Between Jabberia and the Pumpiverse!
Mageia GNU/Linux + KDE Plasma user. I also use Debian GNU/Linux and Archlinux. Jabber/XMPP chatter, Pumper, C/C++/Qt coder. Developer of the Dianara pump.io client.
Hey!! (incoming spanish greeting message)
Y mas concretamente, a Talo!
No olvideis leer los consejos para empezar.
This... is... SPARTAAA!!
Well, Birdparta xD
Let there be stalkers!
Also new today in Dianara, newer than my previous image about the highlight colors and avatar menus actually, is this.
Now, in activities which are "done to a person", such as someone following someone else, you'll see the avatar-button for that someone, too, with the usual options. So you can go ahead and follow every single person your contacts follow, right from the Meanwhile feed, like some sort of "social maniac" =)
Let there be color!
Short update on Dianara 1.2-dev:
The screenshot shows the (customizable) colors, highlighting events in the Meanwhile related to me. There are 4 types of highlighting, each with a different color, or no color, if the user so wishes.
Also seen here, the "avatar-menu-buttons" in posts are much nicer now, just the size of the avatar, and they're also used in the Meanwhile and comments. Following and unfollowing almost anyone is just a couple of clicks away now =)

Creando tu sala de charla en Jabber/XMPP
“¿Tienes un grupo de amigos con los que usas XMPP, tienes un interés que quieres compartir o simplemente quieres reunirte con varias personas en un chat durante un rato? Crear una sala de charla es la solución, por la versatilidad que ofrecen. Lo único que necesitas es una cuenta XMPP.”

“Right on time, and just in time for the first day of FOSDEM 2014, we have the great pleasure of announcing Mageia 4. We’re still having a grand time doing this together, and we hope you enjoy this release as much as we’ve enjoyed making it. And if you’re at FOSDEM, come and help us celebrate!”
Mageia Welcome looks great for beginners =)
Issues following an @identi.ca account from other pumps
Some people are having issues following a certain identi.ca user from other pump.io servers. Following him from an @identi.ca account works.
Following him from a @microca.st account resulted in:
"Internal Server Error (500) TypeError: upstreamDuplicates is not an array"
Any ideas? Does this deserve a proper bug report?
The user in question is 'deblinux'.
Thanks!Show all 5 repliesI pretty-printed their JSON profile data. Somehow their upstreamDuplicates entry (which contains their old Identica URL) has become a map. I have no idea how.
I think two things are in order. Firstly, discovering how the profile ended up looking like that. Secondly, blocking whatever route caused it to occur.
WE ARE THE PUMP.
YOU WILL BE ASSIMILATED.
RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.
Doctor Who video
Just a test, this time with video.
It's a µvideo, 128 KiB in size... I wouldn't want to create extra traffic for the pump server I'm on =)

“For some reason Firefox has problems with your file. It only plays a few seconds and it's completely black.”
Well, it's a 128 KiB video xD
I dd'd it from a real video. You should see like 2 seconds with a Doctor Who logo. It's MP4, so probably FF doesn't like it.
BTW, Phonon (at least on Qt4 times) makes quite a lot of sense outside the KDE Plasma environment! =)
The only real problem I've seen is not having a clear way to change backends.
That being said, with Qt5 (and, to some extent, in Qt4, I think) there's QtMultimedia in parallel with Phonon, IIRC =)
I still have to properly show it too. Maybe a quick workaround could be a QWebView with some <video> tag code, opening as a different window on request, or something.
You'll want both web view and non web view paths. If somebody shares a video from YouTube using impeller, for example, the steam property will point to a flash file (with stream.type =application/x-shockwave-flash). Prefer the embedCode in that case, because it's an iframe which will get HTML5 video

Pump it up!!
You will probably not see any indication of this, but this post includes an audio file. A short piece from "Pump it up", by Danzel, quite appropriate for Pump.io!
Yep, Dianara has now basic (in progress) audio upload support =)
EDIT: Sorry Evan, I deleted that other audio because this one was better for the occasion :pShow all 11 repliesOh, this is great! Awesome. That's just how to do it.
Sorry, I didn't examine the activity itself, just the description, and I jumped to the conclusion that it was the way I didn't want to do it.
There's a mechanism in ActivityStreams to add an array of attachments to an object . I think in most cases if you're sending some audio call it "audio", not "note with an audio attachment".
Chuck Norris' permits
Say 'hi' to Dianara v1.1!!
The main highlights of this version are the enhancements in the Meanwhile feed (specially the “+” button to open referenced posts), the filters, and the fact that you can add and remove members from person lists now.
And fixes all over the place. Check the blog post, or the CHANGELOG file for a more detailed list.

Dianara 1.1 Beta 1
Hot on the heels of the release of Pumpa 0.8.1, I'm releasing a test version of what will be Dianara v1.1.
Main changes include a lot more information in the Meanwhile column, highlighting items related to you, marking new items in a different color, a filtering system, and a [+] button which will open the referenced post, allowing for normal interaction with it.
(There is a problem however, see pump.io issue #873)
Also, the "Lists manager" (inside the Contacts tab) can now manage who is in which list, so list support is now mostly complete and useful.
See the CHANGELOG file for a detailed list.
Some data is stored in a different way now, so a few things will reset on first use.
Come on in, have a seat...
My next chair!
Ahi teneis la comparativa... actual izquierda, "futuro" derecha.
Tambien se aceptan sugerencias sobre que poner en el boton en lugar de un simple "+" xD
English: Just showing the "+" buttons in Dianara's Meanwhile column. Current size in left side, possible future size in right side.Show all 10 replies
>> Manuel Jiménez Friaza:
“Se me ocurre que una flecha doblada, como la del ENTER pero al revés, podría quedar bien, pero agrandaría mucho el botón ¿no?”
Bueno, el boton no crecera mientras solo haya un caracter. Pero preferiblemente un caracter ASCII estandar. De la tabla Latin-1 como mucho.
Salirse de eso es exponerse a que algunos usuarios no vean el simbolo, y siendo parte de la interfaz, no es plan xD
Replying to a comment? Think twice
Just a little heads up to pumpers everywhere.
If you reply to a comment, either because the client you use allows it, or because you're opening the comment directly on a separate browser tab on Pump's web interface, keep in mind that this is not officially supported (though technically possible, as you can see), and that some people might not see your comment, maybe the very same people you're trying to reply to.
The 'safe' solution, for now, is replying to the original note/image. Yes, I know the current state of this is not optimal.
If you're a client developer and your client allows this, please think of what confusion this might cause your users, and if they're informed of the "consequences".
P.S.- This is just a recommendation, don't take it the wrong way.Show all 8 repliesIn Pumpa if you click reply on a comment it will automatically reassign it to the parent post. (Unless you enable a "secret" option which can only be done by editing the config file by hand - I added this feature only because some users requested it really strongly :-)
But for example in Puma (on Android) it is quite hard to reply to a comment in your mentions stream without doing it in this "bad" way :-(
And as you say, the some goes for the web UI, although there it is at least usually possible to go to the parent post.
I think I'm in favour of threading these days. Places like reddit have demonstrated that it can work well and in a user friendly way.
Perhaps I should add a warning in Impeller, but it's certainly not a feature I want to take away.
Likewise, I'm leaving in the semi hidden feature which lets you post an image as a reply, even though Impeller is perhaps the only client which displays that correctly. Perhaps it will encourage others to support it
email@example.com likes this.I'm dissapointed a bit.
Especially regarding the promise of what is theoretically possible I'd expect a well defined standard for the most basic things.
I acknowledge that this is a parallel effort to the infrastructure, but it sends a strong message: "Pump.io - gives developers the freedom to do everything totally different. within the same protocol."
If this is like XMPP for instant messaging we probably need XEPs?
How far is the server to go? What if you are posting a comment in reply to a comment in reply to another comment in reply to a post?
Never mind the difficulty of complex discussions without threading, a complete nonstarter. And what about other server software? Is MediaGoblin going to do the same? Hypothetical software X?

Kaffeine needs some love!
Christoph Pfister, current Kaffeine maintainer, is looking for a new maintainer. Interested?
“Hi guys, I know I should have done this step earlier. After taking over this project from Christophe Thommeret long ago and doing a lot of interesting stuff, I've been busy with real life in the past months (years) and the situation will not change in the future. As I'm unable to maintain Kaffeine in an appropriate manner, I've decided to abandon the project. Therefore I'm asking whether someone is interested in taking over maintainership; I've listed the current state of the project at the end of this mail. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to deal with patches earlier [ sorry guys! ], so I don't have a logical candidate or so. But if somebody is willing to take over [ you should know a bit about Qt and KDE and preferably have some Dvb / Atsc equipment at hand ], I will try to support the handover.”
