Quarantine, and being home with my parents, made me realize some things that some people, unfortunately, don’t experience. I want to get back home after classes to find the people that were strangers to me two years ago; I want to go wash my clothes just to find out the washing machine is being used; I want to cook my dinner just to find out someone else’s already using the oven; I want to go shower just to find out someone’s using the bathroom; I want insert list of things we usually complain about.
Thought about sharing this if anyone’s interested: https://ipfspinningsummit.com/
You’ve made good points: if I want to show something, I’ll always need to fetch it. I’m actually using XRay for it right now which is really straightforward to use. However, as simple as it might be, I’m not happy with the code of my backend API. Some places feel more complex than they should be. I’ll need to revisit it soon.
Thanks for letting me know your opinion on this. I’ll probably be keeping it as it is right now.
Didn’t expect it to be that useful. I’ll be keeping it then. And thanks for reading my blog :D
Interesting… we’re having most classes via Zoom. Some via Discord and some are just pre-recorded videos to check out.
Shower thought: do you think the boxes with context about replies, likes and reposts are needed? I’m trying to reduce the complexity and cut edges that I don’t think are needed. I could just re-style it in a way to show that it is a like or repost with a link without the “entire” information - which, most of the times, is not the entire stuff because I set a maximum length.
If you’re reading this, what’s your opinion? Is it really required? Do you find it useful? Or just pretty?
@neptzoo thank you so much! I will work on improving and getting to more irregular figures. I really want to do so but not much confident. Need to try it out.
The IndieWeb own-your-data-thing can be complicated sometimes. Since there are no full fledged systems that allow us to interact with other social media without having to implement it ourselves, sometimes we get to the point where we feel kind of limited. I’m trying not to use other services or, if I do, I’m just POSSE’ing to them. Sometimes it’s hard because there are communities that are more connected on some social media (e.g., Twitter) and the bridge is not always perfect.
Edit: I just hope someday we can have a federated social network that can easily interact with all others…
