Morning, acegiak
#
acegiak
I'm wondering if I should set up a script to go look at all the Images I hotlink in the process of reblogging them and cache them on my own storage incase those sites go down in future
#
aaronpk
i would
#
aaronpk
i am planning on doing that too
#
acegiak
aaronpk: I don't want to have to go through and change all the URLS in my posts so I'm thinking of having a Jquery script do it with an AJAX call when the posts get displayed
#
aaronpk
interesting idea
#
GWG
acegiak: There are plugins for WordPress that do that.
#
aaronpk
i'm definitely going to change the URLs, but mostly because I want to make sure I'm always serving everything over HTTPS so I have to serve my own URLs ayway

mblaney
hello indiewebcamp
#
acegiak
GWG: yeah but they wouldn't handle the cite metadata? Or would they do it with the javascript?
#
GWG
acegiak: It could be added to Post Kinds.
#
mblaney
an update on my reader: I ended up adding parsing microformats to SimplePie itself, will push it to my fork on github when I've ironed out a few bugs.
#
mblaney
now I'm looking for feeds that only publish h-entry's with no links to xml feeds in them, aaronpk I think you do that yes?
nitot joined the channel
#
mblaney
(if SimplePie can discover a feed I let it do that, then it checks the original html for microformats)
#
tantek
what is an image proxy?
#
Loqi
An image proxy is a service that fetches and re-serves images from a new URL https://indiewebcamp.com/image_proxy
#
mblaney
aaronpk: cool as usual I'm using your site to test things :-)
#
aaronpk
mblaney: have you considered doing that in the other order? prioritizing microformats if present?
#
acegiak
mblaney, whisperfollow uses simplepie too. How often do you poll?
#
acegiak
aaronpk: yeah I prioritize microformats cause you can get better data out of it
#
acegiak
mblaney: I ask because limiting polling has ended up being an important challenge for me because otherwise my big subscription list rapidly gets out of hand
#
mblaney
aaronpk: yeah I thought about that, but in my case the xml is the minimal case because I'm only publishing the last 24 hours, so there's less to parse
#
mblaney
hi acegiak, I poll every hour unless a feed supports rssCloud and then I don't poll at all.
#
aaronpk
tantek: i'm having trouble understanding http://indiewebcamp.com/comments-presentation#How_to_display Is the indentation under "IF there is no e-content OR it's too long, THEN" significant?
#
mblaney
yeah I've spent a lot of time trying to work out how to best poll with SimplePie, I ended up writing a cron system for it.
#
acegiak
ah neat. I'm polling every few minutes which is why it became an issue
#
acegiak
mblaney: yeah I hit my trigger script with cron
#
acegiak
mblaney, what are you using for your site?
#
mblaney
acegiak: I've written my own CMS called dobrado (it's at dobrado.net)
#
acegiak
neat! I'm using simplepie because its bundled in as a part of wordpress
#
aaronpk
hm yeah this doesn't seem to be written in a way that maps to code nicely
#
mblaney
acegiak: nice one, I wish it was still being maintained :-)
#
aaronpk
or the indentation is making it hard to read
#
tantek
aaronpk - the indentation is supposed to be a code block for the THEN clause of that IF statement you quoted
#
tantek
like you would have indentation inside a { } block

mblaney: Although you are missing one thing

GWG
h-feed
#
mblaney
GWG I'm not actually sure what the purpose of h-feed is...
#
GWG
h-feed is a page of h-entrys.
#
GWG
So, you can attach the page description as the p-name of the h-feed.
#
tantek
mblaney++ for adding microformats support to his version of the SimplePie feed parsing library!

#
mblaney
thanks tantek, GWG that does sound useful. I might add it for that but I still think it's optional.
#
GWG
mblaney: It is hierarchy. If there is a name on the h-feed it would supersede name on the h-entry.
#
mblaney
isn't that assuming I want the name of the h-feed? at the moment I only want the name of the h-entry.
#
Loqi
gives mblaney the name of the h
#
GWG
mblaney: If there are more than 1 h-entrys...
#
mblaney
thanks Loqi :-)
#
Loqi
you're welcome
#
tantek
gives Loqi a sense of sarcasm
#
Loqi
enjoys the sense of sarcasm
#
mblaney
GWG are you saying that if I don't find a property on the h-entry I should look on the h-feed?
#
GWG
mblaney: The other way round, actually.
#
tantek
GWG, I don't understand what problem you're trying to solve
#
GWG
tantek: Just trying to write a function that takes the output from php-mf2 and just extracts enough for a link preview.
#
tantek
GWG - maybe see existing work from kylewm
#
GWG
tantek: I was looking for php. kylewm uses python, doesn't he? But either way, will have to ask kylewm where he has something the next time he's around
#
tantek
pretty sure he added something to php-mf2 also
#
mblaney
GWG I guess it depends what you're trying to do.
#
mblaney
the /h-feed page does make a good point about providing a name for the feed, in my changes to SimplePie I pulled the name from the title element on the page... not so microformatty of me.
#
mblaney
the other interesting "Why" point is to get the author, but h-entry also provides an author so I'm not sure where I would use that.
nitot joined the channel
#
GWG
mblaney: It doesn't have to. You could put the author on the h-feed and not include it in every individual h-entry
#
mblaney
sure I agree it's worth looking for but still think the h-entry author comes first. ie it could be a multi-author feed.
#
GWG
mblaney: Then there would be no author property on the h-feed if it was multi-author
Erkan_Yilmaz joined the channel
#
mblaney
cool, though I was thinking it might still be useful, ie imagine a multi-author feed for an indiewebcamp event, with individual authors on h-entry's and something like "indiewebcamp attendees" on the h-feed.
#
GWG
If so many WordPress sites hadn't misused hfeed, I wouldn't have to figure out how to code for the special case of
#
GWG
Either way, will pick this up tomorrow I suppose.

kylewm
aaronpk: I think setting the p-name that way (as a prefix of the content) is interesting, has anyone else tried it?
#
aaronpk
not sure
#
aaronpk
I just saw one of my twitter cards expand in a Slack channel and it basically filled the whole window because it showed the full name and content which were identical
#
aaronpk
then I realized I had the entire note text in the <title> tag
#
aaronpk
with linebreaks and everything
#
kylewm
haha, like kevin's screenshot of mousing over the tab title of one of tantek's long notes
#
Loqi
hehe
#
Zegnat
aaronpk, I think Tantek is known for doing that too. It breaks almost every RSS reader I use
#
aaronpk
i mean there is something to be said for clients handling the case of really long titles better
#
Zegnat
At least when titles and content match. Then again, there are loads of edge cases. Clients have to do fuzzy matching in case the title includes all text but no special HTML elements like VIDEO. Not as straight forward as it could be.
#
aaronpk
i mean there is nothing stopping regular RSS feeds from including really long titles too

!tell tantek don't forget to send out invitations to 10/7 Homebrew!
#
Loqi
Ok, I'll tell him that when I see him next
#
Zegnat
Sure, but people are more than likely to put “title”-content into the title. IndieWeb Notes on the other hand do not have titles by design and then chose to set content as the title. I am not sure this is a problem with feeds or with the current IndieWeb implementations
#
aaronpk
it's definitely a limitation of RSS/Atom feeds
#
kylewm
required elements anti-pattern!
lewisnyman and nitot joined the channel
#
Zegnat
kylewm: title element is not require by RSS 2.0. The only requirement is that “at least one of title or description must be present”. Which is not a problem.
#
tommorris
yep, RSS 2.0 doesn't require it and in Atom, you can use an empty string. <atom:title></atom:title> is perfectly fine iirc.
#
aaronpk
in practice, nearly every RSS/Atom reader expects it tho
#
Zegnat
I am not sure about the status of readers on that, might be worth looking into. I believe Feedbin handles items without titles just fine.

!tell GWG re: "so many WordPress sites hadn't misused hfeed" would be great to document precisely what went wrong (what do you mean by "misused"?), and a few specific real world examples thereof (could you provide URLs to sites, themes that demonstrate the misuse?), so we can investigate and hopefully prevent a similar problem with mf2 h-feed.

#
tantek
I'm definitely getting pretty tired of how many sites even home pages are js;dr these days - and am thinking of creating proper parseable HTML+CSS proxies for them - on my own domain
#
tantek
Recent examples include restaurant sites, it's as if they learned nothing from the failures of their previous generation of Flash-only restaurant sites
#
tantek
perhaps that is the itch that is going to make me scratch it with indie /venue pages
todrobbins joined the channel
#
tantek
wondering if this is a use-case for anyone else?
#
tantek
most recent js;dr venue home page example: http://www.themillsf.com/
#
aaronpk
don't blame the restaurants, blame the people that make the tools that make restaurant websites and the agencies that do the consulting gigs for restaurant sites
#
tantek
I blame the restaurants because they are the ones *paying* for it (thus *voting* for it)
#
aaronpk
clicking those little nav buttons don't even take you to the right spot ugh
#
tantek
if my extended hypotheses about js;dr are correct, I (or any of us) should be able to out-search-engine-game the restaurant's own home pages with my own venue pages for them
#
aaronpk
ultimately the restaurant owner shouldn't have to know about the underlying technology. they should be complaining to the people they are paying that the site "doesn't work", for some value of "doesn't work" that is a result of js;dr
#
tantek
right, they were too clueless to know to complain that flash-only didn't work for many customers, so expectedly, they're too clueless to know to complain that js;dr doesn't work for many customers.
#
KevinMarks
also, google want them to make google local pages for themselves
#
tantek
what is Google Local?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "Google Local" yet. Would you like to create it? http://indiewebcamp.com/s/103v
#
aaronpk
it will be fixed when there are visible reasons that js;dr sites are worse
#
aaronpk
"clueless" isn't really an actionable criticism
#
tantek
I'm even thinking of encoding a teaching experience into the indie venue page - that is, e.g. on my page for The Mill, I would still include a link to their own home page, however with caveats like WARNING: Unreadable on some browsers due to Javascript. See js;dr for more.
#
tantek
aaronpk agreed hence the teaching experience thoughts (simultaneous typing :) )
#
tantek
I believe we can outgame all js;dr sites

with our own versions

and at that point, if we all (or even some/most of us) explain on our indie venue pages WHY our pages are well ranked (and why the restaurants' own sites are not), some of them may learn and pass on the requests (with handy citations from us :) )

Tangent: I've had a friend tell me he would love an app or website that lets you easily view a restaurants menu and keep track of what you've tried there. I've thought about doing it as a web app, although not very seriously. Getting the menu information in initially is the hardest part.

GWG: tantek left you a message 2 hours, 39 minutes ago: re: "so many WordPress sites hadn't misused hfeed" would be great to document precisely what went wrong (what do you mean by "misused"?), and a few specific real world examples thereof (could you provide URLs to sites, themes that demonstrate the misuse?), so we can investigate and hopefully prevent a similar problem with mf2 h-feed. http://indiewebcamp.com/irc/2015-10-05/line/1444070009830

rhiaro: that's good timing for IWC MIT right before Social Web f2f (modulo Thanksgiving in the middle)

well that's one way to curate comments "Once a week or thereabouts we'll publish a digest of the most insightful letters we get."
#
aaronpk
call them "letters" and maybe people will be more thoughtful when writing emails?

yeah that's strange logic. comments are bad because we don't moderate them, so we'll moderate emails instead

!tell aaronpk what's the benefit of the first 5-7 words rather than an empty title? Also, my reader doesn't show a title when it matches the content (it does a tag stripped comparison).
#
Loqi
Ok, I'll tell them that when I see them next
#
aaronpk
too many things expect a title, I'm afraid if I leave it empty it will have worse results

like how some rss readers show <i>no title</i> instead of literally no title? yes I can understand that.
#
aaronpk
i don't even know what google search results would look like with no title
#
aaronpk
same with twitter/facebook previews
#
kylewm
I like the idea of first few words, I will probably follow your lead if you like it

link-preview silo practices
#
mblaney
I just did an A/B comparison with two different posts.... google didn't look any different :-)
#
tantek
mblaney: I'm curious how you're testing "google". would that be search? or G+? or Gmail? or... ?"
#
tantek
mblaney: see also /link-preview for a lot more on this subject
#
mblaney
yeah sorry I just meant search.
#
mblaney
I would be interested to know if it improved silo previews too.
