I have read this but could not figure out where is the micro.blog code on github, any hint?
The micro.blog service is not open source. You cannot run micro.blog on your own server.
Understood, meanwhile Manton has replied to me on micro.blog and said the project at some point will be released as open-source code but only when it’s ready !
And for anyone wanting to transition to self-host, the process is to export the entire blog archive and then import it back into a Hugo static site project, so in some way, content portability and moving to selfhost is already a reality !
A few folks have tried the workaround for setting up a local environment, for sure. For example, Mandaris Moore covered this in his series of posts detailing the creation of his blog’s theme.
Wow. When this does happen, good Gods. Should open up an entire world of possibilities!
Thanks! It’s going to be interesting for sure. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the best structure for open-sourcing the core platform. Pretty excited and hope to have something to share later this year.
