My personal site now includes its first line of JavaScript, to pull in micro.blog updates on their own page: angelostavrow.com/updates/

@AngeloStavrow Very nice, and something I'd like to do for my personal site. Can you give a tutorial, or link?

@antonzuiker Thanks! It was actually pretty straightforward; I used the information here to pull in the latest updates, and added some custom CSS to the microblog_post and microblog_time.

@AngeloStavrow I have used the Sidebar.js to pull in the latest updates, but I don't know how to customize the CSS styles...microblog_post, etc. Quick tutorial possible? Thank you.

@crossingthethreshold I threw together a quick little Glitch app to show how I do it here: glitch.com/~microblo...

I added a couple of comments in style.css to show what CSS rules target what elements in the feed. At the bottom of the embed you can click on "Both" and make changes to the code in style.css and see it update live in the app itself. Feel free to remix and play around!
