@cambridgeport90 Is what an app of some sort? Newsblur? Yes, a rather good RSS (and email newsletter) feed reader. Or is this a swipe at my comment about Pipes that I am failing to fully appreciate?
@jeremycherfas Every time I use NewsBlur (every day) I am irritated that there isn't a method to share stories directly from my feed reader to Micro.blog. Thanks for caring about it too!
@jeremycherfas @cygnoir Unless and until Newsblur were to support Micropub, I notice that it does have IFTTT support, so one might be able to carefully write some recipes that allows some functionality to dovetail with any website that has a micropub endpoint. I’ve documented some similar work I did using IFTTT to get the Inoreader feed reader to post reads, bookmarks, and replies to others’ sites to my WordPress website using micropub. I would abandon Inoreader for a reader with good Micropub support.
@jeremycherfas I’m not using it at the moment but if I remember right, Feedbin can share to M.B. Though not automatically. Not sure if that helps now.
@svenseebeck possibly so. The point that @chrisaldrich made in more detail than I did is that Micropub would enable sharing even more widely. Any of the current feed readers could do it if they chose to.
@dejus Did a quick search of the NNW repo and from a layman's perspective it looks promising. I know Manton is always willing to offer help where he can with this kind of thing, plus there's the Snippets framework and the Posting API document.
Sorry if this isn't helpful; just a few guesses from a non-programmer. 😅
@issimonwoods thanks, some good starting points there. I'll investigate further, and see what I can do.
@dejus Hi there! I'm wondering if you've had time to take a look at this. Sign me, She who revives old M.b threads. 😆
