what is twitter-video?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "twitter-video" yet. Would you like to create it? https://indiewebcamp.com/s/109o
#
GWG
I haven't done a reply to a webmention enabled site in a while, thank you, tommorris
#
tantek
twitter-video is Node package for something to do with Twitter and video https://www.npmjs.com/package/twitter-video
#
loqi.me
created /twitter-video (+143) "prompted by tantek https://indiewebcamp.com/irc/2015-12-13/line/1450052106319 and dfn added by tantek"

#
bret
aww it didnt need a whole wiki page
#
tantek
bret, perhaps you can document it on /video and /Twitter ?
#
tantek
otherwise, gotta start somewhere
#
bret
at most on twitter
#
tantek
anyway - a brief definition would be a good addition to /twitter-video
#
bret
fixed
KartikPrabhu and tantek joined the channel
#
tantek
now thinking of expanding my image+URL auto-linking to video+image+URL to make it easier to paste video URL, poster URL, permalink URL and have it all auto-combine into a <video> element with poster, source src, and fallback link inside to the permalink

Hello #indiewebcamp! I have a newbie question about IndieAuth.
#
tantek.com
edited /video (+56) "/* Tantek */ no more u-photo hack in u-video posts"

#
snarfed
kousu_xmpp: shoot?
#
snarfed
er, shoot!
#
kousu_xmpp
If IndieAuth.com can get auth from a bunch of providers, what's the motivation for sticking a web page in the middle?
#
KartikPrabhu
kousu_xmpp: welcome
#
KartikPrabhu
kousu_xmpp: which webpage?
#
kousu_xmpp
The Web Sign In page
#
kousu_xmpp
with all the rel=me tags
#
snarfed
kousu_xmpp: indieauth gives consumers your domain (ie web page), not your account on a silo
#
snarfed
the indirection lets you switch silo providers invisibly without any consumers noticing or caring
#
kousu_xmpp
I found python-social-auth for Flask, which lets me consume a bunch of identity servers, but it's a nuisance to set up each OAuth backend. At first glance, IndieAuth sort of looks like I could use it instead of PSA, except it forces all of my subscribers to have a website and put up their Web Sign In links.
#
snarfed
kousu_xmpp: true. if you want to accept silo logins directly, without web pages in the middle, indieauth isn't for you
#
snarfed
you're on python, so you might be interested in https://oauth-dropins.appspot.com/
#
snarfed
i'm guessing python-social-auth is basically the same thing
#
rhiaro
Dreamhost sponsoring Known... led me to believe there would be a one-click install for Known in the Dreamhost control panel... but there isn't... did I just misunderstand this whole deal?
#
snarfed
kousu_xmpp: honestly setting up the oauth apps for each silo is way way less work than actually writing the code for each api. python-social-auth has done the vast majority of the work for you :P
#
kousu_xmpp
By the way, I am searching for ways to dump silos. I was excitedly explaining some ideas along those lines and a friend just pointed me at you. I feel kindred to your ideas.
#
kousu_xmpp
snarfed: that's probably true, but it's still too much for me to try to talk my friends into migrating
#
GWG
Intermittently
#
snarfed
glad you found us kousu_xmpp!
#
GWG
snarfed: I'll narrow it down.
#
GWG
kousu_xmpp: It isn't dump so much as live outside the walls.
#
kousu_xmpp
Ah, yeah, that's a good way to explain it. I want to jump Facebook but I hate that doing that also makes me a pariah from most things in my social world
snarfed joined the channel
#
GWG
kousu_xmpp: You effectively move from living in a gated community to just visiting
#
snarfed
exactly
#
snarfed
kousu_xmpp: it's not either or! most of us still fully interact on the silos. see https://indiewebcamp.com/POSSE and https://indiewebcamp.com/backfeed
#
rhiaro
...also did hosted known sites disappear?
#
kousu_xmpp
I saw the backfeed page. It seems ..hard in general.
#
kousu_xmpp
I am glad there are people who have the stomach for that, I guess
#
rhiaro
never mind, found new hosted site, just the button seems to have disappeared from the homepage..

#
kousu

#
kousu
also, is there any way to do federated friends-locked posts?
#
GWG
kousu: I'm pro-WordPress, as that is what I run. But there are other options of course.
#
KartikPrabhu
what is projects?
#
GWG
kousu: Private posting isn't widely supported.

kousu: check out known, it's probably the most mature indieweb-first CMS

good evening #indiewebcamp!
#
tantek
and with Kyle's example we're up to three consumable uses of u-video
#
tantek.com
edited /post-type-discovery (+74) "video - has converged on 3 real world examples using u-video markup, incorporate before photo"
(view diff)
#
cweiske
but the video there is just an example/demo
#
cweiske
I wouldn't count it as video post
#
tantek
it could, but it's clearly structured as an article
#
cweiske
so the algo is only used for pages without post type markup?
#
tantek
not sure, it has some existing uses, could be used for more
#
tantek
nonetheless - not sure why you said "then ... would count" - as that permalink lacks any u-video
#
cweiske
your algorithm only talks about video tags
#
tantek
no, properties
#
tantek
but you're right. video tags would lead to false positives.
#
tantek
it's worth capturing that
#
KartikPrabhu
tantek: do you think u-video is appropriate on iframe embeds? e.g.: https://kartikprabhu.com/notes/like-uncanny-valley
#
tantek
I don't
#
tantek
because it's not your video
#
tantek
and you have no video file to point to
#
tantek
u-video is for the actual video file, not a script that does something to do something, nor an iframe that loads something to load something
[kevinmarks] joined the channel
#
[kevinmarks]
|Unmung.com generates video tags with u-video from video podcasts
#
tantek
but it links directly to the video files

KartikPrabhu

cweiske++ appreciate the article with a primary video (but not video post). helps subsantiate the FAQ with a real world example.

Loqi
cweiske has 39 karma
#
KartikPrabhu
tantek: I would object to this wording "Also, video posts should be your video, something you recorded, or animated yourself." in the case of a response-context. If I reply to a video post I would like to have a h-cite>u-video in the reply-context
#
KartikPrabhu
granted I have no examples but I am thinking of vimeo.youtube response contexts
#
tantek
which use iframes, not direct video links
#
KartikPrabhu
tantek: yes. I am looking at the vimeo api to see if I can get to the video url.
#
tantek
I don't understand your objection. It's worded about "video posts" and you're talking about a "reply"
#
tantek
also why I worded it as a *should*
#
KartikPrabhu
fair enough.
#
cweiske
KartikPrabhu, youtube-dl gives it to you

in following on the /video post and poster image discussion yesterday, I've come up with what I think is a good (hopefully easy to remember, hard to false positive) start to a plain text shorthand for a video with fallback hyperlink, optionally with poster image.

shaners, I'm curious about why you decided to use the poster image explicitly also as a fallback img (instead of making a separate poster vs. fallback) on videos.
[shaners] joined the channel
#
[shaners]
Because I don't have a separate image to use a fallback.
#
[shaners]
And I'm iOS only for the foreseeable future and can't easily do those tasks. :confused:
#
tantek
and is the value you get from having a fallback worth duplicating the image URL then?
#
tantek
what tasks?
#
tantek
I'm considering the same question and was curious about your reasoning.
friedcell joined the channel
#
tantek
I'm wondering what browsers today either 1) don't show video and thus would show the fallback image, or 2) have a user option to turn off videos, and would thus show the fallback image (presumably instead of the poster of a video which can't be played).
#
aaronpk
don't forget about "browsers" such as readers
#
tantek
sure, though in their case, they either support e-content, or if they only do plain text the presence/absence of an image makes no difference to them.

let's see if this works. <@U03QR2B3P vs <@U03QR2B3P: ...
#
tantek
aaronpk nope
#
tantek
shaners, I've tried several name ideas and they all so far are already used to mean other things
#
kylewm
I like Markdown because it's "good enough" and widely available
#
bear
"pubnotes" because it's simple enough to use in a pub on your phone
#
tantek
kylewm we differ on "good enough"
#
KartikPrabhu
i don't like Markdown because I never remember the syntax for things
#
tantek
that's a key reason I don't either. e.g. link and image syntax is totally borken in markdown
#
KartikPrabhu
well, i don't think it is broken. It works if you remember it, but i just find writing plain HTML much easier
#
tantek
kylewm, KartikPrabhu all of these problems make markdown *not* "good enough" IMO: tantek.com/w/Markdown#Problemssummary
#
kylewm
it's only difficult to remember for me when I'm switch back and forth with mediawiki :)
#
tantek
KartikPrabhu: my perspective is from the plain text side, Markdown's syntax fails to read as plain text, and thus fails it's #1 design criteria
#
tantek
s/it's/its
#
Loqi
tantek meant to say: KartikPrabhu: my perspective is from the plain text side, Markdown's syntax fails to read as plain text, and thus fails its #1 design criteria
#
bear
except for the link syntax, markdown IMO comes closer to plain text then most of the wiki formats out there
friedcell joined the channel
#
tantek
bear - nah, the image embedding is so not plain text either
#
aaronpk
i always write a preprocessor before I hand off the text to the markdown parser so that I can add back mediawiki link syntax
#
tantek
nor are code blocks
#
bear
but I do look forward to enhancments
#
tantek
and markdown always does false positives when I type what I think is normal plain text into github comments
#
bear
ah, I was lumping image into links -- and it gets even worse for other embed types
#
tantek
which is far worse
#
tantek
right, mediawiki does not pretend to be plain text friendly, so that's fine
#
tantek
whereas markdown is kind of a false promise
#
bear
yep, once you get a beta version going, the first thing i'll do is write a conversion service for myself

I was wondering about ttext or tmark

because t == text
#
tantek
right
#
tantek
emphasizes the friendliness to text
friedcell joined the channel
#
tantek
whereas "down" just sounds like a downer :P
#
bear
textmark is nice but a shade too close to textmate
#
tantek
textmark is also heavily overloaded already (see google search)

oh, i'm not bothering my name suggestions with the hinderance of facts right now, i'm in too good of a mood this morning ;)
#
tantek

#
bear
oh, linode reboots (just now reading backscroll) -- now i'm really glad we have multiple indieauth servers
#
tantek
now that the "stuff" season is upon us, what services (or indie web software) does everyone use to keep track of their "stuff"
#
tantek
whether books, cds, dvds, games, toys etc.
#
tantek
says as he looks at a couple of boxes of stuff to sell/donate.
#
bear
the receipt box as I am gifting to goodwill most things I unbox
#
bear
"well that has been in a box for 6 months" == "goodwill"
#
aaronpk
heh I should use 6 months as my criteria. I think I'm at 2 years or so right now.
#
tantek
bear, the reason I ask is I wonder if an indieweb solution to this would encourage more swapping / infinite loaning
fkooman joined the channel
#
bear
ah - I was wondering
#
hat428
I usually keep stuff until I move
#
tantek
I've definitely had stuff set aside where when I've had guests/visitors they've been very happy to get to "borrow" stuff (without expectation of any particular return time)
friedcell joined the channel
#
tantek
the thinking is that if I published that to a small set of friends, then maybe they could see things they would really like and request / receive them
#
tantek
I like the idea of things I bought going to a specific good home
#
tantek
instead of who knows if it will end up anywhere with good will etc.
#
tantek
especially when you have eclectic things
#
aaronpk
me too. I would much rather give things to friends even more than selling them on craigslist.
#
tantek
right. that.
#
tantek
so we should be able to solve this right?
#
tantek
I feel like it begins by having a system to just track your own stuff yourself
kousu[xmpp] joined the channel
#
tantek
and then you publish a subset of that, the subset you wouldn't mind just giving to friends
#
bear
all it should really need is a tag so that it can be collected on a /share or /stuff page
#
tantek
as a design constraint (to make tracking simpler/easier), I want to be clear this is for non-perishable stuff
#
tantek
hence the examples of books, cds, dvds, games, toys etc.
#
bear
each item would be an h-entry with the content of the entry any desired microformat to describe the item
#
tantek
bear, I suppose h-entry is usable for that but feels like overkill for what is just a list
#
aaronpk
I like this plan. I have a few boxes of things I need to sort through.
#
tantek
also, the purchase or sale/giving/donation would make more sense as dated h-entrys
#
bear
true, but a list would not be able to be rsvp'd to show it's borrrowed status :)
#
tantek
I'm wondering more about "inventory"
#
bear
or micropub "flagged" in some way
#
tantek
obviously related: wishlists
#
tantek
does anyone here publish wishlists on their own site?
#
tantek
(instead of a silo like Amazon)
#
bear
I have never caught on to the idea of a wishlist, I tend to be a "buy it if I need it" kinda person
#
tantek
bear, wishlists are useful for both procastinating buying things, and clustering them for later purchases
#
bear
ah, one of these days i'll be able to plan that far ahead ;)

shaners, I figured you'd have some good critical thinking on this :)
#
[shaners]
In the meantime, I have a challenge for you to test your hypothesis. And exercise some corners and edges that you don't mention in your write up.
#
tantek
shaners - I am - most of what I've written up I'm doing live on my site, either in just plain text, or plain text that auto-converts to markup
#
[shaners]
The challenge for you is to convert the Homesteading markdown readme to <your thing>.
#
tantek
I am interested in corners and edges

#
tantek
I'm more likely to take on the challenge of writing whole blog posts myself using "tmark"
friedcell and squeakytoy joined the channel
#
tantek
it would be a better usability test to see how it felt to you to convert your readme - but I'm not asking that (yet) of course
#
tantek
I despise having to read markdown "source" so I wouldn't be a good converter test.
#
[shaners]
I wouldn't is the thing. It's your jam.
#
tantek
the very fact that one can tell if something is markdown *source* is a key "hey this is obvious" problem with markdown
#
tantek
markdown is not plain text enough
#
[shaners]
Then don't read the source. Read the html.
#
[shaners]
Or just look at the webpage view and write it up from there

Loqi
Ok, I'll tell him that when I see him next
#
[shaners]
I created a templating language a few years ago to address *some* of the same issues you originally raised way back when. Mine was not aiming to be plaintext though.
#
[shaners]
Needless to say, my usage of it didn't last long. And I've basically abandoned it. Having gone back to full HTML + erb (similarish to PHP views).
#
tantek
templating is a whole different problem
#
tantek
I'm likely to solve it with coming up with a pure HTML way of doing templates
#
tantek
I really dislike all the <% <$ <# whatever extra template markup

[shaners]
But there was trying to do what you were too around using #id.class etc. which you've since dropped.

[shaners]
Dang's syntax is basically this:
#
[shaners]
<tag content tag>
#
[shaners]
<tag#id.class[attr=value] content tag>

ben_thatmustbeme: tantek left you a message 21 hours, 43 minutes ago: check out how shaners marks up his video posts with <video><source>, and consider doing the same. right now your video posts are not expressing the u-video URL since it is not on the same element as the URL: https://indiewebcamp.com/video#Ben_Roberts http://indiewebcamp.com/irc/2015-12-13/line/1450039500517
#
ben_thatmustbeme
emoji recognizer working... or at least looks to be working quite well
#
tantek
ben_thatmustbeme: mind fixing your u-video markup?
#
[shaners]
Kylewm The code to run the parser is : <http://Dang.it|Dang.it(string)
#
tantek
shaners, bear re: the "lists of stuff", for now I just keep static HTML pages with <li> (from years of habits of doing so)
#
[shaners]
I mostly just stopped keeping track of my stuff because I have so little of it anymore.
#
[shaners]
I live in 80 square feet of van after all.
#
tantek
that should make it easier right?
#
tantek
(less stuff, less tracking)
#
ben_thatmustbeme
tantek, i really dislike the idea of putting <video> on all source tags, it really should be able to support alternate video encodings
#
ben_thatmustbeme
perhaps it should be e-video ... or really a containing span with e-video
#
tantek
ben_thatmustbeme: pretty sure I discovered that multiple encodings are no longer needed
#
tantek
so I'm going to pushback on that since keeping the simple case as simple as possible is more important
#
ben_thatmustbeme
its important to keep it simple, but umm, i'm on firefox and looking at http://veganstraightedge.com/videos and seeing errors about it not supported
#
ben_thatmustbeme
so how is multiple encodings not needed?
#
tantek
ben_thatmustbeme: because newer posts
#
tantek
shane's videos are old
friedcell joined the channel
#
tantek
> 2 yrs old
#
tantek
if you publish video *today* you can do so with .mp4 that works cross browser
#
tantek
I know this, because I just did it
#
aaronpk
should really go re-encode all his videos from <2005
#
tantek
^^^ and that's exactly how people are going to deal with it
#
tantek
easier to re-encode/upload/replace a bunch of video files
#
ben_thatmustbeme
except you don't always get a choice of encoding on video... mobilepub is stuck with whatever the phone decides to output
#
tantek
than to maintain a bunch of multi-encoding markup
#
aaronpk
hopefully i still have something that can read .wmv files :-/
#
ben_thatmustbeme
mplayer reads wmv i think
#
ben_thatmustbeme
you should be able to reencode with it
#
aaronpk
i'm hoping ffmpeg can just deal with it
#
tantek
" stuck with whatever the phone decides to output" <-- then you still have only one encoding anyway
funwhilelost joined the channel
#
tantek
ben_thatmustbeme: I think you're worrying about a theoretical future expansion of legacy uploading/encodings
#
ben_thatmustbeme
i'm worried about CURRENT support
#
tantek
how? both publishing scenarios you provided had only one encoding
#
tantek
therefore the markup can be kept simple
#
tantek
no one who publishes old videos is bothering with publishing multiple encodings (including you)
#
tantek
why not fix your actual markup now and procrastinate worrying about multiple encodings until you care enough to publish them?
snarfed joined the channel
#
ben_thatmustbeme
i would think it really should support it, but you are correct, until there is a documented need for it, i suppose there is no point right now
#
ben_thatmustbeme
though i would not admit the need for such parsing will not be of possible need in the future... especially with multiple image files
#
tantek
yup - cross that bridge when we get to it
#
tantek
until then, let's stick with simple, minimal, existing publishing practice
#
ben_thatmustbeme
in other news WOOHOO single emoji recognizer works now
#
ben_thatmustbeme
i had to do some bitwise math in order to go from utf8->url encoded hex -> decimal value
#
ben_thatmustbeme
but it was the only reliable function i could find to do it
snarfed1 joined the channel
#
ben_thatmustbeme
need to put a bunch more tests in, especially for those multi-character emoji

on a side note, i now know how utf8 encoding in binary works :P
