IndieWeb Link Sharing

Max Böck:

Posting a new short “note” on my site currently requires me to commit a new markdown file to the repository on Github. That’s doable (for a developer), but not really convenient, especially when you’re on the go and just want to share a quick link.

It me.

The new link sharing basically has three main parts:

  • a small Javascript bookmarklet to act as a “share button”
  • a form that collects and sends the shared link data, and
  • a serverless function to process it and create a new file.

Gotta get on this train! I’m already working on it, though my solution will be based on the Micropub spec. But that live preview is sweet and now I want it too.
