meetup-mf2.jvt.me release 0.2.0: Adding h-feed support

In August I announced a Microformats API for Meetup.com: meetup-mf2.jvt.me to act as a translation layer between the silo and the IndieWeb.

I've been using this as a core part of my own workflow for RSVPing to events, but that's usually when I see the event actually on Meetup.com and then manually RSVP from my website.

To make it so I could discover new events from my Indie reader, it would be really nice to have an h-feed.

With the v0.2.0 release (now in production!) this is now available for usage, which you can do with the following request to get the upcoming events for a given Meetup.com group:

GET https://meetup-mf2.jvt.me/Tech-Nottingham/events

Because this exposes an Microformats2 JSON feed, it should be possible to subscribe to a given Meetup.com group.

Note: If you're trying to use it with Aperture, there's a PR that needs to be merged before it'll work. This is now works with Aperture!

Another thing to note is that this will only show upcoming events for a given group - hopefully that's all you need, but feel free to use the issue tracker if you want the option.
