Acknowledgement part 4

I’m currently making adjustments to the acknowledgement feature based on beta feedback.

Acknowledgement part 3

Here is a progress report on the Acknowledgement feature, which is coming along nicely.

New Direction for Acknowledgement

Reiterate is meant to be a tool to reduce autopiloting. One of my greatest frustrations as I’ve used Reiterate is when I’ve finished a game session only to realize that I never heard Reiterate play a single clip. The lack of awareness can be so strong that it masks out the audio prompts Reiterate plays. That pretty much negates the entire point of the app.

How to Filter Bots from Your Nginx Log Files

One thing you learn when running your own webserver is just how unfriendly the internet can be. Within moments of enabling your HTTP ports, malicious bots will immediately start scanning you, looking for vulnerabilities. It’s not too hard to lock things down; you have to be careful and meticulous and always keep up to date with the current best security practices. But that still leaves one problem: the bots make a mess of your log files.

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.

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.

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.
