inana_16lelkneralfaro, yeah i need to tell u something before Cesiah arrives15:54
lelkneralfaroinana_16, okay, joining now15:54
jelknerbtw. Did ubuntourist ever find is diet coke?15:55
jelknerSo, ubuntourist, I'll generate a NOVA Web Development self-signed X.509 key15:56
jelknerput it on this physical key, and print it out on a piece of paper, and lock both of them in the ACFCU safe deposit box15:57
jelkner*after* using the key to sign everyone's own personal, self signed keys15:57
jelknerwe use those to sign the Operating Agreement15:57
jelknerubuntourist, I have a new version of the operating agreement with Signature objects inserted for each of the six of us15:58
jelkneri now just need to confirm the signing plan works15:59
jelknerbtw. It seems you need to upgrade to LibreOffice 715:59
jelknerbut that's easy to do15:59
jelknerSITarabuta, remember, zOnny's B'Day is two days from now16:00
jelknerand lelkneralfaro three days from then16:00
jelknerok, i'm going to get back to work on taxes16:00
jelkneri spend all day yesterday finishing NOVALACIRO taxes16:00
jelknerwhich is *way* too long to spend16:01
jelknerbut i'm documenting well16:01
jelknerso next time, it will take an hour instead16:01
SITarabutaI hope he found it jelkner\16:08
SITarabutaOh ok, so zOnny is on 13th and lelkneralfaro is on 14th?16:09
ubuntouristjelkner, Sorry. I stepped away for quite a while.16:19
ubuntouristI should have mentioned: I was exploring ways to abuse our Let's Encrypt key for signing.16:20
ubuntouristSITarabuta, I'm sipping on my Diet Coke now... 16:20
ubuntouristjelkner, I won a YubiKey ( years ago, but found it to be more of a nuisance than an aid.16:23
jelknerSITarabuta, lelkneralfaro is the 16th16:23
jelknernext Sunday16:23
jelknerubuntourist, it is just going to be a place to store the key we use to sign everyone else's key16:24
jelknerso the digital signatures will be signed by the coop16:24
jelknerand the coop's private key will be kept in the safe deposit box16:24
jelknerthat's my understanding, anyway16:25
ubuntouristjelkner, Have you succeeded in using an X.509 signature on a document yet?16:27
inana_16lelkneralfaro, 16:27
inana_16please come back16:27
inana_16to the channel16:28

lelkneralfaroinana_16, lol ok16:28
lelkneralfaroinana_16, you're learning that i disappear16:28
jelknerubuntourist, yes16:31
jelknerbut this has been a comedy of errors (bugs)16:31
jelknerseahorse has a bug that keeps LibreOffice from reading its keys16:32
jelknerbut, LibreOffice can read from the Firefox keystore16:32
jelknerso, you need to load the key into firefox16:32
jelknerthen sign from LibreOffice16:32
jelknerit's a mess16:32
ubuntouristjelkner, Documented on the wiki, per chance? (I was researching the same thing, and was reaching similar conclusions, but hadn't tried yet.)16:32
jelknerbut matt left me documentation which i will follow today16:32
jelknerubuntourist, will document16:33
jelknerbut with so many things broken16:33

ubuntouristjelkner, Amina's here20:00
inana_16jelkner, I'm on planning now20:03
jelknerinana_16, my bad20:03
jelkneri'm meeting with amina20:03
inana_16maybe tomorrow?20:04
jelkneri forgot i had that until ubuntourist reminded me20:04
jelknerhow about after?20:04
*** amina has joined #novawebdev20:04
aminaHi everyone! Has anyone here used React js?20:06
jelknerSITarabuta, zOnny, abuchholz, could one of you please answer amina's question?20:06
SITarabutaOh boy React JS ;-)20:06
SITarabutaI have not touched that yet, sorry!20:07
zOnnyme neither20:07
abuchholzit does look like they have good documentation
aminaWhat kind of front end development do we use at NOVA web development?20:09
SITarabutaWe use a raw stack of HTML + CSS + JavaScript / JQuery where necessary. Bootstrap would be a framework that we include everyone that just makes CSS styles nicer.20:10
SITarabutaSo not that raw because of Bootstrap20:10
SITarabutaBut otherwise mostly raw ;-)20:10
SITarabutaeverywhere* not everyone haha20:10
SITarabutaI would say it limits us most of the time because we can't do cool dynamic pages, but it keeps things simple, fast, and bugs free most of the time.20:11
SITarabutaamina, I hope that answers your question.20:11
aminaYes, it does. Thank you!20:14
zOnnyamina: React components are awesome and when u combine them with django there is probably no other need for any other javascript library, literaly or even a front end framework. 20:18
