Known (software)

Known is an open source publishing tool designed to provide a way of more easily publishing status updates, blog posts, and photos to a wide range of social media services. It also allows you to keep a copy of the content you publish and post on your own site.[4]

Known is available as installable, open source software and as a hosted platform, similar to WordPress.[5] It is a part of the IndieWeb movement,[6] and is used as a teaching tool in higher education.[7][8] It also supports multi-user use, and is sometimes considered as an intranet platform.[9]

Known supports the W3C Recommendations Micropub[10] and Webmention[11] among others.
