anyone tried to use twitter topics to thread POSSE notes?
hs0ucy joined the channel
#
gRegorLove
What's twitter topics, miklb?
#
miklb
I assume it's a Twitter thing, Tweetbot added it a while back. meant as a way to thread updates. Maybe same as a moment?
#
miklb
oh, it is a Tweetbot feature, but can be saved as a collection.
snarfed and wolftune joined the channel
#
miklb
so I guess the question would be is there an indieweb equivalent to a collection. I guess could just use a custom tag for the notes so could present them in order on some fashion.
#
aaronpk
what is a collection?
#
Loqi
A collection is a type of post that explicitly lists and/or embeds multiple other posts chosen by the author https://indieweb.org/collection
#
aaronpk
oops gotta update my example there
[mko] and wolftune joined the channel
#
miklb
aaronpk are you grouping by a tag, or is it something you curate?

this post by pwcc seems like a great overview of what all a WP indieweb site would involve https://peterwilson.cc/one-click-indieweb-for-wordpress/
#
Loqi
One click indieweb for WordPress
#
[jhsheridan]
useful, even if slightly intimidating
#
miklb
[jhsheridan] not quote "one click" as the plugins are still spread out, but the IndieWeb core plugin guides you into installing the plugins (and there is effort to consolidate the plugins incrementally). A lot of those features are there though.
#
miklb
I've committed myself to the theme we discussed, my goal is to be able to launch it for IndieWeb Summit (albeit remotely).
#
[jhsheridan]
that's great
#
[jhsheridan]
Are you planning to merge it with underscores or something similar?
#
miklb
I wasn't. I appreciate what _s is, and who's behind it, but as a "not a designer", I intend to use a Sass framework and would be too much to merge them. I will use it for inspiration in places though, as I did for my site.
#
[jhsheridan]
I lean programmer more than designer as well. Have been working on a gulp-powered static site gen that compiles sass and minifies things, etc, etc
#
[jhsheridan]
let me know if you need an extra hand
#
miklb
in a past life I did a lot of work with the Genesis framework, could see doing something with that in the future.
#
[jhsheridan]
I've never dealt with it
#
miklb
[jhsheridan] it will be open from the beginning, so will definitely take any and all help/suggestions/etc
#
[jhsheridan]
awesome... I'll keep an eye out
#
miklb
[jhsheridan] I just started embracing using Gulp w/WP to compile & minify. Was previously just using Sass at the CLI. I'm a full Gulp convert now though.
#
[jhsheridan]
There is something innately wrong about having to have node to write some CSS, but, as far as I can tell, it's somehow the best solution.
#
miklb
lol, exactly
#
[jhsheridan]
I like that it can be used for a lot more too.
#
miklb
this post from Ben Balter last week is resonating with me regarding the theme, so I'm spending a little time to think it through. http://ben.balter.com/2017/04/14/your-projects-readme-is-your-project-constitution/

Yes, but you seem to be putting a lot of emphasis on it
#
GWG
What concerns you about it?
#
miklb
sorry, guess I think out loud a lot.
#
aaronpk
miklb: my collections are manual. Otherwise it's just a tag feed
#
miklb
I remember now you discussing "pinned posts" for your tags page.
#
aaronpk
Yeah! That's been super useful!
#
aaronpk
Totally different thing
#
miklb
GWG I guess I don't want it to be half-baked, so putting a lot of thought in it and making sure it's something I can/want to commit to.
#
miklb
so far the answers are all yes.

#

I'm not familiar. ACL?
#
GWG
What is audience?
#
Loqi
audience is an experimental property of a post that indicates the intended recipients (readers) of the post https://indieweb.org/audience
#
miklb

what, if any, spam mitigation options exist with webmentions? it seems trivial to build spammy web pages that contain links to my posts as well as whatever spam rubbish they want linked; and then webmention my links for links back.
#
KartikPrabhu
skippy: there have been no reported cases of webmention spam yet, but
#
KartikPrabhu
what is vouch
#
Loqi
The Vouch protocol is an anti-spam extension to Webmention. Webmention with Vouch depends on understanding Webmention https://indieweb.org/Vouch
#
KartikPrabhu
skippy: try that ^
#
KartikPrabhu
also one should add rel-nofollow to links contributed by external content
jihaisse joined the channel
#
skippy
interesting. thanks.
#
skippy
makes it kind of hard for newer users to get vouch support, but I understand the dilemna.
#
KartikPrabhu
skippy: you are of course free to add in any other anti-spam measures on your own site
loicm_ joined the channel
#
skippy
sure, I understand. I'm not trying to be critical. still learning.
#
KartikPrabhu
yes, didn't take it as being critical
#
gRegorLove
I thought rel nofollow wasn't recommended anymore?
#
gRegorLove
what is nofollow?
#
Loqi
nofollow is a rel value meant to stop search engines imputing endorsement from a link https://indieweb.org/nofollow
#
gRegorLove
Salt: There's been multiple reports of indiewebify.me failing to send wm, yes. webmention.rocks probably works better.
#
KartikPrabhu

I might be mis-remembering. It's been a while. Some convo on page 3-4 here: https://indiechat.search.cweiske.de/?q=nofollow&page=3
#

Think it still makes sense on links in comments, and for use with vouch
#
KartikPrabhu
yeah same here
#
KartikPrabhu
shuldn't put nofollow on all external links for sure specially ones that are actually in your post

Getting a warning from my WithKnown site. `Mixed Content: The page at 'https://stream.jeremycherfas.net/2017/first-gt-of-the-season-and-no-lemon-in-the' was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure image 'http://stream.jeremycherfas.net/file/a870b8126c82690546ca1d45aa8844da'. This content should also be served over HTTPS.` I think this may be a problem with ownyourgram, or if it isn’t, I’m not sure how to fix it.

[jeremycherfas]
@sknebel So you are saying that this is not a problem from ownyourgram, but because withknown gets some assets from other sites that are not using https?
#
sknebel
[jeremycherfas]: no, since they are all from your local site. with the main image via ownyourgram it would have been possible that OYG sets an http url for some reason, but if I see it right stuff like the comment avatars are cached by known itself
#
sknebel
so this seems like a known bug/misconfiguration to me
#
sknebel
(you didn't add HTTPS just recently, right?)
#
[jeremycherfas]
I added https weeks ago.
#
[jeremycherfas]
I suppose I should raise an issue with known.

webmention.io says "If you configure a web hook for a site, webmention.io will send a post request every time a webmention is received and verified. You will not receive webhooks for webmentions that are invalid." but I don't see how / where to register a web hook.
#

skippy: give me a minute and i can help. more like 30 minutes
#

no rush. i'm not in a position to implement right now. still gathering data to make an imeplemtnation plan.
#
skippy
if there's docs / a gist / howto i can read. thanks!
#
martymcguire[m]
skippy: once you log in to webmention.io there is a dashboard page: https://webmention.io/dashboard
#
martymcguire[m]
it includes a "Web Hook" section where you can enter a URL for a web hook and an optional secret key for wm.io to pass along for verification.
#
martymcguire[m]
if i understand correctly, each domain that you've logged into wm.io with will have a webhook option box on that page.
#
skippy
i see no such options. does it not show those options until I actually add the <link rel=...> bits to my site(s)?
#
aaronpk
You'll need to receive a webmention first
#
skippy
ah. okay

I've tried both. Neither gets much in the way of a response.
#
[cleverdevil]
Pull requests also stay open for very long periods.
#
aaronpk
still has some open pull requests
#
[cleverdevil]
It's a time of transition for the project I think, but it's sort of sad to see :/
#
[cleverdevil]
It might be valuable for a few of us to volunteer to police pull requests (review, merge, etc.)
#
snarfed
mapkyca has been doing that for a while
#
aaronpk
i was never clear on his role. is he "official"? does he have to review everything? should others be stepping up to help review?

Known is a great platform, and I think it *can* have a bright future.
#
[cleverdevil]
But, it could definitely use a shot in the arm from a leadership perspective.
#
[cleverdevil]
Its pretty easy to work with, and has a lot of potential.
#
snarfed
erin jo is definitely still working on the business and product full time
#
snarfed
but not the code or repo much
#
[cleverdevil]
Yeah, Ben mentioned that.
#
[cleverdevil]
Which is awesome! I'm glad that there's a business still operating.
#
snarfed
maybe. sometimes when a project also has to be a Product or Business, or when people think that, it sometimes seems like an albatross around its neck
#
snarfed
projects definitely need sustainable funding. there are just lots of different shapes and sizes between full-fledged startup and all-volunteer.
#
skippy
what is the "correct" (or preferred?) way to handle webmentions to the root of a site? Should I not put <link rel...> tags on my home page,but only on content pages?
nitot joined the channel
#
snarfed
skippy: totally up to you!

martymcguire[m]
skippy: many folks accept mentions of their homepage for various reasons

I wonder if Known has a slightly different deal, though. Matter are VCs, and thus almost certainly have growth targets for continued funding. I wouldn't be that surprised if erin jo is doing a lot of biz dev/sales work.

I'm sure that's what she's doing. Busy building sites, working on selling and marketing, etc.
