I just borrowed something from aaronpk that I liked for my code.

What is multitags?

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

!tell tantek I have officially added multitag support to my site: https://eddiehinkle.com/tag/fiona,jasmine,cat,cats/
#
Loqi
Ok, I'll tell them that when I see them next

[tantek]
Eddie, that's an "and" right?
#
Loqi
[tantek]: [eddie] left you a message 2 minutes ago: I have officially added multitag support to my site: https://eddiehinkle.com/tag/fiona,jasmine,cat,cats/
#
[eddie]
that's correct
#
[eddie]
Also got my person tags fixed ๐Ÿ™Œ

My IndieAuth endpoint is totally stateless, yay! And codes even expire!

kisik21 has 6 karma in this channel over the last year (18 in all channels)
#
[eddie]
congrats!
#
kisik21
I just need to make a token endpoint
#
kisik21
but it would be stateful
#
kisik21
since my admin interface should have token revocation feature
#
[tantek]
eddie++ nicely done!
#
Loqi

eddie are you sure you're treating it as an "and"? it looks like e.g. https://eddiehinkle.com/tag/tech,indieweb is showing posts with just "tech" tag but no "indieweb" tag
#
[tantek]
I mean in addition to posts with both
#
kisik21
I thought of a clever idea of encoding data as plain text and then passing a hash with it. If the data is tampered with, I easily notice. And nobody can pass me another hash without knowing a little secret!
#
kisik21
The secret is stored in the config file and closely guarded.
#
[eddie]
Oh oops, itโ€™s obviously too late, itโ€™s set up as an or
#
[eddie]
Which I think is how I want it
#
[eddie]
๐Ÿค” Iโ€™ll have to think more about if that should be an AND or an OR
#
[eddie]
I can see the usefulness of both

I think refinement (ands) is a more common case than unions (or), simply because you can "just" open multiple tabs to look at such unions, but a refinement can only work with explicit support

gRegorLove: what's up with your webmentions? You don't seem to be advertising an endpoint (but I have passed your challenge of mentioning you with getting your h-card!)
#
kisik21
But now I can pass the mentioning challenge, yay! Now maybe private posts?
#
kisik21
No, I'll need logging in for that
#
gRegorLove
There's an HTTP Link header for it. I'll have to check on why no <link> element currently; don't recall if I removed that for some reason.
#
kisik21
gRegorLove: you should get one since my implementation currently doesn't look at link headers (but it should probably!)
#
kisik21
but your name is now on my page because your h-card is now fetchable in my code!

Refinement versus unions varies depending on the commonness of each term. If the intersection is empty, then the union is more useful. If one is super common, then the other is a good refinement.
#
[kevinmarks]
The other thing that is handy is looking at which tags co-occur. That can be useful for further expansion if they found a rarer term with a more common one attached.
