hi indieweb

oedmarap
Hi mblaney, how's it going?
#
mblaney
good oedmarap, how are you?
#
GWG
mblaney: Saw the changelog
#
oedmarap
mblaney: taking a coffee break, gonna dive into some work in a bit :)
#
mblaney
hey GWG yes nice work getting it all started!
#
GWG
mblaney: Took a bit longer than I thought
#
mblaney
I'm thinking of starting a project to automatically copy photos from my phone to my website, anyone heard of something that can do that?
#
[snarfed]
maybe tasker, shortcuts, etc
#
GWG
mblaney: A few options.
#
oedmarap
mblaney depends on how you want to display them on your website
#
GWG
mblaney: Do you want to just add them to a directory or actually post them?
#
oedmarap
Off the top of my head you can probably get away with that using Syncthing/Nextcoud, a bit of rsync where needed, and some JavaScript and a build pipeline if necessary
#
GWG
NextCloud's app has an instant upload feature.
#
GWG
So, you could just monitor that directory when uploaded for new files
#
mblaney
just add them to a directory
#
GWG
mblaney: Then NextCloud's app may work.

I use Nextcloud for this. Wish it copied the little video files that are part of iOS Live Photos

#
GWG
Hi, [schmarty].
#
mblaney
cool thanks the NextCloud app looks like what I'm after.
#
mblaney
except I don't want to run NextCloud on the server... can I avoid that part somehow?
#
mblaney
also, hi schmarty
#
[schmarty]
Haha hi GWG and mblaney!
#
GWG
mblaney: I run it elsewhere
#
GWG
[schmarty]: I seem to be running an online meetup tomorrow
#
oedmarap
mblaney: You can take a look at https://github.com/photoprism/photoprism and https://github.com/LycheeOrg/Lychee if you want them to be in their own little space as well
#
[schmarty]
I am not aware of a nextcloud-compatible thing that would catch those files for you. I also run it separately from my main site

GWG: exciting! I may join if I am free!!
#
GWG
[schmarty]: 6PM, I'm trying the Salt method
#
GWG
Something called Learn Coffee Discussion
#
mblaney
[schmarty], GWG can you access the uploads from your website?
#
Salt[m]
GWG: cool, I'll try to add the couple of changes suggested from last time, like timeboxing intro and etherpad
#
[schmarty]
mblaney: I could, but I don't! I think of nextcloud as doing just the one step of photos from phone to a server without me having to do much
#
mblaney
thanks [schmarty] I'll have a look at it then
#
GWG
Salt[m]: I did in my event
#
Salt[m]
GWG: awesome

I got nextcloud working but the next challenge is I would like uploads to be private. haven't got very far with that yet.
#
GWG
mblaney: Keep us posted
#
mblaney
ah they recommend setting up your data directory so that it's outside your web root. So that's the answer to that :-)

I've no idea who else reads History of the Web newsletter, but https://thehistoryoftheweb.com/postscript/april-2020-weblog-learning-to-be-on-a-new-web/ was remarkably salient/on-point from our IndieWeb wiki chat and other chats
#
[LewisCowles]
If they had mentioned wiki gardening, I would have "felt personally targeted by this relatable content", which might be the work of an algorithm, but it's getting all the bias

Wonderful. Do you think people will mind if I lurk?
#
[LewisCowles]
I technically posted to my site earlier today and completed a project since last HWC
#
GWG
Anyone going to stop by at 6PM Eastern, 11PM UK for HWC East Coast US?
#
GWG
Insomniacs welcome
#
[Ana_Rodrigues]
friendly lurk is welcome of course : D
#
[LewisCowles]
GWG I might if blood sugar or anything else keeps me awake
#
GWG
[LewisCowles]: I can send over some homemade soda in near future
#
[LewisCowles]
I have another friend making that
#
[LewisCowles]
they are I think beginning so starting with plastic bottles, rather than clip-top glass. I've been thinking of trying something similar
#
[LewisCowles]
I tried to make banana fruit leathers today... The result makes me wish I'd eaten the bananas
[jeremycherfas] joined the channel
#
[jeremycherfas]
At least it isn’t banana bread.
#
[LewisCowles]
I can't make bread until I get some citrus or some yeast
#
GWG
I love banana bread
#
[LewisCowles]
shelves are empty of yeast and I'm uncertain about cultivating my own from fruit
#
[jeremycherfas]
I have sourdough starter aplenty and would gladly send you a dried sample. Also, my banana bread recipe calls chemical leavening.

Just a quick question I can’t seem to find a simple answer to - Do I need to use cPanel alongside a content management system such as Kirby or can I use Kirby independently of cPanel ?
#
sebsel
[Molly]: I think the answer is that they are independent. Kirby is a CMS, cPanel is a tool to manage webhosts. They live on different levels.
#
sebsel
If Kirby is the machine that delivers your website to who-ever is asking, then that machine should sit in a building (a server)
#
sebsel
cPanel is a way to make rooms in that building (to divide the server into accounts)
#
sebsel
so you can also use Kirby on a server with just one big room / without rooms / without cPanel
#
sebsel
and you can also put something else in the room / use cPanel without Kirby.
#
sebsel
Hopefully that makes sense.
#
[Molly]
[sebsel] amazing, yes a really good explanation - thank you for your help !
#
sebsel
yw :)
#
GWG
sebsel: In the building analogy, explain webmention and microformats?

After the HWC London there was a meeting of the London accessibility group with speakers from Microsoft and Elsewhere covering accessibility, including automated testing tools, which the accessibility experts suggested only cover 30-40% of the cases a dedicated consultant might
#
[LewisCowles]
I thought it relevant to HWC London

[Aaron_Klemm] we can back-channel on 4 if you'd find it valuable, or I can try to write up two topics

Excellent, let's do it. I'd like to hear what's on your mind for that topic
