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

jeremycherfas
I haven't followed in detail; what have you been trying to make?
[kevinmarks] joined the channel
#
[jgmac1106]
a listening and read plugin by forking [cleverdevil] watching plugin
#
jeremycherfas
Ah. I haven't looked at the watching plugin at all. Doesn't really interest me. Where did you get stuck? I would imagine it could be repurposed. But what do I know?
#
jeremycherfas
A lot of it seems to be concerned with an image to accompany the other details.

[jgmac1106] took a very quick look a moment ago... try renaming "read.php" to "Read.php" first.

hey indie webbers! I need some insight on the stack
#
pfrazee
when you visit people's personal sites, you have buttons to follow each other and etc, right?
#
pfrazee
how are those implemented? Is there something akin to an intent system that routes to your own software?

#
sknebel
pfrazee: there's a system that works based on protocol handlers that was developed a while back: https://indieweb.org/indie-config https://indieweb.org/webactions, but right now the bigger trend (from what I see) is more towards social readers where you can reply/like/... out of the reader
#
pfrazee
sknebel: thanks. How would you *prefer* this got solved? The readers are a pragmatic solution but it would be nice if https://pfrazee.com (for example) were just "my profile" in the same way as on, like, twitter
#
sknebel
problems with the interface in the site are a) what does it do for people that do not have it set up b) is it recognizable if there is no common design to profile pages and c) I have to expect many sites not supporting it
#
sknebel
so personally, I think there's good reasons to prefer browser UI (in the form of extensions for now of course) and for people you already follow the readers
#
pfrazee
yeah
#
sknebel
i.e. I can reply to blog posts with a micropub client that's a browser extension, and my feedreader (I use a traditional one for now) has one so I can quickly follow new pages, and the UI is always the same
#
pfrazee
okay thanks for the insight

Hi guys.

[jgmac1106]
hello @cambridgeport90 my kid has a basketball game I am running off to but people here can asnwer Activity Pub questions

#
cambridgeport90[
Thanks jgmac1106 . I think this will be a fun group, that's for sure. I love how this works. I want to set one of these servers up myself when I get to it. Doesn't seem too complicated. Seems like something you could do with Docker easily.

I'm curious, though if you have a ActivityPubn plugin enabled on a site, then do you still need to connect with BridgyFed? I'm still confused about that.

What's new in indieweb land for you, mblaney?
#
cambridgeport90[
I'm still actually working on trying to fix things. This is going to be interesting.
#
mblaney
hi gRegorLove I've been working on my reader, it has better post type discovery now. Wanted better photo post support mainly.
#
mblaney
how about yourself?
#
gRegorLove
Not much, unfortunately. I'm thinking about what indieweb newwwyear commitments I want to make. Releasing the source of indiebookclub will probably be one.
#
gRegorLove
And working out some of the details on possibly switching the read-status property to a category on the read post.
