Anyone here?

hi Daiweico
#
Daiweico
Hi there! I am looking for a direction. I would love to run my own MicroPub server. Where could I go to get one?
#
GWG
I'm here
#
KartikPrabhu
Daiweico: depends on what code you are running on your site
#
Daiweico
I run either Jekyll or Hugo.
#
Daiweico
I am using both at the moment.
#
KartikPrabhu
Daiweico: maybe check out this page https://indieweb.org/Micropub/Servers
#
KartikPrabhu
there seem to be both Jekyll and Hugo on it
#
Daiweico
KartikPrabhu, I went there.
#
Daiweico
It is not the easiest place to find what I am after.
#
KartikPrabhu
linked from the table of contents
#
KartikPrabhu
unless you are not looking for Micropub servers (?)
#
Daiweico
Any MicroPub I have come across, still requires Indieweb tokens. I want to avoid that as well.
#
KartikPrabhu
the authorisation in micropub is done using indieauth. If you want to avoid that you might have to build your own
#
Daiweico
So, I also need an authorization server?
#
Daiweico
Is Indieauth open sourced?
#
GWG
There is a public server if you want
#
KartikPrabhu
Daiweico: indieauth the protocol is open
#
Daiweico
GWG, is it simple an OpenID endpoint, or is it something else?
#
KartikPrabhu
aaronpk^^
#
GWG
Daiweico: It is similar. Indieauth is an identity layer on top of the OAuth specification
#
Daiweico
Kartik, I am not a programmer. I will not be able to do much with an open protocol. :-)
#
KartikPrabhu
Daiweico: hopefully aaronpk can help out. and don't worry I am not a programmer either
#
aaronpk
in order to use micropub apps, you'll need to point to an indieauth server. you don't have to run your own, you can use some publicly hosted ones instead
#
aaronpk
if you try to sign in to https://quill.p3k.io it will walk you through it
#
Loqi
Quill
#
Daiweico
aaronpk, where can I find the code, and instructions to run my own?
#
aaronpk
there are several options to choose from
#
Daiweico
listens… :-)
#
aaronpk
hm why do we not have an easy list of authorization server software you can run :)
#
KartikPrabhu
aaronpk: no idea which is why I asked you to intevene :P
#
GWG
I need to finish writing my implementation
#
Daiweico
https://indieauth.com/setup# has a Github link that doesn't go there.
#
Loqi
IndieAuth.com
#
KartikPrabhu
actually all those links are broken
#
Daiweico
Actually, none of the links on the right top menu column works.
#
aaronpk
hehe that's just a demo of my site, not supposed to be functioning links
#
KartikPrabhu
oh! that is not a menu! it is an example
#
aaronpk
guess that should be a screenshot instead
#
KartikPrabhu
that is no menu!
#
Daiweico
Ah!
#
Loqi
[aaronpk] IndieAuth.com: IndieAuth: Sign in with your domain name
#
Daiweico
Loqi, I want to run my own.
#
KartikPrabhu
Daiweico: Loqi is a bot who is giving descriptions of the links
#
aaronpk
yes that one or https://github.com/inklings-io/selfauth which is probably easier to run
#
Loqi
[Inklings-io] selfauth: self-hosted auth_endpoint using simple login mechanism
#
Daiweico
Kartik, oh, duh! Thanks!
#
Daiweico
aaronpk, thanks, appreciate it.
#
aaronpk
that said, I do not recommend starting this process by running your own authorization endpoint. it's much easier to run your own micropub endpoint and point to indieauth.com in the mean time
#
aaronpk
like I said earlier, if you start trying to log in to quill.p3k.io it will walk you through the steaps

aaronpk through the steps towards running my own IndieAuth, or using my domain to login? If it is the second, I know how to, it isn't what I am after right now. I used to run my own OpenID, so, as microblogging grows, I want to run the new "standard." :-)
#
aaronpk
it will walk you through the steps of getting micropub running on your website
#
aaronpk
you can swap out the indieauth.com hosted services with your own later after you get the micropub endpoint running
#
Daiweico
Right, using indieauth.com tokens, correct?
#
aaronpk
it makes things easier to start that way
#
Daiweico
Oh, I can make it work straight with my own micropub endpoint, but I have bookmarked the site. Thanks much!
tantek joined the channel
#
Daiweico
It seems it isn't too different from OpenID, using meta tags on own website.
#
aaronpk
in that sense, yes. the protocol itself is much simpler.
#
Daiweico
Excellent.
#
Daiweico
Empty.
#
KartikPrabhu
verified ^
#
aaronpk
that's odd, that was supposed to redirect

@sdepolo
@HMAuerbach Oh, I didn't realize how into crochet you are. Do you know @HeidiMercury's friend PK? She's a knitting genius. Funny thing, since her GoDaddy site is down, I can't find how to connect you two on Instagram, and she's not on Twitter. (the case for #indieweb)

@Zegnat true! BTW when is the next virtual HWC?
#
[markmhendrickso
And separately, [eddie] it's exciting to see you working on an iOS micropub client – I will definitely use it once ready for testing

"TwitterLockOut"??

Good morning IndieWeb
#
Zegnat
!tell [markmhendrickson] I was unable to attend vHWC this month, but if nothing weird happens virtual HWC should be back next month (or if someone else wants to host it, of course!)
#
Loqi
Ok, I'll tell them that when I see them next
