Enforced consistency is my vote - otherwise you have lots of cases where folks need to manually change it to make it nicer, which inevitably get unknowingly reverted in the future

Definitely happy to chat more on Slack / at #HomebrewWebsiteClub if you're able to join, but my recommendation is generally Hugo. Templating / documentation is not the best, especially if you're not used to Go's templating. I moved from Jekyll last year https://www.jvt.me/posts/2019/01/04/goodbye-jekyll-hello-hugo/ and have found it a much better experience. It's super quick to build (even for my large multi-purpose site) and has a tonne of stuff built-in to it that makes it fairly batteries included

I moved from Jekyll to Hugo cause of speed and massively recommend it. It's a bit painful documentation wise / if Go's templating isn't your cup of tea but I could see it being one of the longer running static site generators

As a quick note on the Netlify Functions side, you can do them on-demand - for instance micropub-media-endpoint-proxy.netlify.app has a Netlify function that you can call arbitrarily - it may take a few seconds to spin up, but it works alright.

So my angle on this is to have a client that is completely auto-populating. It's not necessarily something that will be useful for everyone, I admit (and is a slightly different interaction model than we usually use).

But I think it'd be quite nice to be able to point a Micropub client to a Micropub server, and have it render an editor for all the given post-types, with all the given properties, instead of needing to build the client with some awareness of what is required.

GitHub syndication with blockquotes does not seem to quite work

I'm not sure if this was an issue on my side, or on Bridgy's, but when I tried to publish a reply to a GitHub issue, the syndicated comment originally had a >, not a > indicating a blockquote, which meant I needed to manually edit the comment on GitHub to make it render nicer.

Reply to https://github.com/indieweb/micropub-extensions/issues/1

I've not looked at how many other Micropub servers operate, but isn't it quite common to have certain fields as required? I.e. I'm writing this comment on Micropublish and it requires in-reply-to and content for a reply type.

Personally, I'm not sure if Webmentions do make sense in this case, because Webmentions are meant to be sent - and received - multiple times, from a given webpage, and not necessarily by you. Unless you add some sufficient de-duplication, it may still not work very well.

Reply to https://lobste.rs/s/hwhptd/which_atom_rss_reader_do_you_use

I'm quite heavily into the IndieWeb movement, in which we've designed a new standard Microsub which allows for a slightly better API than "regular" RSS/Atom readers, as it allows for you to use different feed formats on the backend. It also splits between the client and the server quite nicely, so I can use Indigenous for Android when on the move, and Monocle when I'm on the desktop. The best thing about the standard, aside from allowing extensible feed parsing, is that I can use different clients to read it, instead of relying on a single provider - which I believe we've seen with some of the RSS/Atom readers around currently.

The server I use is Aperture, built and run by Aaron Parecki, and I subscribe to a mix of RSS/Atom, JSON Feed and Microformats2 feeds

 Reply

Sorry, the Alpine one wouldn't be helpful anyway. The Arch package (https://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/nextcloud-client/) has the nextcloudcmd executable, but it appears to need a few other things installed from the package, such as libnextcloudsync.so. What platform are you running your server on? It looks like the packages are available on https://help.nextcloud.com/t/linux-packages-status/10216 for each service - given the Arch package is the "desktop client", it appears that it's possible to install the client on your headless server and still interact with it via nextcloudcmd

 Reply

That being said, it looks like the Docker example shows that the Alpine package contains nextcloudcmd, so you may be able to pull it out of https://pkgs.alpinelinux.org/package/edge/community/x86_64/nextcloud-client (or if you'd like I can extract it and send it over?)

Is the expectation for this that will contain all of the properties? Or could just be the URL/UID?

For instance, I've got a static site, so my Micropub endpoint would proxy a generated file from the site. If I can reduce the amount of properties to add to this, it'd be good, especially if this is really only being used for post listing.

I'm really sorry to hear this - I had a kidney stent put in a couple of years ago, but I was quite fortunate that it was only ever so mild discomfort, although my body at the time was recovering from my ruptured appendix so maybe that distracted me? What have you been given for the pain?

Reply to https://shkspr.mobi/blog/2020/04/dude-im-getting-a-linux-dell-maybe/

I recently asked if anyone I knew had one of the new models but got no responses (via my blog, or Twitter).

I've got an XPS 13 9343 and love it - largely form factor, but also the 3K screen - and have been wondering about upgrading recently, in part due to USB-C and fingerprint sensor, not for any other reason.

According to the Arch Wiki entry for the new XPS it's mostly alright, but doesn't seem to have fingerprint support.

May be that it needs to get upstreamed by the folks at Ubuntu.

In case it's a point of interest, the highest-end one has a 4K screen (RRP ยฃ1768.00)

I'd say go for the slightly newer one, with the caveat that if you stick with the Ubuntu build it comes with, it'll probably be alright, but if you want to re-install/install a different OS, it'll likely not work as well, and may require a more up-to-date kernel - as I decided to use Arch at the time it meant I always had the latest kernels, so as they added support for the drivers upstream, I was getting them pretty quickly, whereas friends with non-cutting edge kernels didn't have as much luck.

I really do recommend Dell for the XPS based on my existing one, and would be very interested to see how you get on with it, if you do get it, so it can inform my decision to buy one while I'm in quarantine and don't need my laptop to be as functional as I would if I were travelling.

Reply to https://github.com/aaronpk/IndieAuth.com/issues

Currently, the format of the tokens provided by IndieAuth.com is a signed JWT (JWS) using HS256.

If we were to update this to be RS256, we could allow clients to treat it as a JWS, not an opaque token that needs to be introspected by the token endpoint.

This could allow clients validating tokens as such to do so much more easily, locally, while reducing load on the token endpoint.

Because token revocation is not widespread at this point, it would enable clients to not need to introspect unnecessarily.

I'm not sure I agree. Speaking about your health allows everyone to be a bit more open about everything - one reason I blogged about my ruptured appendix was that it would show others what I'd gone through, what they could learn from it, and understand just how sucky it was for me.

Additionally, speaking about mental health is incredibly important, as most folks suffer from it, just don't talk about it, and awareness of it can help folks get diagnosis / help if they're not aware of it.

I don't think so no. I've done this on my Micropub side, so it stores it in the same content format as the actual post. I guess we'd likely do something similar, or when loading the page pulling that data from Granary?

It's the MF2-JSON that Granary provides, I store that as-is, then render it as I need to ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

I'd gone in 2017 but not 2018, then went in 2019 and felt pretty uncomfortable as a half Indian man. After being so used to diverse and inclusive spaces it was incredibly jarring, so I'm sorry for how worse it would've been for you!

I like that with Jeremy Keith auto saves any link from his site to archive.org. So even if the link itself is broken, it should be possible to find it there.

I like the idea of the site itself trying to fix it.

For some time I had my site fail to build if any broken links were found, but as I interact with more sites, and push more content daily, it's a bit difficult to do that.

Ah cool, nice to hear! Yeah I think sticking something serverless makes sense - I've gone for the route of deployed microservices just to give me some more experience with them. And hopefully more hosted services can be created if needbe!

It can also make some of it harder, too! My site is a static Hugo site, but for some of the IndieWeb stuff I either need to add client-side JS or write separate services that can run to ie send Webmentions. It definitely works, but is a bit more work as there's stuff that is and isn't static

I'd thoroughly recommend https://gatling.io/ as we're using it across both Java-based and non-Java-based APIs, and have found it pretty great.

I know we're not using nearly the power it affords, but it's very good!

Agree that some users won't want to get stuck into it - they're likely also the users who won't be writing raw HTML for their sites.

So what we're doing for them is getting Microformats2 support directly into the themes for WordPress, Jekyll, Hugo, etc, so anyone using it can benefit without necessarily doing any work!

 Reply

Reply to https://lobste.rs/s/ilv3l1/whatever_happened_semantic_web#c_pcqphf

As shared in a separate comment in the thread, there's the Microformats2 specification (see https://microformats.io) which reduces duplication seen with some of the other Semantic Web formats.

You can see an example of a parsing result at http://php.microformats.io/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.jvt.me%2Fmf2%2F2020%2F01%2F2mylg%2F which produces a standardised structure for the resulting JSON, which makes interconnectivity much simpler.

Us folks in the IndieWeb (https://indieweb.org) have been using it for some time with great benefit, but it's always great to hear others reactions too!

Re:

TLDR: Nearly everyone who wants micropub support writes their own library, endpoint, or whole cms or blog engine.

I believe part of this is because Micropub requires intimate knowledge of how your own site is set up, so unfortunately can't be written as a generic solution, because most folks won't have things set up the same way, even on ie WordPress using common IndieWeb plugins

It's still a good point that maybe we need to look at creating an out-of-the-box Micropub endpoint for some of the common tech stacks.

I used to refine things lots, but it meant spending hours on a post that took 5 minutes to read. Long posts I do still refine over time, but generally want them done at most a few days after it's finished being written.

If it's a Blogumentation post (https://www.jvt.me/posts/2017/06/25/blogumentation/ ) then I'll actively not refine it too much as a long post as the point is that it's for me in the future so if its not as readable I'll just edit it then

I work on Open Banking APIs for a UK credit card provider.

A large reason I see that the data isn't made directly available to the customer is because if the customer were to accidentally leak / lose their own data, the provider (HSBC, Barclays etc) would be liable, not you. That means lots of hefty fines.

You'd also likely be touching some PCI data, so you'd need to be cleared / set up to handle that safely (or having some way to filter it before you received it).

Also, it requires a fair bit of extra setup and the use of certificate-based authentication (MTLS + signing request objects) means that as it currently sits you'd be need one of those, which aren't cheap as they're all EV certs.

Its a shame, because the customer should get their data. But you may be able to work with intermediaries that may provide an interface for that data, who can do the hard work for you, ie https://www.openwrks.com/

I like that idea - automagically parsing the data from a URL is reasonable, and is mostly automatic but a little manual so there's the ability to correct issues (as mentioned in https://aaronparecki.com/2019/12/21/12/ )

From me it's a no - I see why some people want it, but would rather prefer they stay out of the already limited space in the commit message title, and there's a level of arguable subjectivity of what an emoji means especially as different teams, projects and cultures have views on it.

What hardware are you running on? I've found it often doesn't work "out of the box" because the hardware manufacturers don't Open Source/upstream their drivers so it can't be released as part of the core distro offering.

My Micropub endpoint has a fair bit of unit testing inside the Java project ( https://gitlab.com/jamietanna/www-api/tree/develop/www-api-web/micropub ) for common flows, but I've also found a tonne of implementation issues by integrating with real Micropub clients.

Some of it is an issue on a Micropub client, but most of it is something I've missed or assumed incorrectly.

I'm thinking to create a stubbed version ( https://gitlab.com/jamietanna/www-api/issues/26 ) that I can then use with https://micropub.rocks to ensure compliance.

Some of it is also a case of reading through the Micropub spec!

Rachel's talk 'The power of change - learning to live as a "weirdo"' was really quite amazing.

It's a difficult thing to talk about mental health, especially to those of us who aren't very close to it to understand what it's like, but Rachel knocked it out of the park with a great illustration of what autism can be like in terms of the reality of the spectrum and the many different effects it can have.

We started with a bit of humour and a funny title, but she took us through a journey of autism, ADHD, depression, and spun a really intriguing story.

There was a great mix of humour alongside this serious topic, and I love that Rachel ended with two thoughts - she realised that she didn't want to be "normal" but wanted to be authentic, and that:

no one interesting is normal

I'd urge you to see this talk if you're able to catch it again!
