Frank Meeuwsen's microblog

For all here fluent in the Dutch language (all 5 of you? ;-)), a short write up of my incredible adventures to incorporate Instagram on my site.…

I am looking for some help with micropub endpoints and OwnYourGram. I use this script on Github to have my own endpoint on my site. But now Instagram posts are posted to my Master branch and not to GH-Pages. Now what?

Pretty happy with my new Panobooks from Studio Neat.

Yesterday I learned about the existence of Oh My ZSH. Besides the coolest name in app history, it’s a incredible interesting framework to use in iTerm2 and learn more about shell, terminal and bash-files. A nice geeky evening it was!

hmmm.. for some reason the feed from my test microblog on Github doesn’t send the description. Just the title. No link as well.

I plan to write a Dutch blogpost on today/tomorrow. It depends on how proactive my daughter will be for herself with the preps for het xmas dinner at school ;-) Anyway, @manton are you available for a quote or perhaps some insights in first growth? Can I mail you?

I am looking for proper explanations or code-examples how to make a facepile of my webmentions. I use Jekyll on GH Pages. Any pointers are welcome!

The word Weblog turns 20 today. Here’s a small part of (Dutch) internethistory written in my weekly digest

Last Jedi. Excellent.


next thing to find out: Can I set the source of my blog to just the site directory of my Jekyll installation and upload that. As in a separate repository or something. Still learning this whole Github thing…

Working at home next to the xmas tree. Too much snow on the road…

This evening I read up on IOTA, a cryptocurrency for IoT devices. I think. I’m not sure what it is anymore since the articles I read are filled with hoopla on The Tangle (some sort of blockchain) and other hyped-up words. Anyone here familiar with IOTA to get me up to speed?

Is any of you familiar with Airtable? I think it’s a great app/spreadsheet/database to organize all sorts of stuff. I wrote a (dutch) blogpost on it.

1987 feels as far away for a 14 year old kid today just as 1957 did for me when I was 14 in 1987.


Utrecht gets a new central railway station and shopping mall. I drive by every day to get to work and I have to say I am really impressed how it’s gonna turn look.

I just added a JSON feed to my Jekyll based blog. Took me about five minutes. Without a plugin or difficult configuration. Incredible. if you want to add some Dutch blogposts to your media consumption 😂😂😂

Anyone with some Webmention experience here? I have the working someway somehow. But is it possible to delete webmentions from my site? On this post there is a test-webmention I did. Can I delete that? Where?

Next task: Why doesn’t my site show the Twitter avatars in the webmentions? See… as an example…. Euhm… can I webmention @voxpelli somehow from here?

Well…it turns out I just have to question this stuff, start over again and all of a sudden it works. A combination of Bridgy and seems to work. I still need to style everything but the basics work. Not quite sure how but hey…
