As part of expanding the functionality of the software my site runs on, I thought it was about time to start showing inline content when I post links in notes.
You are probably already familiar with this idea from Twitter's implementation of "Twitter Cards" as well as how Facebook displays content inline in the News Feed.
Rather than respond individually to the replies on App.net, I thought it would be more appropriate to respond collectively with another post.
I am no longer publishing content to my App.net account until I can syndicate my content to their service without writing a single line of code.
I should not have to write custom code to publish to App.net. App.net should be able to pull in content from my own site using my Atom/hAtom feeds, receiving real-time updates I send via PubSubHubbub.
Lately I've been doing a lot of development in Ruby, specifically with Sinatra and Sequel, and I've been liking that development stack a lot. So much so, that when I switch back to PHP for a project, I wish my PHP stack was more like my Ruby stack.
I managed to put together a few PHP projects that result in a very similar framework, described below.
