How to make your site Indieweb Friendly
If you're making a content hosting service (e.g. for blogging, photo posting, etc.) and want to be indieweb friendly and interoperate with indieweb sites, start with doing the following:
- Provide a way for users to enter a personal website/blog, and then automatically link to it from their profile page with rel=me.
- Markup users' feeds with the h-entry microformat including a nested h-card for the authorship information.
- Markup users' profile pages with h-card
- Let the user automatically syndicate in posts from their personal site
- Support PuSH notifications for receiving posts from their personal site
- Support parsing h-entry from their personal site posts to syndicate into your service
- Link permalinks back to users' original posts from syndicated copies on your service
- Use rel-canonical on links from syndicated copies on your service to original posts.
- Support webmention + h-entry parsing for receiving comments on users' posts.
- Provide a way for users to export all their user data (posts, comments, tags, likes/faves).
