Now that I have a very basic but working Micropub client, I can start shaping it as a personal and what I call narrow bandwith tool.
What such personal and narrow bandwith use cases do I currently see?
- Add it at the back of hacky script to post things from my FreshRSS reader, so it can post automatically and smoothly
- Use it to post to this site, while reading feeds using YARNS in another WP instance for which a different access token is used. I probably should write this up in a bit more detail to explain the reasons for it
- Have a basic local webform I can fill out and hit publish on.
- Be able to post directly from one of my notes in Obsidian, meaning I would be able to both write material to post there, or hit publish on an existing note.
Of this first list the last two immediately appeal to me. I should probably do the local form first, and then look at posting directly from notes (which may well need that form under the hood).
Btw this and the other postings of the past days were made using the Micropub client, by writing them directly in the script that posted them. Good for proof of concept, but not a long term low friction solution. 😀
