Yarns Microsub Server

Description

Yarns Microsub Server helps you follow feeds from across the Web. Enter a website and Yarns will help you find and subscribe to its feed(s) in several different formats (Microformats, RSS, Atom, JSONFeed). Once you’ve added feeds, new posts are collected in the background for you to read whenever you want.

Rather than viewing posts in Yarns itself, you can choose among several different apps to follow your feeds on your desktop or mobile device.

No matter which app you choose to view your feed, your replies will be posted on your own website.

Accompanied by other plugins that support IndieWeb standards, Yarns can help use your personal website as the centre of your online identity.

I've been using it with Together and Indigenous. So happy to have a Microsub server built into WordPress 😀
