What is an indieweb creator?

indieweb

Main article: indieweb

The indieweb is about owning your domain and using it as your primary identity.

  • You can have more than one such personal domain.
  • You could use your own domain for purely a professional identity facet, preferring to keep anything personal off the internet/web. That's totally fine.

creator

Being a creator means you must do one or more of:

  • code. create or contribute to indieweb open source projects
  • design. create or contribute to indieweb designs, graphic, layout, adaptive or otherwise.
  • ux. create wireframes or other indieweb user interface flows

As an indieweb creator, you must be using the things you create (code, design, ux) on your personal site. If it's not good enough for you, then it's not good enough for the indieweb.

sharing

Lastly, one of the goals of IndieWebCamp is to empower each other and interoperability among our sites, encouraging re-use of code, design, ux and thus:

You must share at least some part of what you create.

You don't have to share the entirety of what you create or even most of it.

Just find some part of it that it at least minimally useful, and that you're ok with sharing.

It's ok to start small, even just a function or two, or some graphics files, or UX flow diagrams, or even just wiki design descriptions e.g. URL designs, and slowly add to it over time.

The point is to take something that is powering or has empowered your indieweb site, that you work on, develop, improve, create, and share it with others, in the hopes that it will help empower and improve their indieweb sites.
