Recently, I was thinking about adding a new feature to microblog.pub: the possibility to pull/subscribe to a RSS/JSON feed and create Article activities when a new post is published.

On the "public" website, it would show up as a link to the original post (like Mastodon is doing), but the AP object would contain the full post.

This way, your blog (#IndieWeb powered of course) would be able to fetch the replies/likes/shares collection of the Article and display it.

Any thoughts?

@fitheach It's because Mastodon won't fetch the existing activities from a remote instance when following someone.

microblog.pub is now generating and caching thumbnails for all attachments/actor icons.

Now the website is blazing fast \o/.

Just added counters in the header to display the number of notes/followers/following!
