Finally cleaned this up enough to push it to GitHub. Microstat - A self-hosted Micropub endpoint for statically-generated microblogs. 📝⚡️Post to your static microblog with Quill!

@rosemaryorchard Thanks for the reminder that supports crossposting! I somehow never got around to enabling it before now, but now posts to my self-hosted microblog will also show up on, Twitter, and Mastodon. Awesome!
