Note 20200406T220357+0000:

Notes require no titles. I will need to hack on the urls some bit. Don't like all the namespace stuff anyways. But @dokuwiki may have become one of the easiest solutions I have found for long and short form writing Tweet by Me

Update on IndieWeb Wiki

An update on how I am adding a wiki to my life stack and my successes and failures in adding #IndieWeb building blocks

So I spent much of the day hacking on the wiki rather than getting everything in place for long form writing. I tried a few Doku Wiki templates and decided to stick with the default. This provides the cleanest path forward. Many of the templates introduced unecessary complexity that made hacking on the project hard.

I kind of have a rule. If I have trouble using HTML elements or applying CSS rules and selectors I walk away. You may have built something cool but it ain't simple enough for me. The first theme I tried used Jquery and panes for layout. I walked away. The second theme, Mateiral I like, but I had trouble getting webmentions to display. Though I didn't add the javascript and css files directly to the theme. That might have did the trick, I amy go paly again.

The default Dokuwiki template also seems to have the most potential to see updates. Judging by forum and IRC activity the community is small. My kind of place.

I do want to figure out how to fix the urls to my liking.

The other thing I had to add a plugin to get the dt-published for microformats. I am not including the built in doc info, pulling in there would mean moving my h* somewhere else.

Making an IndieWeb Wiki

This weekend I have been fooling around with a wiki. I used to have a massive wiki on wikispaces. It had hundreds of members and over 700 book reviews of children's literature.

Then wikispaces folded. The export tools provided, well would have been easier to remove nails with a banana. I have the download, somehwere.

So I started over. I made a new wiki using doku wiki. I use mediawiki for a few big projects but the admin tax too damn high.

Enter Doku Wiki

So I tried doku wiki? Why, dunno. Reclaim Hosting makes it available in cPanel so I gave it a shot. Then I really liked it. Few of us in IndieWeb chat have discussed wikis as of late. I wanted to see if I could add some basic building blocks to the wiki.

It took two installs, I broke the first. Luckily Doku Wiki saves all data in one folder, in plain text. Backup and export was easy. I then learned how to add an html block. I got webmentions working using Fluffy's script.

Up next I wanted to tackle microformats. I learned how to edit the main.tpl file for any theme, This provided the template. I added an h-entry and an assumed author h-card. I then enabled HTML and added an h-card to my sidebar. I did have to add a timestamp plugin to get dt-published or dt-updated. I have to manually add the properties for time.
