In-reply-to » I noticed some unnecessary horizontal rules being rendered at the bottom of twts in the conversation view lately with yarnd's new design change. They can be seen at least when not being logged in. Not sure if it is the same experience with an active user session. I reckon there will be fork buttons then, so in that case they would be fine, indeed.

@darch Makes sense πŸ‘Œ

@mckinley@twtxt.net We probably went a bit too far? I think @lyse@lyse.isobeef.org’s point was not to have a horizontal rule when it doesn’t seem appropriate?

Oh what?!

Hmmm?

@mckinley@twtxt.net They should still work if you actually use one?

Like this? ☝️

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org @darch Can you look at this? πŸ€—

In-reply-to » Long ago the baby grew mobile enough to start getting into things, especially toilets. We installed those plastic child-proof locks all over the house. Now, it feels very strange to use a toilet that does not have a lock on it.

We never seemed to have this problem with our two kids? πŸ€”

In-reply-to » Boy, it was fricking cold with the wind today. Can't believe that just three weeks ago I was sweating like a pig. But the rain clouds were pretty nice. Only my camera struggled very much with these lighing conditions. Basically half of the images totally blurred.

@movq@www.uninformativ.de Oh! 😳 I totally missed that detail πŸ˜† Very clever πŸ‘Œ

In-reply-to » @prologic I'm taking a look at yarn.social search codebase. Just created a tiny PR to add some documentation around setup. I was thinking that I might start with "Document how to use the query language really well" since that would be a good learning exercise. It looks like maybe https://search.twtxt.net/help would be a good place to put that work. Were you wanting to put any search help text anywhere else in the UI?

Also to give you an idea… This pile of crappy ass code I whacked together on a weekend I think could be a lot more efficient πŸ˜… The Twtxt search space is really not that large to warrant this kind of resource utilisation: – I don’t mind the daily CPU spikes – But even that could be improved I think.

@brasshopper@twtxt.net So right now the code uses bleve to index documents (feeds and twts here) and is also used as the query engine. It has thing thing called MemoryNeededForSearchResult that might be useful here.

Alternatively there is another good Go library for indexing and searching called bluge that I’ve been following, it might be worthwhile looking in to…

Also note that whatever improvements you make here in the global search engine, I’d like to bring across to yarnd itself – So let’s build it like a library as well as a search engine and crawler (server) πŸ™

@brasshopper@twtxt.net Yup a /help endpoint sounds good to me πŸ‘Œ
