Implemented GPS based location checkins on my Drupal site #IndieWeb

I am obsessed with location tracking. I started using Foursquare more than 10 years ago on my Blackberry phone. I loved that app. It is still one of my favourite application. It was very popular for couple of years but then after the smart phone revolution (post Blackberry phase) I guess Foursquare lost its shine but they came back with their new service Swarm. I have not really restarted using Foursquare to the fullest yet however since the last few months I have been hooked to the IndieWeb principles.

Just installed Known CMS

I installed Known CMS last night quickly. It took me 10 mins flat to install it on my webfaction hosting. So far I like it.

Just couple of days back I setup Hugo which is a static site generator written in Go Language. I really like it.

Although this blog is my primary site which I will continue to use as it is a Drupal based site.

The weather has changed dramatically in the past few days. This week there was sun for few days which is a surprise and it actually helped in changing the mood.

I just finished configuring linkback module on this site. So now you should be able to link to the blog and notes on this site and it will receive those webmention.

Pretty cool stuff and it tool me 4-5 days to configure and understanding how it works.

I am thinking of writing a detailed documentation around it.

I am becoming a firm believer of #indieweb these days

Couple of days back I posted my POSSE plan for this website. One thing I managed to do was to make some changes on the site and posting quite regularly on this site and syndicating on linkedin and twitter.

I also made some changes on the site so that the images I upload are properly picked up on both of these social sites using the Open Graph and twitter cards.

Recently I came across this post from Dries that also inspired me to change the approach I follow to post on social networking sites.
