Webmentions Content Engine

December - 2020

NOTE This is a work in progress. It's the seed of an idea. We'll see where it goes and how it grows...


Goal:

Create an open web content pointing to system (can't come up with a better word right now because it's late.)

Basic idea:

  • Use pinboard.in as a source of link

  • Provide access to recent and popular by default.

  • Let folks search for tags they want to add.

  • Provide a way to remove sites/terms via block lists

  • Wire up webmentions to produce a content feed based off upvotes.

  • Add in Sentiment Analysis for the rankings.

  • Some pinboard links will be just links and titles, setup a crawler to pull descriptions from the pages. similar to search engine results pages

  • Crawl the web to find RSS feeds to pull in.

  • Analyze the pages to provide recommendations based off magic.
