OK who can help take Matt Mullenweg up on his offer to bring #Tumblr up to full #indieweb standards? cc: @humanetech

Not a joke: this is a very real opportunity... #openweb

@tchambers @humanetech

I'm really interested in integrating Tumblr into open source standards, but I'm having trouble picturing how that would work effectively. Has there been cases of monolithic platforms having an effective integration? Does content flow into Tumblr on a per-blog/inbox basis?

If any web engineers want to collab I'd be delighted to talk! I work at Tumblr and am already thinking about how to do this, but lack experience.

hi @tchambers @humanetech @cdevroe @django!! following up on this, i grabbed the official Tumblr Theme (which any user can access the markup of!) and threw it in a gist here: gist.github.com/ChaosExAnima/0

also found this, which may be helpful: indieweb.org/Tumblr

we have little bandwidth right now, but i'm happy to take any changes y'all make and internally open a PR to get that merged in to prod. once up, this should hit ~385 million blogs :meowcowboy:

@chaosexanima @tchambers @humanetech @cdevroe @django The Tumblr page there is a good place to look.
Adding microformats markup to the default template would be great. If you do that, do add a CI test to check that it's still there for future redesigns - that was done for Mastodon's h-entry markup. github.com/mastodon/mastodon/p
The indiewebify.me tool is good for checking the markup, but test with an existing parser for your CI

@chaosexanima @tchambers @humanetech @cdevroe @django PS I made this a while back when tumblr's previous owners were adding interstitials - I assume that is no longer needed? tumblelog.xyz/

@kevinmarks I have no idea to be honest. What do you mean by oauth interstitial?

@chaosexanima Oath, not OAuth - the verizon-owned nag screen.
Looks like there is still one for tumblr.com but not for own domain, but it is a lot less intrusive.

@kevinmarks yeah sorry, autocorrect on my phone. We definitely shouldn't have anything Verizon, Tumblr was sold to Automattic in late 2019.

@chaosexanima
Which would be more helpful for you, a set of issues in the github repo, or a narrative on what we'd like to see to make Tumblr more interoperable on the wiki?

@kevinmarks GitHub repo please! The issues I'm seeing in the repo are already great 💯

@kevinmarks @tchambers @humanetech @cdevroe @django

Hey all! This has been merged: xray.p3k.app/parse?url=https:/

We're going to announce it on the Changes blog tomorrow. @kevinmarks, how would you like to be credited? any site you want linked, or handle you use?

@chaosexanima sorry I missed this - Linking my name Kevin Marks and kevinmarks.com is fine, and I see you linked the repo which makes sense - I hope to keep that up to date with other tests and markup changes - the repost isn't quite right in all contexts at the moment.

@kevinmarks bold of you to assume we have any real tooling around themes... 😹

but this is really helpful for when we ever open source the theme!
