Adding Webmentions to Jekyll by Jordan MerrickJordan Merrick (jordanmerrick.com)

I've added some basic support for webmentions to my Jekyll-powered site using webmention.io and this Jekyll plugin. If any of my posts are mentioned elsewhere and my site receives a webmention, it's displayed below the post content.

This seems so convoluted. Run Jekyll (or another static site generator) because dynamic platforms like WordPress are slow and bloated. But ... now the website can't support comments or Webmentions. So hook the site into a silo like Disqus or Webmention.io. But wait now your website is dependent on a third-party.

Doesn't it seem like we should be 100% independent?

  1. @gio can you point me in the right direction to trouble-shoot this type of error?

    Too often the focus of security is on protecting the IT systems that process and store the vast majority of information, rather than on the information itself. However, given the various threats facing businesses and organisations, this approach is too narrow to accomplish the level of integration, process assurance and overall protection that is required.

    My focus is on the strategic alignment of information security with business strategy to support organisational governance objectives, the use of risk management by executing appropriate measures to manage and mitigate risks and reduce potential impacts on information resources to an acceptable level and optimising information security investments in support of organisational objectives.

  2. @gio so ... setting up and using Hugo not as easy as the doco makes it seems. Most of the theme I tried from the git repository are broken and Hugo can’t build the site.

  3. @khurt Just in case you're looking for additional input... My two favorite things about Hugo: One, It's a single binary with no dependencies and two, it is fast as hell.

  4. @khurt I’m feeling with you. Want to add web mentions as well. But for this I need an active part on the web again. Completely against the idea of using Jekyll in the first place.
