can one of you lovely people tell me what device this is?]

(the hardware, not the software)

@jpmens looks like a generic portable USB-C screen. I have one that looks similar from Asus but there are many vendors.

Seems like every larger open source project will have its moment of small-core vs big-core discussions.

Should the core only contain the bare minimum of essential parts and leave the rest to the ecosystem or should the core be plug and play?

One solution I prefer as a solution to both is by creating distributions that bundle the small core with a default set of modules from the ecosystem. Then one can decide to start of with a distribution or with the small core itself.

dominik,
@dominik@nona.social avatar

@voxpelli yeah, I quite like how is doing that. They have a pretty minimal default installation and a "webapp" bundle that adds basically all the bells and whistles (sometimes a bit too many, but it's not hard to remove the unneeded stuff)

It’s a Thing!

Das Fediverse tut sich schwer, das volle Potential der verschiedenen Activity-Objects auszunutzen, hauptsächlich aus Angst, sie falsch oder schlecht darzustellen und deshalb teilen die meisten großen Netzwerke leider nur Notes.

Dabei könnte es so einfach sein!

@deadsuperhero schreibt auf seinem Blog, dass er eigentlich gerne Articles veröffentlichen will, aber (hauptsächlich) durch Mastodon zu Note gezwungen wird, wenn er sicher gehen will, dass der Text vollständig dargestellt wird.

Here’s the problem, though: the biggest player in the space, Mastodon, does a poor job of supporting Article. Instead, every post Mastodon uses is instead a Note. From a semantic point of view, it might not seem like there’s a lot of difference between the two: both are effectively texts posts that can contain some formatting markup, both can hold an arbitrary amount of characters, and both can effectively be used to represent a full article.

A Content-Fallback Mechanism for the Fediverse

Ironischerweise zeigt Mastodon eine föderierte Note vollständig an, auch wenn der Text weit über die eigentlich erlaubten 500 Zeichen hinaus geht, bei einem Article wird statt dessen aber nur die kurze summary benutzt.

Seine Idee: Ein Content-Fallback Mechanismus!

Das heißt jede Aktivität, egal von welchem Typ, liefert zusätzlich zu dem spezifischen Objekt, eine standardisierte Note (content-fallback):

<span><code class="hljs language-json">{  <span class="hljs-attr">"@context"</span>:[    <span class="hljs-string">"https://www.w3.org/ns/activitystreams"</span>,    {      <span class="hljs-attr">"Hashtag"</span>:<span class="hljs-string">"as:Hashtag"</span>    }  ],  <span class="hljs-attr">"id"</span>:<span class="hljs-string">"https://wedistribute.org/2024/04/iftas-dsa-guide/"</span>,  <span class="hljs-attr">"type"</span>:<span class="hljs-string">"Article"</span>,  <span class="hljs-attr">"content-fallback"</span>: {    <span class="hljs-attr">"content"</span>:<span class="hljs-string">"IFTAS, the dedicated Trust & Safety organization ..."</span>,    <span class="hljs-attr">"mediaType"</span>:<span class="hljs-string">"text/plain"</span>,    <span class="hljs-attr">"summary"</span>:<span class="hljs-string">""</span>,    <span class="hljs-attr">"tag"</span>:[{      <span class="hljs-attr">"href"</span>:<span class="hljs-string">"https://wedistribute.org/tags/fediverse"</span>,      <span class="hljs-attr">"name"</span>:<span class="hljs-string">"#fediverse"</span>,      <span class="hljs-attr">"type"</span>:<span class="hljs-string">"Hashtag"</span>    }],    <span class="hljs-attr">"type"</span>:<span class="hljs-string">"Note"</span>,    <span class="hljs-attr">"updated"</span>:<span class="hljs-string">"2024-04-11T20:55:29Z"</span>  }}</code></span><small class="shcb-language" id="shcb-language-1"><span class="shcb-language__label">Code-Sprache:</span> <span class="shcb-language__name">JSON / JSON mit Kommentaren</span> <span class="shcb-language__paren">(</span><span class="shcb-language__slug">json</span><span class="shcb-language__paren">)</span></small>

Ich verstehe das Problem und finde die Idee generell nicht schlecht, aber eigentlich bietet ActivityPub alles Nötige schon von Haus aus! ActivityPub oder besser ActivityStreams ist so aufgebaut, dass alle Objekte von einem Art Base-Object abgeleitet werden. Das heißt Article, Note, Event oder Place, haben ein gleiches Minimal-Set an Attributen:

  • <a href="https://www.w3.org/TR/activitystreams-vocabulary/#dfn-attachment">attachment</a>
  • <a href="https://www.w3.org/TR/activitystreams-vocabulary/#dfn-attributedto">attributedTo</a>
  • <a href="https://www.w3.org/TR/activitystreams-vocabulary/#dfn-audience">audience</a>

  • <a href="https://www.w3.org/TR/activitystreams-vocabulary/#dfn-context">context</a>
  • <a href="https://www.w3.org/TR/activitystreams-vocabulary/#dfn-name">name</a>
  • <a href="https://www.w3.org/TR/activitystreams-vocabulary/#dfn-icon">icon</a>
  • <a href="https://www.w3.org/TR/activitystreams-vocabulary/#dfn-image">image</a>
  • <a href="https://www.w3.org/TR/activitystreams-vocabulary/#dfn-inreplyto">inReplyTo</a>
  • <a href="https://www.w3.org/TR/activitystreams-vocabulary/#dfn-published">published</a>
  • <a href="https://www.w3.org/TR/activitystreams-vocabulary/#dfn-replies">replies</a>
  • <a href="https://www.w3.org/TR/activitystreams-vocabulary/#dfn-summary">summary</a>
  • <a href="https://www.w3.org/TR/activitystreams-vocabulary/#dfn-tag">tag</a>
  • <a href="https://www.w3.org/TR/activitystreams-vocabulary/#dfn-updated">updated</a>
  • <a href="https://www.w3.org/TR/activitystreams-vocabulary/#dfn-url">url</a>
  • <a href="https://www.w3.org/TR/activitystreams-vocabulary/#dfn-to">to</a>
  • <a href="https://www.w3.org/TR/activitystreams-vocabulary/#dfn-bto">bto</a>
  • <a href="https://www.w3.org/TR/activitystreams-vocabulary/#dfn-cc">cc</a>
  • <a href="https://www.w3.org/TR/activitystreams-vocabulary/#dfn-bcc">bcc</a>
  • <a href="https://www.w3.org/TR/activitystreams-vocabulary/#dfn-mediatype">mediaType</a>
  • …und mehr

Und auch wenn beispielsweise Place oder Event einige spezifische Eigenschaften haben, die nicht jede Plattform „kennt“ und „versteht“, sollte es immer möglich sein, die Beschreibung (content oder summary) und den Titel (name) anzuzeigen.

Das Prinzip ist ähnlich wie, wenn nicht sogar inspiriert durch, schema.org/Thing. Auch hier basieren alle Objekte letztendlich auf einem Thing und trotz der wesentlich größeren Anzahl1 an Objekten und Attributen, können Suchmaschinen sich immer sicher sein, dass es zumindest einen name, eine description und eine url zum Anzeigen gibt.

Bevor wir über also über ein content-fallback nachdenken, sollten wir (meiner Meinung nach) erst einmal dafür sorgen, dass die vorhanden Möglichkeiten richtig genutzt werden.

If you don’t know how to swim and haven’t MASTERED making a fire, you should not be on Survivor.

    #WordPress nerds - I've a tricky problem that I can't find the answer to.

    I want to patch a single PHP file inside a 3rd party plugin.
    I can overwrite the file, and my new code works.
    But when the plugin is updated, the original file replaces my patched version.

    I've tried changing the permissions of the file to read-only, but that doesn't work.

    Is there any sensible way to make my changes permanent?

    dominik,
    @dominik@nona.social avatar

    @Edent if there is, I didn't find it, yet. I've tried with automatic patching before, that went about as well as expected. So far the best way I found was to upstream the patch and hope that the maintainer accepts it.

    Literally lost my shit today at work cos postgres and AWS wasn't cooperating and I have only 3 more days to migrate four instances, and when I raised a ticket, support just sent me a bloody FAQ page which I had already scrutinised. AAAAND despite repeated exhortations to them to, I don't know, give me SUPPORT, they have ignored me for 2 days.

    Yeah I'm glad I didn't become a software engineer.

    @pfefferle ich weiß nicht, ob es einen Bug-Report wert ist (ich konnte es auch nicht nachstellen) oder ob es vielleicht "einfach" ein seltsamer Nebeneffekt eines anderes Plugins war, aber zu dem Post hier: https://lostfocus.de/2024/02/14/232382/ hat das Plugin keinen create rausgeschickt sondern nur ein update

    Does anyone know what kind of headers one might need to send when requesting a url to get the data? I know I'm doing something wrong but no matter what, I'm always getting HTML.

    dominik,
    @dominik@nona.social avatar

    @voxpelli yeah, it's a bit weird. Same accept headers with curl and a REST Firefox plugin get different results. I guess it somehow listens to something else in the request. Just curl works fine.

    Sorry guys just tired because the Substack Platformer drama made me pretty mad for reasons. 😑 I know China has problems, but imagine if each time someone talks about American shows or just mentions America, someone comes by and tells you that America is bad and that it's citizens are brainwashed. I am sure you won't like it either. Just fed up lah and want these folks with a grudge against China and Chinese folks for reasons to leave me alone 🤣
