Webmention Analytics | Max Böck

If you also use webmention.io to show webmentions on your site, you can fork the code on Github and make your own instance of webmention-analytics. Just follow the instructions in the README to get started.

Wondering about how webmentions would work on IPFS hosted sites? If there is no domain name to link the webmention to, then it simply won't work. An IPFS webmention would have to look at the content's CID hash instead to function. In theory this would actually be a much more precise way of identifying to what content a webmention belongs to; but in practice it would be hard as the CID change with every byte the content changes with. So a different approach would have to rely on the path set by the IPNS. The challenge there is that we can also use _dyndns txt entries. To be investigated.

James Tomasino wrote about his experience with implementing Webmentions on his Gopher blog.
To bridge my webmention from HTTP to Gopher, I'm web-mentioning his post through the Floodgap Gopher proxy. If you're using Lynx or another Gopher-capable browser, open his post here: gopher://gopher.black:70/phlog/20191223-webmentions-and-microsub

The Test

How to test is explained on this webmention.rocks test: https://webmention.rocks/delete/1

This test verifies that you properly send Webmentions when you delete a post. You will pass this test when you send a Webmention to a URL that you had previously mentioned in a post.

  1. Write a post that links to this page, and send Webmentions for your post.
  2. Verify you see your post as "pending" on this page.
  3. Delete your post, and ensure that the post's URL is now returning HTTP 410 (or a meta http-equiv 410 status).
  4. Send a Webmention to this page again.

You should see your post listed here in the green "Successful Tests" section when complete.
