IndieWeb: “it just works” - sebsel
#
sebsel
/me remembers the HOURS that went into the rainbowflag-emoji without a real happy ending
#
Zegnat
Wait for Apple’s animated poop emoji to mess it all up again.
#
aaronpk
Oh gosh yeah how's that going to work
#
Zegnat
Maybe they add another modifier codebyte infront of the emoji to trigger animation. That would be a very clean way. And easy to ignore if your application doesn’t want to handle them and just display statics
#
Zegnat
But probably will not be a logical as that? :(
#
aaronpk
We'll find out soon
#
snarfed
aww sebsel you mean https://github.com/snarfed/granary/pull/108 ? it worked though! right?
#
Loqi
[sebsel] #108 add facebook pride reacji
#
sebsel
snarfed oh yes, it worked! I think the sad thing I remembered was that Facebook ditched the function after a few weeks. But indie-reacji still works for the rainbowflag for me!
#
snarfed
ahh
#
sebsel
Next year it might come back :)

Interesting stats https://twitter.com/elongreen/status/907574723265138689

@elongreen
Twitter is wonderful in many ways, but as a means to get your stories read, rather useless. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DJhaZbBUEAAdrU3.jpg (twtr.io/1W3Tw3sBBrV)
#
petermolnar
welp, my solution is simple: ignore emoji. It'll pass. It has to.
#
Zegnat
It is a little weird how that rainbowflag availability is gatekept by Facebook. I couldn’t use it at Pride this last weekend :(

schmarty
good morning, indieweb!
#
Loqi
schmarty: sknebel left you a message 4 days, 16 hours ago: we talked about interview streaming, this (while still under development) could be interesting: https://github.com/getfireside/fireside / https://dev.fr.sd/ streams low-quality, records high-quality in local browser and merges both sides afterwards
#
schmarty
sknebel: thanks for the link! looks very interesting!
# vivus joined the channel
#
vivus
Is this the channel for discussing decentralized alternatives to social-media companies, etc. ?
#
schmarty
what is the indieweb?
#
Loqi
The IndieWeb is about owning your domain, using it as your primary identity to publish on your own site (optionally syndicate elsewhere), and owning your data https://indieweb.org/IndieWeb
#
sebsel
Yes and no, this is the channel to discuss IndieWeb, which can be described as an decentralized alternative to social-media companies :)
#
vivus
why has adoption of decentralized alternatives been so lacklustre ?
#
schmarty
vivus: there is a channel focused on more generalized discussion of (re-)decentralization at #redecentralize
#
vivus
schmarty: is that the correct name? it's empty
#
schmarty
oh no, my bad. it is a channel on matrix rather than an IRC room. #redecentralize:matrix.org
# adactio joined the channel
#
vivus
I was thinking of getting Matrix. Perhaps the time has arrived
#
petermolnar
vivus matrix isn't a silver bullet either :)
#
vivus
well it's a better option to a centralized chat platform like slack, no?
# KevinMarks joined the channel
#
petermolnar
good question - since it's quite hard to set up your own server instance; once that is out of reach most are going to be using a centralised hub anyway with a simple client setup
# KevinMarks joined the channel
#
petermolnar
so... in some terms, yes, because in theory, everyone is free to set their own server up
#
petermolnar
in reality see mastodon
#
petermolnar
indieweb approached from a view: we believe the more diverse the web the better, so we only try to interconnect existing stuff
#
petermolnar
eg. make websites talk to eachother, like pingbacks did
#
vivus
I have no issue using a semi-decentralized option where there is a community working in tandem. Slack is not that. It doesn't even want to be a purveyor of OSS
#
petermolnar
I never said slack is better
#
petermolnar
but then you have xmpp
#
petermolnar
and I still don't completely get what matrix has over xmpp and/or sip and voip
#
petermolnar
apart from sitting on HTTP instead of semi-forgotten protocols
#
petermolnar
so, with indieweb, your handle, your main online personality is your domain and your website
#
petermolnar
which is probably the most essential difference

#
vivus
why has adoption of something like h-card been so low? do people not have interest to use it?
# KevinMarks joined the channel
#
petermolnar
that I don't know. Google has a tendency to come up with their own (NIL?) then sunset it (see: https://aaronparecki.com/2016/12/17/8/owning-my-reviews ), there is Dublin Core and a few others as well, but in reality, I have no idea
#
Loqi
[Aaron Parecki] Why Microformats? Owning My Reviews
#
aaronpk
people don't tend to care about formats unless there is a concrete use case for them. this can take the form of "SEO" where people will implement whatever google says they will index, or facebook/twitter's meta tags so that links will look good when shared on facebook/twitter
#
aaronpk
in indieweb terms, we implement protocols like h-card and h-entry so that we can comment on each others' sites and the comments look like more than just plain links. they can show the author name and photo and such.

#
Loqi
ok, I added "https://fillmem.com/post/fast-secured-and-free-static-site/" to the "See Also" section of /Getting_Started
#
[kevinmarks]
Talking of opaque syntax with > in
#
petermolnar
[kevinmarks] that should be either >, >> or <<<
#
petermolnar
but << doesn't make sense
#
Loqi
Sorry, I couldn't find a page named "but" or similar
#
tantek
petermolnar - is that really a good reference for "Getting Started"? Seems very developer centric
#
petermolnar
sorry, Loqi
#
tantek
it even starts with the disclaimer accordingly: "Note: Unless you’re a developer or you want to learn how to do sites, my first advice is to avoid to build your own static site. "
#
tantek
/Getting_Started really should be focused on at least Generation 2 by now, and developer-specific stuff should get moved to a separate page
#
petermolnar
fair point
#
petermolnar
splitting /Getting_Started is a good idea
#
tantek
even many developers do not want to hassle with installing their own software for this stuff
#
tantek
much less "Setup the development environment" (!!!) (actual heading from the article)
#
petermolnar
eg. "Fast, simple, clickthrough? Goto X" "developer, CLI, gory details? Goto Y
#
tantek
petermolnar: no, "Fast, simple, clickthrough" should just be there, in-line
#
tantek
no extra nav
#
petermolnar
ok
#
petermolnar
need to go now, but I'll look into splitting it
#
tantek
developers know enough and are patient enough to do the extra nav and find more details
#
tantek
petermolnar: no, not splitting. forking all the dev-specific stuff to a separate page
#
tantek
seems similar but it's a matter of perspective
#
tantek
this is a bit meta so I'll go there

can h-card be seen as an alternative to linkedin?
#
tantek
vivus, more like h-resume, but yeah
#
tantek
Spain puts the smack down on FB: http://www.politico.eu/article/facebook-fined-e1-2-million-in-spain/
# wolftune joined the channel
# snarfed joined the channel
#
vivus
tantek: why h-resume? I was thinking that for general networking between professionals, you keep your h-card (and interoperable between your phone-contacts, vcards, etc.) and when you want to apply for a job, you have h-resume
#
vivus
2 million euros is a drop in the ocean for FB
#
tantek
vivus because LinkedIn is primarily about building an online resume / professional history profile, and that's what h-resume best represents.
#
tantek
nearly all silos / social media are "for general networking between professionals" - that's not unique to LInkedIn, hence yes, start with using your own site with an h-card for that
#
vivus
valid point
# sl007 joined the channel
#
vivus
I don't wish to use h-card to be site-centric. I want to make it mobile phonebook friendly.
#
tantek
wanting to use it for whatever your own purposes -> site-centric which you control
#
tantek
it starts with site-centric, that enables you to expand beyond that to whatever specific use-cases ("mobile phonebook friendly", etc.) that you come up with over time

tantek

quill does like/repost things itself if you've configured twitter in Quill
