@manton yeah I’m excited by this pattern. It means that Twitter or Mastodon clients can be the source...but the person gets their own customized display / domain and ability to edit ;)
There’s a potential for a Masto -> Git -> JSON Feed -> Micro.blog path in the short term.
Mid term, I’d like to make it a Micropub gateway.
@dandycat haha! I did think about getting more!
But it’s close by so an excellent lure to go out on a longer walk and find a bench to sit and eat at. With pastry crumb shrapnel going everywhere for the crows and robins to fight over!
@w4rner two other platforms! Probably at least one with Big Blue Button, one with my friends at Soapbox, and maybe Jam or Speakeasy.
@w4rner it will literally be me spamming you! Other than notification emails that Luma auto sends ;)
I’ll probably do 2 more on different tools over the next little while.
@ohBananaJoe yep ;) I’m a bilingual German speaker, had a couple of people point this out!
@Alligator awesome! Ping me if you do more of a write up and also with any cool open source tools you end up using.
@manton the issue I ran into is that you don’t seem to have all the files needed to test locally. Eg what runs the photo page, archive page etc
Having a repo that out of the box runs locally with Hugo would be really helpful. I can help test, but I’m stuck right now.
@w4rner yup! The audio pieces at a basic level are here today. UX and the social graph and moderation are all the hard bits.
Please share your experiences when you get it!
@mariovillalobos great! It’s definitely well done as digital paper in my brief experience so far.
@paulrobertlloyd which is why I’d love to promote a pattern of people looking at data licensing from day 1 AND to show how Micropub checkin could enable a world of clients interoperating.
We need to talk about these issues and showcase alternatives.
@w4rner exactly! I think we can do a lot more on patterns and semantics. We’re a little stuck in the early enthusiasts tech stack discussion.
@w4rner so, what is a pattern we can easily explain and that encourages good patterns. The
/username to me promotes centralized server patterns.
My friend Blaine advocates that “Jesus of Nazareth” is the common baked in pattern that everyone understands.
@jayeless thanks for this! I’m slowly customizing my theme. Need to bug someone about getting all the default Hugo files Mb uses so I can test it locally.
@manton yep it’s been working great, thank you!
Just doing 10 or 20 at a time, and then refreshing MarsEdit and doing any tweaks.
Main slow down is nostalgia from looking through old photos!
@hbowie yeah, pretty great! I just did this short little micro post, I have notes elsewhere where I quoted and highlighted basically every paragraph. Very well written, and even the design when reading on your phone is great.
@jayeless it is! I think we think of search engines as being big and complex, but I suspect we’re going to see more of them, and for more custom use cases.
I’m happy to help document.
@help it looks like LinkedIn posts are truncated, maybe even at 280 characters. I believe their posts are up to 1300 characters. Any plans to change that?
@Eric\_US I love NameCheap for domain registration, but their add on services are not very good.
@www.zylstra.org yeah I start worrying about functionality on top of Markdown files being enclosed. The personal / private use only makes it less risky. More experiments to come!
