As mentioned earlier, I use Workflow for posting #indieweb likes and replies. This is in conjunction with the Likes and Replies WordPress plugin I have been blogging about over the past weeks.

There are two separate Workflows which are actually pretty simple - one for each action.

Likes

The like flow is intended to be triggered from Safari so is set up an Action Extension. When I'm on a page I want to like I go to Share > Run Workflow and select the 'Post a Like' flow. This takes the URL as the input, asks me to comment then simply posts to WordPress with the URL passed as a custom field.

The plugin then takes over and uses the custom field to add a properly formatted link to the start of the post.

For my own benefit, the flow also gets the page name and displays it just so I can check what is going to show in the post, but that's not essential and doesn't affect the actual process.

Replies

The Reply flow is also an Action Extension but acts a little differently.

It accepts text as the main input so I write the reply in Drafts, share it using the flow which then prompts me for the URL I am replying to and passes it as a custom field.

Again, the plugin takes over and adds the reply link to the start of the post content.

And that's how this post was published.
