Micropub and WordPress: Custom Posting Applications
The W3C recommended Micropub specification (2017) allows developers to create custom posting applications for a wide variety of data targeting any content management system that supports the spec.
I will provide an overview of the setup and use of the available plugin and endpoint for WordPress. I’ll also provide a beginner walk-though for a variety of client applications like Quill, Teacup, OwnYourGram, OwnYourSwarm, Omnibear, and others that allow one to easily post status updates, bookmarks, likes, check-ins/location data, photos, and more directly to their WordPress sites.
We’ll also talk about how developers can create custom posting interfaces to drastically simplify content creation and posting for clients in ways that can be even simpler and more flexible than working with Gutenberg.
My talk on “Micropub and WordPress: Custom Posting Applications” will take place on from –

Testing out the new Omnibear interface. It is really slick looking! I like some of the small UI tweaks to the authentication process as well. Much more intuitive than before.
