Homebrew Website Club

Tantek Çelik:

welcome to homebrew website club sf - the last of the year

What I got built since last time is person tagging on my site, with POSSE to twitter and facebook

I can tag someone in a photo on my site, and some of them make it over to facebook via brid.gy http://tantek.com/2015/350/t2/seasons-greetings-homebrew-website-club

we can only map through tags of other people who have signed up for brid.gy as facebook give app specific userids

I tag people with their official external facebook URLs but even that facebook won't map through

you can tag people in any post - it's not just a mention - the person is in this photo

Kevin Marks:

I person-tag people I quote in transcripts like this, as I see them as being in the room

Tantek Çelik:

I got poster images on videos working, which I POSSE to facebook and twitter too - the poster isn't the first frame

twitter shows my video with ugly black bars, and facebook doesn't show it without javascript

I feel like I am now presenting posts better than the silos do, especially for videos

Darius got his new site up at dariusdunlap.com on Boxing Day

Dick Hardt:

what is the purpose of indieweb?

Tantek Çelik:

to post content on their own sites with as much or better quality as the silos do

as more people start doing it, and share tools for doing it it makes more sense

I've made the mobile view of my photos full-bleed on my own site like instagram, so it looks better than fb and twitter

Kyle Mahan:

I wanted to add book reviews to my site and POSSE those to goodreads.com

so to do that I added goodreads support to silo.pub so I can post to goodreads with micropub

Instead of implementing a new plugin to publish to goodreads, I just add a micropub target based on silo.pub

I want to publish a new review, so I do that here and hit publish and it is POSSEd to goodreads asynchronously

the micropub edit standard isn't stable yet so silo.pub doesn't pass it through

Tantek Çelik:

we had a resurgence of interest in "read" posts - examples of people started and finishing reading posts

Kevin Marks:

I have been adding summaries and featured images to kevinmarks.com storycards show up http://www.unmung.com/storycard?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.kevinmarks.com
