Just a few bugfixes:
- Fixed a problem that prevented logging out from working
view.deletedwork correctly on count-based paginations
- Allowed date-based paginations to work from an empty starting point
Just a few bugfixes:
view.deletedwork correctly on count-based paginations
Just a few changes:
webmention.js now supports changing the sort criterion and order of responses, and defaults to publication (rather than receipt) time.
This was mostly to improve the presentation of responses received via brid.gy, particularly from Twitter.
This is a new version of Publ. The main change is how deletions (using
<del>HTML</del> <s>tags</s>) get converted to plaintext — namely they get removed, to make it make more visible sense.
Doing this also led to refactoring the internal
strip_html function to provide a bit more flexibility, so now it’s now available as a Jinja2 template filter.
I also removed a couple of troublesome micro-optimizations that were causing more trouble than they were worth.
The 0.6 milestone has finally been completed, so Publ 0.6.0 is now released!
Changes since v0.5.16:
category.tagsuse the most-recently-seen capitalization of any given tag
And, since this is a new milestone, what’s improved since v0.5.0? Quite a lot! 237 commits, in fact. Here’s some of the features that stand out to me in the change log:
At this point I feel like Publ is very usable and flexible, and I would love to see more people give it a try. At some point I need to do a documentation push — both improving the quality of the user documentation (it’s gotten to be quite a mess!) and also making this site more of a demo of what Publ can do.
This is something I’d love to get some help with.
Today I released Publ v0.5.16, since it has a few features I wanted to deploy on my own sites:
Not much to say about this, just a handful of performance tweaks and bug fixes:
Today I released v0.5.14 of Publ, which has a bunch of improvements:
Progress being made, although not much of it has been in service of my intended v0.6 milestone. At some point I’m going to have to bite the bullet and actually start writing some automated tests.
no_smartquotesAPI change to
Also, as of now, I run a live version of the Publ integration tests, although it’s currently only manually-updated.
Update: And as if to hammer home the point regarding automated testing, I had to release 0.5.13.1 because, wellp, released with a site-breaking bug in the new card parser… Sigh.
Today I got a fire lit under me and decided to do a bunch of bug fixing and general performance improvements.
Changes since v0.5.11:
markup=Falseworks, making it available from all Markdown/HTML contexts
no_smartquotesis retained for template compatibility) (although I missed this on
entry.title; I’ve already committed a fix for the next version)
Some fresh new versions of things.
Changes to Publ:
config.secret_key; now this should be configured on the application object per Flask standards
srcto contain image renditions
Publ v0.5.10 is now available. The following has changed since v0.5.9:
entry.more(with some caveats), and also get stable permalinks for their references1
I’ve also made a bunch of changes to the sample templates.
Publ v0.5.9 is now out. Just a couple of bugfixes in this one:
view.rangeworks correctly again, as does everything else that relied on
len()on parameter-optional properties (e.g.
So, both Publ and Authl had a pretty naïve issue with the identity verification step of the IndieAuth flow; it simply accepted whatever the authorization endpoint said the user’s identity was. This made it very simple to spoof one’s identity and log in as anyone on any Publ or Authl site.
Authl 0.3.1 fixes the problem with the IndieAuth login flow, and Publ 0.5.8 fixes the problem with the Bearer token flow.
There is only one feature for this new release of Publ, but it’s a big one – there is (theoretical) support for AutoAuth! That’s right, deploy this version and people should be able to magically log on to your website using unattended IndieAuth providers.
Unfortunately, there aren’t any tools that I know of which actually support this mode of operation; all testing has been manual and In Theory.
Fortunately, if someone does want to test AutoAuth (or IndieAuth Bearer authentication in general), you can test it out on this site! You can use this entry as an individual entry, and this category or this feed to see how well it works with the “partial public” path.
Also, this page will tell you all sorts of useful information about the current user (if any).
And I’d might as well use this opportunity to show off the admin dashboard – just sign in as the user
test:admin to see how it looks.
EDIT: It looks like there’s a problem with third-party auth due to the way that Heroku works. I should have anticipated this. Third-party auth is temporarily disabled for now. (But this doesn’t affect
AutoAuth at least!)
Oops, I’d been sitting on a bunch of bugfixes for a month, which I didn’t notice until I put in another bugfix tonight.
Changes since v0.5.5:
link_classto image renditions
altgeneration for external images
Howdy y'all! Here’s a new release of Publ for you.
What’s new in this version:
Also the unannounced v0.5.4 release was to fix some stuff that broke due to an upstream Arrow change (specifically dealing with them removing an API that I was using to suppress warnings for a different upstream change that I’d already handled).
I should also mention that I’ve updated the beesbuzz.biz template samples to improve IndieWeb and ActivityPub compatibility. (Publ still doesn’t support ActivityPub itself but these changes make it interoperate with Bridgy Fed a bit better.)
On a meta note, I’ve left the microbiology lab I was at; I hope they continue to use Publ, of course! Over the next little while I’m going to spend some more time working on my own things again (including Publ et al), but I’ve also had some interesting job interviews with one of them seeming very likely to turn into an offer. Wish me luck, if you’re into that sort of thing! (And of course, follow my blog for the primary source of this stuff.)
I’ve released updates to both Publ and Authl.
On the Authl side:
disposition.Errorso that can be preserved correctly
On the Publ side:
These changes help to keep sites more secure from eavesdroppers, while also hopefully improving the user experience!
Oh gosh I seem to be on a roll with these updates again. Here’s what changed in Publ:
logout.htmltemplate to support that. (Also made the default
unauthorized.htmluse Authl’s default CSS.)
entry.authorizedavailable, rather than just documented. Also gave it a better name while I was at it.
view.entriescan now take an optional argument for inlining unauthorized entries, improving its usage within feeds.
view.unauthorizedcan now take an optional argument for limiting the unauthorized view count, which helps performance and makes it a bit more predictable
category.subcats(recurse=True)and also added some actual tests for the sort ordering. They pass.
And the Authl changes (which were actually released before Publ 0.5.0 but I didn’t bother announcing them until I had them tested “in the wild”):
Anyway, I of course updated the sample beesbuzz.biz templates to reflect the new functionality.
Wow, Publ’s feeling like it’s actually kinda pretty good at stuff now. I hope someone else ever wants to actually, like, use it or something.
I figured there wasn’t really any reason to keep waiting. So here we are.
Changes since v0.4.6:
In other news, over on my main website I have successfully migrated my comments over to Isso, which is a nice self-hosted alternative to Disqus that does a much better job of handling privacy in particular, as well as providing a simpler UX that doesn’t try to get in your face about everything. If you want to read more about how I made that change, read the several blog entries starting with “Moving away from Disqus,” and also look at the sample templates to see the actual implementation.
May your private entries remain exclusive, and your public entries be brilliant.
UPDATE: Someday I’ll learn to use and test rc builds before making an actual public release. Oops.
