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.

@mckinley@twtxt.net we could make the Reply, Fork etc. look more like buttons, but right now it’s not on the top of my list either.

In-reply-to » I just typed out a message here on Yarn, undid a few things with ctrl+z, and then tried to redo something with the vi redo key combination. That means it's time to go to bed.

@mckinley@twtxt.net or add vim shortcuts to yarn🤓

@mckinley@twtxt.net yes I saw no need for them and it was the easiest way to fix it.

In Danish there are an expression called “narrestreger” which literally means “fools strokes”. I have learned from my sister, who is a visual designer, that you should just avoid using “narrestreger” since it only needed if your design is bad to begin with. You should rater use more blank-space, typography or colors to indicate division instead of lines.

@prologic@twtxt.net and @lyse@lyse.isobeef.org. Those line are already removed in the latest PR😉

In-reply-to » To help combat spam -- Should we build an invite system? 🤔

@prologic@twtxt.net is it getting to an annoying level?

I would rather see a lot of other features before.

What are the advantages to an invite system compares to just close registration and add a contact form for applying for an account?

In-reply-to » For a real feed format I would like to have a clear separation between titles and content. And more options for the content. Plaintext and HTML at least.

@mckinley@twtxt.net we already got a title field in form of (subject) – it’s just hidden here on yarn by design

I agree with @lyse@lyse.isobeef.org on this. It is outside the scope of twtxt as a microbloging protocol to start including more formel metadata fields such as titles

@prologic@twtxt.net I made a new PR (#998) that I hope will fix the issues you have pointed out:

  • Link Verification not working (due to missing modal from pico.css)
  • Lightbox not working (due to missing modal from pico.css)
  • In-reply-to now only show max 3 lines of the root post

But the “(…) pull request has changes conflicting with the target branch.”

In-reply-to » @darch There are a few minor regressions. But maybe they were intentional? The "In-Reply-To" used to limit the text to some width and use an ellipsis via CSS to cut it off a bit.

@prologic@twtxt.net Yes that is an new “feature” (not a bug™️) - I have made it to be limited to 3 lines after I made the PR.

Anything else you have found to be off/odd?

In-reply-to » Related with my current conversation, what do you think of using twtxt.txt as a format for feeds?

@eaplmx@twtxt.net I see it as a way to add feed to all sort of sites so people don’t have to relay on twitter, facebook and instragam to share their updates, but instead selfhost a twtxt.txt that people can follow in any way they see fit

In-reply-to » Guys, I have a bad news, I went through the twtxt-osphere : - I found 1289 twtxt account - among those 721 are accessible ( 712 http / 9 gemini / 0 gopher) - but only 111 account are still active in 2022 :S (107 http / 4 gemini / 0 gopher).

@tkanos@twtxt.net nice work. What are the ranking based on? Number of posts in the feed?

In-reply-to » A nice chat tonight with @prologic, @ocdtrekkie, and @darch. Some things we talked about: * Markdown isn't rendered to HTML in Atom feeds (#989) * A look at @darch's branch to replace Pico.css with Simple.css * 100 monthly active users on yarn.social * Sandstorm proxy authentication for yarnd (Allows one set of credentials across programs hosted on Sandstorm) * Sandstorm support for Tube (#26) * Future improvements to Sandstorm

@mckinley@twtxt.net thank for the notes.

The new Simple.css based theme is online now at neotxt.dk thanks to the help of @prologic@twtxt.net and there is a PR pending now too.

In-reply-to » I have been hacking away on replacing the PicoCSS with Simple.css, since it offer a much manageable set of color variables that can ease the work of making your own team a whole lot.

@tkanos@twtxt.net the orange is the default dark mode from simplecss.org - you can also find it inside 03-colours.css in the branch repo. I’m on my phone so can’t pull out the hex code right now, but now you know where to look;)

In-reply-to » Please don't test it for now BUT just to announce that the version 0.1.0 alpha (not yet tested) of my future twtxt client twx has been pushed.

@eaplmx@twtxt.net they are only visible in my custom theme on neotxt.dk, but if you hover the icons on twtxt.net you should see the times as well

In-reply-to » @tkanos My question goes more in if someone replies to me, and I don't follow them, how can I know they is trying to do it?

@eaplmx@twtxt.net you can’t know unless you follow them allready.

But I have been brewing on an idea to let you inform someone when you start to follow them, if they are open for such notifications. It could either be via webmetions or simply an option in the UI to email them if they have given disclose that in their twtxt.txt. There is also an option in the original spec to see who follows you in your webservers logfiles

@tkanos@twtxt.net like this? Seem we are missing the reply to treads that you have started, but where people have not necessary mentioned you in - great idea to have that too:)

In-reply-to » @ocdtrekkie To be honest I was actually joking. My wiki most definitely is half baked 😂 The thing is I've built very complex and elaborate wiki engines (wikis as we call them) back in the day, when PHP was still cool 😅 -- This time however I didn't really feel like building out a full-fledged wiki. Maybe I should? Would anyone use it? What would the minimum feature-set be? Would @darch be interesting in doing up a nice SimpleCSS theme? I dunno 🤷‍♂️ OTOH I actually find HedgeDoc to be "not a bad little personal wiki" of sorts. It's not really a wiki per se as I don't do any "document linking" or such (I could I guess). But I tend to write a lot of personal, company and project docs there now... So 🤷‍♂️ Anyway, if anyone is actually interested in seeing more of these tiny little self-hosted aps grow, please either a) contribute or b) sponsor my on Github so I can pay other people to do the work for me 😅 (my time is already overloaded)

@prologic@twtxt.net yeah im up for that, but make sure to metion my current profile at neotxt.dk, snot the old one at twtxt.dk😉
