Following on from yesterday’s post about static tweets, I’ve also added a shortcode for fetching posts directly from Pleroma1. You can check out the code here.

Unlikey for the Twitter shortcode, I don’t have to proxy requests, because the Pleroma API does not require authorisation for public posts, making the implementation much less convoluted.

Check out the example below:

I wrote about statically rendering tweets with Hugo (the static site generator).

The tweets on my blog no longer use Twitter's oEmbed, but are rendered in at build time. When the page loads with a tweet in it, it's all static!
