Converting Webmentions to Push Notifications (2 mins read).
Automagically sending push notifications to my mobile phone when I receive a Webmention.
Sending Webmentions More Intelligently (2 mins read).
Updating my post-deployment tooling to only send Webmentions when they've not already been accepted (or rejected).
Well, I think I've cracked it - after a few weeks of on-and-off work on making my webmention sending not spam everyone (see https://www.jvt.me/posts/2019/10/30/reader-mail-webmention-spam/ ) - it's now not re-sending them if they're successful. This is a good first step, but I'll be improving it to re-send if the post's data has changed since last time it tried (in the future).
Note that this isn't quite done yet, expect it to be live tomorrow perhaps.
Thanks for blogging about your experiences, it's really great to see, especially because it was through me you've been interested in it!
If you get a chance, come and talk to us on the IndieWeb chat (more details on https://indieweb.org/discuss )
