Recent twts from prologic

I recently learned that our Australian Liberal National Party, spent 10’s of thousands of dollars on a campaign involving flyers posted around the suburbs (localities) of our local Greens federal member, Elizabeth Watson Brown. Not only was the material produced by the LNP party, distributed and paid for by the LNP party, full of lies, but they had the audacity to make the “flyers” appear as though they were from the Greens themselves! 🤦‍♂️ wtf?! #Politics #Sucks

I like this quote. I also like a new term I’ve learned recently called “Complexity Budget”.

Good quote to remember and use in your engineering career 👌

In-reply-to » Something odd I have been noticing. Occasionally, when I come to twtxt.net on mobile, the keyboard comes up but there is nothing to type. There is some code left behind from the old onfocus that’s causing this, I gather.

Should be fixed now.

In-reply-to » @bender Well it was good to talk to you briefly! 😍 I'm a gonna have to hit the hay though, It's 1.30am here now 🤣 I guess it was just you/me, but it was an interesting discussion on how we might solve for edits across the Twtxt/yarn ecosystem 🤞

@bender Haha 🤣

That’s a bit better now… But do we want the textarea focused when you toggle the postbox open? 🤔

Well we’re still rebuilding… Give it a few mins 🤣

@bender I can see in the templates that autofocus="true" has always been the case (the template for the postbox has conditional logic) for Timeline, Discover and Mention views. There are like one or two views where it is set to false. So hmmm I’m not sure wtf I was thinking back then 🤔 How should it behave?

@bender I noticed that too. But I couldn’t remember whether that was a preexisting behavior or not. So hmmmm

In-reply-to » @bender Nothing that isn't already a known side effect. Really it is up to clients to figure this out and have storage or caching mechanisms that can cope with diverging threads.

@bender This is true! (as we spoke!) It’s okay though, I think we’ll eventually solve this as it becomes a thing that annoys us too much 🤣 I like your idea of having some optional, but recommended of handling edits. Like having something like (#d4acmcq was:zllu75a) just for an example. Extending the Subject Extension to support (#hash [was:<hash>])? 🤔

@bender Sounds good 👌

In-reply-to » @prologic what is the side effect of this for others not using Yarn? Right now conversations break upon editing, wouldn’t this potentially cause more havoc? Wouldn’t the specification need to be extended somehow to force a refresh of any edited twtxt?

@bender Let’s discuss on the call later today 👌

Just added support for deleting and editing arbitrary Twt(s) at anypoint in your timeline. Some things to note:

  • I’m not really that happy with the code between PostHandler() and DeleteTwtHandler() anymore 😢 It really needs some major refactoring, and better tests.
  • This only works for users (for now), no support for Persona(s) / Feeds sorry.

One side-effect I’ve noticed (which was always the case); an Edited Twt whilst preserves the original timestamp, gets appended to your feed at the bottom of the file. This is counter intuitive when you think about editing text files with a text editor, but it does make sense in the way yarnd treats feeds as append-only (I had just forgotten). I’m not doing anything about this though.
