eleventy-plugin-webmentions

A plugin for eleventy to fetch and filter webmentions from Webmention.io.

Install

Available on npm.

npm install --save-dev eleventy-plugin-webmentions

Usage

In your Eleventy config file (probably .eleventy.js), load the plugin module and use .addPlugin to add it to Eleventy with an options object that defines the domain and the Webmention.io token. Like this:

const Webmentions = require("eleventy-plugin-webmentions");

module.exports = function (eleventyConfig) {
  eleventyConfig.addPlugin(Webmentions, {
    domain: "lukeb.co.uk",
    token: "ABC123XYZ987",
  });
};

REMEMBER: You’re only allowed one module.exports in your configuration file, so make sure you only copy the require and the .addPlugin lines above! (Including the configuration options)

The plugin then adds 2 global data objects. One is called webmentionsLastFetched and is a Date object with the date that the plugin last fetched webmentions, and the other is called webmentions and is an array of webmention objects that look similar to this:

{
  type: 'entry',
  author: {
    type: 'card',
    name: 'Zach Leatherman',

  'wm-received': '2022-05-13T00:05:16Z',
  'wm-id': 1397424,
  'wm-source': 'https://brid.gy/comment/twitter/CodeFoodPixels/1524795680966991874/1524800520208142337',
  'wm-target': 'https://lukeb.co.uk/blog/2022/01/17/pixelated-rounded-corners-with-css-clip-path/',
  content: {
    html: 'The step-by-step here was/is incredible detailed!\n' +
      '<a class="u-mention" href="http://lukeb.co.uk/"></a>\n' +
      '<a class="u-mention" href="https://twitter.com/CodeFoodPixels"></a>',
    text: 'The step-by-step here was/is incredible detailed!',
    value: 'The step-by-step here was/is incredible detailed! <a></a> <a></a>'
  },
  'in-reply-to': 'https://lukeb.co.uk/blog/2022/01/17/pixelated-rounded-corners-with-css-clip-path/',
  'wm-property': 'in-reply-to',
  'wm-private': false
}

It also adds 2 filters:

  • webmentionsForPage will return the webmentions for that page, in the structure defined by the mentionTypes option.
  • webmentionCountForPage will return the number of webmentions for a page, filtered by the types used in the mentionTypes option.

Here is an example of using the filters in nunjucks:

{# Get the webmentions for the current page #}
{%- set currentPostMentions = webmentions | webmentionsForPage -%}

{# Get the webmentions for a specific page #}
{%- set postMentions = webmentions | webmentionsForPage(post.url) -%}

{# Get the webmention count for the current page #}
{%- set currentPostMentionCount = webmentions | webmentionCountForPage -%}

{# Get the webmention count for a page #}
{%- set postMentionCount = webmentions | webmentionCountForPage(post.url) -%}
