I thought I was the only one seeing this! Fortunately I've got https://granary.io producing #Microformats feeds so I can still read Twitter from the https://indieweb.org/reader I want


Folks who follow my blog's #Microformats feed will now see the context (as an h-cite) that is visible on my site, allowing you to have some context for at least interactions with Twitter, but hopefully other stuff in the future!

Agree that some users won't want to get stuck into it - they're likely also the users who won't be writing raw HTML for their sites.

So what we're doing for them is getting Microformats2 support directly into the themes for WordPress, Jekyll, Hugo, etc, so anyone using it can benefit without necessarily doing any work!

As shared in a separate comment in the thread, there's the Microformats2 specification (see https://microformats.io) which reduces duplication seen with some of the other Semantic Web formats.

You can see an example of a parsing result at http://php.microformats.io/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.jvt.me%2Fmf2%2F2020%2F01%2F2mylg%2F which produces a standardised structure for the resulting JSON, which makes interconnectivity much simpler.

Us folks in the IndieWeb (https://indieweb.org) have been using it for some time with great benefit, but it's always great to hear others reactions too!


The future of the web, isn't the web

A good read by Terence about how the Semantic Web and using metadata (be it Schema.org, microdata or Microformats) will build a more usable and interconnected life

I think at https://www.jvt.me/events/homebrew-website-club-nottingham/2019/09/18/ tonight I'm going to write a how-to for setting up your first h-card, similar to https://www.jvt.me/posts/2019/08/21/rsvp-from-your-website/
