wow 10 is a lot, especially compared to 4 on Twitter. why 10 I wonder.
#
GWG
Afternoon
#
tantek_
ponders how to decide how many photos to put in /multi-photo post
#
tantek_
also I wonder if they all have to be the same shape
#
tantek_
er, aspect ratio
#
tantek_
considers 5 photos, just to put one more than what gets POSSEd to Twitter
#
bear
lock: lok, lukan, loka, locen (all from entymology links)
#
tantek_
considers different layout for /multi-photo post
#
aaronpk
I limited my Multi photo posts to 4 as well
#
aaronpk
considering what to do with more than 4 now, especially if one is a video

oh dear I just realized my Instagram Copy photo post bookmarklet likely needs updating
#
tantek_
at a minimum to for multi-photo support
benwerd joined the channel
#

also no photo editing either in IG multi-photo posts (like rotation, trapezoid effects)
#
tantek_
no person-tags either!
#

alright I'm going to just take notes on what needs to be improved in the bookmarklet rather than trying to fix it for this post

Hi GWG, Tantek. I've been working on maybe doing some Japanese posts, the problem is my vocabulary is very limited.

aaronpk you could call your authorization endpoint signet?

[chrisaldrich]
With the excitement for the new Instagram multi-photo posts at hand, did anyone ever figure out a way to POSSE/PESOS their "Your story" posts? Or were those so ephemeral they weren't bothering with?
#
tantek_
sounds like Cignet - healthcare provider?
#
tantek_
what is a story?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "story" yet. Would you like to create it?
#
tantek_
chrisaldrich looks like we need a definition of exactly what such posts are, perhaps with Silo Examples of Instagram and Snapchat
#
[chrisaldrich]
I suppose I know enough Spanish I could make a shot at that first, but I'm glad that I've figured out how to do hiragana and some katakana with my English language keyboard.
#
tantek_
now manually person-tagging with URL, name, Twitter handle

what is turn off commenting
#
Loqi
turn off commenting is a UI option for the entirety of a blog or per post that disables and removes any commenting UI, and possibly even disables receiving comments via protocols like Webmention https://indieweb.org/turn_off_commenting

benwerd, the past few days have had some folks here finding challenges with making likes vs reposts work in Known, e.g. using kylewm's plugin
#
tantek_
perhaps you could take a look? check recent IRC logs (search) for it
#
[chrisaldrich]
tantek_ benwerd, I think it was dgold primarily, and I think he ultimately got sorted, but it required using 0.9.1 rather than 0.9.2 or the current version from the repo. I never heard what the ultimate problem ended up being, though I imagine he could let us know to make sure the potential problem doesn't happen again. jeremycherfas may have had a similar issue, but I'm not sure if he got sorted out yet.

[scottgruber]
chrisaldrich. Interesting. I just did a quick look at Spritz. I haven't thought of those kind of readers in a while. I think the style is called Karaoke reader with one word flashing at a time. I tried but couldn't get the hang of it. I see its an option in Marvin. Maybe I'll try it again.
#
[chrisaldrich]
Most of them are based on psychology studies from the 70s called Rapid Serial Visual Presentation. Spritz claims they patented the concept and have threatened litigation to clear the field. It's good for newspaper/magazine articles and fiction but is horrid for reading technical material

Hello, how is your return to active status treating you?
#
GWG
Had time to explore the changes?
#
jeremycherfas
GWG: I’ve just converted on of my WP sites to use the senpress theme. Haven’t done anything yet about the indieweb plugins. I see from the chat that there are modifications under way. Do you think it might be a good idea to wait a while before going ahead with that?
#
jeremycherfas
Not in any rush.
#
dgold
jeremycherfas: which of your sites is using Senpress?
#
dgold
I'd like to see it working in the hands of someone who has WP abilities
#
jeremycherfas
Fornacalia.com which might need to be www.fornacalia.com
#
jeremycherfas
But I haven’t done a whole lot of styling yet.
#
jeremycherfas
My playtime today was devoted to starting on Review pages in my Grav site.
#
dgold

#
jeremycherfas
Yah think?
#
jeremycherfas
I need to get rid of the dorky avatar, author name and all that, for a start. Maybe color code some of the H2 and H3. That kind of thing.
#
jeremycherfas
Oh, hang on. I’ve just noticed that I decided on ZenPress rather than Senpress in the end.
#
dgold
I like the minimalism thing - I've never been able to pull it off though
#
jeremycherfas
Thanks. Less is more.
#
GWG
What modifications specifically? We are always improving. I am on a program to improve all the ones I am involved in before starting anything new
#
jeremycherfas
I can’t be specific; just things that flitted by in the discussions. It seemed like there were quite a few changes and cleanups being contemplated. If those changes are liely to have an impact on how I manage things at my end, then I will probably hold off for a while.

aaronpk if you want an sms server, buy a cheap thinkpad t400/x200 w/ a 3g modem, add gammu-smsd on it with a stupid linux and you're done
#
aaronpk
i wonder how the cost of that compares to using twilio
#
petermolnar
5gbp per month -> unlimited sms within network, 500(?) outside
#
aaronpk
we don't have plans like that in the US :)
#
petermolnar
I'm doing that because I sometimes misconfigure alerts and they send _a lot_ of false things
#
petermolnar
and I don't want to destroy my wallet with an external service
#
sgreger
sknebel, thanks for following up on the chat question. it'S rather low priority at this point, i was mainly curious are those "annoying pop-up services" really the only way to do such thing.

aaronpk: i have been playing around with distributed indieauth (trying to write a little piece that authenticates me to log in to the wiki based on me being logged in to my wordpress site) - i'm running in one issue though
#
sknebel
found this, which is bound to telegram and I don't like the UI, both on the web and telegram side, but at least its recent and open-source: https://github.com/idoco/intergram
#
sgreger
without touching my code, sometimes it works and i get authenticated, other times i get an error page
#
sgreger
is the authentication through indieauth.com throttled? like only three logins per hour or so?
#
sgreger
(more likely the error is in my code, but just thought to check)
#
sgreger

snarfed joined the channel
#
aaronpk
that's odd, let me look at some logs
#
sgreger
that would be great. i just tried a moment ago (after 2h break) and received that error again. debugging is a bit tricky, as it seems to be an issue with the final step (indieauth.com verifying the code from my endpoint, the POST request...)
#
aaronpk
aha, it's getting a 301 redirect on the post
#
sgreger
sknebel: thanks, i'll have a look at it
#
sgreger
aaronpk: my site returns a 301?
#
aaronpk
your authorization_endpoint on your home page is https://sebastiangreger.net/indieauth but that is actually just a redirect to https://sebastiangreger.net/indieauth/
#
aaronpk
so the POST fails
#
aaronpk
we were just talking about this yesterday :)

Good morning, indieweb

"An authorization endpoint must be able to both generate authorization codes as well as verify authorization codes." -> so this means, my little hack is not really a proper endpoint, because it does not allow verifying codes from other sites?
#
aaronpk
the wiki had to verify your code at your authorization endpoint
#
aaronpk
that's the verification it's talking about

jeremycherfas, I had a child theme of sempress a while back which was probably pretty close. I didn't realize how nice senpress was until I got lost in the rabbit hole of content on fornicalia
#
voxpelli
sknebel: sgreger: about the chat thing, not very indie:ish, but Intercom seems to be a very powerful and good such service
#
jeremycherfas
I’ve asked Mathias about this on github, but wondering about the structure. As he has it, zenpress is inside ZenPress, and like that, WP won’t see the parent style. if I take zenpress out of ZenPress, everything is fine. But I no longer have the SASS.
#
jeremycherfas
I don’t know enough to know whether that will break down the line.
#
sgreger
above guote is from https://indieweb.org/authorization-endpoint > the way i read it, my enpoint should also be capable of what indieauth.com does?
#
sgreger
...the "verify" part
#
aaronpk
oh, no not at all
#
aaronpk
refresh. is that clearer?
#
sgreger
:) yes!
#
[chrisaldrich]
jeremycherfas, usually child themes are more important when building on top of themes from the repository that will update in the future (so you won't overwrite your changes/work). SenPress (the child) is pretty solid and unlikely to change as much as SemPress (the parent), so you probably won't go too wrong in just hacking directly on top of the child theme.
#
jeremycherfas
True, but I also want to keep my changes fairly discreet. All working well locally, but I’ll wait to hear before I publish.
#
[chrisaldrich]
I don't think SenPress is in the main WP repository, so you're unlikely to see an autoupdate message and accidentally overwrite your work there, but be aware that it could happen.
#
[chrisaldrich]
(and make sure you keep a back up just in case)
#
[chrisaldrich]
I saw your question to GWG earlier. Like him, I think that a lot of the WordPress Indieweb plugins are pretty mature, so you're unlikely to have any major issues down the road if you start using them now. Most changes will just add small bits of functionality that you might not even notice since they're in the background.

[chrisaldrich]
It's not like the situation a year or two ago where there were some major changes which might have kept you on your toes (but which honestly weren't hard to overcome with help on Github or here in chat).
#
jeremycherfas
Chrisaldrich: Thanks. Yes, that’s next on the list for that site,, then the other sites. But first I want to tweak how it looks just a bit.
#
[chrisaldrich]
I like that it's a much prettier visual experience over the prior incarnation which was either 2015 or 2012 if I remember?
#
[chrisaldrich]
Though for a semantically marked up site about bread, one would expect you might have "breadcrumbs"? https://wordpress.org/plugins/breadcrumb-navxt/
#
[chrisaldrich]
Apparently not even Loqi would laugh at that one. ?
#
[chrisaldrich]
jeremycherfas, I've been thinking more about an indieweb podcast; last night for HWC quiet writing hour I started outlining some potential interviews along with lists of evergreen questions
#
jeremycherfas
That’s very cool. I’d love to collaborate.
#
jeremycherfas
I spent this morning looking through the chat logs and thinking I’d been safely tucked up and fast asleep.
#
[chrisaldrich]
You have far more experience and expertise on the technical side so that would be a grand help.
#
[chrisaldrich]
Don't let me keep you from dreaming about bread...
#
sgreger
voxpelli: thanks for the hint. but indeed, not the "indie" solution i was daydreaming of.
#
aaronpk
now i want to make a chat widget for my site again
#
jeremycherfas
Maybe we could find a time to chat one to one about how to proceed?
#
[chrisaldrich]
I try to be careful of reading through chat logs too often. Causes too many itches I don't have time to scratch.
#
jeremycherfas
I’m horribly completist like that.
#
[chrisaldrich]
With the time difference (from Los Angeles to Rome?) what might work well for you?
#
sgreger
my idea was that it could be some very simple and sleek ui, which then talks to some "bridge" connecting with my preferred chat ui
#
[chrisaldrich]
I'm typically a night owl, but I'm often up early on Tuesdays and Thursdays for occasional conference calls to the UK/France.
#
jeremycherfas
Chrisaldrich: I’m an early bird, so if you are up late and I am up early, that works.

There are definitely things in that discussion worth addressing. It also shows that people (with the best intentions) visiting indieweb.org have a hard time figuring out what it is about.

With things like webmention and micropub as far along as they are, we're getting closer and closer to Generations 2 and 3. A few larger scale projects like Manton's or what I suspect DreamHost wants to do with it in relation to WordPress may help be tipping points to scaling these functionalities to a larger audience.

The real question is "how would you sell this to your mom?" We're really trying to sell a nebulously defined abstract construct rather than a concrete end-product.

That makes it sound like we are an incubator for the standards of tomorrow
#
[chrisaldrich]
Facebook, Twitter, and others cornered the market before the necessary standards to overcome the hurdle of "Web 2.0" were created, so it's a bigger uphill battle trying to regain that ground. The nice part is that many people, as evinced in that link, know we could do better. The best part about IndieWeb is that it's actually starting to physically happen here. How do we underline this point on the front page?

One of the great things in IndieWeb is that we can support both experimental dev work and mature products at once – unlike Twitter that closed down their API when they needed to polish their UX

So there can be some IndieWeb endeavors that are at the very polished state and at the same time be some others that are very rough – silos can't do that because they often need to fit it all into one product

#

it should take about 5-10 minutes to complete
#
aaronpk
and I don't have any except for my own yet because I just made it :)
#
[chrisaldrich]
That's a great point voxpelli. In fact, when was the last time a social platform made a large transformative change in it's own functionality. It seems like the market is relatively saturated. Take yesterday: Instagram unveils multi-photo which seems like something they should have had years ago, but only seems to expand on their own "stories" functionality and making it more permanent, while underneath it all isn't it just geared toward try
#
[chrisaldrich]
Snapchat's lunch?

[chrisaldrich]
Often we see major corporations simply supporting the masses and not attempting to push the boundaries. I love that indieweb seems to be pushing on the boundaries. Reminds me of some interesting philosophy in Marco Arment's podcast recently: http://boffosocko.com/2017/02/02/%F0%9F%8E%A7-under-the-radar-65-getting-sherlocked-under-the-radar/

#
voxpelli
Yeah, I think some are so set on the silos mindset that they think that as a project matures it has to inherently stop developing itself, and that should certainly not be the case with IndieWeb
#
[chrisaldrich]
What is sherlocked?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "sherlocked" yet. Would you like to create it?
#
[chrisaldrich]
Sherlocked is when an individual developer's project is knocked off by a much larger corporation, typically subsuming a large, but not complete portion of the functionality.
#
Loqi
ok, I added "https://overcast.fm/+FgnZDbtyM" to the "See Also" section of /Sherlocked
#
[chrisaldrich]
Building on voxpelli's thought, I'd submit that Indieweb is building something which inherently can't be sherlocked because of continual growth and development.
