The one thing missing from micropub clients is “quote tweets”. WP plus post-kinds plugin supports them, but not sure who else does.
That’s definitely something I’d like to add to iOS… I don’t really know how often I would use them though. And Micropub/mf2 is still a little confusing around implementation on those to me, and I’ve never felt the compulsion to look in-depth at it. (eddiehinkle.com/2018/09/04/7/r…)
@EddieHinkle Bridgy is the only way I know of doing it & it has a specific markup structure. That’s only real world experience I’ve had.
@EddieHinkle in this case was definitely push notification & ease of use.
@EddieHinkle honestly it’s so much easier to reply here than it is via my website. I wish that wasn’t the case, but I go with it because everything gets picked up on my site as a webmention anyway.
@cleverdevil, I’m with you on that one, I got so frustrated with trying to “indieweb-ify” my self-hosted WP install that I dumped it, migrated my domain to micro.blog and then deleted my old WP install, after exporting it all of course.
I think there’s still a ways to go with getting the IndieWeb integration with WP at a point where it could be described as “easy”. That said, I guess a lot of the issue is with the silos and their ever changing APIs, and technically, a self-hosted WP install is already on the IndieWeb, assuming you’re not using any of the silos and wanting to get replies from them.

@aaronpk yes, for now. Primarily due to two factors:
I get push notifications from the Micro.blog iOS app, which makes it super easy to see a reply, then quickly type out a response.
Properly including a @-mention that is hyperlinked in my reply isn’t easy from Together / Known.
@matpacker I’m delighted to have my site be self-hosted, but I still have a ways to go to get everything dialed in just how I like it.
@miklb Cool to see that progress is being made so quickly. I guess the true test will come when you can use almost any theme and still get the right results.
@cleverdevil Same here. I can add the correct HTML but my rss feed strips out the html so you only get the plain @ mention on micro.blog
