Fired up!

Finally got around procuring a pi3 and setup the Nextcloud Box! Getting this up and running was super fun and pretty straight forward. The OS Image that was delivered with the box was built for the pi2. So I had to format the drive with Gparted and flashed the pi3 image with Etcher (One nifty piece…

Debugging and feeds

Realized today that a code fix that I had implemented sometime back, inadvertently introduced a minor bug in my workflow. Will have to get around fixing this sometime later this week. On another note, I decided to temporarily suspend my self-hosted freshRSS installation and moved my feeds to The Old Reader. Currently I don’t see…

Philip, I dynamically add the ‘Liked:’ and ‘Replied to:’ phrase to the title of the post using some crude code in my back-end. Essentially, I use a couple of workflows to fetch the link/article details and then add the markup et al using a custom functions in my wp install. Would be more than happy…

Thanks for setting this up, Chris! Some interesting plugins out there on the WP front. in reply to: Indieweb for Journalism I’ve been meaning to do it for quite a while, but I’ve finally started a stub in the Indieweb wiki for the topic . There is a rapidly growing group of writers and journalists…

Squashing the bug

Squashed a minor bug in my code for ‘favorite’ posts. The post wasn’t getting marked up with Microformats when the content (response) was blank. The way it’s currently setup, I have just one workflow for all ‘types’ of post (podcast, reply, like, repost, bookmark, read etc.) and looks like I missed a logic flow that…

Workflow logic

While responding to one of Tantek’s post today I realized I had to tweak my publishing workflow to pick ‘the’ link I was responding to. Should possibly consider using Colin’s Dom method to fetch article meta…Srikanth Perinkulam

Wow, didn’t realize this was 12 years in the making! Hats off for all the efforts! in reply to: This year: active community members are blogging on 🎂 #microformats.org turned 12 today! This year: active community members are blogging on microformats.org Srikanth Perinkulam

Webactions

Testing out a very primitive form of webactions. If the code works the way it runs in my mind, twitter specific response buttons should show up below this text! Need to spend more time later to add markup for indie-action. Srikanth Perinkulam like reply repost

webmentions

Srikanth Perinkulam Need to figure out why certain #webmentions from my site are being sent as anonymous. Adding that to my ever expanding list of to-do’s. Since I started tweaking my portal and started getting deeper into the code, there’s been a constant fire in my brain to further tweak and tinker with things. This…

Independence

As planned a few days back, I rewrote some back-end code to minimize the dependency on the workflow app and better integrate with direct desktop publishing. But for a  few isolated kinks, this should be set. This should now give me more flexibility to post from indie publishing platforms and set the stage for other enhancements.

Tweaks and squeaks

Strongly considering setting up an updated workflow to publish from my mobile device. Currently chunk of the processing is handled by and within the ‘workflow’ app. Should probably move those controls from the app over to a custom function for better flexibility. This long weekend should be a good timeframe to get the wheels rolling.…

Response to Colin’s post

I really like your ‘how-to’ getting plugged posts, Colin! Always something to glean! Most of the improvisations I make on my site have been pretty crude – I dice the meat in an mu-plugin (essentially a custom functions file) and leave it at that. I really need to work on better documenting or standardizing my…

Facepiles

Building on yesterday’s work, I went ahead and setup some code to better display post responses. This website now supports facepiles! There’s a bit of work left in terms of design and visual appeal but I guess most part of the job is done!

Or, shall we?

Spent sometime today troubleshooting two pesky issues. Having switched to a new theme I realized my publishing workflow wasn’t fetching comments from Instagram posts. The Dsgnwrks plugin was fetching the images fine.  But since I’d missed adding the syndication link for brid.gy to work its magic, the comments were not being back fed. This should be…
