bret: sure! if you're already sending wms, it'd be easy to start with bridgy publish if you want, or you could ramp up on the twitter api directly
#
bret
not sending wms automatically yet.

i need to write that task to be triggered still

Morning...
#
kylewm
how's it going GWG?
#
GWG
kylewm: I've been fiddling with a widget
#
kylewm
for h-cards?
#
GWG
Yes
#
GWG
I need to style it more
#
GWG
There it is in the corner
#
GWG
I've been playing with some things and had a problem
#
GWG
I blame tantek
#
GWG
I've been thinking about his People Focused Communication thoughts again
#
kylewm
and trying to integrate that into the widget?
#
GWG
Well, and into the Wordpress user profile.
#
GWG
But I wasn't quite sure the best approach.
#
GWG
The problem is the URI scheme isn't consistent.
#
GWG
So, I have the top bar, which will be syndication points.
#
GWG
The H-Card will have communications methods.
#
GWG
But I can't figure that part out

aaronpk: Why a Wordpress blog?
#
GWG
I know you use a different CMS
#
aaronpk
it's for cyborgcamp
#
KevinMarks_
soon, you can use known for those kinds of things.
#
aaronpk
I would love to
#
KevinMarks_
Ben just shipped built-in posse
#
aaronpk
what does that mean?
#
KevinMarks_
before you had to do a lot of buggering around creating your own FB and twitter apps to POSSE
#
KevinMarks_
now you just auth and it works
#
aaronpk
oh! crazy, using the Known app on facebook and twitter?
#
KevinMarks_
try it- create an account on known.kevinmarks.com
#
GWG
Am I the only one around here who isn't trying to flee Wordpress?
#
GWG
I'm not complaining, I am just starting to feel like a minority opinion.
#
aaronpk
I'd like to see wordpress get more indieweb support, I'm not opposed to it, it just doesn't always fit what I'm trying to do
#
KevinMarks_
I want wordpress to include this stuff too, of course
#
aaronpk
actually for this, Known isn't really appropriate, since we need to have a few top-level pages rather than a stream of posts
#
KevinMarks_
ah, I thought you wanted multi-user. WP as hosting pages works
#
GWG
aaronpk: Nothing will fit exactly with what someone wants unless you write it yourself.

SRCR
Hi Barnaby
#
barnabywalters
greetings SRCR!
#
barnabywalters
aaronpk: cool, good to hear it’s up-to-date now — lots of good stuff in recent releases!
#
barnabywalters
(no thanks to me though — mainly via excellent pull requests)
paulcp joined the channel
#
SRCR
Barnaby, I saw you suggesting going with Craft CMS a while back, do you know if there are already projects on POSSE for Craft ?
#
barnabywalters
SRCR: pretty sure that’s someone else (maybe shanehudson?) — I maintain my own publishing software: taprootproject.com
#
SRCR
I have shane's webmention plugin, but I'll see if he can make some more plugins :)
#
kylewm
SRCR: have you been able to log into the wiki yet?
#
SRCR
which wiki?
#
kylewm
just asking because you should add yourself to http://indiewebcamp.com/irc-people :)
#
SRCR
unfortunately indie auth is not workin :(
#
kylewm
what's your URL?
#
aaronpk
SRCR: it's probably an easy fix, what error are you getting?
#
SRCR
Unknown error retrieving https://srcr.nl: 404 => Net::HTTPNotFound for https://srcr.nl/login -- unhandled response
#
aaronpk
well that's a new one
#
aaronpk
where is it finding the login URL?
#
aaronpk
I don't see that linked anywhere on your home page
#
SRCR
no idea
#
SRCR
i see this on server side though "Someone tried to restore a session from a cookie without presenting an IP address or userAgent string."
#
SRCR
is indie auth storing cookies ?
#
aaronpk
oh interesting... sounds like your site is sending a redirect to /login then
#
aaronpk
I don't think it's storing cookies...
#
kylewm
curl -I https://srcr.nl seems to work fine though...
#
SRCR
I had a different site in place a while back that hat the login url.. Craft hasn't
#
aaronpk
indieauth.com is even pretending to be safari to get around some issues where servers were sending back bad responses fo a curl user agent
#
barnabywalters
pin13.net fails parsing srcr.net — a useful symptom? http://pin13.net/mf2/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fsrcr.nl%2F
#
SRCR
works fine, I have a redirect from http to https
#
barnabywalters
ah, I pasted the wrong URL — but the https version was failing too earlier
#
barnabywalters
SRCR: nice work getting h-feed markup on your homepage stream! the author name gets parsed as “Peter Zuidema’s Avatar” though — even for screenreaders this should probably just be “Peter Zuidema”: http://shrewdness.waterpigs.co.uk/test/?url=srcr.nl
#
SRCR
Yes I noticed that one to.. I have some problem in my code..
#
SRCR
I'll fix that.. :)

ShaneHudson joined the channel
#
SRCR
Good of you to drop in Shane :)
#
SRCR
Do you have plans to create more Indie plugins for Craft CMS ?
#
ShaneHudson
I haven't yet released any, you may be using one by Jason Garber for sending webmentions? But I have been working on (very early version but it works) a webmention reciever plugin. The two plaugins are working well together but mine is very basic at the moment.
#
ShaneHudson
I am hoping to get POSSE to Twitter working in the next couple of weeks, preferably before IWC UK
#
SRCR
I indeed have that one, and I would like a POSSE plugin :)
#
ShaneHudson
I will open source my webmention plugin soon. What features are you wanting for POSSE? Can't promise anything but hoping to get it working well
#
SRCR
Would be nice to post to twitter of course
#
SRCR
Will you make that plugin available ?
#
SRCR
Looking forward to that then.. In the meantime I'm fixing my h-entry mess :)
#
ShaneHudson
Heh yeah I need to sort out mine too :)
#
t`
makes a case for deleting facebook
#
aaronpk
who is t`?
#
KevinMarks_
t-prime? is it evil tantek?
#
barnabywalters
greetings t`!
#
aaronpk
wow wordpress really has gotten a ton better since I last used it
#
t`
Tantek shouldn't have a monopoly on the letter 't'
#
t`
Plenty of non tanteks start with t
#
t`
feels marginalised
#
barnabywalters
t`: well welcome to #indiewebcamp and apologies for assuming you were tantek (@t on twitter) :)
#
aaronpk
barnabywalters: oh hai! I was playing with waveform image generators this morning
#
barnabywalters
aaronpk: cool! I saw your reply
#
aaronpk
It's a weird enough problem that I'm wondering if it makes sense to bundle in as part of my media URL embeddy thing
#
barnabywalters
aaronpk: where you just link to an audio file from a note and your embedding code handles the rest?
#
aaronpk
i'm thinking about a service that takes URLs like http://media.aaronparecki.com/instagram.com/p/sCudrCjcke/ and returns the URL of the raw image
#
t`
Link is dead
#
aaronpk
in which case if it pointed at an .mp3 file it could then return a URL to the waveform
#
t`
Assuming that is a landing page with embedded image
#
aaronpk
t`: yes it doesn't exist yet, hence why I am thinking about it
#
t`
ah
#
t`
its a proxy like thing
#
barnabywalters
aaronpk: sort of a “turn anything into an image” gateway?
#
aaronpk
sort yeah
#
aaronpk
although some instagram posts are videos
#
barnabywalters
that’s a cool idea
#
aaronpk
so I might actualyl want it to return HTML
#
barnabywalters
then it’s getting quite similar to oembed
#
aaronpk
like <img src=""> or <video src="">
#
barnabywalters
except way simpler
#
aaronpk
yeah basically oembed as a service and simpler
#
aaronpk
and for things that don't support oembed
#
barnabywalters
downside to returning HTML is that it’s harder to directly embed
#
aaronpk
why is that harder to directly embed?
#
aaronpk
oh yeah cause it requires server-side processing you mean?
KartikPrabhu joined the channel
#
aaronpk
i'm ok with that
#
barnabywalters
you have to either include it inline or embed using an iframe or object
#
GWG
aaronpk: Doesn't everything get better with iteration? With some rare exceptions?
#
aaronpk
GWG: yes :) It's just been quite a while since i've used a new version
#
aaronpk
barnabywalters: oh and the other thing this service does is references the original media (instagram CDN, etc) if possible, and if/when the silo goes away switches to serving its own copies of the files
#
barnabywalters
aaronpk: that would be super useful
#
barnabywalters
this would be a great little project to release separately from p3k for others to use/deploy
#
aaronpk
yeah! that's what I'm thinking!
#
GWG
aaronpk: I have been trying to solve that problem for a site where the CDN sometimes goes down.
#
aaronpk
I made a bunch of progress on the logic for this inside p3k last week but quickly realized it would be better as a separate thing
#
barnabywalters
it’d be great if I could just drop it into shrewdness and automatically have all of the silo-hosted assets (or at least image representations of them) stored, cached and served
#
barnabywalters
it’s already a performance problem on my rather large dashboard
#
barnabywalters
although that can be mitigated by loading fewer posts per column, and only loading images when they’re scrolled into view
#
aaronpk
yeah totally. that's why i'm thinking about it as a subdomain of my site, totally unrelated to my main content
snarfed and krendil joined the channel
#
aaronpk
just realized that twitter and facebook basically already do this
tantek joined the channel
#
aaronpk
they take whatever image they find in a post URL then serve it from their CDN
caseorganic joined the channel
#
aaronpk
I just started serving local copies of instagram URLs I link to in posts: http://aaronparecki.com/notes/2012/09/15/2/ which is where this all came from
#
t`
nathan needs to team up with elon musk and take over the world
#
barnabywalters
wonders how often aaronpk’s sidebar “watching” field is updated
#
tantek
who is nathan?
#
aaronpk
barnabywalters: the sidebar changes depending on the date of the post you're looking at :)
#
t`
The person in the above picture
#
barnabywalters
oh hey it’s different on different posts — cool! so how do you change the details?
#
aaronpk
there's a folder of the things
#
aaronpk
it's pretty hacky
#
aaronpk
I make a filename like 2013-03-08_2013-05-01.md and whatever is in that file gets put into the sidebar for posts during that date range
#
barnabywalters
nothing wrong with that
#
t`
Sounds like something tantek would do...
#
tantek
t` we need to get @natronics his own website if he's going to take over the world.
#
aaronpk
barnabywalters: I thought it would be fun to make that a sort of snapshot of things over time
#
t`
tantek: I think he owns http://mechanicalintegrator.com/
#
tantek
a domain is a good start - now we need to get him to put something visible on it! Like at least some links to his twitter and github so he can get IndieAuth setup. http://indiewebcamp.com/indiemark#Level_1
#
t`
So the downside to hosting your own indiewebsite on your laptop is that if you format your computer and don't back it up, it kinda disappears
#
aaronpk
I think that's more of a downside to not backing things up
#
t`
Good point
#
t`
Thats why the cloud is so convenient, I hardly back anything up on my local machine anymore
#
GWG
aaronpk: What would you use to code that subdomain functionality?
#
aaronpk
you back up the version in the "cloud" though right?
#
aaronpk
GWG: it'd probably be a small php project, since I already have a bunch of the functionality written in PHP
#
tantek
t` and by "the cloud" you mean "a web server" right?
#
GWG
aaronpk: I'd be interested possibly, if you ever post the code
#
t`
It's not really a backup, like a snapshot of my hard drive, its piecemeal. Like my contacts are in google, my code is in github, etc
#
aaronpk
that's not really backed up at all
#
t`
Which is why I said i don't do backups ;)
#
aaronpk
GWG: cool yeah it would definitely be open source and hopefully easy to drop on to any php server
#
@BarnabyWalters
@schussman great work getting webmention comments set up on your site, and thanks for the kind words… http://waterpigs.co.uk/notes/4XmLrh/

Hi, tantek
#
tantek
hello GWG!
#
tantek
GWG, I'm checking back a couple of days in the logs to see if I missed anything interesting.
#
GWG
tantek: I need your advice
#
tantek
How about you, anything indieweb-interesting to you in the past couple of days?
#
tantek
ask away!
#
GWG
I've put up a primitive version of my h-card widget
#
GWG
And I was having so much trouble because of you
#
GWG
Indirectly, of course
#
tantek
does that sometimes. >:)
#
GWG
It's about the People Focused Communications stuff
#
tantek
excellent!
#
GWG
So, let me show yuo
#
GWG
So, the icons at the top are the syndication icons.
#
GWG
So, the same page elsewhere
#
GWG
Inside the h-card, which is set up as a Wordpress widget, I want to have the communications methods
#
GWG
This is where the People Focused part comes in
#
GWG
I want a set that would work on desktop and mobile. But no system handles the same basic set
#
Loqi
gives GWG a set that would work on desktop and mobile
#
tantek
Lol. Thanks Loqi. Always so helpful. ;)
#
Loqi
you're welcome
#
GWG
So, the big problem is, if you decide you want a basic set, what do you use?
#
GWG
I could always serve a different set based on User Agent, but...
#
GWG
one step at a time
#
GWG
This has been holding me up as I try to figure out what goes in it
#
GWG
That is why a simple view is taking me too long.
#
tantek
GWG - correct, and I haven't written those building blocks yet.
#
tantek
and how far I've gotten by what's linked. and I should link the CSS one too to the work done during IWC 2014 at NYC and Berlin
#
GWG
tantek: I've looked at that. I also wrote my response
#
tantek
note that Logic, Client Platform Detection, and Contextual Tests are also not yet developed
#
tantek
right - I read that
#
GWG
I read yours too
#
tantek
though that was more of a response to the original article
#
tantek
the quote you have is from the original post, not the building blocks post!
#
GWG
I said response, didn't I?
#
GWG
I read them all though
#
GWG
Every single one
#
GWG
I promise
#
GWG
But, I'm trying to figure out an interim form
#
tantek
you said it was a response to building blocks, but you quoted the article before that
#
GWG
It was a response to all of them, I think
#
tantek
does a view source and looks for in-reply-to markup...
#
GWG
I suppose I could just do a link to a contact form
#
GWG
tantek: My site doesn't do multi-response
#
tantek
your posts link to multiple things
#
tantek
so I'm not sure what you mean by "doesn't do multi-response"
#
GWG
Yes. But the Response UI doesn't.
#
GWG
I could code it manually
#
tantek
it's odd to see a quotation without a citation of the quote!
#
GWG
I'll work on it for Version 2 of the Taxonomy plugin
#
tantek
the “What if our mobile devices focused on people first … " quote
#
GWG
I'll make a note to fix the citation
#
GWG
Either way, what's an interim option, do you think?
#
GWG
Email is the only one I can think of that works everywhere
#
tantek
the best analysis of that is in the "URLs for …" post
#
tantek
where I also noted some of the additional conditional building blocks that were needed
memecake joined the channel
#
tantek
GWG, the aim: skype: and Twitter DM URLs in that article should all work fairly cross-platform cross-device
#
GWG
I look forward to more on the matter. I've been looking at things.
#
tantek

tantek: Skype doesn't work on my desktop
#
tantek
no Skype client?
#
GWG
I checked. It doesn't register on Linux
#
GWG
Skype works, but not the URL
#
tantek
that's good to know
#
tantek
what is Skype?
#
Loqi
Skype is a communication service that provides text chat, and audio/video calling service via native applications on desktop (Mac, Windows), and mobile (iOS, Android) http://indiewebcamp.com/Skype
#
GWG
I'm this close to setting up a system to send push messages to my phone
#
GWG
tantek: It may be Fedora. For all I know, it works great on Ubuntu

GWG
Anyone know if there is a danger to having a script that would push a message to my phone when anyone fills out a form?
#
tantek
GWG if you have any more details, e.g. version of Skype app, version of Fedora, please add to http://indiewebcamp.com/Skype#Lacks_skype_URL_support_on_Fedora
#
GWG
I'll check again. I haven't installed Skype on this machine
#
tantek
GWG re: such push messages, see http://indiewebcamp.com/mention-app
#
GWG
I'm aware. I remember discussing it
#
GWG
I was talking about something simpler for now
#
tantek
that would be great to document your thoughts about something simpler
#
GWG
I mentioned it in chat, but...
#
tantek
right - capture it on the page
#
tantek
and definitely let us know what your experience is with installing Skype on your new machine
#
GWG
It isn't new
#
tantek
if the issue with launching from skype: URLs remains or not
#
GWG
I just replaced the hard drive on this system
#
GWG
So I installed the OS clean
#
GWG
Installing Skype now
#
tantek
great
#
GWG
I have Skype on another
#
tantek
cool. if it doesn't work on that one, then document the versions (of Skype, Fedora)
#
GWG
There
#
GWG
Got a skype URI I can click?
#
GWG
What page am I documenting failure on?

There it is

I'm putting them elsewhere
#
aaronpk
a link to your twitter profile makes sense, especially if it has rel=me
#
GWG
aaronpk: I have those outside of the h-card though
#
aaronpk
will everyone also have those outside who is using this?
#
GWG
I want to put only communications methods inside.
#
t`
How do you do rel=me in markdown?
#
GWG
aaronpk: Does that affect anything?
#
t`
I'm trying to start a jekyll blog
#
aaronpk
t`: I think there are some extensions to markdown that support adding attributes, but not in core
#
aaronpk
GWG: twitter DMs could be considered a communication method
#
t`
Ah I can just type raw html
#
bret
woop, got CI and test coverage reporting all automated :) pretty easy once you pin down all the information on how to do it https://github.com/bcomnes/gitpub/blob/master/README.md
#
caseorganic
t`: GWG: CyborgCamp will be one day before indiewebcamp in Cambridge at MIT! I've had cyborgcamps on and off for the last 6 years. CyborgCamp 10/10/14, IndieWebCamp Cambridge 10/11/14-10/12/14
#
t`
But I don't live in cambridge...
#
t`
Not yet anyway
#
GWG
aaronpk: So, a DM link in the h-card, a Twitter account link in the rel=me section.
#
aaronpk
that would work!
#
GWG
caseorganic: Perhaps I will be able to come up to Boston
#
GWG
caseorganic: If not, video
#
GWG
aaronpk: But what else? I've covered email.
#
t`
Ack in jeykll it looks like raw html links and markdown generated links have slighly different colours...
#
GWG
That's 2
#
GWG
And the third I'm thinking is a form that sends a Pushover notice to my phone.
#
t`
Pushover?
#
GWG
pushover.net
#
t`
ah like urban airship
#
aaronpk
not really lol
#
bret
t` jekyll does not determine color, that must be the CSS that is included in the site
#
GWG
Pushover is the poor man's way of doing Push Notifications multi-platform

tantek: caseorganic left you a message 33 minutes ago: i'm about to start promoting cyborgcamp.com and indiewebcamp cambridge and want to make sure i have all of the details ironed out
#
bret
defmoves how did you find your way here?
#
tantek
awesome!
#
tantek
caseorganic, sandro volunteered to organize the MIT venue for IndieWebCamp
#
bret
caseorganic thats a slick looking cyborgcamp website!
#
tantek
he participated in IndieWebCamp 2014 at NYC
#
caseorganic
tantek: shall i get in touch with sandro here or is there another way?
#
caseorganic
bret: thanks a bunch! you'll be catching this conf, right?
#
tantek
caseorganic he does pop in here from time to time, let's add him as a co-organizer. always good to have the venue person as a co-organizer
#
tantek
caseorganic: I will try to come to cyborgcamp too if it is possible
#
bret
i wish, I'll be busy with my last quarter of PSU
#
caseorganic
tantek: ok. who is sedro, btw? context?
#
caseorganic
bret: drat
#
bret
ill go to the next one, promise
#
defmoves
Bret: I saw Jeremy Keith's talk at the indie web summit. Made a note, lost it, found it again.
#
caseorganic
bret: you should go to http://ziggy.is/
#
caseorganic
bret: as you'll be in town for it
#
caseorganic
tantek: excellent, thank you #lazyweb
#
caseorganic
tantek: great, do you talk with sandro often? i'm happy with him being a co-organizer then
#
tantek
defmoves, interesting, what else did you get out of the "indie web summit" ?
#
bret
caseorganic way cool! btw that reminds me. thought you might like this: http://store.steampowered.com/app/243000/ maybe you have seen it?
#
tantek
caseorganic: he's semi-active in the new W3C Social Web Working Group
#
tantek
and the #social channel on irc.w3.org
#
bret
yes thats davd bowie in an early 2000 pc game :)
#
tantek
pops over there
#
caseorganic
bret: cool! let's take this discussion to #indiechat
#
bret
defmoves sweet! hope you stay a while. there are some pretty fun discussions here, and the channel is a really helpful place to get started on setting up your own website and integrating with indieweb building blocks
#
tantek
defmoves, do you have your own site?
#
defmoves
Bret: That there's a growing number of people concered with a centralised web. That it's down to those who work & play on it to create solutions/alternatives.
#
bret
we also have the http://indiewebcamp.com wiki, irc logs http://indiewebcamp.com/irc/today. when you get a chance, you are encoraged to add yourself to http://indiewebcamp.com/irc-people
#
bret
encouraged*
#
tantek
caseorganic: would you like me to help as a co-organizer as well, or just help connect you and Sandro and get that going? (totally ok just providing background help like that)
#
kylewm
bret++ yay for tests and CI. I've been cowboying it so far, but tests are moving up my priority list quickly
#
Loqi
bret has 22 karma
#
defmoves
tantek: I'm in the process of setting one up. It's a ghost blog, but it's not finished yet.
#
tantek
defmoves - awesome! do you have a domain name already?
#
caseorganic
tantek: yes, please! i'd like that. especially as i'll be organizing the cyborgcamp the day before
#
bret
kylewm, travis ci and code climate offer some easy to use free for open source options
#
caseorganic
tantek: aaronpk is bringing professional livestream equipment this time for cyborgcamp. could be done for indiewebcamp
#
tantek
caseorganic: ok great! to be clear, I'm going to be assuming you're still leading this one up and I will help out :)
#
defmoves
tantek: Soon.
#
defmoves
Bret: Thanks for the links, I'll loook them up.

KevinMarks_
aaronpk: have you seen the audio things echonest does?
#
aaronpk
haven't looked at echonest in a while
#
tantek
KevinMarks_: does echnoest now support indieweb-audio things?
#
caseorganic
!tell tantek: yes, that is correct. i will still lead and then ask for help when necessary from you! right now getting that venue down is perfect
#
Loqi
Ok, I'll tell him that when I see him next
#
KevinMarks_
things like infinite jukebox and Girl talk in a Box where they analyse the tracks for beats
#
aaronpk
right now i'm just focused on replicating soundcloud on my site, I don't need anything fancy
#
GWG
How many people put communications methods up that might lead to possible harassment/annoyance?
#
KevinMarks_
everyone on twitter?
#
bret
defmoves ghost looks way cool. They just updated there backend i hear.
#
bret
I want to steal ghosts editor and make it work with static sites
#
GWG
KevinMarks_: I'm thinking about people putting up SIP, telephone, SMS, etc on their sites?
#
defmoves
Bret: Yeah the whole admin panel is sleek and intuitive, and the splitscreen markdown/html editor is a joy to work with.
#
bret
defmoves how does it store content? does it expose a file system interface to the user? or is it in db somewhere

bret: It's in the DB. The interface is very stripped down. General settings, content review, new post. That's it. It's all very focused on blogging.
#
aaronpk
KevinMarks_: that's neat. hadn't seen that one but did find the c++ program it's based on
#
KevinMarks_
BBC RD have been doing some neat web audio things
#
aaronpk
yeah really
snarfed joined the channel
#
aaronpk
looks like all their things are based on a server-side c++ app that analyzes the audio file and outputs JSON or a .dat file with the raw waveform data
#
aaronpk
i'm leaning towards using that c++ program and then rendering the waveform myself in svg
#
KevinMarks_
echonest is similar - they have analysis server side
#
aaronpk
i'm determined to make my own soundcloud dammit :)
KevinMarks joined the channel
#
KevinMarks
how does a browser-based irc client time out?
#
tantek
KevinMarks: however the JS+backend middleware decides to ;)
#
KevinMarks
aaronpk: known does soundcloud POSSE
#
tantek
GWG, re: "communications methods up that might lead to possible harassment/annoyance" - I get about 1-2 spam/phishing attempts via my AIM.
#
tantek
bret, re: " They [Ghost] just updated there[sic] backend i hear" - time to retry the pull request to add microformats? http://indiewebcamp.com/Ghost#Rejected_microformats2_markup_in_default_theme
#
aaronpk
KevinMarks: yeah! I'm just trying to have a nice player on my site
#
KevinMarks
what kind of audio are you goign to host, aaron?
#
bret
tantek I dunno, might be worth a shot
#
aaronpk
mostly short songs for now, but also want to create permalinks for all the music that's already on my site
#
tantek
bret - if you're familiar with that community, perhaps give barnabywalter's pull request another shot?
#
bret
im not really involved in the ghost community, just spoken with a number of users and read their sites
lukebrooker joined the channel
#
KevinMarks
internet archive will host if your recordings are CC
#
bret
maybe a fork of the default theme would be a good place to start first this time, and then ask if it could be included
#
aaronpk
snarfed: kylewm: does bridgy need a website to have a rel=me link to twitter for it to work?
#
aaronpk
i think the answer is no
#
tantek
bret - so far we haven't had anyone here who used Ghost as their primary site
#
tantek
hopefully defmoves will make some progress!
#
snarfed
aaronpk: nope
#
defmoves
tantek: LOL, thanks, I'll keep you guys posted, although - full disclosure - I'm an indieweb noob!
#
tantek
defmoves that's great! we're all learning here, so you're in good company :)

interesting indeed
#
KevinReMarks
though this is a very small text entry field

KevinMarks
what happens if you try for an existing nick?
KevinMarks1 joined the channel
#
KevinMarks1
aha, it appends a 1
#
aaronpk
freenode takes care of that
#
aaronpk
or maybe it's the irc library
#
aaronpk
i didn't have to do anything for it
#
pktest
pretty neat huh?
#
KevinMarks1
neat
#
KevinMarks1
I think we have a winner
#
KevinMarks1
though may also need a reconnect button
#
KevinMarks1
if it had thta it would beat CIRC
#
pktest
i'm sure lots of edge cases are not handled right now
#
pktest
there's always refresh
bob1 joined the channel
#
GWG
I hate CIRC
#
bob1
Hmm...
#
bob1
Not bad
#
pktest
it's also quite likely that at some point some uncaught error will crash the node process that's running this
#
bob1
How do you verify with nickserv?
#
bob1
/nick NotBob
#
GWG
That didn't work
#
aaronpk
bob1: you use a real IRC client
pktest joined the channel
#
GWG
aaronpk: I am

GWG
And I'm not Bob
#
KevinMarks1
/msg kevinmarks hello
#
aaronpk
I mean if you know what identifying with nickserv means then you should probabbly be using a real IRC client
#
defmoves
goodnight people
#
KevinMarks
lets hope people don't try msging nickserv to verify
#
Loqi
don't let the bed bugs bite
#
aaronpk
I could just not send any messages that start with /
#
aaronpk
that's what normal irc clients do, I should do that
#
KevinMarks
probably a good defensive move
#
KevinMarks
are clients supposed to handle that specially then?
#
KevinMarks
I thought it was a server thing
#
KevinMarks1
it's been a while since I did irc hacking
#
aaronpk
it's a client thing IIRC
#
aaronpk
same with /me
#
aaronpk
that's actually a message like this: \u0001ACTION says hi\u0001
#
KevinMarks
and msg's don't go to the web people either
#
KevinMarks
oh hang on
kevinmarks1 joined the channel
#

nope, they don't get them

oh private messages? hmm
