What cross-posting solutions do you use?

madza profile image Madza ・1 min read

Automated cross-posting on various platforms can be a great time and energy saver, but if done incorrectly could cause poorly formatted articles due to differences in layout (liquid tags, complex tables, etc), as well as different image resolutions.

Do you cross post manually or use some automated solutions you would like to share?

I flipped the idea and went with using DEV as a headless CMS. More on that here. πŸ‘‡

The only issues I’ve found so far are the styling of embeds coming from DEV. They’re in iframes, so you can style them to fit your blog. I’ll get around to sorting that out at some point though. It involves a rework of how embeds stylings work in the platform.

Been using this solution for my website, and found the same thing. Very happy with 99% of how it operates. Glad to know covering off that last 1% niggle is on the cards!

Update on the embeds from DEV. I've been able to transfrom some of the embeds to gatsby-remark-oembded embeds.

You can probably use the same logic in a non-Gatsby site, like say Eleventy as it's just node processing markdown.

Currently I only cross post on devto from my blog inspiredwebdev.com so I do it manually. Since both places use markdown (mdx on my blog) it's very easy to just copy and paste.

Rss is key here, I half manually crosspost here. My main R rss feed gets picked up by rweekly and rbloggers.
