A website we made at Cub Scouts tonight as the Wolf Pack (1st graders 5-7) designed their community service project: https://donotlitter.glitch.me/ they wrote all the copy, did the illustration and after playing tag tag revolution learned header and paragraph tags: https://donotlitter.glitch.me/

going to try to make it to vHWC - I won't be at the SF HWC b/c of a conflict with https://www.meetup.com/dotbayarea/events/255202528/ (a good friend runs this meetup and it's the first one)

If you missed it: today it was confirmed that Facebook massively & knowingly inflated its video-view statistics, which had the DIRECT consequence of 90% of media orgs firing writers in favor of expensive video producers, who also got fired when it turned out video was worthless https://twitter.com/jason_kint/status/1052400225602756608

@aaronpk Sorry, can't make it to IWC. Just reading https://indieweb.org/WebID where @tantek asked "What additional use-cases" :: LogIn to my SOLID server w. IndieAuth // or can't SOLID just use IndieAuth ?
#
aaronpk
sl007: sorry to miss you this year! solid should definitely use IndieAuth, since it's basically a profile of OAuth 2.0 to work under the same constraints solid has.
#
aaronpk
sl007: this post explains why it'd be a good fit https://aaronparecki.com/2018/07/07/7/oauth-for-the-open-web
#
sl007
Cool. I am trying to https://solid.inrupt.com/docs/app-on-your-lunch-break - I guess it will be a long lunch break ;) btw: will IWC be streamed ?
#
aaronpk
yep! we'll be streaming the main room, and will be running Hangouts for remote participation in at least one room

[solid] webid-oidc-spec: Specs for WebID-OIDC decentralized authentication protocol (based on OAuth2/OpenID Connect)
#
aaronpk
looks like how you'd go about turning OpenID Connect into something useful for solid, but IMO is still a lot more cumbersome that is actually necessary
#
aaronpk
in other words, if you thought the indieauth spec was difficult to implement, that is about 10x harder

[Rose]
IWC as an IWC Nürnberg? Nice!
#
[Rose]
And regarding HWC: Is there a European one happening online tonight?
#
sl007
well, the indieauth spec was KISS when I wrote the node implementation. "Builds on decades of real-world authentication industry experience" - sounds like materials used in space flights
#
sl007
- however also written a JWT library I'd use and if you look at https://github.com/solid/webid-oidc-spec#brief-workflow-summary isn't 3) - 5) just IndieAuth

Hi indieweb folks!
#
[renem]
I maybe missed an information about Brid.gy and Flickr publishing. Something maybe has changed over the last few months. I get an error when trying to publish to Flickr (via Brid.gy web) "Flickr doesn't support type(s) h-card, or no content was found." And I've no idea why this worked months ago and now throws this error. [snarfed] maybe?

Anyone else run into problems using IFTTT to post to Twitter from Mastodon RSS feeds? The @ in the URL keeps disappearing and I’m trying to figure out if I’m doing something wrong or if I just need to escalate this bug with one of them.
#
petermolnar
I did run into problems with IFTTT parsing RSS, but I don't do Mastodon
#
petermolnar
I can easily imagine a buggy regex email match that drops the initial @
#
cweiske
question is how it looks, and how it should be looking
[Rose] joined the channel
#
[Rose]
I use Zapier to post to Mastodon, but that's from a RSS feed (which also posts to Twitter) and uses webhooks
#
petermolnar
wonders if he should spin up a mastodon/fediverse instance just to syndicate there, or would fed.brid.gy be enough
#
[Rose]
I want to do the fed.brid.gy stuff, but I haven't got there yet.
#
[Rose]
There's a few steps in the process before I get there
#
petermolnar
is anyone doing a working fed.brid.gy syndication ?
#
swentel
replies, like and repost work fine
#
petermolnar
I'm more interested in the mastodon instance wants to follow my site thing
#
swentel
that's the last part I'm figuring out now :)
#
swentel
I know how to send an AP request though to mastodon
#
aaronpk
I have a working implementation of a similar service, but mine doesn't do replies at all 😂
#
swentel
but snarfed would like to see other way first to get posts visible there
#
swentel
since it's kind of weird to hardcode a certain instance to send your main toots to
#
[Rose]
I have been wondering if I would be better off just syndicating the posts to Mastodon myself (as I currently do), but I do lose replies and likes
[jgmac1106] joined the channel
#
[jgmac1106]
Why not a syndicated h-card phone book? People could use that for their nickname cache for a local copy. Even if it's just a GitHub repo... though an API to sync be neat
#
swentel
wel fed.bridgy can send back replies and likes (but it's currently broken heh)
#
[jgmac1106]
Also activity on the idno/Known repo bumping ActivityPub integration
#
[jgmac1106]
Hey I admin indieweb.me if anyone wants to hack around at all. Not sure if it helps. Guy running mastohost said he would help with getting access to anything we need but isn't a developer
#
petermolnar
wow. I loaded indieweb.me, and currenctly my browser is set to 'hu' (Hungarian) locale; the mastodon translation is... interesting.
#
petermolnar
silly word choices, I get, but typos...?
#
swentel
you'd hope translations are at least peer reviewed .. :)

how well does Sunlit play with micropub? anyone using it without micro.blog or wordpress?

[Rose]
It uses MicroPub, it works fine with my endpoint 🙂
#
cweiske
what is sunlit

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

renem: sounds like maybe your site's markup changed? or bridgy's mf2 parsing. that error means it couldn't find your post or photo in the parsed mf2. you can see what bridgy saw in the log for that publish attempt, linked on your bridgy user page

where does one file bugs or ask for help with Sunlit? just help@micro.blog? that seems... insufficient.

You can also go to the Micro.blog Slack and there’s a Photos channel

@eddie had this dream in the car (yeah should be driving) of my aperture/indigenous podcast feed, when it hit the end of the audioclip I would get a prompt, This podcast is publsihed, Would you like to publish a “listen post”
gRegorLove, snarfed, [tantek], sebsel and jgmac1106_ joined the channel
#
[eddie]
I do really want some type of more automated listen post tracking. I…will not admit to tracking listened podcasts in the car. But I won’t say it doesn’t happen either.
#
[jgmac1106]
Yeah be awesome to plugin into the mic, though easier on Android than iOS
[Rose] joined the channel
#
[jgmac1106]
Maybe a listen as an icon choice in Indigenous for rss feeds.
#
[eddie]
Both Indigenous clients know if there is an audio file attached, so it could be if an audio file exists, then it shows a listen button. My problem is I use a general purpose Podcast player, and I don’t necessarily feel like we need to reinvent podcast players
#
[eddie]
🤔 I have more thoughts, but it’s gonna get #dev real quick
#
[eddie]
So I’ll be over there
#
[jgmac1106]
Yeah just thinking on Marco Arment recent post that we need to stop using commercial players since they don't support Podcaster. His advice was open players or rss
tantek__ and KevinMarks joined the channel
#
skippy
micro.blog and sunlit aren't working against my personal micropub endpoint. Indigenous only supports notes, not articles (and doesnt rotate images). Any other ios apps?
#
[eddie]
Indigenous does support articles (but not with embedded images yet, if that's what you were wanting)
#
[eddie]
and yeah, I need to figure out image rotation too
#
swentel
heh, it took me a while to get that right too lol
#
jacky
[eddie]: you ever consider extracting some of the libraries around IndieWeb stuff in Indigenous?
#
[eddie]
I definitely want to do that
#
skippy
quill doesnt seem to like my mobile photos. Wondering if it's accepting the HEIF and passing that through raw, and my endpoint is discarding it because i dont support it server side
#
[eddie]
jacky: I've kept the files themselves separate so it'll make the libraries easier to make.
#
skippy
[eddie]: how does one do articles? i dont see a way to do a title to make an article
#
jacky
[eddie]: nice!
#
jacky
I'm toying with the idea of making another client app myself tbh
#
[eddie]
skippy: Same as Micro.blog, if you post more than 280 characters
#
jacky
but wanted to give back and not reinvent the wheel (too much)
#
skippy
[eddie]: ah. i see. that's nice, and surprisingly not intuitive to me.
#
[eddie]
jacky: awesome! Yeah, one reason I haven't worked on the libraries aspect too much is not knowing anyone that wants to use them yet
#
[eddie]
skippy: Yeah, I've been feeling a little "meh" about it recently, so not sure it's gonna stick that way
#
skippy
i think i would like articles with images; but it's not presing.
#
skippy
I'm about to go on vacation to Lodon, and would liek to share some photos, maybe.
#
[eddie]
Ohhh, very cool!
#
[eddie]
Yeah, that's definitely something I would like to do. The challenging part is the interface where the photos are intermingled with the text
#
[eddie]
I have to figure out how apps like Ulysses such embed those
#
skippy
my phone takes HEIF images, but my endpoint only accepts GIF, PNG and JPEG; so I need photo conversion to happen client side before i upload.
#
[eddie]
Ahh yeah, that's understandable
#
[eddie]
jacky: I'll push up the priority of the libraries knowing that you're interested in using them
#
tantek__
what is HEIF
#
Loqi
tantek__: [jgmac1106] left you a message 23 hours, 31 minutes ago: as far as I can tell, and the first reference I can find to #toptentuesday is this IGN article on best games and metal bands: https://www.ign.com/articles/2007/10/02/top-ten-tuesday-games-or-metal-bands it then took off among librarian blogs after the launch of Twitter and is now a hashtag used primarily from librarians and #bookphiles
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "HEIF" yet. Would you like to create it? (Or just say "HEIF is ____", a sentence describing the term)
#
jacky
definitely! if you have tickets on it too, I'll see if I can contribute. I'm better with Kotlin than with Java
#
[eddie]
Ohhhh! :D oops Android?
#
[eddie]
That would be swentel :)
#
[eddie]
Not sure if he is planning on building out libraries
#
jacky
ahhh okay okay
#
swentel
reading backscroll
#
swentel
hmm no plans for libraries yet
#
swentel
although I can see indieauth as an interesting library
#
swentel
not so sure about the rest atm
KevinMarks and wolftune joined the channel
#
jacky
gotcha
#
jacky
I think the biggest one for me would be leaning on a microformats lib
#
jacky
micropub and microsub rely on a networking library and people got a lot of opinions on which one to use lol

[snarfed] I have already had a look in the log, but don't understand it 😉 Brid.gy identifies the photo post as "article", maybe from schema.org notation. the mf2 tags are correctly there, h-entry and the img has the class u-photo.

renem: looking at https://renem.net/photos/2018-10-16-ausfahrt-neue-kamera/ , its img u-photo has data-src instead of src. mf2 parsing expects the image url in src.

#
jacky
snarfed: is that post JS rendering?
#
jacky
from a curl, I see what you're saying
#
snarfed
jacky: probably
#
jacky
ah, not post, I meant pre-
#
jacky
hmm this is interesting of an edge case
#
jacky
is this how the <picture> tag works?
#
jacky
_nope_
#
jacky
it expects a value for "src"
#
jacky
prob some JS lib that's being clever
joshproehl and [eddie] joined the channel
#
[eddie]
Yeah, modern JS libs like doing data-src because they use that to "dynamically" render different size images
#
[eddie]
Not something I do but I've seen references to it
[renem] joined the channel
#
[renem]
[snarfed] Looking at the first image it is in a <figure><picture> tag construct included. Inside it the <img> tag as a proper "src" attribute. But maybe Brid.gy expects a standalone img-tag and that's not the case?
#
snarfed
renem: bridgy uses the output of a microformats2 parser, and i think the mf2 parsing rules expect img src, yes. background: http://microformats.org/wiki/microformats2
#
snarfed
probably time to move to #-dev
joshproehl and [tantek] joined the channel
#
jacky
[renem]: try looking at that page using something like `curl` or `wget`
#
jacky
the `src` attribute only get filled by javascript it seems
#

b/c I don't see `src` being set when I do a view source in Firefox

but I do if I inspect the page in the browser

An edit (AKA diff, change) is a special type of reply that indicates a set of suggested changes to the post it is replying to. A collection of (presumably related) suggested edits in open source is often called a patch or pull request https://indieweb.org/edit

[dmitshur]
so I've been prototyping and testing out creating repos implicitly on push at this NYC HWC meetup. will need to think it over and see how it fits into everything else, but so far it seems/feels pretty cool
mblaney joined the channel
#
[dmitshur]
corresponding events:
#
jacky
interesting
#
[dmitshur]
obviously "created repository" events no longer make much sense... it's not possible to provide a description, etc.
#
[dmitshur]
but I can parse the package documentation from the code in the pushed commit, and use that instead
#
[dmitshur]
it'd look like this: http://instantshare.win/1ph3sspqsgbf3.png
#
[dmitshur]
what bothers me about this approach is that some of the events will be overlapping. e.g. pushing a new commit and creating a package would happen at the same time. which do I display first, which second? previously, all events were more orthogonal and mapped 1:1 to explicit human-driven actions.
#
[dmitshur]
I'm not directly creating a package; I'm pushing a git commit that happens to contain a new package and hence it's indirectly created...
#
[dmitshur]
there's some precedent for it though. e.g. pushing a git commit with "Fixes #nnn." in commit message makes you close an issue at the same time, so that's 1 direct action (git push) mapped to two separate events ("you pushed commit", "you closed issue").
