GWG
snarfed: Just asking because you filed an issue on acegiak's issue tracker. acegiak's version is the salmention mods.
begriffs, snarfed and tantek joined the channel
#
snarfed
GWG: yup! it's always confused me that both acegiak's repo and pfefferle's fork have issues enabled, and have separate sets of issues
#
snarfed
i understand that acegiak's is salmentions, but imho maintaining both as divergent for so long has actively discouraged other contributors, including me
#
GWG
snarfed: acegiak has said that pfefferle's branch is the root one.
#
snarfed
i've nudged them both consistently over time to merge them. (similar to how i've advocated for merging the webmention and semantic linkbacks asap!)
#
snarfed
GWG: sure. i understand. it's still confusing though. not a good long term state.
#
GWG
snarfed: I'm trying to fix that issue by moving features over to Webmentions over time.
#
GWG
I could write a merged plugin, but I think without working on some of those issues, it would add more confusion
#
snarfed
ok! i just wonder about timeline. seems like those kinds of efforts have been in flight for...years?
#
GWG
snarfed: Actually, I've only thought about it seriously since the Summit
#
snarfed
ok. i've been harrassing them to merge the forks for years at least
#
GWG
snarfed: I know.
#
GWG
If you look at the code now, versus a year ago, there have been major changes.
#
GWG
snarfed: Just, there is still the problem of 'like', 'bookmark', etc being stored as meta, for example.
#
GWG
The fact that the display is built dynamically...so some of the enhancements vanish if you disable the plugin
#
GWG
Need for display improvements.
#
GWG
Parsing improvements.
#
GWG
Etc.
#
snarfed
yup! understood, they're definitely nontrivial codebases
#
snarfed
and thank you for all the work you do! much appreciated
#
GWG
snarfed: I wish I had more hours in the day.
#
GWG
As last night indicates, I should be careful when I'm tired.

what is on this day?
#
Loqi
on this day is a feature of several silos where they show you posts you made on the current (typically Gregorian) day of the year in previous years https://indieweb.org/on_this_day
#
tantek
what is YEARS AGO TODAY?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "YEARS AGO TODAY" yet. Would you like to create it? https://indieweb.org/s/10dd
#
tantek
years ago today is [[on this day]]

heads up for anyone scraping instagram's html/json, they changed it (non-backward compatible) recently, so you'll need to update your code

granary support soon, i'll post it as an example

I believe I saw that there is an effort to standardize the Open Source Licenses that indieweb projects use? I tried to search around for it but didn’t find anything. Is there a specific license decided upon to try to standardize on?
davidmead joined the channel
#
[eddie]
That’s what I was trying to find! Thanks ?
DanC joined the channel
#
Zegnat
[eddie], please do weigh in on the licensing issue if you have an opinion on the matter
tantek joined the channel
#
aaronpk
ownyourswarm is going to use micropub updates to add checkin photos
#
aaronpk
since the photo is not present in the initial checkin
mlncn and Pierre-O joined the channel
#
aaronpk
huh I never realized that you could include multiple photos in a foursquare checkin
[kevinmarks] joined the channel
#
[kevinmarks]
Look at tantek and zeldman's points battle - checkins with microformats, multiple photos
mlncn_ and [eddie] joined the channel
#
[eddie]
Zegnat: not too much on my side. I tend towards MIT, but don’t have super strong feelings ?
#
aaronpk
o.O i think it's live
#
aaronpk
guess I need to go check in somewhere to test
tantek and snarfed joined the channel
#
tantek
technology that makes you go somewhere to test it is a good thing
#
tantek
aaronpk, yes, Swarm does multi-photo checkin posts
#
tantek
max 7 photos
#
tantek
what is a multi-photo
#
Loqi
A multi-photo is like a photo post, except just with multiple adjacent photos, either in a series, or tiled / arranged in some layout https://indieweb.org/multi-photo
snarfed joined the channel
#
tantek
hey snarfed - when did the IG markup change
#
tantek
my bookmarklet still worked as of late last night
#
tantek
well, "worked" within current limitations. only for first photo (e.g. if it's a multi-photo post), and only for photos not ideos
#
snarfed
tantek: i don't know
#
snarfed
i believe at or after the multi-photo launch
KartikPrabhu joined the channel
#
snarfed
actually i can figure it out
#
tantek
ok cool. my bookmarklet was "dumb" enough for it to keep working even after the multi-photo launch (surprisingly)
#
snarfed
looks like sometime after 2017-02-27 10am
#
snarfed
that's for news feed at least. i suspect permalinks and profiles are later or not at all
#
tantek
makes sense

#
tantek
meagerly updates a wiki page
#
tantek
waits for OwnYourGram and OwnYourSwarm to show up in the micropub implementation report
#
tantek
wonders if they pass micropub client tests ;)
#
aaronpk
i submitted one manually for ownyourgram already!
#
tantek
heh "the photo" ;)
#
tantek
... "from your checkin"
#
tantek
good thing I documented the 7 photo (multi-photo) support!
#
aaronpk
oops fifxing
#
tantek
this is why I wiki, to help aaronpk make editorial fixes to his blog posts ;)
#
aaronpk
fixed :)
#
aaronpk
it already did support multiple photos
#
tantek
which, your website or OwnYourSwarm?
#
tantek
what is ownyourcheckins
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "ownyourcheckins" yet. Would you like to create it? https://indieweb.org/s/10de
#
tantek
what is ownyourcheckin
#
Loqi
OwnYourCheckin is a service which streams your Foursquare (technically Swarm) checkins to your own site in real-time https://indieweb.org/OwnYourCheckin
#
tantek
wait so what is that then ^^^?!?
#
aaronpk
a fork of ownyourgram by someone else!
#
tantek
OwnYourSwarm vs OwnYourCheckin?
#
tantek
what is OwnYourSwarm?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "OwnYourSwarm" yet. Would you like to create it? https://indieweb.org/s/10df
#
tantek
OwnYourCheckin << OwnYourSwarm
#
Loqi
ok, I added "[[OwnYourSwarm]]" to the "See Also" section of /OwnYourCheckin
#
tantek
interesting, ownyourcheckin also waits 30s before querying in order to get the image!
#
tantek
"the"
#
aaronpk
oh hah, I didn't realize that

#
KevinMarks
Hm, I get a 403 on hosted known
#
KevinMarks
{"error":"forbidden","error_description":"","messages":[]}
#
aaronpk
KevinMarks: oh that might be because ownyourswarm requests "create" scope and Known is expecting "post". Try tweaking the scope in the authorization request when you sign in.
#
KevinMarks
Is that a "json? What?" Error?
#
aaronpk
oh that could be too
#
aaronpk
it's only going to send JSON requests
#
KevinMarks
It didn't give an option to choose post
#
aaronpk
yeah you'll have to change the URL
snarfed joined the channel
#
Loqi
does a happy dance!
#
KevinMarks
Ah, so the embedded browser in woodwind won't work for that
#
aaronpk
woodwind embeds a browser to do the login?!
#
KevinMarks
I'm running woodwind as a pwa homepage app so I don't have an address bar
#
KevinMarks
Trying in chrome and changing scope to post gives the same error so it's known not understanding json most likely
#
aaronpk
ah k. weird that it sends 403

KevinMarks
I should try micropub.rocks on my known setup to verify
#
aaronpk
Oh yeah that'd be useful :-)
#
Loqi
definitely

That was it

#
KevinMarks
403 is odd , 50x would make more sense
#
aaronpk
Or 400
#
KevinMarks
Maybe it's saying ”you don't have permission to post json"
