If I were to replace pleroma with epicyon (big IF at this stage as I haven’t even installed it yet), I’d need to work out how to replace brid.gy in my indieweb process flow..

Currently, when I post a note, photo or blog post to my site the URL of the new post is sent to the brid.gy api and it maps microformats2 elements to their mastodon API equivalents and posts on my behalf to my pleroma account (via a custom OATH app that I had to create).

Direct replies and interactions are sent by brid.gy to my webmentions endpoint (and any other webmention capable sites mentioned) and a separate tool on my server outputs that to a json file and triggers a hugo site rebuild..

So, I would need to implement a method for posting to epicyon on my behalf (without an API) and then, monitor the post for interactions, convert into microformats2 compliant json messages and fire them off to my webmentions endpoint..

So.. has anyone with far more of a clue about this already created the solution that I would need?


Alternatively, if you do not have a webmentions enabled website then you can leave a message using the comment parade form below.

All going well, interactions will take a few minutes to appear, possibly longer due to .. gremlins.

I kinda want to spend what free time I can spare learning more about brewing.. this is a big time sync project that I don't think I have the capacity to take on in the near future..
