Homebrew Website Club

Tantek Çelik:

welcome to Homebrew Website Club Meetup SF at Mozilla - it's every 2 weeks

we just completed Indiewebcamp Edinburgh - lots of people got their sites more functional

we just had the first Homebrew Website Club earlier in Göteborg, Sweden https://jeena.net/notes/386

Ben Werdmüller:

I got 2 things done today - after a very public round of user testing I fixed a bug in Known with IndieAuth

on my site I can now bookmark podcast episodes on my own website - now it will pick the mp3 and create a player

andi galpern:

what about soundcloud? Will that work

Ben Werdmüller:

it hotlinks soundcloud but doesn't download it - copying the file doesn't happen but it could

Kevin Marks:

I really want to be able to link to episodes of podcasts I do it now on twitter, but it doesn;t work well

Ben Werdmüller:

new version of Known 0.8 - new interface, better handling of non-latin characters, being able to build new things

people have been building interesting plugins - you can now syndicate to IRC from Known which I hadn't expected

we are making it work for institutions where the individual profiles are aggregated into a central space for reading

micropub and other indieweb support is on by default in Known 0.8, so publishing to Known is easier

andi galpern:

come to UX Night and get feedback on August 13th

K.M. Gallagher:

I am a sysadmin for freedom of the Press, working on whistleblowing and press freedom; I need to set up my own site

mu domain name would be cointel.pro

I don't liek the idea of being dependent on 3rd parties, so the indieweb principles fite

Kathy Ems:

I am an aspiring javascript developer; I have an app idea - I have built the uint tests, but not the front-end yet

my other pet project is friendlyglutenfreefoods.com on wordpress - I want to make that my own site

i want to add my own recipe cards and features, which is why I want my own site too


I'm interning on product design at salesforce this summer

I went all monchromatic last time I redesigned my site, but now I want to use colour theory instead

I'm improving my javascript - been learning React and working in Meteor at the moment t

Katie Faust:

I don't have a website but I'm planning to build one for my portfolio

Tantek Çelik:

there are event aggregators like http://calagator.org/ and lanyrd.com - we can look at feeding indieweb events

Katie J:

I have my own website now at http://www.katiejohnson.me/whatimthinking.html and want to start using noterlive

Kevin Marks:

I have made hovercards work on my site, but I need to improve the information layout of them: http://www.kevinmarks.com/hwc2015-07-15.html

Ben Werdmüller:

2 more things about Known 0.8 - you can install it in subdirectories and it works with SQLite now

and we added Postgres support thanks to the magic of opensource which helps with heroku and sandstorm

Suw :

securing wordpress is a continual nightmare for me
