that's what trackbacks/pingbacks were all about then

I am not even sure if any of them actually ran trackbacks/pingbacks on their sites. I just randomly bumped into this and thought (with its @-marker) it was extremely close to what we are doing.

How do I format a reference to myself (I have a user page /User:Julian.foad.me.uk) in {{}} in the RSVP section?
#
julianf
Just tried 'julianf' and 'julianfoad' and 'Julian.foad.me.uk' but the preview doesn't indicate they work... or doesn't the preview expand template references?
#
Zegnat
They aren’t generated on the fly, we have all created our own wiki templates
#
julianf
Huh. So as well as an entry in /irc-people and a user page, I need a third thing? :-/
#
Zegnat
You don’t *need* a wiki template
#
Zegnat
aaronpk, tantek, would there be a way to auto-generate those people-templates?

OK, added a template; thanks Zegnat. Used it to add my RSVP.

General question/thoughts: Matrix.
#
Zegnat

Loqi

#
Zegnat
what is matrix?
#
julianf
It looks to me like Matrix is a much better fit for IW principles than most other things (GNU social, Mattermost, ...).
#
julianf
I wonder, do others agree, and if so should we be trying to support and encourage it? That's how it seems to me.
#
sknebel
Matrix looks interesting, yes.
#
sknebel
haven't tried it yet, it's on the long list of things to do ;)
#
sknebel
I think there is a public freenode bridge, so it should be compatible with this channel from the get-go
#
julianf
I recently started trying out UBOS (formerly IndieBox). UBOS website has no integration between IRC mailinglists and archiving of content (no IRC logs) and I suggested using something like Mattermost or Matrix for their own site.
#
julianf
I'm wondering the same about indieweb.org.
#
julianf
Is the desire to run one's own combination of tools stronger than the drive to use something like Matrix and perhaps encxourage other IW-like projects to use it too and work together to improve its interoperability?
snarfed joined the channel
#
julianf
(Possible other projects that might be friendly to cooperate: UBOS; Matrix itself and some of its client & server projects; some things at Mozilla; Dowse.eu; for a start.)
#
julianf
I'm feeling like it might be possible to get a bigger "push" behind such a system, if it truly seems to be going in the right direction, by sharing some of the effort of setting up a few instances.
#
julianf
I'm feeling like it might be possible to get a bigger "push" behind such a system, if it truly seems to be going in the right direction, by sharing some of the effort of setting up a few instances.
#
julianf
(sorry, dup)
#
julianf
Like... I'd like to set up my own instance, but haven't much time to dedicate to doing it myself with all the trial-and-error that I know it would require.
#
Zegnat
How much of Matrix is just communication, versus actual websites though?
#
sknebel
if I understand it, closest to Matrix is XMPP/Jabber
#
sknebel
in that there is a federation of servers that users register at and connect to using local clients
#
julianf
But if someone -- whether individuals or iw.org as a group -- would be setting it up at the same time, and maybe one or two or three or more of us individuals too -- then perhaps that "League of Extraordinary Websites" could be partly kick-started this way.
#
Zegnat
I wonder if IW is the place to push those protocols, versus HTTP protocols.
#
Zegnat
But that was a discussion had at IWC Berlin too, IIRC
#
Zegnat
Wouldn’t the league be there in a “more IW” way if we get more people to start on Known instead of WordPress?
#
julianf
Matrix, as I understand it, has the comms plus a strong notion of permanent content (chat threads) which can be distributed.
#
Zegnat
What is permanence?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "permanence" yet. Would you like to create it?
Pierre-O joined the channel
#
Zegnat
Permanence is the idea of keeping content around even after the originator might no longer be available.
#
Zegnat
Please edit that page, permanence is always an interesting item.
#
tantek
well we have /longevity
#
julianf
+1 for advocating Known over WP, yes, too, but that's not an IRC/mailinglist/forum system.
#
tantek
permanence << [[longevity]]

#
tantek
julianf - I don't understand your question about Matrix and indieweb. What about Matrix is "web"?
#
julianf
What I'm observing is that while there are many silo-like open-source chat/communication systems (Mattermost, GNU-social, ...) only a very few seem to take the approach of designing a federation model and APIs. Tent was one, but seems to be falling behind, last time I looked.
#
julianf
tantek: Do you mean how is it "web" as in web-of-hyperlinks?

#
sknebel_matrix_t
hi via matrix bridge :)
#
Zegnat
tantek, didn’t we have a text on the wiki somewhere on why the bar is high for joining the indieweb? (E.g. owning a domain etc.)
#
sknebel_matrix_t
and apparently some people already use #indieweb via matrix, which I never even noticed before
#
Zegnat
I seem to recall reading it at one of the last IWCs, but I cant find it anymore.
#
Zegnat
No, sknebel, I recall reading a page somewhere with the “reason” for having these hurdles.
#
aaronpk
What is IndieWeb?
#
Loqi
The IndieWeb is about owning your domain and using it as your primary identity, to publish on your own site (optionally syndicate elsewhere), and ownyourdata https://indieweb.org/IndieWeb
#
julianf
On my personal web site I want to be able to set up, easily, things like: an IRC-like system, especially one for private use by friends and family, privately archived and not publically accessible. Similarly for other styles of communication. Yet able to join in with public comms when wanted.
#
sknebel_matrix_t
julianf: I'm not sure you need a large push to get started on Matrix -> at least initially you can use "public" servers and interfaces like I'm doing right now -> no need to set anything up
#
aaronpk
Theres certainly overlap in the concepts of self hosting tools, but Matrix isn't really "webby" so it's kind of a separate thing than IndieWeb. Certainly there's a lot of good things about Matrix especially compared to other chat systems. But I'm not aware of anyone using Matrix to host their website for example
#
Zegnat
aaronpk putting my thoughts down in words better than I was doing
#
julianf
sknebel_matrix_t: By "push" I mean, if you agree it's doing good work in making a truly decentralized "host-your-own-part-if-you-wish" work, then let's use it here (and yes then I'll try to do my part and use it personally) and help others to use it, and then we'll be able to help get relevant IW standards integrated in it where appropriate etc.
nikivi joined the channel
#
julianf
I totally don't think it's aimed at hosting a "web site", only at hosting the chatty parts of one's own web presence (~"site").
#
aaronpk
julianf: this chat room is available via a web interface on indieweb.org, IRC on Freenode, and Slack. It's also possible to join via Matrix as sknebel_matrix_t demonstrated, so I think that's about all one can hope for in that regard!

The website and Slack bridge is done with a home-grown tool available here https://github.com/indieweb/chat.indieweb.org https://github.com/aaronpk/Slack-IRC-Gateway
#
tantek
tries to re-read logs
#
tantek
julianf, chat != web
#
tantek
that's the larger point here
#
tantek
chat is ephemeral, the web persists because things (statements, posts, etc.) have HTTP URLs that people can share to refer to them
#
tantek
whereas chat systems in general do not care about such (persistent) references
#
tantek
ironically, I feel like we have had this discussion a few times, but have no idea where it was (is?) captured
#
Zegnat
snarfed, if you are reading, someone here wonders how long it will take for the first flickr like to get through
#
tantek
though the last time I remember an indepth discussion of this was arguing with the XMPP advocates (and projects that use it) that XMPP was a non-starter in terms of a federated social *web* (2010 FSWS discussions)
#
snarfed
snarfed: you're talking about bridgy?
#
snarfed
tell them to click the "Poll now" button on their user page :P
#
tantek
and that was before Google dropped XMPP support
#
Zegnat
I’ll tell them
#
Zegnat
snarfed: they are saying poll now works, but that automatic doesn’t always seem to work. But that might just be a feeling they are having.
#
snarfed
automatic isn't immediate, it's periodic, since it polls

would be curious how marcjenkins went from static to WP. Did he find an importer?

Hi there. First time joining here. https://masoud.abkenar.net/ I just put rel=me links in my website. Do you think this is a proper patch to indiwebify this Pelican theme?
#
masoud
Or it can be enhaced? I read somewhere about h-cards. Not sure how to use it and how it could help.
#
KartikPrabhu
masoud: if you want them in the head, you might want to use <link> instead of <a>
#
KartikPrabhu
also welcome

addal
I'm not sure why you hid them, the idea is the embed microformats in content that is already on the page
#
addal
It looks like the theme has icons for social media, those can be rel=me links :)
#
masoud
@KartikPrabhu Oh I see! I will fix that. Thank you!
#
KartikPrabhu
masoud: also Addal is right, if there are already "social media" links in the actual content, you could add rel-me to them directly instead of duplicating it in the head
#
masoud
@addal I have removed the social media links from my own page. That's why.
#
masoud
And I have blogs in subfolders on which I'd like to use webmentions and stuff.
#
masoud
which brings me to another question: is it enough to have rel=me links on the home page, and have blogs in subfolders without rel=me links? In this case, https://masoud.abkenar.net/blog/fa/

Hi masoud. rel-me links on the homepage only should be fine. You can try signing in to the wiki using your domain now, if you haven't already
