official place to get news on kyselo project
(run by @severak)
I added two small improvements to the comments:
I keep exploring Fediverse and related software projects. While I want Kyselo to be interoperable I discovered that this is impossible without big refactoring of our database followed by data migration to new scheme. I don't want to do this. So I decided that Kyselo will not federate in it's current form. However I am still interested in Fediverse and I want to create Kyselo-like Mastodon client. But this is question for the future me.For now I added small experimental feature - I am measuring of how fast our timelines are. Unit of this measurement is number of posts per hour, day or month (whatever makes sense). So please keep those in healthy ranges.
I have noticed that there was no robots.txt file on Kyselo. So I added one. While I was doing it I added possibility to hide your profile from web scraping robots (and activated this for my cat). It can be enabled on your blog settings (new checkbox exclude from search engines).Note that posts are still public and robots can index whatever is reposted. Also everyone page is not yet hidden from robots (this may change in the future).While I was doing it I added filtering by post types to the your /yourblog/tags page. I also added export for twtxt - it's now automatically enabled for anyone at /yourblogblog/twtxt page. It exports only text posts.
As I want to migrate from bitbucket, I updated our github source code mirror.More features coming soon.* * *
I added new mode of everyone page which shows last posts by each user. I also added the possibility to sort users by last activity and number of posts. There is also new unfiltered view which shows all posts which get posted on kyselo including reposts.
Last new thing is cron job sending you once a week e-mail when you got unread new message or more than five notifications.
More new features coming soon™.
* * *
and now stats:
This means that it would be possible to follow Kyselo accounts from Fediverse. This would be opt-in - if you don't want to be followed from Fediverse you don't need to.
Downside is that I am not yet able to do it other way around - you will not be able to follow users from Fediverse and you will not get notification when your post is reposted by Fediverse users.
Please let me know if this is interesting for you or if you are using Fediverse at all in the comments of this post.
after some struggling with some linux-fu, chat is back! It runs on server kindly donated by my friend. This server also needs demo of custom mapserver among other things (minetest server coming soon).But this is just a beginning and I am already thinking about cool future features. Next step will be probably better backup scheme (ZIP archives generated on server).Also I paid 1257 CZK hosting & domain fee to keep Kyselo alive for another year. It would be appreciated if you sent some bucks to my paypal.Finally some numbers:
are alive for 707 days (1 years 11 months)
have 151 users
active user is @gpkvt with
active group is @memes with
are about 37 post per day
these 18 are originals (no reposts)
Please, do not use backup tool. It downloads large numbers of images in short time which leads you to be banned from my hosting. Kyselo then looks completely down from your IP while other connections are completely OK.I got banned this way. (massive facepalm)I hope no one other got banned this way. If you know about someone, please let them contact me via my other contacts listed here.
In the near future I will move Kyselo to my own server which I acquired from my friend. There will be proper backup system with big ZIP files generated server side.
I want to wish everybody here Happy New Year!
There are some updates already prepared to land in January.
Keep posting in 2022.
kyselo backup on my hard drive
as you may have notice in last update, I was working on another brand new feature - realtime chat.This was more challenging than I expected but hey - it's there. It's just a basic chat. No direct messages, there is only one room, no emojis and gifs. But I keep tab with chat open (when I am online) and you can write me.
So now there is GREAT KYSELO USER SURVEY when I want to ask you what do you like and don't like about Kyselo, which new features would you like to see or how do you actually use it.
Another thing which I would like to investigate is future legal form of Kyselo. In current state sole operation and financial side of Kyselo depends on me as a person. If something goes wrong with me (or my family budget) it can be pretty bad for Kyselo too. I need to invent some more stable structure which essentialy means bring more people into Kyselo team.
@juozaspo asked me for adding description to the videos.I have added that, you can now add description to your videos - see example.What to do next?
I have updated our todo.txt and you can expect some of these features coming in next weeks:- better videos player (with reposting)- better filtering of feeds (by tags, post type)- new audio/video post types- sounds playlist- list users/groups by last activity, popularity, alphabet- show that post/comment was edited (maybe even history of posts)- anonymous feedback form (also known as dead drop)- disabling comments- /all with reposts- friends of a friends (list)- RSS client with one click reposting to Kyselo- some code cleanup with no visible effect- new fancy bugs* * *
Did you ever wanted to easily repost memes from Souper.io or Loforo.com without manually copying image URLs, taking screenshots or doing other workarounds?Now it's possible - just open new tab with image you want to repost and use kyselo bookmarklet to post it here.
I have already reposted this medieval shitpost and this non-fiction book cover but many other memes will come. I can also add support for another sites - I just need some site with predictable HTML structure to let my black magic code do it's job. Let me know in the comments...Speaking of comments - something big is coming soon, something that will change your tune... Stay tuned and maybe throw some euros in my hat to let my know that you like these updates...
I just paid another year of hosting and domain. Enjoy Kyselo!
thank you for our new home 3
And now something completely different, the numberz:
Hello all. Kyselo was down yesterday because of certificate error. It was some system bug at my webhosting and they fixed it after other users complained.
However in case it would be down again it would be nice to have some meeting point, so I created two:
both places can be used for cat/shitposting too.
Also - there is a major update on the way. So stay tuned!Finally some stats:
happy new year 2021!
today it's 100 days after Kyselo was succesfully installed.
But it dates way longer than that:
Today Kyselo has small but nice community. Development somewhat stalled, but new features are still being developed. Kyselo is free to use, but there is donate button which is actually used - I spent those money in tape recorders and stuff.
Finally, some numbers:
Kyselo is primarily a social network, but can be used in other ways:
For those last two functions I added new views of your blog/group which can be enabled on your settings tab.
And now something completely different - stats:
in last update, I asked you for donations. After one day first donation arrived and to this day seven people donated.
One of them is Andrzej even though he has no account on Kyselo yet. He asked for RSS channel of /all. Because this is relatively easy I implemented it - /all/rss.
There are also another improvements:
Speaking of stats, here are some:
as you probably noticed - kyselo has new home - kyselo.eu.
For now it stays on the same hosting as it was before - so you cannot post porn yet. Sorry.
I added feature requested by @chosneck - a list of all users (use this to find your friend from Soup). I also added list of followed blogs to each friends page and a list of members to each group.
I did more little changes - for example blog avatars are now displayed as 50px wide thumbnails, not in full size.
And now some numbers:
Yours truly @severak
PS: please, do not advertise Kyselo on Loforo, they don't like it and may ban you.
PS2: stole memes from them. :-)
Timeline speed: 0.92 posts per month
You have reached the end...
