In reply to @jaywink:federator.dev So it doesnt scrub YouTube players?
so all extra html/js/css is cleaned out for "non-trusted" users, ie normally all but site owner. this is done for security reasons, otherwise anyone could add trackers and malware scripts into their posts. if you install your own site, you'll be able to set yourself as "trusted" via the admin, which allows you to add any html/js/css at will to your posts.
of course over federation, other instances will clean those, but your own homepage when visited should render any iframe etc properly then.
In reply to @unklebonehead:matrix.org if you mean the player that comes up when you post a link, then it's just an OEmbed added by Socialhome itself. it's trusted since socialhome generates the html from youtube. there are quite a few trusted oembed providers, socialhome trusts anything in https://oembed.com/providers.json - for example spotify urls will generate a player as well
So it doesnt scrub YouTube players?
|22:08:21||jaywink||some people don't like the oembed stuff so likely socialhome users will be able to disable rendering those for themselves at some point|
|22:09:20||unklebonehead||Ahh, I see. So thats why a spotify player shows up when I post a link to my episode. Makes sense.|
In reply to @unklebonehead:matrix.org yes, definitely did! shout out coming once i get to it :D thanks again for mentioning socialhome, respect! but also enjoyed the two last podcast in general, good thoughts in the last one re open source.
Hopefully you're enjoying it!
|22:11:13||unklebonehead||Thank you. I've been in the open source community since 2010 and always felt like I needed to pull my weight. So I'm really pushing with the only things I know how to do. Talk and test and have fun, lol.|
|22:11:34||jaywink||those things are very important 👍️ |
|22:14:00||unklebonehead||I see we can upload media. Is there some docs on size and type somewhere? Or some docs from a "users' perspective and not just an admins? I found those.|
|22:15:58||jaywink|| unfortunately there isn't much docs for users. currently the create page has |
You can upload images using the camera icon or by dragging them to the text area. Valid file types: png/jpg/svg/gif. re media uploads. good question re max size 🤔
|22:17:18||jaywink||looks like it's set to 20MB|
|22:17:49||jaywink||ideally upload size would be unlimited (depending on web server config) but socialhome would resize images to a certain maximum|
|22:18:06||jaywink||to avoid people uploading 200mb gifs and destroying people mobile data :P |
|22:18:43||jaywink||of course gifs can't be resized 🤔 but anyway, something|
|22:19:30||unklebonehead||If someone was to oh, I dont know, maybe write some docs for the user would you want them in markdown?|
|22:20:44||jaywink||oo, that would be nice :) Ideally they would be in the UI, but if someone wrote markdown docs, someone else could always sync them as a page in socialhome under a "help" menu or something? |
|22:21:18||jaywink||there is https://socialhome.readthedocs.io/ but it's really meant more for admins/developers|
|22:22:08||jaywink||of course user docs could be there too, then it would be RST or markdown|
|22:22:12||unklebonehead||Well I may know a guy who knows a guy ;-)|
|22:22:19||jaywink||as long as there is a link from socialhome UI|
In reply to @jaywink:federator.dev Those are the ones I found,
there is https://socialhome.readthedocs.io/ but it's really meant more for admins/developers
|22:24:45||unklebonehead||Might have to give me till the weekend. I do 12 -14 hr days at the day job, lol. Driving sucks.|
|22:25:26||jaywink||hugely appreciated if you end up submitting something, no rush :) |
|22:26:09||unklebonehead||I will submit something. Just may take me a minute.|
|22:44:06||unklebonehead||Ok gotta ask. Why is My Profile listed under the streams as well as having a button to go right to my profile?|
|21 Jan 2020|
|08:50:52||jaywink|| unklebonehead: so the "My Profile" link (which I'm considering making the persons profile icon or name?) goes to the Pinned stream, the "Streams -> My content" goes to the "all content" stream. If the user does not have pinned content, those will of course be the same. Good point, probably the "my content" stream link could be abolished since you can get to it anyway from your profile? 🤔 |

|09:52:27||unklebonehead|| That makes sense. Just wondering cause from a user's perspective it seems redundant on the surface. |
