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: https://gist.github.com/ChaosExAnima/09e8b4611915888f7fe88b890b4f419a
also found this, which may be helpful: https://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
@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. https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/pull/1063
The indiewebify.me tool is good for checking the markup, but test with an existing parser for your CI
@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.
