Here’s a quick run-through of how I retrieve and utilise Webmentions with my Eleventy website.
Lessons learned, pieces of wisdom (and folly), and other things I have to say after running a website blog for a while.
Fun stuff I’m proud of achieving on my website recently:
finished building and released eleventy-cache-webmentions as a working and publicly-avaliable Eleventy plugin, which automates retrieving and sorting of Webmentions as well as being as kind as possible to the Webmention.io API
For a long time I’ve been searching for a sound solution to storing the entire Webmention history of my blog, as packaging it up with the rest of the repository was not cutting it for me. Enter the world of async.
