Using FreshRSS to “Like” blog posts via Webmention

Using FreshRSS to “Like” blog posts via Webmention by ruk.ca (ruk.ca)

Although it took some fiddling to make all this happens, now that the fiddling is fiddled, it just works: I click the star in FreshRSS and the favourite appears on this list, in this RSS feed, and, should the blog I favourited the link from support Webmentions, as a “like” on the original post.

Peter, this is excellent work. I love how these IndieWeb technologies can enhance a website. Out of curiosity, I’ll take a look at FreshRSS but I doubt that many RSS readers support it. Maybe someday, things like this will be trivial for the non-technologist (aka people who don’t do their own oil changes).

I work in application security architecture and I live in Montgomery Township, New Jersey with my wife Bhavna. Passionate about photography, you’ll find me writing about cybersecurity, tropical aquariums, terrariums, hiking, craft breweries, and capturing birds on camera. My prose is like a caffeinated squirrel—fast, unpredictable, and occasionally insightful.
