Currently Working On: Tap to Acknowledge

Tap-to-acknowledge is an upcoming feature in the next release of Reiterate

Muting and Filtering

Reiterate offers two ways to turn clips off. You can mute clips, and you can also filter them. What’s the difference, and why would you want to use one vs the other?

Identifiers and Usernames

What exactly is a username? I came across a very interesting article which goes into detail on what makes a good username.

Server Upgraded to Debian Bullseye

I’ve spent this week upgrading my server to the latest Debian release (bullseye).

Authorio 0.8.5 Released

Authorio 0.8.5 fixes bugs that were found through field testing.

Focus on Yourself

If you want to improve, you have to focus on yourself. That sounds simple, but there’s more to it than you might think.

PKCE Fix for Authorio

Authl 0.5.2 was just released, bringing support for PKCE. And that surfaced another bug in Authorio.

IndieAuth Profile Exchange In the Wild

Thanks to @fluffy, Authorio’s profile exchange is not completely useless.

Thoughts on IndieAuth Profile URLs

For Authorio 0.8.3, I made a change to the way it handles user profile URLs, and that forced me to think a little more on exactly what a profile URL is.

Authorio 0.8.4 Released

Authorio 0.8.4 has been released.

There’s no new features in this release, but some under-the-hood changes have been made to the way user profile URLs are handled.

How many clips should I have in a session?

Once you’ve recorded more than a screen’s worth of clips, it makes sense to start grouping them. One of the main ways Reiterate allows you to group clips is through sessions.

Authorio 0.8.3 Released

Authorio 0.8.3 has been released.

This release adds user profiles. In the latest spec clients can request and receive user profile data. Authorio lets you specify that data and optionally send it upon request.

Authorio 0.8.2 Released

Authorio 0.8.2 has been released.

The main new feature in this release is Local Sessions. You can enable this in the config file, and if it’s enabled you get a “Remember Me” box you can check on the authentication form. This works like any other website you can log into. Checking the box means you don’t have to type in your password for 30 days (or however long you set the session lifetime in the config).

Publishing via Bridgy

Getting Bridgy and Jekyll to work together took a little more effort than I expected.

Twitter Issues

Now that I have my IndieAuth solution working, and I can log in to various IndieWeb sites with this blog, the next step is to set up WebMention.io and Bridgy.

Authorio 0.8.0 Released

I’ve released Authorio 0.8.0 on RubyGems. This is the initial release for the package.

Authorio is the first open source project I’ve contributed to. It’s a part of the IndieWeb community which bills itself as a “people-focused alternative” to the corporate web.

Introducing: Reiterations

My name is Rat Troupe, and I play League of Legends.

In my quest to improve at the game I’ve tried many approaches. I’ve reviewed my own games, watched professional videos, paid for coaching and access to content.

I was getting a lot of tips and advice, but it occurred to me that one of the biggest obstacles to improvement was actually using this advice while you’re playing the game. It’s too easy, while you’re in the middle of a team fight, to forget everything you’ve been told and just flail about madly.

So I created Reiterate. Reiterate is a tool that lets you take all the tips and advice and skills you know you’re supposed to be working on, and force you to think about that while you’re playing the game. It’s a simple concept, but I couldn’t find anything else like it that someone had already created.

Reiterate isn’t a magic solution though. There’s plenty of facets to successful self-improvement. And that’s why I wanted to start this blog, to keep track of the ways to use Reiterate and how it can amplify your success. To be honest, there’s no shortage of self-improvement advice, on the internet or even throughout the entire history of publication. I hope there’s still territory to be explored, though.

The log line for this blog mentions “personal and software development”. I’ve covered personal development; but I’d also like to use this space for articles on software development as well. While I can explain the concept behind Reiterate in just a sentence, it’s actually a faily sophisticated app, backed by a back-end server infrastructure. I’d like to share the occasional behind-the-scenes post on how Reiterate does what it does.

Finally, this will be the official spot for Release Notes. Whenever I send out a new version of Reiterate, I’ll post the changes here.
