Webmentiond: Get notified!

Last Friday I implemented a little feature into webmentiond that will notify you, the administrator or an instance, of newly verified mentions. When a new mention is received by the service, it will first go out and check if the source really links to one of your articles. If it does, then the service marks the mention as โ€œverifiedโ€ inside the database. Right after that, a notification email is sent out to every address specified with the --auth-admin-email flag.

Notification email with links to source and target

Please note that this feature has to be explicitly enable using the --send-notifications flag.

I wanted to add this simply because I tend to otherwise refresh the admin ui in my mobile browser far too often ๐Ÿ˜… If you want to give it a try, too, just download the latest release (binary or Docker) and set that flag when starting the server ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you want to give me feedback about this article? Please send it to comments@zerokspot.com.

Alternatively, I'm also experimenting with Webmentions. If you write a post on a blog that supports this technique, I should get notified about your link ๐Ÿ™‚
