Oh no google said .dev was going to be for internal use only

Is og:image my best bet for setting the twitter card image?
#
dougbeal
Can can I just add it to an image tag?
#
aaronpk
I think for twitter cards you have to be explicit, but they read both the twitter and FB meta tag
#
aaronpk
Facebook will use an img tag if the image is large enough iirc
#
tantek
dougbeal, see /link-preview
#
tantek
plenty of how-to there
#
tantek
and especially how to avoid getting sucked into thinking you need any og: anything

re data transfer project, we discussed it briefly here a while back when someone noticed the github repo
#
GWG
snarfed, [miklb]: I probably should more accurately call it a 2.0 as I did with the milestone. snarfed's assessment is right, it isn't discarding anything.

[miklb]
sure, but where/how some of the logic is moving, so where to read which code is still important. I’m not complaining, just trying to figure out the breaking spots in my desired mobile posting workflows.
#
[miklb]
or I should say, trying to fix the broken stuff on my site so I can properly evaluate the different options
#
GWG
I was hoping that the changes would make the code better in places

What is this about Micropub post type Discovery?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "this about Micropub post type Discovery" yet. Would you like to create it? (Or just say "this about Micropub post type Discovery is ____", a sentence describing the term)
#
GWG
No, aaronpk I think
#
dougbeal
GWG: something something query micropub endpoint something something acceptiable kinds something something client?
#
[miklb]
how does post-kinds interpret micropub to determine if it’s an entry or note?
#
dougbeal
I think its more a micropub capable system can indicate to a client hints on kinds it supports
#
GWG
miklb, Post Kinds implements post type discovery.
#
GWG
Look at the plugin class
#
[miklb]
thanks
#
dougbeal
oh, well Quill supports it now, let me go see what it looks liek
#
dougbeal
Oh, just disables functionality if endpoint doesn't support it

[dougbeal] yep, the goal is to avoid confusing users if they don’t know the technical specs of their Micropub endpoint and want to use a Micropub Client

This stuff looks great. “A Webmention is simply an @mention that works from one website to another!”

↩️ For those familiar, it may be a useful shorthand, but it simplifies things too far. Webmention uses knowledge of prior history and abuses of Trackback/Pingbacks/Refbacks and improves on them. Cross reference: https://indieweb.org/Webmention-developer and https://indieweb.org/Vouch

@hdv
Great post by @ChrisAldrich about Webmentions, the open W3C-standardised way to mention each other on the web. I’ve had the pleasure of using it on my site as Perch CMS supports Webmentions out of the box. https://alistapart.com/article/webmentions-enabling-better-communication-on-the-internet
