics of webmentions. Am I right in saying that Brid.gy does the job of the HTTP request?

I am intrigued about what would need to happen for webmention endpoints to become a standard with WordPress or will it always be slightly niche?

  1. Yep! For comments from Twitter, Bridgy creates the web page and sends the HTTP request so that you can receive a webmention from a tweet just like you can receive a webmention from a normal web page. Bridgy doesn’t help with sending webmentions tho.
