Reading the spec. Seems simple enough, would anyone benefit from us adding that? Is anyone using that?

@Gargron If I remember correctly, SEO-multichannel publishers like Buffer send it, CMSes like Wordpress generate it, and search engines like Google consume it.

@aeveltstra Eh seriously? Are we definetely talking about the same thing?

@Gargron micro.blog is using it help.micro.blog/2017/indiewebc

@Gargron Possibly not! My memory fails me at times. I will check.

@Gargron Seems redundant with the Mastodon API, and if you're not supporting ActivityPub C2S then why also support Micropub?

@trwnh Micropub is a lot simpler than ActivityPub C2S

@Gargron Probably true but still redundant. Ultimately not harmful to add, I guess? I just can't see why, unless you were going for a multi-protocol approach.

@Gargron what do you have to say about this @manton ?

@nicktmro@mastodon.social @Gargron@mastodon.social I think Micropub in Mastodon is a great idea! It's a simple API (especially for posting) with support from a lot of different tools now.

@manton would the micro.blog iOS app be able to post to Mastodon if Eugen implements micropub?

@manton wow this would be so cool....kind of the missing piece for me in doing it all from my own domain. Between the micro.blog integration and possibility of micropub I am stoked!

@kevinmarks I'm wondering that too. If Mastodon also supports IndieAuth, then yes, it should just work. Otherwise might need some changes for signing in.

@kevinmarks Curious, wouldn't all the micropub clients be able to post to Mastodon if @gargon added micropub?

@manton Since Mastodon already supports OAuth 2, and all users already have a URL, adding IndieAuth to Mastodon would not be a huge leap.

@aaronpk Excellent. It would be great if it works with existing Micropub clients.

@Gargron@mastodon.social There are a bunch of great Micropub apps for the Web, iOS and Android so I definitely think it would be helpful to add Micropub support.
