Have you considered Nextcloud Tasks?
#
[cleverdevil]
What is Nextcloud Tasks?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "Nextcloud Tasks" yet. Would you like to create it?
#
[cleverdevil]
Nextcloud Tasks is an app for the [[Nextcloud]] platform that provides task tracking and management, and syncs with popular desktop and mobile task management applications like [[2Do]]. – https://github.com/nextcloud/tasks
#
[cleverdevil]
What is 2Do?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "2Do" yet. Would you like to create it?
#
KevinMarks
How about todo.txt
#
KartikPrabhu
what is Nextcloud?
#
Loqi
Nextcloud is an open source software project for self-hosted personal web services including a file manager (an indie version of Dropbox), music, calendar (CalDAV), contacts (CardDAV), and more https://indieweb.org/Nextcloud
#
KartikPrabhu
do we need a separate page for every Nextcloud app?
#
[cleverdevil]
2Do is a task management app for [[iOS]], [[macOS]], and [[Android]].
#
Loqi
ok, I added "https://www.2doapp.com" to the "See Also" section of /2Do
#
KartikPrabhu
maybe one could add the apps to https://indieweb.org/Nextcloud#Applications instead of their own pages which have minimal descriptions
#
[cleverdevil]
That's a good idea.
#
plindner
Maybe I should just go back to org-mode
#
snarfed
org-mode++
#
Loqi
org-mode has 1 karma
#
KartikPrabhu
what's that?
#
plindner
emacs task manager http://orgmode.org
#
plindner
looks like there are some mobile apps now.. hmmm

aaronpk what would an "IndieWeb" replacement entail? Are there currently any proposed standards around that type of stuff? I know some apps are getting into integrating taskpaper's plain text format for interoperability
#
tantek_
eddie, work it backwards. note that many /note posts are things people *have done*
#
tantek_
a to do post in that regard is kind of like a draft but with side-effect pre-requisites
#
[cleverdevil]
Oh great, another idea that I now inevitably have to implement for my site...
#
[cleverdevil]
THANKS TANTEK
#
tantek_
what is 43things
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "43things" yet. Would you like to create it?
wolftune joined the channel
#
[cleverdevil]
Almost like "promises" in many programming languages ?
#
tantek_
43Things is a to-do hosting [[silo]] with social media features such as friending, ability to cheer ([[like]]) or comment on to-do [[posts]].
#
Loqi
ok, I added "https://43things.com/" to the "See Also" section of /43Things
#
tantek_
43Things << example user-profile found on homepage: https://43things.com/u/parunt1987
#
Loqi
ok, I added "example user-profile found on homepage: https://43things.com/u/parunt1987" to the "See Also" section of /43Things
#
tantek_
cleverdevil, take a look at 43Things, it's got some decent UX around "to-do" posts in a social media context, worthy of trying out, screenshotting etc. as research towards developing your own indie to-do posts
#
[eddie]
@tantek_ interesting
#
[cleverdevil]
I'll check it out, for sure.
#
tantek_
eddie, definitely! yet another opportunity to own your data, or perhaps share your data, since most to-do solutions are private / local by default
#
tantek_
e.g. to-do.txt
#
[eddie]
That is interesting, as they would be notes, you could automatically do all the normal stuff like tag people, comment or reacji
#
[eddie]
Ohhh!!!! Wait, it overlaps with my media posts: "interested, inprogress, finished"
[kevinmarks] joined the channel
#
[kevinmarks]
hm, so would tagging people like you do in trello webmention them instead of emailing?
#
[eddie]
Yeah, I think you would webmention a tagged person, that would allow their site to do whatever kind of processing that want
#
[eddie]
Mind. Blown.
#
[eddie]
I think the key thing about To Do apps though is the nice, focused interface. Micropub would allow you to save/edit posts. There isn't really any defined way to pull data from a site though, is there? I think everything I've seen is just the Micropub query for things like venues and syndicat endpoints. Microsub doesn't necessarily seem right either, because that is about how your site communicates with a reader app about what people you want to subs
#
[kevinmarks]
isn't it just an h-feed?
#
[eddie]
I guess so is there a standard for a private hfeed?
#
[eddie]
I'm thinking of how you would say have a private h-feed that contains both public and private todo posts, that you would only access after authenticating. My site doesn't really have authentication yet. Has anyone ever explored private authenticated h-feeds? I'm guessing not
#
[kevinmarks]
put it behind auth?
#
tantek_
eddie, I'm not sure about private authenticated h-feeds, but a few folks here have explored showing more on their home page when you're signed in via IndieAuth
#
tantek_
e.g. contact information
#
tantek_
but there's no reason why you couldn't also show more posts in your home page composite stream
#
tantek_
I kind of want to do that with checkins
#
tantek_
eddie, the other thing similar to to-do posts, are events, since they're both about something you expect or want to do in the future
#
[eddie]
Yeah, I've been doing some private media posts so on my local Jekyll instance on my computer I've been running Jekyll in such a way that it will build and show posts marked with visibility: private when I'm on my local Jekyll instance but my website builds it without private posts. Once I move away from Jekyll in the not too distant future, I'll be able to handle authentication and could start experimenting with showing my private posts on my authen
#
[eddie]
maybe experiment with private h-feeds
#
tantek_
that's a clever approach!
#
[eddie]
Thanks. Yeah, by default Jekyll has something similar for drafts. Basically you build Jekyll with the --drafts flag and it will show draft posts. I took the same concept and just applied it to private marked posts.
#
[kevinmarks]
hugo has that too
#
[eddie]
I've enjoyed Jekyll but I do feel like I'm beginning to reach the end of it's ease of use ? haha, I think after I finish tackling Indigenous, next up is moving from Jekyll to Angular Universal (server-side rendering of the Angular SPA code).

What is Single Page Application?

It looks like we don't have a page for "Single Page Application" yet. Would you like to create it?

gRegorlove, with your analysis of Converspace repo history, looks like you've confirmed this is the first example of webmention comment federation: http://indieweb.org/irc/2017-04-19/line/1492671575461

cleverdevil, did you write a Known plugin for "on this day"? That anyone could install?
miklb and strk joined the channel
#
strk
any reason why indieauth does not support openid ?
#
strk
I mean, when it asks me for a website, and I give it, it will NOT look for openid rel links at all
#
strk
so either I provide my GPG/PGP key, or an email or an external service
#
cweiske
strk, or use the indieaut-openid proxy
#
strk
which means the only non-external way to authenticate myself is less easy/comfortable than my own openid
#
strk
cweiske: how's that done ? (I remember your nick btw, are you from libravatar ?: )
#
cweiske
yes I am :)
#
cweiske
<link rel="authorization_endpoint" href="http://indieauth.id.cweiske.de/" />
#
cweiske
put that on your homepage
#
cweiske
it proxies indieauth requests to openid requests
#
cweiske
I made it so I can continue to use my openid server for indieauth
#
KartikPrabhu
what is openid?
#
Loqi
OpenID is a method of using an HTTP URL as an identity for signing into websites https://indieweb.org/OpenID
#
KartikPrabhu
what is indieauth?
#
Loqi
IndieAuth is a way to use your own domain name to sign in to websites — it's like OpenID, but works with services you likely already use, and is much easier to setup https://indieweb.org/IndieAuth
#
strk
cweiske: nope, that's not what I'm after
#
strk
it's not using indieauth as my openid provider, I already have that
#
strk
I have my openid provider, just want to be able to use that with sites asking me for a "indieweb" auth (or what's it called)
#
cweiske
it means you can use your website at indieauth.com and log in using your openid provider
#
cweiske
what you want
#
cweiske
try it
#
strk
Loqi: to me, given I did already setup OpenID, it is *harder* to setup
#
cweiske
loqi is a bot
#
strk
or... I did set it up, but it will require me to use my email or gpg-sign a piece of text
#
strk
which are both more expensive at use time than my OpenID setup
#
cweiske
http://indieauth.id.cweiske.de/ "This software make it possible to use your OpenID to login to IndieAuth-enabled websites."
#
strk
anyway, other readers can see what I'm talking about :)
#
KartikPrabhu
strk: what is your own URL?
#
strk
does that imply delegating recognition of myself via your service cweiske ?
#
strk
what if you wanted to impersonate me ?
#
strk
would it be straightforward for you ?
#
cweiske
strk, yes I could impersonate you
#
cweiske
which is why you should simply try if it works for you with my setup
#
cweiske
and if it's what you want, host it yourself
#
strk
right, making it again more complex to setup than openid
#
strk
wouldn't it be just much simpler to support openid right away ?
adactio joined the channel

KartikPrabhu
strk: if indieauth does not support something you'd like file a bug/ feature request
#
cweiske
strk, I already tried to fight that
#
cweiske
but people here are not so fond of openid
#
strk
but they are nice to twitter and github ?
#
strk
wow, that's "indie" !
#
KartikPrabhu
strk: yes, nice snark! thanks
#
strk
guess I could install a fork of that thing under /openid/indieauth on my site
#
strk
cweiske: did you file that bug/feature_request already ?
#
cweiske
strk, indieauth.com once supported openid
#
strk
oh !
#
cweiske
something is broken
#
cweiske
strk, another thing you need to understand is that indieauth.com is only a stopgap
#
cweiske
there are enough applications that do not rely on indieauth.com for login
#
cweiske
but implement the indieauth protocol directly
#
cweiske
so having indieauth.com support openid would not help with these
#
strk
how complex is the indieauth protocol ?
#
cweiske
pretty simply
#
cweiske
simple
#
cweiske
which is why my proxy is only 60 LOC or so
#
strk
cweiske: may I suggest to add a link to http://indieauth.id.cweiske.de/ in the README of that project of yours ?
#
strk
I got lost from the repo :)
#
strk
oh, and I assume you're keeping an eye on gitea.io (just in case you missed it)
#
strk
I've added support for OpenID-2.0 consumer there :)
#
cweiske
I'm waiting for openid support
#
cweiske
last time I looked it was missing
#
strk
it's there, check out try.gitea.io
#
strk
and please help me convincing notabug.org people to switch from Gogs to Gitea with OpenID support ! (you can find them in #freepost)
#
cweiske
that's good news, openid support in gitea
#
strk
does your proxy *need* to be in the root dir or will /openid/indieauth work too ?
#
cweiske
no idea
#
cweiske
let me check
jihaisse joined the channel
#
cweiske
I guess you can symlink /openid/indieauth to the www directory in the git checkout
#
cweiske
that should work
#
strk
I'm actually adding your repo as a submodule of my website git repo
#
strk
(or that's the plan)
#
cweiske
I separated public code (www) from the rest (data)
#
strk
but maybe it takes some local config ? [ I'm hoping for things to be just magic ;)
#
cweiske
needs no config
#
cweiske
just stores some tokens in a sqlite file
#
cweiske
which is stored in the data directory
#
strk
ok so it would be good to make data/ directory not readable by all
#
strk
maybe I'll use an alias then
#
cweiske
that'd be better
#
strk
had you considered proposing your proxy for inclusion in debian packages ?
#
strk
that'd be even more simple :
#
strk
simpleid has a package, for example :)
#
strk
bah anyway its still lots of state
#
strk
I don't like it (the sqlite db) when I already have OpenID state
#
strk
how do implementors decide which things they support and which not ?
#
strk
ie: when indieauth.com tells me it found no supported services (but finds a supported service when I add a github account)
#
strk
is that part of the protocol ?
#
cweiske
as I said, it's a stopgap
#
cweiske
indieauth.com is an indieauth proxy itself
#
cweiske
proxies indieauth requests to other providers
#
cweiske
just as my indieauth proxy proxies to openid
#
strk
what are indieauth consumers required to support ?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "indieauth consumers required to support " yet. Would you like to create it?
#
cweiske
what is indieauth protocol?
#
Loqi
IndieAuth for login is a user flow and protocol for web applications to implement user login via an authorization server https://indieweb.org/indieauth_protocol
#
strk
reads
#
cweiske
this is the correct one
#
KartikPrabhu
indieauth.com support common logins thing like Twitter and Github so that people can use the things they already might use
#
cweiske
but indieauth_protocol gives a good overview
#
KartikPrabhu
as cweiske pointed out one can use the indieauth protocol to setup ones own
#
strk
so the protocol is really the same as openid
#
cweiske
less complex
#
cweiske
but also does not deliver any profile data as openid does
#
cweiske
(name, email etc)
#
@kevinmarks
@hmans Right, there are the stalwarts of http://indieweb.org
(twtr.io/1QsaKR_4SNw)
#
strk
ah, got it, so the "me" links are just for indiauth.com while the protocol really wants "authorization_endpoint"
#
strk
the protocol page does not tell how the service is supposed to "verify code"
#
KevinMarks
Is this the relmeauth vs indieauth distinction ?
#
strk
oh, and it's a wiki, is there any "official" (and versioned) document ?
#
cweiske
the protocol page is more a general overview

RelMeAuth is a proposed open standard for using rel-me links to profiles on OAuth supporting services to authenticate via either those profiles or your own site. RelMeAuth is the technology behind web-sign-in. Editor Tantek Çelik (http://tan...
#
strk
for sure OpenID has its advantages
#
strk
( specification )
#
strk
gets lost in too many "standards"
#
cweiske
no standards yet
#
strk
openid is also using a namespace for the rel, which is helpful in these scenario
#
strk
ie: rel="openid2.provider"
#
strk
compare with: rel="authorization_endpoint"
#
cweiske
aaronpk, this is a good point
#
strk
also versioned, as for openid 1 you had rel="openid.server"
#
strk
unfortunately OpenID-Connect took the "Webfinger" route for discovery, as far as I can tell
#
strk
so it became less easy to setup
#
cweiske
I did not look at openid connect
#
strk
discovery is published as a separate document: https://openid.net/specs/openid-connect-discovery-1_0.html
#
strk
and there's yet another extension for self-registration of providers (which would otherwise need to be known by consumers [web services])
#
strk
so, complexity++
#
strk
and OpenID-Connect is what *deprecates* OpenID-2.0
#
cweiske
sure, but I fail to see the point in openid-connect
#
cweiske
or I did not look hard enough :)
#
cweiske
apart from "hey, lets throw away all the openid2 code and make something new!"
#
strk
it does indeed look like they tried to break the toy, maybe pushed by corps
#
strk
anyway, "connect" is implemented on top of OAuth2, so maybe there was a convenience about that
#
strk
(using other more used standards more)

OAuth2 / Webfinger / Dunno what else

aaronpk
Good morning
#
aaronpk
catching up on the IndieAuth discussion, looks like it's sorted
#
Loqi
good morning
#
aaronpk
OpenID 1 is effectively dead, since all the people behind it moved to OpenID Connect, and there are almost no OpenID providers still online anymore
#
aaronpk
sadly, OpenID Connect doesn't really serve the same needs as OpenID 1 did, because it is focused on large companies rather than individuals' domains
#
skippy
I have some implementation questions about h-entry on personal domains. Looking at https://indiewebify.me/validate-h-entry/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fskippy.net%2Fgoogle%2F - I am the only author on this site, and it seems silly to explicitly state "published by skippy" on every post. Is there an IndieWeb recommendation for this kind of thing?
#
skippy
i get that syndicated copies of this content might benefit from such explicit authorship.
#
skippy
similarly, is there h-entry support for publications dates wihtout the full time and timezone format? I don't track the times at which I post content, so the datetime="YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS" format is cumbersome at best for me.
#
ben_thatmustbeme
skippy: you don't have to include the exact time if you don't want to, you can just use datetime="YYYY-MM-DD"
#
skippy
i see. thanks ben_thatmustbeme. The docs I've read haven't made that clear.
#
ben_thatmustbeme
datetime attribute is a part of the html spec i believe
Pierre-O joined the channel
#
skippy
thanks
#
ben_thatmustbeme
as for putting your info on every post, it doesn't need to be visible, you could have an invisible h-card
#
ben_thatmustbeme
what is authorship
#
Loqi
authorship is a claim about who the author(s) of a post are https://indieweb.org/authorship
#
ben_thatmustbeme
so long as people can find who the author is
#
strk
aaronpk: you're getting versioning wrong
#
strk
aaronpk: there was OpenID-1 (openid.server), OpenID-2 (openid2.provider), OpenID-Connect
#
strk
OpenID-2 does have implementations (Friendica, GNUSocial, SimpleID, ...)
#
strk
+Gitea (recently)
#
aaronpk
IndieAuth.com used to consume OpenID 1, but I never added support for OpenID 2. You could open an issue on it to add support for OpenID 2, although I am unlikely to work on adding it myself.
#
strk
OpenID-1 is provided by some old wordpress.com blogs ( https://github.com/yohcop/openid-go/issues/43 )
#
strk
and I read from IndieAuth.com
#
aaronpk
I removed OpenID support a while ago because it started getting super unreliable, showing very confusing error messages
#
strk
Gitea does not allow logging in via OpenID-1.0
#
strk
I've found confusing errors and partial implementations in OpenID-2.0 libraries too (the one used by GNUSocial and at least another project I used today)
#
strk
but as there's a complete specification I'm trying to fix those free implementations
#
strk
simpleid is a php openid-2.0 provider (not sure if opendi1 too) which has a pluggable backend module
#
strk
anyway, where should I file the ticket ?
#
aaronpk
in the indieweb context, IndieAuth is used more for authorization, and the protocol looks more like OAuth 2.0
#
aaronpk
IndieAuth.com is a URL based authentication service that provides an OAuth2-like API.
#
aaronpk
But if your site is it's own IndieAuth provider, then you'll never see IndieAuth.com when you log in to things that speak it natively
#
aaronpk
... emphasizing again my regret at having called that service IndieAuth.com to begin with

Blogger still lets you login to comment with openid
#

filed 2 tickets
#
strk
GNUSocial also supports (and provides) OpenID-2.0

I dunno if it accepts OpenID-1.x, hadn't tried that

aaronpk
also anyone feel free to update that wiki page with 1 vs 2 information

specify versions there please

strk
Openstreetmap (consumes 2.0)

strk
^ that's openstreetmap.org

aaronpk
strk: you're welcome to edit the page :-)
#
strk
livejournal also provides 2.0
#
strk
friendica consumes 2.0
#
strk
those are not "sites" but "softwares"
#
aaronpk
Sounds like a good distinction to make on the page
#
aaronpk
you can make a new header for Consuming Software and clean that up

sorry I have problems logging in :)

#
strk
too much effort (gpg-signing the text) - do you know of a firefox extension to do that ?
#
strk
or confirming the code sent by mail
#
strk
or setting up my openid proxy (not done yet)
#
aaronpk
I use the OS X GPG app with a keyboard shortcut to sign the text
#
strk
keyboard shortcut from within the browser ?
#
aaronpk
No, it's system wide
#
aaronpk
in the "services" menu
#
strk
indeed doesn't need to be browser specific, could be "sign clipboard text"
#
aaronpk
it's "sign selected text" and it replaces the selected text with a signed version
#
strk
bah, still problematic, not ready
#
strk
unless you know the equivalent tool for a Mate desktop
#
strk
and a Gnome one
#
strk
as the wiki is on indieauth.com, right ?
#
aaronpk
Correct, the wiki uses IndieAuth.com to handle authentication
#
aaronpk
cause i didn't want to implement all that logic as a mediawiki plugin :-)
#
strk
wouldn't "all that logic" basically be support for IndieAuth protocol ?
#
strk
or is the "me" links support completely outside of the protocol and specific for indieauth.com ?
friedcell joined the channel
#
ben_thatmustbeme
indieauth.com gives you the option to use your own indieauth (spec) service if you have one set up
#
ben_thatmustbeme
so while the wiki points to indieauth.com, it does allow you to use your own service
#
strk
yes, I see that
#
skippy
indiewebify.me states "either link to your homepage (which should have your h-card on)from anywhere on the page with rel=author". i have a <link rel="author" ...> in the <head> of the page; but that seems not to be picked up by the h-entry validator. Is the bug on my side or the validator's side?
#
strk
ben_thatmustbeme: but it *adds* support for more auth methods
#
strk
(but not for OpenID)
#
ben_thatmustbeme
you can always make your own indieauth provider that does support OpenID
#
ben_thatmustbeme
skippy: that sounds like a bug in the validator, should file a bug
#
skippy
thanks
#
strk
ben_thatmustbeme: yes, I also understood this, but you can see it's more setup once you already have an openid provider
#
strk
and, so far, it would be just to edit that wiki
KevinMarks joined the channel
#
ben_thatmustbeme
thats like saying any site X doesn't support OpenID, they have a different login mechanism. It leaves a few choices, file a bug with an existing provider (indieauth.com) and hope someone else adds support, add support, and make a PR for an existing provider, create a new provider, or login via a different method
#
strk
confirmed, this is the situation
#
ben_thatmustbeme
simplest method for you to login wotul be to add a rel="me" href="https://github.com/strk" to strk.kbt.io
#
ben_thatmustbeme
and then you can login for now
#
ben_thatmustbeme
wow, s/wotul/would/
#
strk
yes, but the only reason I'm looking at indieweb is for the "indie" part, so won't do that :)
#
strk
I'd have an indie way, but requires too many gestures
#
ben_thatmustbeme
your login is still your own URL, all that matters at that point is plumbing. nothing about indieweb says you can't utilize external services
#
ben_thatmustbeme
just so long as you have other ways to do it as well, or rather, you don't lose anything if it goes away
#
ben_thatmustbeme
if github.com goes away tomorrow, you set up the same thing via twitter
#
strk
but any github employee could impersonate me today
mlncn joined the channel
#
strk
(I know how unlikely this is, just pushing to the extreme...)
#
aaronpk
And if that happens then you remove the rel-me URL
#
aaronpk
and you haven't lost the identity, you just change the authentication mechanism you use next time
#
ben_thatmustbeme
technically whoever you registered your domain name could always impersonate you
#
ben_thatmustbeme
or your hosting provider, assuming you don't host at home
#
ben_thatmustbeme
there has to be some infrastructure you depend on
#
strk
true, registrar employees could do that too
#
strk
only way out of this would be for me to send public key to final service
hs0ucy joined the channel
#
aaronpk
Yep. This is the Indie *Web* so we work within the constraints we are given at that later http://indieweb.org/DNS
#
[kevinmarks]
No, that just means anyone with your private key can impersonate you, as revocation is to hard, or relies on dns
#
ben_thatmustbeme
you can't really be on the web and not have to trust some external authority

strk, would is be enough to be able to use an ENV variable to define the sqlite file path?
#
cweiske
s/is/it/
#
strk
cweiske: probably, yes - then maybe you want to create the directory if non existing
#
strk
so the data/ can be dropped
#
strk
but really to make it a git clone away it should also not be under www/
#
strk
so not sure how you want to deal with that
#
strk
*and* default to /tmp/url-encoded-uri/ so that multiple installs on the same server could cohexist
#
cweiske
using www/ is a deliberate decision
#
strk
yes, I understand that decision
#
cweiske
I don't want to have README.rst and things publicly available

it's just me being unable to decide on a proper install path :P

I don't understand why you can't do:
