exploring StatusNet 1.x

From I ask questions
Jump to: navigation, search


Time to explore my own StatusNet instance - for now it's restricted (invite-only).

My initial goal is to explore the federation aspect more based on the software StatusNet - since I've experience with identi.ca it's an advantage.

goals

  1. turn StatusNet into hub center:
    1. Green tick.svg Done import feeds (done via: SubMirror plugin + feedburner)
      1. posts from all identi.ca contacts
      2. my own friendika posts
    2. (import twitter contacts' feeds (perhaps not good due to licence?))
  2. (dent from here to identi.ca)
  3. ...

observations

unsorted:

  • Google Analytics:
spent a little too much time on this plugin,
due to lack of (good) documentation how to set up, see my comment here
  • change log file place
$config['site']['logfile'] = '/tmp/statusnet.log';
  • enabled Gravatar plugin
  • if you want to see all your enabled plugins visit: ../main/version
  • when I logged in at someone else's Statusnet server with OpenID, just saw a blank page :-(
    • tested on my own server + log in with 3 different openid providers works
  • import feeds (e.g. atom, RSS, activity streams)
    • one can import feeds with the SubMirror plugin
    • when all works, you can find this at this URL: ../settings/mirror
      • unfortunately ran into problems (FeedSubUnrecognizedTypeException: application/json; charset=utf-8, FeedSubBadResponseException: 404, FeedSubNoHubException)
      • you can bypass this when you add the feed first to Feedburner + then import the feedburner feed
      • reason: the feed needs to be pubsubhubbub (PuSH) enabled
  • plugin sitemap plugin
    • do NOT do what is told here
  • in some plugin cases this is helpful:
    • php /$baseinstallpath/scripts/checkschema.php

questions

  • how can I do this: reply from my server to a remote server?
    • seems I've to activate Ostatus plugin
      • when you have a private site, OStatus won't work
      • you need these php extensions: bcmath + gmp, see here
      • check if all is fine with your Ostatus with this tool
  • feed import of twitter
    • may not harmonize with SN licence
    • perhaps change licence to something like: all my own dents are licence CC by, but the ones from twitter are ...
    • may be a solution:
      • // optionally show non-local messages in public timeline
      • // $config['public']['localonly'] = true;
