cc’ing my new persona on my new pod: @email@example.com please go and follow me there from now on :)
@firstname.lastname@example.org i’m starting to see more post from twtxt.net on neotxt.dk now, but they are still lacking their avatars and Following/Followers also not working yet.
It is just a matter of waiting for
yarnd to fetch and catch everything?
@email@example.com i do follow you on neotxt.dk:
But yours and other twtxt.net’eres profiles does not look up to date:
@firstname.lastname@example.org I should follow you and most other active feeds from twtxt.net. I used the
/import feature to migrating my feeds to the new pod. Adding you and other under
/feeds gives this error:
@email@example.com do you mean “Refresh Cache” ?
or did we maybe mess up in the setup somewhere, so there now is a name conflict, because we forgot to change something in swarm-stack that i pulled down to my VPS
Hmm there seem to be especially an problem with feeds from
twtxt.net, since feeds from other servers seem to be updated faster. So, @firstname.lastname@example.org do you maybe need to whitelist my new pod somewhere at your end?

Big thanks to @email@example.com and @firstname.lastname@example.org for patiently guiding me setting up DNS, VPS and Docker over several hours today🙏 Okay Bye 👋
You are aware that it’s the 1st of April today😉
With twtxt/yarn of of the core idea is that you do not need to block sh!t, you just simply do not follow it in the first place
@email@example.com yeah, god ideas using names of plants and flowers (btw this is sørenpeter’s account on twtxt;)
Nice work @firstname.lastname@example.org you can also use CSS color names like
tomato instead of the hexcodes

Idea for how to implement quoting/re-posting: https://www.smashingmagazine.com/2022/03/html-attributes-you-never-use/#the-cite-attribute-for-the-blockquote-and-q-elements
@email@example.com please make this

@firstname.lastname@example.org Here is my list of event tools:
Why do we need to build chat into yarn? Can’t you just run a matrix server and yarn pod on the same domain and be done with it?
[Matrix]homeserver is now working (no changes, just some issue with key validation and caching) 🥳 I can be reached at
@james:mills.io👌 -- Still unsure of
[Matrix]in the first place, but I will give credit where credit is due. At least it was orders of magnitude simpler to stand up than any XMPP/Jabber "thingy", clients "just worked"™ for it and (after some mishaps) Federation works too. I also have to recognize that it also doesn't require my to poke dozens of random ports and holes through my firewall for it to work. 👌 #Matrix
I also just got plugged into the matrix as
@email@example.com I don’t know about
dsarch 😉 but I guess this is the link you are looking for https://ar.al/2022/02/16/decentralisation-begins-at-decentring-yourself/
This guys are making some really cool tools - especially I want to use his crabmail to replaces various groups on Facebook, but I might want images support
I did see you reply, but I have noting to add. I know how twtxt works and to some extend also yarn, so no need to explain the obvious 😉
@firstname.lastname@example.org Nice, looking forward to taking it for a spin soon
@email@example.com will you whitelist images from
@firstname.lastname@example.org by offline-first I mean that you can use the client locally on the phone without an account on a yarn pod, similar to how the original twtxt client works. If this is the case how will it post/upload to a self-hosted twtxt.txt-file?
@email@example.com that sounds interesting. Is you client offline first?
@firstname.lastname@example.org any change to make this feed render the video inline in the yarn UI ?
I tried to adding the atom-feed (https://thecodinglove.com/atom) instead of RSS, but twtxtfeed tells me “Feed already exists” - so maybe it can render the gifs/videos?
Did reply now. But I would be up for discussing these more in depth on a video call sometime
@email@example.com I know what you are talking about😊 but the idea with pinned posts is to have some info at the top of you timeline/profile page and that can just as well be done with the description field. Also how would a pinned post look in the twtxt.txt file or will it be pod-only feature?
@firstname.lastname@example.org fair enough. I guess I just don’t really see the need for this feature for where we are right now. I rather have search, filters and lists that pinned posts (but I have also expressed that before ;)
Why not just add multiline markdown support for the description field and let peopl use that instead?!
@email@example.com using something like Gath for the event pages and RSPV handling makes a lot of sense. Gaths email model makes it easy for anyone to sign up.
Then we just add some event UI features to yarn like:
They, small-tech.org, were hosting a live stream yesterday where I asked Aral if he know about twtxt and yarn.social. He did not, but he does now was his answer😉
On the notes of #indieweb and #platformsocialism this guys talk on “Decentralisation begins at decentring yourself” really nails a lot of what we are doing here with twtxt/yarn: the why and the how, also how to make sure it is financially sustainable: https://ar.al/2022/02/16/decentralisation-begins-at-decentring-yourself/
We need to start a conversation with small-tech.org and see if twtxt/yarn/etc. could be part of what they are creating
There are already support for masondon and Friendica, so why not twtxt
Having a twtxt feed from a service like Gath would be a nice addition to get notified about events in your timeline. I’m sure that would be possible to build and add to gath
iCal feed/bot thingy
Just keep an eye on: https://events.indieweb.org/
Would love to see some yarn support for events :D Here are some tools for inspiration:
@firstname.lastname@example.org yes I have had smilar ideas where you can theme your post. I images an CSS class for each user that will the take the hex-colors of their liking.
@email@example.com so it wil be a bot for each city in the world?
Also for inspiration: https://twitter.com/emojiweatherdk and https://twitter.com/EmojiWeatherUK (witch i will just add to feeds.twtxt.net)
I know, but by I have a 9 till 4 job that I need to attend to.
Great idea to connect with the indeiewb folks. I will be sleeping at that time (3 in the morning in my timezone) but looking forward to hear about it afterwards
Tonight (@18:00 CET) there is a online presentation of a new book on socialist social media that I think would be of interest for waht we are doing here with text/yarn
Best news in a long time
