What is FAANG?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "FAANG" yet. Would you like to create it?_ (Or just say "FAANG is ____", a sentence describing the term)
#
gRegorLove
what is finsta?
#
Loqi
finsta is a portmanteau of fake and Instagram, a typically private pseudonym account that only a few close friends follow, and used to post more informally and frequently, without any of the typical Instagram posting conventions; as few IndieWeb are private, this may be worth exploring https://indieweb.org/finsta
#

what is insta?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "insta" yet. Would you like to create it? (Or just say "insta is ____", a sentence describing the term)
#
chrisaldrich
I'd seen acronyms for Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Google, and other similar conglomerates of /silos before, but saw a reference to FAANG as a shorthand for Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, and Google as a group.

If you use Netlify to deploy your static site, and use webmention.io, add Zapier to the mix, and then webmention.io -> webhook -> Zapier -> Send Email (optional) & POST Netlify build URL -> Your static site updates!
#
kaushalmodi
So now the delay between receiving a new webmention and seeing it updated on your *static* site is just about a minute for the whole trip.. Hey Hugo user here :D
#
tantek
not bad!
#
@kaushalmodi
@buhakmeh @biilmann @GoHugoIO @zapier @Netlify The meta data like author, post title, post content, etc. is auto-parsed as I am using Microformats2 HTML classes to wrap my post content..

No title because winer doesn't do microformats
#
cweiske
the page has a <title>
#
Zegnat
XRay doesn’t do <title>. Nor OpenGraph, which that page also has
#
cweiske
so it has custom handling for a) twitter, b) github and c) mf2

XRay is an open source API that returns structured data for a URL by parsing microformats and following other indieweb algorithms, and is part of the p3k suite of applications https://indieweb.org/XRay

Zegnat: did you make a pull request from that?
#
Zegnat
petermolnar, what? YouTube support for XRay? It isn’t a PR, because it is unpolished, but it is publicly accessible in my fork.

jeremycherfas, anyone can update the channel topic, I believe!

jeremycherfas
Too much responsibility! I never did understand how /next works in any case. I was just wondering whether there is a vHWC tomorrow
#
Zegnat
Not yet planned, I keep dragging my feet and not sending out a planning to people! I would really like to start going regular with vHWC again when I know a timeslot that fits people
#
jeremycherfas
No, that's a good reason to drag feet. It would be good to have a time that suits as many people as possible.
#
Zegnat
But if you have a time you are available at, do invite some people in! The Mumble server is open!

@punksandwitch Check out software alternatives like #activitypub protocol powered #mastodon. Check http://indieweb.org . It's more strategic to use a POSSE strategy, to make Twitter into a side system instead of the foundation of comms efforts

A multi-photo is like a photo post, except just with multiple adjacent photos, either in a series, or tiled / arranged in some layout https://indieweb.org/multiphoto

I added support for it to my PhotoIndex plugin and my new "overview" page as well.

No lie, the IndieWeb is _such_ a great idea. There just isn't enough tooling to make it easy nor is there an "agreed upon" practice to make it something more feasible. ALLL of the things for a blog post.
(twtr.io/1c6tkqFrkdE)
#
tantek
hmm not sure about the latter assertion
#
tantek
with all the reader stuff working now, it feels like we might at or near sufficient "agreed upon" practices to make it all feasible
#
skippy
there's not quite enough off-the-shelf consumable solutions yet. still too much "box of parts you need to assemble yourself" for casual adoption.
#
tantek
skippy, indeed
#
tantek
Known was getting there ("off-the-shelf consumable solution") but kinda stalled when it went towards an edu focus instead

hoping to see that revitalized soon

closest we have for "casual adoption" now is micro.blog

I've got a use case for a private feed btw.

I like Swarm and I like OwnYourSwarm, but I'm hesitant to post a lot because I know they will show up as public posts on my site.
#
sebsel
Swarm itself isn't public either
#
sebsel
So since aaronpk already has access to Swarm, it wouldn't hurt to turn them into a private feed and test private feeds that way.
#
sebsel
Then he can mute me afterwards if he don't want to see them :P
#
sebsel
to Swarm > my Swarm / he follows me
#
aaronpk
would that be something where you'd create the private feed on your site from the ownyourswarm posts?
#
sebsel
Yes, so all OwnYourSwarm checkins would be private.
#
sebsel
Or maybe even all my checkins?
#
sebsel
But that part is up for me to decide, right? I control what makes a post private or public.
