Homebrew Website Club

Tantek Çelik:

welcome to the 2 year anniversary of Homebrew Website Club

Ben Werdmüller:

this is withknown.com as you have seen it before - but this has a new tab called community

community has content from everyone's domain on campus, it obeys permissions

people at an institution are automatically subscribed to the personal domains of everyone in the community

this is decentralised aggregation with a search engine on campus - there is an institutional aggregator

there is also a public portal of all public posts and a directory of users

we are going to build the community tab into every known site so I can follow you, even though I use woodwind

It's all indieweb under the hood, but it has a bit of a search engine for each community

we will get all the institutional search engines to speak to each other as hubs

we heard "I don't care about owning my website, but I want to own my data and find my friends"

Tantek Çelik:

another thing we have got working recently is the idea of person tagging not just to our sites but to silos

we had person-tagging between indieweb sites, now we have Ryan and Kyle to demo

Ryan Barrett:

Ben we're going to tag you, so check your facebook notifications

SWAT0 is a test of interactions across services tagging photos

I took a picture of the crowd, I'm going to tag ben in it on my own site, and syndciating to facebook too

here's my post on my site https://snarfed.org/2015-11-18_16147 and here it is on facebook https://www.facebook.com/1407574399567467/posts/1520984081559831

Kyle Mahan:

I added person tagging on posts on my site too - here's a pic of ben https://kylewm.com/2015/11/ben-demoing-known-at-homebrew-website-club

I can then POSSE to flickr with brid.gy publish and it puts in the person tag https://www.flickr.com/photos/kindofblue115/23116567772/in/dateposted/

Ryan Barrett:

from my site I post https://snarfed.org/2015-11-18_hwc_2 and POSSE to https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10101978203975173&set=a.10101398400286413.1073741826.212038&type=3

kyle commented on his site, ben commented in facebook and they got sent back to me

I wanted to say thank you to tantek, kevin Kyle, aaron and ben - so I made you plaques

Ben Werdmüller:

you mentioned Known, but Kyle and Ryan are running brid.gy which we all use every day

Brid.gy by Kyle and Ryan is the lifeblood of this community

Tantek Çelik:

Brid.gy's github discussions are some of the most polite humane and considered in open source

Kevin Marks:

demo of hovercards dynamically built rather than statically

Ryan Barrett:

on brid.gy we have 2500 users and have handled 2.5 million events

we send webmentions, but if you don't have webmentions we will send them to your blog as comments

we now support flickr too - likes and comments come bak to your site, and also publish with person tags

we looked for more stuff to send back to your site - we now send links from twitter as well

we also have pagination and retry for webmentions on your site

for every kind of thing on facebook there are 5 or 10 urls, we handle all of those now

we pay attention to semantics more carefully now about what is a like and what is a mention

we are also telling the differnence between syndicatiion and reposting

andi galpern:

my site is andigalpern.com and https://cascadesf.com -we get a lot of traction wiht person-tagged photos

what I want to do is team up with a dev and upload to one place and have it create albums on facebook and my site

So this would be a good project for indiewebcamp in december

I am keen to explore new UI for galleries

Tantek Çelik:

indiewebcamp SF is here at Mozilla SF on December 3rd - tell your friends

here's the facebook copy of the photo that ryan posted on FBV, and I can tag kyle in it -will that go back to ryan's post?

Ryan Barrett:

we have a issue for this, we're probably going to get it working this weekend.

have we designed co-ordinates yet?

Tantek Çelik:

we have a draft with the area tag, but we couldn't get it working with micropub

Ryan Barrett:

facebook can tell you who tagged the person in the api, but flickr can't tell you who

Darius Dunlap:

on my site this looks very different - I can style it

Kyle Mahan:

getting the tense of verbs right matters here

Ryan Barrett:

one of the great things about indieweb si that we each choose how to present these on our sites and can try other ways

Tantek Çelik:

I improved my photo posts - they automatically POSSE to both facebook and twitter using brid.gy

I think my version looks nicer than twitter's here and both twitter and facebook have the emoji combining wrong

I got implied linked image syntax - I auto embed an image URL - if the next thing is another URL I link the image to it

it bugged me that on other sites the url was showing up, and this now looks better

Philip G:

I am planning our wedding, and we want to accept RSVPs through our website - so I embedded a google form

I made the decorative images on the wedding invitation respond to the width of the site

Benjamin Goering:

my site bengo.is down at the moment.

I work at livefyre, and I have been working to make our comments more indie friendly by having an OAuth 2 api

I have implemented OpenID Connect login for Livefyre so I can auth against this

all the comments I have left are locked in to our site - next quarter I want to add comment api hooks

Darius Dunlap:

I'm going to redesign my square peg foundation site and want to bring in indieweb styles

Kevin Marks:

Emoji reactions are very big on twitter: in the billions, so it is worth us understanding them http://www.kevinmarks.com/notinourstars.html

Tantek Çelik:

I am also working on adding person tagging to my site and want to type them in as plaintext

I want this to work on twitter names and indie domains

TV news will cite as facebook/[username] and @[username] for twitter

In indiewebcamp.com/person-tag I took the TV version and put a # in front to tag them eg #@t #tantek.com
