This evening: documented Yahoo! Pipes UI in case of sudden shutdown, built first mockup of web dataflow UI using jsplumbtoolkit.com — really excellent library, exactly the right balance between functionality and framework. It gives you a lot but doesn’t dictate how to use it.
OH “minimum viable hospitality” @hakkavelin
Playing with Yahoo Pipes for the first time. This is the UI I’ve been dreaming of for years. The data sources are bogged down with nasty RSS/ATOM semantics, but that’s mostly irrelevant. The important things:
I made a Pipe to convert #microformats2 h-feed/h-entry markup into RSS from scratch in about 15 mins, having never used the tool before (bear in mind also that this is not a tool built for consuming mf2 data structures): Convert Microformats to RSS. The tiny feedback loop the Pipes tool provides, both in deploying, sharing and debugging, enabled Tantek Çelik to find a bug in his site’s markup.
Again: WHY DOES NO-ONE KNOW ABOUT THIS? If it’s because processing stodgy, outdated, DRY-violating formats is its bread and butter, fair enough. Let’s rebuild this with microformats2.
Sounds like cweiske.de got webmention working — hopefully this’ll get through…
v0.2.0 update to php-mf2 (BREAKING CHANGES) contains lots of goodness, including
Aaron Parecki looks like it was a success :) Feedback after using the map creation UI: the path tool is amazing for quickly filling up maps, it would be great if it had the option to automatically insert staggered higher-point points, maybe a 20 every 5 and a 30 every 15 or 20. 50s are most fun to place by hand.
Discovery: my enjoyment of running is directly proportional to the amount of thought which has to go into where to put my feet next.
”standard output formats such as RSS… …(and plain HTML, of course)”
Emphasis mine. From Motivation - Atom Wiki
Just discovered another upside of #microformats2 speed of authoring — when PRs adding mf2 to something are turned down, it’s only 3 minutes of work gone unused!
