cool the /projects page has links to a few languages at the top of the page, so might be a good place to start.

Apropos of nothing, the concept of "building blocks", as used by IndieWeb, is strong and sticky once you understand it. I've started to apply it to arguments for rolling different open technologies into other projects I'm involved with.
#
jmac
e.g. I'm asking one organization to consider seeing IRC as a building block for building a custom chat solution on, instead of seeing it as "IRC", the set of monolithic nerd-havens of mixed reputation like Freenode. (sorry nerds, i luv u)
#
petermolnar
where did the discussions on GDPR vs embeds lead to? Out of curiosity I was checking if some of the (wordpress) sites I manage put down any cookie when someone is a mere visitor - and the only thing that does it youtube, via embeds.
#
Zegnat
I think sgreger had an interesting piece about embeds too
#
sknebel
I believe he implmented a clickthrough thing, like e.g, Medium does for sites that don't respect Do not Track
#
sknebel
been meaning to have something like that too
#
sknebel
(show screenshot and a notice in the iframe, click loads the actual embed)
#
cweiske
petermolnar, there is some no-cookies-youtube embed domain
eli_oat joined the channel
#
petermolnar
yep, that's what I found
#
petermolnar
I just need to overwrite the built-in youtube shortcode in wp with a filter
#
Zegnat
Yeah, I am pretty sure he blogged about that too, sknebel. Where he basically demoed how he implemented it. But can’t seem to find it :(
#
sknebel
.... which then uses Localstorage :P
#
sknebel
although I believe it still stores less data, and afaik Google says they won't do tracking if you use it
#
Zegnat
If you really want to protect from stuff like that: don’t embed. Link off-site.
#
sknebel
ah, found the article I had in mind: at least 2016 it did still store a device id in localstorage and still did load dubleclick network stuff, but Google said they don't store data as long as the user isn't playing the video
#
petermolnar
Zegnat: not my choice, these are friends/family sites
#
petermolnar
but most of them are not technical enough to know if they need a GDPR notification or not
friedcell joined the channel
#
[jgmac1106]
I thought personal sites were exempted. If someone embeds a YouTube video isn't it up to YouTube to be compliant? Doubt anyone going to try and cash in on Grandma's blog being out of compliance with GDPR
#
petermolnar
That makes sense.
#
sknebel
yeah, for my personal use that's really only something I look at because principles ;)

[aaronpk] when you get a chance, I have a little service to show you for testing 🙂
#
[cleverdevil]
Make a JSON micropub POST to https://futurepub.cleverdevil.io/micropub with a `mp-destination` property with your target endpoint, and a `published` property in the future
#
[cleverdevil]
Use the same Authentication header you would otherwise send to your endpoint.

what is Futurepub

It looks like we don't have a page for "Futurepub" yet. Would you like to create it? (Or just say "Futurepub is ____", a sentence describing the term)

Futurepub is a Micropub proxy that can post to another Micropub server on your behalf sometime in the future. https://futurepub.cleverdevil.io/
[cleverdevil] joined the channel
#
[cleverdevil]
Futurepub is a service by {{cleverdevil}} which allows users to schedule micropub posts for a future date and time.
#
[cleverdevil]
Your dfn is better.
#
tantek_
what is scheduled
#
Loqi
scheduling in the context of the indieweb, refers to the feature of setting a specific time for a post to be published in the future https://indieweb.org/scheduled
#
tantek_
Futurepub << scheduling
#
Loqi
ok, I added "[[scheduling]]" to a brand new "See Also" section of /Futurepub https://indieweb.org/wiki/index.php?diff=48034&oldid=48033
#
tantek_
scheduling << Futurepub
#
Zegnat
Hmm. That would be a good case to implement expiring tokens. Or even something like scheduled tokens. Hmmmmm
#
tantek_
what is an expiring token?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "expiring token" yet. Would you like to create it? (Or just say "expiring token is ____", a sentence describing the term)
#
tantek_
actually, let's take "token" to #indieweb-dev
#
[cleverdevil]
Updated the https://futurepub.cleverdevil.io content with information and examples.

GWG++ for adding the ability for sites (and particularly online newspapers/magazines) to facepile "Read" posts

#
tantek_
wow what site is that? chrisaldrich one of yours or one you're helping with? and how did you convince them to install the (latest?) indieweb plugins to get a "/read" facepile?
#
chrisaldrich
Not my site, but that of a local paper whose editor I met at a local WordPress meetup. We've been talking about IndieWeb for a while.
[schmarty] joined the channel
#
chrisaldrich
I went over to help them set up some of the basics and the most recent version of Semantic Linkbacks does /read facepiles now, so... voila!
#
chrisaldrich
It's nice to have an example of an online newspaper doing something like this from a professional perspective.
#
tantek_
wait you set them up a while ago, and all they've been doing is automatically updating the plugin?
#
chrisaldrich
I started earlier this month with backfeed from Facebook and went back today to add backfeed from Twitter as well as to update specifically so they could show reads as well.

This type of read-post functionality is somewhat similar to siloed versions like Goodreads and Reading.am, but I think is significantly different in form that it may be the first of its type functionally on the web.
#
chrisaldrich
i.e. there is no silo version of this type....
#
chrisaldrich
or am I just pulling at threads?
#

facebook has it afaik

this looks pretty nice!
#

i expect goodreads too

(ah nm, see you mentioned them)
#
KartikPrabhu
what is read?
#
Loqi
To read or reading is the act of viewing and interpreting posts or other documents; on the IndieWeb, a read post expresses that something has been read, like a book or section thereof https://indieweb.org/read

In relation to /read posts which I sometimes view as a subcategory of bookmark, what would it potentially break if I also marked them up as bookmarks? Thus using read-of and u-bookmark-of simultaneously?
#
chrisaldrich
I think I did something akin to this last week for a /watch post so that it would be picked up by IndieNews which only triggers off of bookmark posts, but I wanted to display it explicitly on my site as a watch.
#
aaronpk
sounds like a question of fallback behavior
#
chrisaldrich
Given that /read /watch posts aren't evenly distributed and most aren't supported, falling back on bookmark for display isn't a horrible thing, but then it needs that mark up as well.
#
aaronpk
see if /post_type_discovery has any clues yet, that's where I would expect to find an answer
jgmac1106 joined the channel
#
chrisaldrich
are there other crossed types that might also have this type of behaviour?
#
aaronpk
yes, videos for example
#
aaronpk
videos can use the "photo" property as a fallback when the thing consuming the post doesn't understand videos
#
aaronpk
the post type discovery page algorithm describes the priority of these properties to provide good fallback behavior
#
chrisaldrich
on my site I've got a linkblog category that includes likes, reads, favorites, watches, and bookmarks... but I've never considered physically adding explicit bookmark-of as well as a fallback.
