Thanks for your updates Marty, I’ll get them into the app.Β  I just wanted to touch on one thing you wrote in your post, and that’s:

Thanks for taking a look at the changes! And thanks for the response!

While I agree that I could wrap the entries on my archive page in an h-feed, I disagree that every collection of h-entry “is a feed”.

The microformats2 spec for h-feed is still a draft and open to change. Even so, it states that h-feed is “for publishing a stream or feed”. The use cases listed there, and on indieweb.org/h-feed specifically discuss feeds and feed readers subscribing to content.

I made the specific choice not to make the archive pages into a feed, because I don’t want to encourage folks to subscribe to something only to find that it becomes static over time.

In my thinking, an microformats2-capable crawler should be capable of handling a collection of h-entry in a page whether or not they are wrapped in an h-feed. There was some brief discussion about it today in the #indieweb-dev chat.

Thanks to Ruxton for making available the source to the IndieWeb Best Nine, here are my “Best 9 Photos of 2019”.

The app walks your personal website, looking for photo posts, then makes a collage of the best nine. “Best” is determined by most IndieWeb likes or replies.

I initially tried to use the online version, but ran into some issues, so I grabbed the source and started tweaking it to handle some quirks of my site.

  • My monthly archives contain next/prev links that can be used to crawl my whole archive, but I don’t consider e.g. /2019/01/ to be a “feed”, so it’s just a collection of h-entry items. I updated the microformats2 crawler to support pages that are a collection of h-entry without a containing h-feed.
  • Counted replies marked up as ‘comment’ rather than ‘reply’.
  • Changed the resulting image size to fit more with my site’s layout.
  • Filtered out comments from myself, as well as automated comments on my checkins from Swarm via OwnYourSwarm.
  • Added cropping to make non-square images square.
  • Added some debugging to spit out my posts and their interaction counts.

Here are the links to the individual top 9 photo posts!

You can find my modified version of indieweb-bestnine on GitHub!

IndieWeb NYC Meetup 2020-01-25 Wrap-Up

IndieWeb NYC's meetup for January 2020 met at Think Coffee on Mercer St on January 25th around 2pm.

Here are some notes from the meeting!

dmitri.shuralyov.com β€” Made even more progress on integrating IndieAuth into his site! In addition to letting people log in to his site with GitHub profile URLs (github.com/username), he has finished changes to allow folks to log into his site with their own URLs via IndieAuth. Along the way he learned a lot about and contributed to the IndieAuth spec! He wrapped up and deployed it at this meetup!

martymcgui.re β€” Since last time, create a very minimal indieweb.nyc site for folks that want to track IndieWeb events in NYC. This was just a few week's ahead of Aaron Parecki's launch of events.indieweb.org. πŸ˜‚ Marty plans to continue updating indieweb.nyc but now has the events there link to events.indieweb.org.

Other topics of discussion

Left-to-right: martymcgui.re, dmitri.shuralyov.com

Thanks to all who came out! We will see you all again in February! Keep an eye on indieweb.nyc for the exact date, time, and location! You can subscribe to the calendar to receive automatic updates (webcal link)!

Are you a member of the πŸ•ΈπŸ’ IndieWeb Webring? Today I added a page for Terms of Use and Frequently Asked Questions!

The webring has mostly been churning along on its own, with a few folks adding themselves here and there. A couple of times folks have shown up in IndieWeb chat to let me know about sites that break the webring, or when they ran into other issues.

Hopefully this page answers some of the more common things that come up. The TL;DR version? The webring is more proof-of-concept than robust-community-service. I’ll do my best, but can’t make any promises! πŸ˜…

If you have any questions that aren’t addressed there, please let me know!
