Bridgy connects your web site to social media. This extension adds Facebook and Instagram support.
Bridgy (brid.gy) connects your web site to social media as part of the IndieWeb (indieweb.org). This extension provides backfeed for Facebook and Instagram: it pulls back comments and likes from those sites to your own web site. See the Bridgy docs for more background and details.
Your web site needs to support IndieAuth (indieauth.net). When you install the extension, it opens a Bridgy page for you to IndieAuth into your site. After that, it runs in the background, forwarding Facebook and Instagram responses to Bridgy to send back to your site. You can see status info and poke it on the extension settings page.
Bridgy originally used Instagram's and Facebook's APIs to do this, but they later restricted those APIs. Fortunately you can still log into and use them legitimately in your browser, so this extension lets you send your own data to Bridgy, automatically.

* Don't open silo login pages if they're not logged in. This ran at extension startup time, which was mostly harmless in manifest v2 since the background page was persistent stayed loaded, but in manifest v3 it's a service worker or non-persistent background page, which gets unloaded and then reloaded every 5m.
* Migrate Chrome (but not Firefox) from Manifest v2 to v3.
* Update Instagram scraping.
* Fix Instagram comments. Add extra client side API fetch, forward to new Bridgy endpoint.
* Expand error messages in options UI.
* Dynamically adjust polling frequency per silo based on how often we're seeing new comments and reactions, how recent the last successful webmention was, etc.
