Make wiki pages hierarchical again to reduce TOC menu. (ubuntourist)16:00
*** zOnny has joined #novawebdev16:00
ubuntouristMade it.16:01
nrcernaHello everyone!16:01
jelknerTop of the day to ya!16:01
nrcernaWell I think the first two items are realted16:02
jelknerand the last, nrcerna 16:02
jelknerwe should talk about them all at once16:02
nrcernaCan you talk about the wiki? abuchholz, SITarabuta 16:02
nrcernayes jelkner 16:02
abuchholz its live16:03
SITarabutaAnd, because jelkner requested this loudly16:03
SITarabutathese are instructions on setting up your email16:03
abuchholzIt is easily available on the home page under "Important Links"16:04
SITarabutaI mean it just works16:05
SITarabutaTry it out16:05
abuchholzThat's essentially it for now16:05
jelknerlet's use it16:06
SITarabutaIt's WYSIWYG, so enjoy16:06
ubuntouristCould it become heirarchical again? Right now all the nested stuff has flattened out in the ToC.16:06
jelknerwe should talk about ubuntourist's request16:06
*** bcassatt has joined #novawebdev16:07
SITarabutaYes. We should. I am trying to think of a nice way of doing it. It ain't easy though16:07
jelknerubuntourist, we talked yesterday about having the view according to most recently modified16:07
SITarabutaSo it will take a bit of time16:07
jelkneri think that would actually be the most collaboratively useful view16:07
jelknersince it would encourage us to look at "what's new"16:07
ubuntourist(I see Alan's this, Alan's that, Alan, Alan... Alan, ad nauseum, and then all the other pages.)16:08
jelkneryes, ubuntourist 16:08
jelknerthat's because SITarabuta hasn't made the change yet16:08
jelkneri need to file an issue first16:08
ubuntouristAh. OK. Move on then.16:08
jelknerthen it would be temporal, not lexigraphical order16:09
SITarabutaOk, let's move on..16:09
jelknerSITarabuta, abuchholz we will need this on the NOVALCIRO site as well16:09
jelknerACTION done16:09
ubuntouristBlogs are temporal. Wikis I'm not so sure about.16:10
jelknerubuntourist, let's talk later16:10
nrcernaOk next item: Changing the way LibreOrganize is structured (particularly the 2 repos) (SITarabuta)16:10
SITarabutaOh boy ok so16:10
SITarabutaUh I don't know about you, but the way we are doing the "setup" is kind of bad16:11
SITarabutaif you want to run libreorganize you need to also get custom designs16:11
SITarabutathey are kind of dependent on each other16:11
SITarabutaand custom designs is private16:11
ubuntouristSITarabuta, I noticed. ;-)16:11
SITarabutaso if someone clones libreorganize, good luck running it16:11
SITarabutaso my plan is to move the base template into LibreOrganize16:11
SITarabutaand Change the Custom Designs to a "Theme"16:11
SITarabutawhich also has 2/3 .py files with theme settings16:12
SITarabutanow this is a transition16:12
SITarabutaand because NWD and NOVALACIRO16:12
SITarabutaalready run16:12
SITarabutait is not an easy git pull16:12
SITarabutaso it will take around 1 week maybe more16:12
SITarabutathose with instances on your own machine, be prepared to work with broken stuff16:13
jelknerbetter now than later16:13
ubuntouristSITarabuta, who will need to pull during the week? I can certainly hold off.16:13
SITarabutaWell, it is best to wait a bit16:13
SITarabutaBut I will try to work in a different branch16:13
SITarabutato not disrupt16:13
SITarabutaso you should be fine16:14
ubuntouristSITarabuta, in fact, what I'll probably do is "rm -rf" followed by "git clone" ;-)16:14
SITarabutakind of16:14
SITarabutathat would be the best ubuntourist16:14
SITarabutathis is about it16:14
SITarabutaACTION done16:14
ubuntourist(Speaking of "rm -rf" Jitsi is purged and being rebuilt from the ashes.)16:15
SITarabuta*fingers crossed* we get that working so i can share my screen with Jeff16:15
*** GFbot has joined #novawebdev16:15
SITarabutabecause he doesn't want to install discord ;)16:15
jelknersoftware freedom!16:16
jelknerpeace, love, justice!16:16
SITarabutawhat are we doing16:17
jelknernrcerna, you're driving, right?16:17
nrcernanext : Brief update on business plan (jelkner)16:17
jelknerok, we need to be ready to market our business at the beginning of june16:18
jelknerwe'll need to keep up the wonderful progress we have been making for that to be possible16:18
jelknerspecifically we need to:16:18
jelkner1. use our new wiki together to find bugs and refine it16:18
jelkner2. get it running on novalaciro so they can use it to share info with members16:19
jelknerthen it's time to setup customer #316:19
jelknerour revolution arlington16:19
SITarabutaI am excited to see the pile of issues on Sunday16:19
jelkneri'll reach out to the steering committe today16:19
jelknerand setup a meeting with them16:19
jelkneri'll report back on that on sunday16:20
jelknerACTION done16:20
nrcernaThanks jelkner 16:20
nrcernaanyone wants to share anything?16:21
ubuntouristQuestion for abuchholz: How "standardized" is the Wiki stuff? Specifically:16:21
SITarabutaWe do have [[ ]] 16:21
SITarabutaAt least that16:21
ubuntouristIf I have markdown files, mediawiki files, etc, and I have `pandoc` how easy is it to convert and import old content into the new wiki?16:22
SITarabutayeah... not really. :(16:22
SITarabutawe do support that16:23
SITarabutamediawiki files, god, they need to be uploaded via the CKEditor16:23
SITarabutaand I wish I knew what pandoc is16:23
ubuntouristMarkdown was my primary concern. 16:23
jelknerSITarabuta, it's a swiss army knife written in haskel for converting among formats16:24
SITarabutaWe support that, but again, it is basically a Code Snippet inside CKEditor16:24
ubuntouristpandoc is a command-line tool for converting one form of markup to another. think the prefix "pan-"16:24
SITarabutaOh I see16:24
SITarabutaWell, the wiki is HTML16:24
ubuntouristI can feed pandoc a markdown or mediawiki file and ask it to produce an html file, but I want to avoid unnecessary "clutter"16:25
SITarabutaso if you can get it in HTML, then you would have it in the native format16:25
SITarabutaYou can keep Markdown if you wish16:25
jelknerso we are getting lost in the weeds here16:26
jelkneran important discussion16:26
jelknerbut an after meeting deep dive16:26
ubuntouristin those files. So, if I can hone close to what our wiki expects -- e.g. avoiding <div><div><div><span><span><span></span></span></span></div></div></div>16:26
ubuntouristwhen <div></div> will do.16:26
jelknernrcerna, can we close the meeting?16:27
nrcernayes jelkner 16:27
nrcernaACTION Drops the bag of gravel16:27
jelknerthanks nrcerna!16:27
jelknersee y'all sunday16:27
nrcernanp :)16:27
nrcernaSee you! 16:27
SITarabutaSee you16:27
ubuntouristOK. So it's now "later". Wikipedia is not a chronologically organized system, nor can I think of any useful wiki that is.16:29
ubuntourist(Well, to be honest, there is a SMALL portion of Wikipedia that is chronological, but by and large, that's not how it's used.)16:30
ubuntouristWiki != Blog.16:30
abuchholzubuntourist we understand16:30
abuchholzgive us a little bit of time we will reorganize some things. If you file an issue that is the greatest help to us16:31
SITarabutaWell, this is a fight between you and jelkner16:31
SITarabutajelkner would love if you could join Discord Voice #116:31
ubuntourist(abuchholz, I was responding to jelkner's comment)16:32
