@Mitzi-Laszlo There is a source of confusion for recently arrived devs that is hard to navigate, especially since there is a reluctance to talk about it, and that is that the Solid client world is split (though amicably) into two camps, one being the Timbl/solid-panes camp built on rdflib.js and the other being the RubenV/ldflex/react camp built on comunica and triple pattern fragments. Some help in navigating this divide would be helpful for new devs.
Thank you Tom, I'm wondering where best to position this information, any ideas? When does this crop up? This would be helpful in understanding where to place the guidance
It's pretty fundamental so it should be placed up front. Some pointers as to where each camp is coming from and where they are going would be good. It's kind of like picking a country to emigrate to, having money for only one ticket, and trying to decide which country will do better in the long run.
Was a bit confused by the meeting time this week. I now see it was in the mornining European time? I was just about to leave to catch a train at that point.
@Mitzi-Laszlo Missed the community call as somehow the time link had said was at 7 AM 5/2 local time. I see the minutes. I will try to make the next call 5/9 to follow up.
@bblfish@shingyeung details are always up to date on https://www.w3.org/community/solid/wiki/Meetings which you will always receive an email reminder for beforehand. Understand the time changes are tricky, bit of a side effect of coordinating a global conversation. Great to see we are getting participants from Asia and New Zealand too!
@shingyeung let me know if you'd still like to present the self hosting instructions you put together and if so when would be a good moment
no, problem, I think I was even scribing last week, so I suppose I should have picked that up.
Thanks. No hurry I can wait for 5/9 call if there is room left on the agenda.
Hello everyone, I'm part of the team which is developing one of the decentralized chats. We have finished the last sprint and we would be so grateful if anyone can give us some feedback about it. You can see the github project on https://github.com/Arquisoft/dechat_es2b and the chat being run on https://arquisoft.github.io/dechat_es2b/ . We have the graphic interface version (the link above) and another CLI version which you can run following the steps indicated on github.
Maybe you should add what Access modes your app needs on your website
Oh I know, I may need to add permission to /inboxand /profile instead of just in /public
I always forget this
@acg96 Hey Andres, I’m a ux designer and I've just logged into your chat. Looks like the functionality is pretty straightforward, and at the moment I don’t know anyone i can chat to there because i’ve been inactive in the community mostly until….right…now. If you’re ever looking for ui/ux ideas/input on it feel free to reach out directly. Right off the bat I’d say it would be great to have an invite feature to pull people into the platform.
@linonetwo The "TypeError: r is null" was appearing at the beginning of the project because of nonexistent files on the POD. How did you got the error? It uses the inbox, the profile and a private folder too.
@bradbader_twitter thank you for the feedback :)
@acg96 I'm just adding a friend
@acg96 great work!
@acg96 Just a little bit of feedback on the ui; when I see it on my laptop I don't think it makes the best use of the space - did you consider making it fill the screen at all? The other comment was, it looks like your scaling the entire display down for mobile devices (phone); I think it's really important for an app like chat to scale nice for phones and then scale up into a 'gitter' type app for bigger screens?
That's the laptop view and then...
Maybe have an option of the smaller view though... because it actually feels refreshing
