Recently, I was thinking about adding a new feature to microblog.pub: the possibility to pull/subscribe to a RSS/JSON feed and create Article activities when a new post is published.

On the "public" website, it would show up as a link to the original post (like Mastodon is doing), but the AP object would contain the full post.

This way, your blog (#IndieWeb powered of course) would be able to fetch the replies/likes/shares collection of the Article and display it.

Any thoughts?

@dev It's interesting. Would this mean that even a static website could be able to fetch replies/likes/shared, making it a AP-based commenting system, while at the same time it would publish on the micropub account the summary of the article and a link to it? I was thinking of something like this lately
