[tantek]
I wonder if there's any point / advantage to converging the "extra info about things with URLs" feature
#
[tantek]
since mf2 JSON already has "rel-urls"
#
[tantek]
(which obviously could have been better named just "urls" in hindsight)
#
[tantek]
with hreflang, media, type, title, and text properties per URL
#
[tantek]
and "rels" too obv
#
aaronpk
Could definitely be useful

↩️ @EddieHinkle Also was your tweet a webmention? Should my reply have shown up too?

@EddieHinkle
↩️ Yeah, I’m using Bridgy with webmentions. I’m receiving your replies, my display code has some bugs I need to fix, but your replies are received and show up in my Social Reader (https://eddiehinkle.com/2019/01/11/2/reply/)

↩️ http://Just.Be.Careful if you are doing this in the EU. There may be GDPR implications. https://sebastiangreger.net/2018/05/indieweb-privacy-challenge-webmentions-backfeeds-gdpr/ A user never gave you permission to take their content and copy it to your website. Better to just surface direct webmentions

Has anyone ever used MariaDB for NoSQL stuff? Through their “dynamic columns” thing for semi-schemaless tables?

↩️ also, interestingly, anyone can send a webmention! if you get a native webmention, you can check that the source post links to you, but you don't actually know whether its author or someone else sent the webmention.

Aaron: How do you identify auto generated alt text from Instagram?
#
[Rose]
Because if the user had a way to identify that the alt text sent with the image is autogenerated then I think an option to include it or not on OYI is unnecessary - the user can just not use it, right?
#
aaronpk
[Rose]: I need more data, but it looks like the auto generated text always starts with a prefix like "image probably contains"

[kevinmarks]
how do you set alt text in the app?

no, still broken

It me is my glitch app that I'm trying to wrangle my micropub and twitter posse in, but the auth is a bit tangled

I totally thought it was a /reaction so I tapped it to see what would happen 😂

As in that tweet - it me 😂

Need a reacji for it me

petermolnar picking up from main room. i have a rel=feed link header on my homepage to indicate where my stream of posts lives.

aperture will show you things linked with rel=feed when you type in someone's home page too
#
petermolnar
is multiple rel-feed, for each topic, a viable route?
#
jacky
<jason-goldblum-well-there-it-is.gif>
#
jacky
petermolnar: I do that passively by changing the RSS feeds on the category page to be that of the category
#
petermolnar
wait, that is ok, that is not my problem
#
jacky
ah okay
#
petermolnar
so, per category feed, that is ok
#
petermolnar
I can't even think of many other way of doing posts
#
petermolnar
for my front, landing page, I want to move on from The Feed
#
petermolnar
right now, in order to be somewhat compatible, I decided to show the latest post from each category
#
petermolnar
an that is structured as a feed
#
petermolnar
so it will keep on working, and due to my low frequency of posting, it's even fine for following
#
petermolnar
but it's far from ideal
#
petermolnar
actually, I'm not certain what ideal is
#
petermolnar
maybe if I can indicate multiple feeds, for each topic
#
petermolnar
there are only a handful people out there who'd be interested in all the content - IT articles, travel journals, random notes, AND photos - so subscribe to topic/category is OK
#
petermolnar
but how do I indicate their existence?
#
[schmarty]
petermolnar: i believe aperture will offer each rel=feed
#
[schmarty]
and older feed readers will show multiple rel=alternate feeds, along with their name
#
petermolnar
that should do it, I'll give it a try

petermolnar: bridgy also follows rel-feed

what is composite stream
#
Loqi
A composite stream is a stream that interleaves multiple types of posts, such as notes and articles https://indieweb.org/composite_stream
#
[tantek]
it sounds like your "latest post from each category" is a new kind of minimal composite stream - definitely add it to Brainstorming on that page if it's just an idea so far, or if you've implemented it, add it to IndieWeb Examples with a link (and maybe even screenshot!)
#
aaronpk
my home page does that with only a few kinds of posts
#
[tantek]
structured into an h-feed of their own, or just presentationally?
#
aaronpk
just presentationally
#
[tantek]
worth capturing as an example? or is it more like a "portal" than a "stream" in its presentation?
#
aaronpk
definitely not presented as a stream
#
KartikPrabhu
what is stream?
#
Loqi
A stream refers to a collection of posts, typically time-ordered, similar to a feed, and often updated in real-time, with updates propagated via a notification-based protocol like WebSub, and published as HTML (h-feed/h-entry) https://indieweb.org/stream
#
KartikPrabhu
what is portal?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "portal" yet. Would you like to create it? (Or just say "portal is ____", a sentence describing the term)
#
[tantek]
KartikPrabhu see also My Netscape
#
[tantek]
here's a thorn-ridden rabbithole for you: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_web_syndication_technology#Early_web_syndication:_ICE_and_RSS (mentions enough of "My Netscape" to provide context)

@mattinthecouch
↩️ @chrisbiscardi I should be able to query for webmentions via dev mode once it's all set up correct?
(twtr.io/1nYv0FNFv1L)
#
@chrisbiscardi
↩️ you have to configure an identity, deploy, sign up to webmentions, get your username, configure username, redeploy, and then you can access the APIs afaik
(twtr.io/1nYvDtD0xPC)

@mattinthecouch
↩️ @chrisbiscardi Didn't even think to refresh http://brid.gy after getting everything set up! Duh
(twtr.io/1nYw2wdTa2Q)
#
@chrisbiscardi
↩️ @mattinthecouch you also have to find a tweet with a webmention and "re-send" it to get it to show up on webmention's feed
