Decided to just switch themes. Wasn’t fair to try an #indieweb WordPress experiment without doing so.: https://jgregorymcverry.com/decided-to-just-switch-themes-wasnt-fair-to-try-an-indieweb-wordpress-experiment-without-doing-so/

↩️ Lots of angles to consider. Just the code, the org, the network of sites/users, the UX etc. I would focus on replicating Twitter experience by connecting all the instances "owners" by way of indieweb or similar. Simplify architecture, support podcasting, bundle paywall concepts.

Zegnat: similar in concept to this: http://txti.es
#
dgold
txti also gives the content-as-json via minimal api
#
Zegnat
That’s cool. I am wondering if something like that might solve my blogging woes
#
Zegnat
Is that ... HTML as JSON?! Oh my, that’s a new one
#
dgold
Yeah, I've been onto the guy about that html as JSON

!tell GWG: Your podcast pages could use some cover art! I wonder if you could use something like schmarty where you have the IWC logo and a colored banner on the bottom that says “An IndieWeb Podcast”. Does your Podcast/Audio post type allow for an image to be included?
#
Loqi
Ok, I'll tell them that when I see them next
#
skippy
aaronpk: does Quill do reposts at all? or just replies?
#
aaronpk
it does
#
Loqi
Quill
#
skippy
oh, nice! thanks!
#
skippy
ah, but it doesn't offer repost syndication?
#
[eddie]
Has anyone noticed that on GitHub they have Facepiles literally kind of stack on top of each other like cards? When you hover over them with your mouse, they spread out so you can investigate each one individually. Kind of a cool form of a face pile
#
cweiske
example?
#
[eddie]
On a commit page
#
cweiske
I wonder how this looks with 10 authors
#
[eddie]
That is a good question
#
sknebel
I wonder why do this when there's hundreds of pixels of whitespace on the same line
#
[eddie]
haha I’m wondering if they are trying to keep attention away from the photos
#
[eddie]
like they don’t want that to be the primary focus?
#
aaronpk
i thought they do that to show that the authors are all contributing to the same individual thing (the commit)
#
aaronpk
I believe that happens when someone else merges a commit
#
[eddie]
Ohhhh so there’s only probably every two, the author and the merger
#
cweiske
does someone have a repository with an octopus merge?
#
[eddie]
I’m not even sure what an octopus merge is?
#
[eddie]
Well that’s probably #dev anyway lol
#
[eddie]
so ignore that question

straw poll: are you an iOS or an Android user? Just curious what folks are using here.
#
snarfed
anecdotally in the past i think we've seen mostly ios, a little android (GWG, me, swentel)

Android
#
skippy
thanks!
#

i'm currently on Android, but have been seriously contemplating going to iOS.
[markmhendrickso joined the channel
#
[markmhendrickso
iOS
#
Zegnat
It isn’t really that I chose Android. It is more that I chose a < 200 EUR phone. Ha.
#
[jgmac1106]
@skippy we can save you from bad choices
#
skippy
[jgmac1106]: there are no bad choice. either give in to the invasive data collection of Google, or accept the "we know best" attitude of iOS and their unchangeable default apps.
#
aaronpk
I definitely fall on the "we know best" side :)
#
[jgmac1106]
Apple only became privacy company when iAD failed
#
skippy
i'm increasingly annoyed at Android putting app developers (ie: advertisers) desires over my desires as a phone owner. I'm coming to better appreciate the isolation of iOS apps from one another.
#
[jgmac1106]
I actually really miss the days when Android sucked. Flashing nightly roms trying to crack bootloader was fun

#
skippy
flashing CyanogenMod, before it went commercial, was fun.
#
[jgmac1106]
I actually think Android better bet for responsive web apps than iOS
#
[jgmac1106]
Yeah mine was a Barnes and Noble Nook with honeycomb
#
[jgmac1106]
But I am on Verizon family plan and they got ruthless with bootloader and no nexua
#
[jgmac1106]
Nexus 5x still my fav phone of all time. All that for $250
#
[jgmac1106]
Though had an old Sony Ericson I left out in rain, ran over with lawn mower and it still worked. Might be close second
#
Zegnat
I had a Sony Ericsson W890i in high school. I think it is still my all time favourite phone. Solid but thin, unobtrusive in my pocket, tactile buttons to press.

marinin
So, I've started working on my new blog engine that would support indieweb out of the box. The biggest hurdle was to come up with codename for the project. In the end I've decided to go simple and called it 'strunk'.
#
marinin
Besides that, I discovered a problem, that feels like I should document it somewhere. I've got Marinin.xyz as my primary url on the web. All was good, until I discovered that all .xyz TLD is blocked at my work (and possibly on untold numbers of other providers), due to 'spam'.
#
marinin
*are blocked
swentel joined the channel
#
marinin
Rather than trying to fight bureaucracy, I decided to move to .com: what should I consider to do that flawlessly? Currently I'm thinking of doing 301 redirect.
#
marinin
redirects* on all pages, that is. Not sure, how IndieAuth would handle that, though.
#
sknebel
it'll log you in as the new domain if you try to log in with the old

marinin
oh, ok.

#
pstuifzand
what is ekster?
#
Zegnat
You can use 302 temporary redirects and IndieAuth should stick to the original domain while still following the redirect for discovering your endpoints, marinin
freescholar joined the channel
#
Zegnat
But I guess it depends what you want. Do you want to keep using .xyz as your main identity? If you are considering setting up 301s, that doesn’t sound like it.
#
swentel
pstuifzand, love the name :)

pstuifzand
"microsub-server" wasn't very catchy
#
swentel
haha, no it isn't
#
pstuifzand
what is ekster
#
Loqi
Ekster is a Microsub server written in Go https://indieweb.org/Ekster
#
pstuifzand
that's better
#
[jgmac1106]
someone some day make a list of what is capitalized where and why,
#
sknebel
pstuifzand: the <dfn> tags tell Loqi what sentence to use as a summary
#
pstuifzand
ok, didn't know that
#
sknebel
(or rather, they tell a mediawiki plugin what to put a "p-summary" on, which Loqi then finds)
#
sknebel
one reason why most of us use Loqi to create new pages ;)
#
pstuifzand
I should do that in the future

pstuifzand: does ekster expect to be the sole service at the domain on which it is running? or can/should I map specific endpoints to talk to it? (I'm using docker-compose, and will be proxying into it from my host)
