  - "Designing an IndieWeb Reader Based on How I Read Social Media"

content-type: text/markdown

In the current world of silos dominating the social media space, people
typically have to visit half a dozen websites or apps to see all the latest
content from friends. At this point I'm sick of this "multiple inbox" model
that I want to find an alternative as fast as possible.

Currently I open my usual social media sites (Instagram, Twitter and Facebook,
in that order) and read the home timeline only as a last resort. Below is an
attempt to document the primary ways I find things online so that I can
consider how I want my [IndieWeb reader]( to
present content to me.

### Twitter keyword search
I have a persistent streaming search from running, looking for
specific keywords. These tweets get sent to various IRC channels I am in.
The keywords are usually words associated with specific projects.


Similar to [p3k](, I will be writing as much of Monocle as
separate libraries that can be re-used by other projects. To give you an
idea of what this looks like, here is the list of separate modules I've
written or contributed to that p3k uses.

* [php-mf2]( - a PHP Microformats 2 parser
* [php-mf2-twitter-shim]( - Converts a single tweet to a microformats h-entry
* [mention-client-php]( - A PHP client to send webmentions and pingbacks
* [Timezone-API]( - An API to find the timezone at a latitude and longitude
* [php-comments]( - Helper for parsing and presenting comments from external sites
* [link-rel-parser-php]( - Parse HTTP Link headers into a structured format
* [indieauth-client-php]( - Sample implementation and helper methods for an IndieAuth client
* [date-formatter-php]( - Render dates and date ranges in a human-readable format, including proper microformats-2 markup
