I hate writing this code lol omg

(namely page resolution code)

[chrisaldrich]
Anyone know of an iOS equivalent of the Android app URL Forwarder? It essentially becomes a target at which you can share a URL to and it will redirect to a web page and potentially programatically add to or change the input URL.
#
[schmarty]
Shortcuts is great for that

Wish I could get shortcuts to do anything interesting. So far all I’ve been able to do is hardcode a key combo to launch the DVD Player app
#
[schmarty]
it's a powerful app that i find very frustrating to work with and debug
#
vilhalmer
I used it to hack together a replacement for airdrop and clipboard handoff with my linux machines, works but I wouldn't call the process smooth exactly
#
vilhalmer
immediately became critical to my workflow though so not the worst use of time I've ever spent

I've now seen two extended references to changing the CSS for others' sites (silos) this weekend. It's always been possible, but is it a _thing_ now?
#
[chrisaldrich]
Is anyone changing the look/feel of silos or other websites where they tend to spend a lot of time or feel the look and feel aren't up to snuff?
#
[chrisaldrich]
What would this pattern be called?
#
aaronpk
i mean i've been doing that to show youtube chat on my livestreams

user stylesheets
#

and they last for a little while until the silos change all their classes
#
[chrisaldrich]
I was worried someone would remember "user stylesheets".
#
KartikPrabhu
I got your back
#
[chrisaldrich]
One of the references used the phrase "digital nesting" which I thought apt, though I'm not 100% sure she used in the way that I took it.
#
[chrisaldrich]
What are user stylesheets?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "user stylesheets" yet. Would you like to create it? (Or just say "user stylesheets is ____", a sentence describing the term)
#
[chrisaldrich]
have you written up how you do that aaronpk?

[chrisaldrich]
What is user stylesheet?
#
Loqi
A user stylesheet is a customization of a third-party website within a browser to change the look and feel of that site using custom CSS or other code https://indieweb.org/user_stylesheet

^^ a stub if others have examples

Catching up on that social reader discussion… You can follow blogs in Micro.blog by domain name. You can't enter a specific RSS feed to follow. https://www.manton.org/2019/05/16/following-other-blogs.html
#
Loqi
Following other blogs on Micro.blog
#
[manton]
It works with most blogs where Micro.blog can discover the feed. No need for someone to register first.
#
aaronpk
ahh cool!
#
aaronpk
i searched "follow" and "external" in the help site and didn't find anything
awolf joined the channel
#
[manton]
Hmm, thanks, I need to improve the help for this. I think the only page that mentions it is this one: https://help.micro.blog/2019/following/
#
aaronpk
maybe just changing the subtitle of that page would help, because I don't usually think of individual blogs as "other networks"
KindTwo joined the channel
#
[manton]
Good idea. I think the "other networks" was referring to Mastodon.

Hi! Just wrote a rant about useless news outlets and posted it to IndieNews
#
vika_nezrimaya
I'm really angry at my newsfeed right now... No real journalism, just some crude tech news retellings
#
vika_nezrimaya
Don't read Soviet newspapers before lunch, as they say
#
vika_nezrimaya
My website is really useful even if it's an old version. e-content gets parsed for webmentions to send. My syndication is a bit broken on client side, so I wrote the link manually. It still got syndicated!
#
vika_nezrimaya
Oops sorry probably meant to post in #dev
#
swentel
that's fine, don't think many people are awake yet :)
#
swentel
vika_nezrimaya, how's the android client going?
#
KartikPrabhu
sounds like #dev talk ;)
