hmm, wonder if i should move this to indieweb.org wiki https://www.w3.org/wiki/Socialwg/microformats2_network

[jeremycherfas]
ben_thatmustbeme I suspect you would spend all you time maintining it.
#
ben_thatmustbeme
well, ideally the indieweb section people can add their own projects to
#
ben_thatmustbeme
its more about having a single view of what software supports what features

ben_thatmustbeme

I assume one time. I was only using it to import from my FeedWrangler opml
snarfed joined the channel
#
voxpelli
likes the concept of continuous OPML imports/subscriptions, so one can keep a subscribe list in sync between multiple places, would also enable a POSSE-approach to subscription lists, by converting an XFN-list to a OPML-file
#
miklb
yes, that would be nice. I've been thinking I was going to put mine in a git repo, but some kind of automation would be nice
#
[jeremycherfas]
Not quite ready for NextCloud ?

since nextcloud has ability to have plugins, I wonder if one could be written to check for updates to an opml

aaronpk
Do you mean single user as in there is only one person using it (like p3k) or
#
ben_thatmustbeme
yeah, i was stuggling on how to organize it
#
ben_thatmustbeme
maybe native indieweb vs non-native?
#
ben_thatmustbeme
i wanted to make sure we put Known in a category with Mastodon and Diaspora as they are much wider deployed projects

vs InkBlot where its single-user and one deploy, me

Just listened on the train this morning KevinMarks
#
voxpelli
what is friendly?
#
Loqi
IndieWeb friendly refers to online services interoperating well with the indieweb by supporting open indieweb formats, protocols, as well as enabling users to transition to their own indieweb sites https://indieweb.org/friendly
#
voxpelli
ben_thatmustbeme: ^ maybe link to that in regards to eg. Mastodon and such?
#
voxpelli
not sure what software to add to the single user section? should we add WordPress, Jekyll etc there?
snarfed joined the channel
#
voxpelli
ben_thatmustbeme: would you be okay with rephrasing that page to be a list of IndieWeb friendly silos and platforms?
#
ben_thatmustbeme
totally, go for it
#
ben_thatmustbeme
i am up to anyone adding whatever they think makes sense there, i'm just trying to get a list of A) indieweb friendly software / services and what features they support, and B) a list of things that are next to add. I have been going through trying to add MF2 to everything as best I can first, so now Friendica, HubZilla, Mastodon, and GnuSocial (someone else did that one) all publish mf2
#
voxpelli
hmm, noticed the Social WG page now
#
voxpelli
I generally dislike such lists as they are a good fit for software similar to silos, but are not such a good fit for the more modular approach that we have here in the IndieWeb community
#
voxpelli
So the lists in themselves somewhat promote a specific project structure
#
voxpelli
Eg. my https://webmention.herokuapp.com/ can make any page receive WebMentions, but isn't really comparable to Known, Mastodon, Twitter etc in any meaningful way
#
voxpelli
Similarly Jekyll isn't either really comparable to Known, Mastodon, Twitter etc, but when combined with my WebMention endpoint the two gets a comparable set of features
#
voxpelli
What is application?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "application" yet. Would you like to create it? https://indieweb.org/s/10gW
#
[kevinmarks]
do we want a list of things that have refused mf2 PR's ?
#
KartikPrabhu
[kevinmarks]: negative framing ?
#
ben_thatmustbeme
maybe just adding them to the list at the bottom with a 'Refused' and a link instead of just saying No Support
#
ben_thatmustbeme
i don't really think it makes sense to list things that haven't had updates in over 2 years though [kevinmarks], looks more like a dead project really
#
KartikPrabhu
updates don't seem like a good measure
#
KartikPrabhu
I haven't updated anything on my site in 2 years too
#
ben_thatmustbeme
what is app.net?
#
Loqi
App.net (ADN) was a microblogging silo similar to Twitter for posting notes of up to 256 [1] characters in length https://indieweb.org/App.net
#
ben_thatmustbeme
i don't see anything on that page about the shutdown
#
snarfed
you all probably already know about these other existing lists, but just in case:
#
ben_thatmustbeme
that /projects page is insanely long, which is why it needs a table really
KevinMarks joined the channel
#
aaronpk
i think the goal of ben's page is to list software that can be someone's personal website vs the list of all tools like webmention.herokuapp.com and such
#
voxpelli
yeah, but but one of the strengths with the indieweb is that the plurality of us makes it so that most things can be made either indieweb friendly or fully indieweb:ish
#
voxpelli
so it kind of gives the wrong impression when I see p3k, but not WordPress or Jekyll, and then thinks that I have to switch my site to some kind of new tech
#
aaronpk
oh yeah and upcoming isn't a personal site
#
aaronpk
also...add jekyll and wordpress to the table?
#
voxpelli
with eg. OStatus the need to change ones site would in practice be somewhat true and with eg. Diaspora it was completely true, but with us, there's often no need
friedcell joined the channel
#
voxpelli
aaronpk: but Jekyll and WordPress supports nothing and everything – out of the box nothing, but they can all be made to support everything, but in the case of Jekyll, that's not thanks to Jekyll but mostly thanks to tools that can be more or less applied to all sites, static or non-static
#
aaronpk
but yeah, these kinds of lists in general are never complete and always going to be somewhat misleading
initrd_ and davidj_ joined the channel
#
voxpelli
yeah, and it now says so in the summary and refers to the individual spec pages for complete lists of projects for those specs + mentions the problem of fitting some projects into the lists
#
ben_thatmustbeme
it would be good to have them but the "Yes" would need to mention what plugins / addons are needed
mbrock_ joined the channel
#
ben_thatmustbeme
Jekll and WordPress that is
chimo_, dansup_ and Garbee_ joined the channel

voxpelli
yeah, would be good – if nothing else it gives some perspective on things

#
ben_thatmustbeme
I like the alternate specs bit listed
#
ben_thatmustbeme
almost feel like its more of a general "state of the social web" type list that way

ben_thatmustbeme
it gets really messy with friendica as they have tried adding just about everything as i understand
alphi, tbrb and Leeky joined the channel

[kevinmarks]
I tried to explain the spec stuff on TWiG. Not sure i was successful
#
[kevinmarks]
maybe I need a post?
#
ben_thatmustbeme
couldn't hurt i suppose
#
voxpelli
a core part of indieweb also feels like the fact that that we are driven by principles, not tech, so every tech can be labeled as indieweb, just with a different degree of controversy, so listing alternative techs feels good (especially OStatus, which maps so well to IndieWeb)

and voxpelli I agree with you also - that our lists here on indieweb.org should be more inclusive and encouraging of modular approaches. so let's do both

and then you can modify your h-entry structure in one place

tantek, in my world, the post is an h-entry

from all the historical discussion, it's not clear to me that the "WordPress properties" make any sense really

gRegorLove: you're on the right track. i recommend letting bridgy publish handle replies instead of adding leading@-mentions yourself. twitter generally doesn't need them now, but bridgy is conservative and leaves them in your text if they're already there
#
gRegorLove
snarfed: Sounds good. Is Bridgy using a different API version than silo.pub?
#
snarfed
twitter doesn't have different api versions to choose from (afaik)

Huh. Odd

oh wait but yes, you do opt into the new extended tweet handling in the api. so yes bridgy does that and silo.pub probably doesn't

Ok, I'll tell them that when I see them next
#
tantek
snarfed, there's still something buggy in the overall way Bridgy Publish is POSSEing to twitter in that whatever it is doing (Twitter API, options etc.) results in prefixing with redundant @-names that are already in the reply.
#
tantek
POSSEing *replies* to tweet to Twitter in particular
#
tantek
AFAIK neither silo.pub nor e.g. Falcon have this problem (prefixing with redundant @-names that are already in the reply)

Loqi is returning the literal text tweeted, which shows the duplicate prefixing that has occured
#
tantek
that's undesirable beahvior

tantek
because the goal of including @-names deliberately in the message (not at the front) is to have the reply show up *publicly* among all your tweets on your profile

#
tantek
the new reply UI just muddied it
#
snarfed
yes, there have been bugs with this before, which afaik i fixed
#
snarfed
i believe the new problem *is* due to different tools of ours not handling the new extended tweets
#
aaronpk
next they'll make an app to collect all your status changes into a timeline
#
snarfed
in particular, the new extended tweets changed the definition of "literal tweet text"
#
tantek
snarfed this: "but my note is aimed at the general public and not just at the author of the tweet I'm replying to. "
#
snarfed
yes, i understand what you're saying
#
tantek
that's the problem, whatever is causing the prefixing is blocking that
#
tantek
erroneously IMO
#
snarfed
old api clients like loqi, falcon, and silo.pub aren't handling the new twitter API and data format changes, so they're incorrectly rendering tweets as including those prefix @-mentions
#
snarfed
which aren't actually part of the tweeted text, as shown in the screenshot in https://github.com/snarfed/bridgy/issues/742#issuecomment-293411480
#
aaronpk
Loqi is using the extended entities in the API
#
tantek
snarfed, they're not rendering tweets
#
snarfed
aaronpk: it's not extended entities, it's extended_tweet. different. see https://dev.twitter.com/overview/api/upcoming-changes-to-tweets
#
tantek
or rather except for Loqi
#
tantek
the point here is a failure to obey user intention
#
snarfed
tantek: right. loqi is. silo.pub and falcon are using the old publishing API. bridgy is using the new one.
#
snarfed
(er, loqi is rendering tweets)
#
tantek
twitter users already know: "put @-mention at front of reply, only shows to people who follow both, put @-mention in middle of reply, shows to everyone that follows me"
tolerablyjake joined the channel
#
tantek
so they (we) are already authoring replies to tweets accordingly with that intention of audience
#
snarfed
i'll reiterate, bridgy publish is *not* adding explicit leading @-mentions itself any more. ever.
#
tantek
it is indirectly by the API that it is calling
#
tantek
and thus changing the intended audience
#
tantek
that's the failure
#
snarfed
it's not actually changing the intended audience! not in twitter itself, or in other current clients.
#
tantek
yes it is changing in twitter itself because those tweets no longer show up on a person's profile
#
snarfed
look at the screenshot! that was the bug example, and it doesn't have leading @-mentions.
#
snarfed
ok. i think i understand what you're saying.
#
tantek
I saw the screenshot - that's about UI design, not audience visibility
#
snarfed
so this isn't actually a recent change in bridgy publish. when bridgy publish sees a twitter u-in-reply-to, it interprets that as a reply. before, it would add leading @-mentions if they weren't already there, since twitter required them for a reply. now, it doesn't add them explicitly, but does tell twitter to make it a reply.
#
snarfed
ie, when you give bridgy publish a twitter reply, it's *always* limited audience in this way. that's not new.
#
aaronpk
That seems correct
#
snarfed
(tantek sorry it took me a while to understand your real point. it was subtle, and i'm slow :P)
#
tantek
I disagree since there's been a clear user-visible regression
#
tantek
both Falcon and silo.pub set the in-reply-to-tweet-id
#
tantek
and everything works 100% as expected
#
tantek
when the user leads their reply with @-name, the audience is restricted to the intersection of their followers, and the tweet doesn't show up on their profile by default
#
tantek
when the user puts the @-name in the middle of their tweet (not at the front), the audience is all of the user's followers and it shows up on their profile
#
snarfed
sure, i understand. bridgy hasn't allowed that option though. it's always also added leading @-reply to the in-reply-to user if it wasn't already in the text
#
snarfed
that's maybe a key difference between it and falcon/silo.pub
#
gRegorLove
tries to catch up
#
snarfed
there have definitely been bugs, and probably suboptimal UX and docs, but i don't believe [intended] behavior has changed
#
tantek
by changing API calls, Bridgy broke the "...if it wasn't already in the text"
#
tantek
that's the point
#
tantek
nope, there are several people who were surprised by this past few days
#
snarfed
ahhhh i see. very good point. yes that actually sounds true.
#
tantek
the goal is to be able to POSSE a reply that threads correctly AND still goes to ALL your followers and shows up on your profile
#
tantek
the new Twitter API or options or whatever screws that up and thus it's unsuitable for use
#
snarfed
right, understood.
#
snarfed
i honestly suspect this is bigger than bridgy though. if you replied on twitter.com before the new UX and got rid of the leading @-mention, it would change to public audience. now it won't.
#
gRegorLove
Yeah, there's no way to do a .@ reply now, to reply but also be visible on your profile.

#
tantek
snarfed, Twitter's UI regressions don't bother me, they just incentivize more indieweb use
#
gRegorLove
If I understand correctly
#
tantek
gRegorLove: in the Twitter *UI*
#
tantek
but frankly it still works *just fine* via silo.pub (or in Falcon)
#
tantek
snarfed, it's not just me pointing out that Twitter screwed up their UI with this, e.g. Eric Meyer: https://twitter.com/meyerweb/status/852519146319486976 (and others)
#
@meyerweb
@beep @SaraSoueidan What bothers me is sometimes the ”Replying to” line shows up, and sometimes it doesn’t. So I’m always a little unsure if a tweet is a reply.
(twtr.io/1Qafiyn7FGG)
#
gRegorLove
I don't follow most of this, but as long as snarfed does, cool :)
#
tantek
I expect Twitter to eventually notice and fix this
#
tantek
meanwhile, our indieweb tools should keep doing the right thing and continuing to meet user expectations
#
snarfed
tantek: fwiw falcon and silo.pub only do what you want because they're using the old API. if twitter sticks with the changes, they'll eventually turn off the old API.
#
snarfed
we'll see
#
snarfed
tantek: do you have an example of a recent tweet that's a reply, but appears to the public audience?
#
tantek
looks
#
snarfed
thx. would be helpful.
#
tantek
I think aaronpk does with silo.pub because that's what he uses all the time
#
tantek
I tweet less often, and reply even less often
#
snarfed
and thanks for your patience explaining this point!

#
tantek
audience stuff is so subtle, and this is just dealing with public examples!
#
tantek
snarfed, no problem at all, thanks for your patience too!
#
tantek
this is going to get even harder with private / limited audience scope stuff
#
tantek
so we're going to need all the audience related patience we can practice :)
#
snarfed
gRegorLove: i don't think so. that tweet doesn't show up on https://twitter.com/aaronpk
#
tantek
gRegorLove: any example on aaronparecki.com would have to NOT start with "@"
#
snarfed
i honestly wonder if we can find an example. i know the new changes mean you can start a *non*-reply with an @-mention, but i'm not sure they mean you can have a reply show up to the public audience

anyone knows a folk channel?
#
snarfed
i suspect if i used the new api to create the exact same tweet, it wouldn't show up on your profile like that
#
tantek
snarfed, I wonder if we were using different APIs to begin with
#
tantek
mine NEVER made twitter add the @-mention in front
#
tantek
even if my tweet text lacked the necessary @-mention to thread
#
snarfed
before the new api, bridgy added that leading @-mention itself
#
tantek
newapi--
#
Loqi
newapi has -1 karma
#
snarfed
oh wait sorry no, bridgy only added it if it wasn't already in the text
#
snarfed
so in that case, we were doing the same thing, until bridgy switched to the new api
#
tantek
right, Falcon would just fail to thread because the Twitter API didn't thread if the necessary @-name was missing
#
tantek
I decided that was better than altering the expectation of what text would get tweeted / truncated
#
tantek
but could see it work either way
