    Leonardo Losoviz: “Create Once, Publish Everywhere” with WordPress

    WordCamp Kuala Lumpur 2019Speaker: Leonardo Losoviz

    November 13, 2019 — Through Gutenberg, WordPress splits the post content into blocks which can be handled independently, thus enabling the implementation of the COPE strategy. This makes WordPress an ideal platform for hosting the content that will be distributed to different platforms. In this talk we will take a look into a WordPress-based architecture to implement COPE, and how it works.

    August 26, 2019 — COPE (Create Once, Publish Everywhere) is a technique which allows to publish content across different platforms from a single source of truth, enabling to feed content to dissimilar platforms such as web, emails, or an iOS or Android app, while minimizing the amount of duplicated information and reducing maintenance to the minimum possible.

    Leonardo Losoviz: How to Make a Decentralized WordPress Website

    WordCamp Kuala Lumpur 2017Speaker: Leonardo Losoviz

    January 9, 2018 — PoP is a WordPress framework which aims to break the information monopoly of large Internet corporations by linking autonomous WordPress websites together, allowing them to interact with each other and become part of a wider network composed of different communities. Users from different websites can interact among themselves, without the need to join a centralized service. This way, website owners can keep control of their own data, storing it on their own servers.
    We will explore the technical features of the framework, how it works, how to create a website with it and how to integrate it within an ecosystem.

    WordCamp Frankfurt 2016Speaker: Leonardo Losoviz

    September 10, 2016 — PoP – Platform of Platforms is a WordPress framework which aims to break the information monopoly of large Internet corporations by linking autonomous WordPress websites together, allowing them to interact with each other and become part of a wider network composed of different communities. Users from different websites can interact among themselves, without the need to join a centralized service such as Facebook or LinkedIn. This way, website owners can keep control of their own data, storing it on their own servers.
    PoP works by combining WordPress and Handlebars into an MVC architecture framework, in which WordPress is the model/back-end, Handlebars templates are the view/front-end, and the PoP engine is the controller. Acting as the controller, PoP intercepts WordPress’ data query results, generates a response in JSON, and feeds this JSON code to Handlebars to be transformed into HTML.

    The PoP engine automatically provides the WordPress website of its own API, removing the need to implement additional server-side applications for providing data to third-party websites, mobile phone apps, etc. Because the API is known to all PoP websites, they can fetch data from each other in real time, allowing for decentralization of a website’s data sources, or aggregation of multiple websites’ data into a wider network.

    Applications for a PoP network are multiple. For instance, it could enable an economy of micro-payments to take place, thus compensating anyone for their original material posted on the web. Each node on the network could decide to give its content for free to its aggregators, or charge a fee for it. The node could then use these proceedings to pay those users who contribute content to it.
