I was at IndieWebCamp Edinburgh last week and during the hack day I created a Matrix Application Service (AS) which could act as an IndieWeb Micropub client. Any Matrix message sent to the AS (
@micropub:domain) would be converted to a request to a Micropub endpoint.
This required the AS to support IndieAuth - which it does by sending
!indieauth http://yourdomain.dom to
@micropub:domain which then returns an OAuth2 URL to login via. Currently, the AS just supports a 1:1 mapping from
h:entry but in the future, it can be expanded to include categories and potentially the reverse mapping (where Micropub clients can act as Matrix users!).
Overall, it was a great weekend and I look forward to adding more support for IndieWeb protocols in the future.
The Foundation needs you
The Matrix.org Foundation is a non-profit and only relies on donations to operate. Its core mission is to maintain the Matrix Specification, but it does much more than that.
It maintains the matrix.org homeserver and hosts several bridges for free. It fights for our collective rights to digital privacy and dignity.Support us
