"Station" is a very good #gemini service ! It's a little social network application developed and hosted by Martin and dedicated to Gemini protocol. A very good evolution would be to federate several instances, not connected to the Fediverse which permits to many things not compatible with Gemini protocol. But a federation of "stations" could be very cool !
Is there a specification which blocks Gemini input to one line ? Would it be possible to have a textarea to input several lines of text (controlling 1024 max length of generated url) on 10 header ? I think that \n is url encodable ?
For some application, like martin's station, it should be fine (or maybe it would break its application 🤔 )
@bortzmeyer @adele OpenSSL-generated certs can be imported to Lagrange using the Import Identity dialog (must be in PEM .crt/.key format), or you can just copy the PEM .crt/.key files to the ~/.config/lagrange/idents directory (or equivalent for your platform) and they'll be picked up on the next launch. After that you can use them like any Lagrange-generated cert.
There's a bit more details on the Lagrange Help page (section 1.6.3).
@adele I don't think's anything in the spec prohibiting that, and in fact I've been meaning to update the text input widget to allow wrapping to multiple lines for entering long content. It just hasn't bubbled up high enough on the todo list yet...
@adele Yep that would be part of it. Probably Shift+Enter to insert a newline and plain Enter to send, so it works for single-line content as before.
@adele It seems to reproduce big tech social media dark patterns, such as a like counter. This is sufficient to keep me out of this
@adele I am still amazed by the potential of the protocol, and the creativity of the people expanding its ecosystem :) With this POC social network, or games such as Astrobotany, for instance
@adele @bortzmeyer Identities are activated based on URLs. When you joined, the identity was activated for the ".../join" URL. You need to go to the site root and activate the identity there, it'll then apply to all URLs on the site.
This UX is not the best, I'll need to work on making it a bit more user-friendly.
Have you seen there is a page for notifications ?
(you see only your notif even if you change the user in url...)
I would imagine typically a user would want it to apply either to the entire site or to a specific subdir like "astrobotany.mozz.us/app/". A dialog should be shown for making this selection.
There is something strange with identity activation.
For example, on gemini://station.martinrue.com/ my identity is active at the root. But If I go to a user profile page, identity is not marked as activated (in the sidebar) but it is well activated (I can follow/unfollow the user). So it is not clear to see if a certificate has been sent to the server.
@adele Not seeing similar problems here... What does it say in "Show Usage" on the identity's context menu?
@adele Now, when I type the log and click Send, Lagrange waits forever (with the indicator revolving) :-(
But apparently it was created: gemini://station.martinrue.com/bortzmeyer/49687cec81724c05b2c6d3264275c41b
