# 07:34 sebsel [chrisaldrich] I am on Strava indeed! And raucao made a way to do PESOS last IWS.
# 07:35 sebsel I believe Strava has those images too if you share your run on Twitter. I like it as a POSSE option, but on my own site, I rather have the data searchable :)
# 07:40 sebsel The difference here is that these are maps, I see now, and not photo's.
# 07:57 raretrack What is this running thing of which you speak? <<< cyclist on Strava ;)
# 08:02 raretrack Woops, that'll teach me not to start a sentence with "what is" in here!

# 09:16 [renem] Maybe have a look at Runalyze, which is a solution that you can host yourself and is mainly for Runners, not so great photos but maps currently embedded as iFrame. But OpenSource on Github.
# 09:16 [renem] I use it for my runs with the hosted solution, but that isn't the only way.

# 16:30 ada[m] Hi everyone. I'm trying to add mf markup to https://view.matrix.org, but I'm not personally the most familiar with the syntax in the world. 2 questions at the moment:
# 16:30 ada[m] 1. Is there a way I should markup the landing page at view.matrix.org to make it clear that each link to a room contains an h-feed?
# 16:31 ada[m] 2. The page for each room is in chronological order rather than reverse-chronological order. How do I show that?
# 16:33 Zegnat Hmm, I am not sure anyone is doing feeds of feeds.

# 17:02 tantek BTW what do people think of the new Swarm UI?
# 17:02 tantek (pretty major app update from 2017-08-10 I think, just installed it myself last night)
# 17:03 sebsel You now can't buy stickers anymore, making the coins useless (you have a total and a weekly score, that's it)
# 17:04 tantek I saw some stickers got moved from being multipliers to just "Bonus"
# 17:04 sebsel And they removed one of my frequently used stickers (public transport earthingies)
drewinthehead joined the channel
# 17:05 tantek odd that the "Collectible" stickers have the 2x / 3x multipliers, while the "Bonus" stickers do not
# 17:05 sebsel I am not sure if I understand "bonus" here :)
# 17:06 tantek hey ada[m] - were you able to figure out how to markup matrix-static?
# 17:06 tantek I think a simple h-feed with an h-entry for each row would be a good start
# 17:07 tantek also for each room, chronological vs reverse-chronological doesn't matter. h-feed works either way
# 17:10 sebsel tantek Ah, I found it! You mean: the sticker still exists but has no multiplier. The other section of stickers is called "Bonus". But they don't give you bonus points, hence my confusion :)
# 17:10 tantek sebsel, yeah exactly. hence why I said "odd that..." :)
# 17:11 sebsel I guess I just have to visit another category of venues more often then :)
# 17:11 sebsel (I am going more to parks since I use Swarm.)
# 17:12 tantek One of the reasons I like Swarm (and it's UI) is that it's very encouraging of doing things in the real world, and not just spending endless time online, reading streams, replying etc.

# 17:47 [shurcool] Hi there. I've got a quick question that's _probably_ common... it's about indieauth and rel="me" links. So, I _used to_ have those links on the index page, but I've ended up moving them to an `/about` page. That ends up breaking my ability to sign in via indieauth. What are some typical ways to resolve that/work around that?
eli_oat joined the channel
# 17:50 bear you need something on your domain's home page that is a rel=me - even if it's in the header or a hidden element
# 17:50 bear but that's only for indieauth - you can still have all of your profile info in /about
# 17:50 [shurcool] I understand the technical requirement. I'm curious from a design standpoint, how do people usually solve this?
# 17:51 tantek pretty sure that's an FAQ - bear did you check the wiki page?
# 17:54 bear it shows that you can do it with a simple <link /> in the header
# 17:54 [shurcool] > Note: If you don't want visible links on your home page, you can instead use <link> tags in your html header.
# 17:55 [shurcool] ah, see it now
# 17:55 bear remember that the rel=me for indieauth to work is orhagonal to your profile page
# 17:55 [shurcool] okay, so hidden links are acceptable
# 17:55 [shurcool] It felt nice when the profile page (back when it was at root) and indieauth coincided.
# 17:55 [shurcool] but I guess it's not a hard requirement
# 17:56 bear nope, there are as many ways to do it as their are indieweb folks I think :)
# 17:56 [shurcool] I'm still considering adding a footer that would have visible links. so it's either that, or going with invisible links.
# 17:56 [shurcool] has anyone come up with a different solution other than footer or hidden links?
# 17:56 bear yea, some folks like to add an h-card element on every page in some location
# 17:57 bear well, the semantics of h-card and rel-me offer variety but they are also structured -- so not a ton of variation
# 17:57 [shurcool] all right. thanks a lot ?
# 17:58 bear but again, the rel=me links just are pointers for indieauth to know which pages represent you for authentication
# 17:58 bear that's a lot different than how/why you would craft an h-card
# 17:58 [shurcool] I see, makes sense
# 17:58 bear it's just common enough for them to be blended
# 17:59 [shurcool] I guess I started out by conflating the two, so it felt a bit unnatural to separate them. but nothing wrong with that
# 18:00 bear it's helpful to step back and follow the process *why* indieauth consumes rel=me links
# 18:01 bear it uses them as a list of items in *your* domain that are sources of links back to your domain
# 18:01 bear and that they are sources that are not your domain but that you would need control over to change
# 18:03 Zegnat [shurcool], I just don’t use RelMeAuth, that’s my solution.
# 18:03 bear i'm going afk for a bit - but please do post any followup questions, I'll be back later or someone else will eventually help - August week-end days are often slow in the channel ;)
# 18:03 Loqi [Inklings-io] selfauth: self-hosted auth_endpoint using simple login mechanism
# 18:04 bear Zegnat - yea, I wasn't even going to start down the path of rel="authorization_endpoint"
# 18:04 bear but i'll pass the indieweb auth batton to you for a bit :)
# 18:05 Zegnat RelMeAuth via indieauth.com isn’t much else than outsourcing your auth endpoint though. So linking your own endpoint is a solution if you do not want to link social media platforms on your homepage
# 18:05 tantek Zegnat and that's definitely #indiweb-dev talk :)
# 18:06 Zegnat [shurcool] asked here what people are doing to get around having rel=me links on their homepages, I use selfauth. Doesn’t sound like dev to me?
# 18:08 tantek yes, setting up selfauth is definitely dev - not something a non-dev user would be able to do
amz3 joined the channel
# 18:12 Zegnat is confused about when something becomes dev then
eli_oat joined the channel
# 18:13 Zegnat Anything that involves uploading a file to a webserver = dev?
# 18:15 [shurcool] That's an interesting alternative, thanks for sharing Zegnat
# 18:21 [shurcool] If I understand correctly, I could implement that rel="authorization_endpoint" on my home page and that'd be sufficient to login to the wiki at https://indieweb.org, is that right?
# 18:22 Zegnat Any website that supports IndieAuth, or uses indieauth.com, to let people login will let you login with that. Including - of course - the wiki :D
# 18:22 [shurcool] and I wouldn't depend on indieauth.com for doing... auth stuff. I'm being vague because I don't know the exact terms without looking more into it now, and I'm just doing cursory discovery/research right now
# 18:23 sknebel some sites (like the wiki) still let indieauth.com handle all of that for them, but on your side nothing depends on it
# 18:23 Zegnat The wiki will still go to indieauth.com, because it has outsourced the checks. But something like https://telegraph.p3k.io/ (a webmention sender) will communicate straight with your own site
Pierre-O joined the channel
# 18:24 tantek Zegnat, "involves uploading a file to a webserver = dev" typically yes
# 18:24 [shurcool] right. just to confirm, I'm not looking to let people sign in to my site via indieauth, just to be able to use my site to login to other sites that support indieauth
# 18:25 Zegnat Yes, this is just you using your site for login
# 18:25 tantek [shurcool]: that's correct, and again, that distinction is why a lot of this conversation is more developer-like
# 18:25 tantek Zegnat how do you upload a file to webserver?

# 23:10 DanC_ I'm thinking about taking photos with my android device and syncing them but without sharing with google. Any experience here?

KartikPrabhu joined the channel
# 23:21 sknebel DanC_: there is also an app called FolderSync, but I haven't tried it myself

[kevinmarks] joined the channel
# 23:39 sknebel DanC_: at least my old-fashioned device has a folder with images that all apps with filesystem access can access?
# 23:40 DanC_ maybe my concern is: I'm happy for google to back up most of my photos. I just want to keep some of them for myself
mblaney joined the channel
# 23:41 sknebel hm, not sure what a good workflow for that would look like
# 23:42 DanC_ well, currently I have a couple ways of getting images on my phone: (a) the camera app, and (b) a thing that scans documents to google drive
# 23:42 DanC_ I'm interested in something kinda like (b)
# 23:43 sknebel maybe you can install a second camera app and configure that with a different folder?
# 23:45 DanC_ yeah... so... I'm interested in a solution that doesn't involve sharing with Dropbox or google...
# 23:46 DanC_ though... even stuff like https://oasis.sandstorm.io/ is ultimately backed by google cloud compute (or AWS? I think it's google). But at least in that case, google isn't using it to sell ads (I think/hope)
# 23:47 DanC_ I guess Dropbox isn't motivated by ads/attention; they have plenty of customers spending $$ for storage
# 23:48 sknebel you possibly could install that in parallel, set it to a different folder and then have owncloud/nextcloud/... sync that folder
# 23:48 DanC_ gives it a try...
