As of [_Implementing h-feed, and making all site content discoverable_]({{< ref "2019-05-12-implementing-hfeed-making-content-discoverable" >}}), I'm now supporting h-feed.

With this announcement, I have two great pieces of news.
The first, is that you'll now be able to follow my website's [h-feed](, which is a [microformats2]( structure for a feed of data. This is in addition to my RSS feed ([/feed.xml](/feed.xml)) and [my JSON feed]({{< ref "2019-04-07-jsonfeed" >}}) ([/feed.json](/feed.json)), and will allow further interoperability with the IndieWeb.
The second is that I've now made all&#42; my content discoverable in these feed formats, including the types announced in [_Extending to allow for other post types_]({{< ref "6b919e78-c46a-48e3-8866-9d9e9d41bb3d" >}}). They are rendering their content accordingly depending on the post type, and I've been able to make them nicely de-duplicated, [which I'll blog about shortly](
&#42; I say all content is now discoverable in feeds, but I don't quite mean it. That's because I'm not displaying static pages such as [/about/](/about/), events pages, nor projects or talks. That's because these are static and don't make sense to exist in a regularly-changing feed.
That being said events listings i.e. that of [Homebrew Website Club Nottingham](/events/homebrew-website-club-nottingham/) _are_ powered by an h-feed, so you can still follow them.
I've set up h-feeds in the following places:
- on the front-page of this site
- on a per post type basis, i.e. [/notes/](/notes/), [/posts/](/posts/)
- on taxonomy pages i.e. [/categories/announcement/](/categories/announcement/)
Unlike some of the previous changes I've made to this site, I've decided to not (at this time) create any automated tests for validating whether the h-feed is well formed, instead deciding to manually verify whether it works.
