Blotpub Now Supports Likes and Replies
Since I introduced blotpub a couple of days back, I have been continuously posting to the site from different Micropub clients. And I am happy that the system worked well. Added satisfaction was provided by the community by expressing interest and openness to try the endpoint out.As I had mentioned in that post, handling “the creation of like and reply post types” was next on the list. I just couldn’t live with the fact that the endpoint didn’t handle these simple post types. So, it had to be addressed. And it is addressed now —
The information is added as properties
like-of to the post metadata.
Earlier, file creation date was used as the post date. The enhancement was discussed with @jack as part of this git issue. With this version, if the published date is provided, it would be set in the metadata. Else date-time for post creation request would be used. To enable this, just set
SET_DATE environment variable to
true. Additionally, you can also set the
TZ variable to override default timezones for the server hosting your endpoint. Refer to the
README for more details.
I have also fixed some minor issues in handling the post creation via different clients, mainly Micro.blog iOS client.
What’s next? Handling of image files.
