In Topic: Anyone want a keybase.io invite?

26 September 2014 - 10:33 AM

So you link all your accounts to this place? seems like a good place to get stalked as it's all public.



That isn't really what it is for, nor is it something you have to do.


It is effectively a centralised public key exchange and you attach accounts such as github / twitter / facebook in order to prove your identity (by announcing your public key publically through those accounts). You don't have to attach any of them, but the whole point of the system is to be a source of trust for identity which enables encrypted communication. If you create a public key but don't tie it to an online identity of yours by publishing it, why would I trust it?

Yeah that definitely seems more reasonable and it's more along the lines of what I'm doing now. I don't stress about it if I miss a day or two, as long as I have done something at the end of the week and I feel like I've put some good work out there I'm okay with it.

Thanks for the support, even though I've been slacking off a little bit lately overall this has been really good for me as I'm doing *some* work. It keeps me at least semi honest even if I don't end up following through on the every 24 hours thing.

It's been a few days since I did anything, but basically I split the framework part of the project out into a new (well old actually, but I completely dumped the previous contents as this is basically just a better version of it) repository. It can be installed with pip from pypi and has dependencies on Flask and pymongo



In the process of doing this groundwork I also pivoted the idea to be somewhat more separate from what I do in my day job. I have yet to really get to work on the specifics of it though to be honest. I've been lacking the motivation to get shit done this last week. I really need to sit down at some point and just do good work for a few hours.


What needs to happen in the next two weeks:

Basic CodeMirror editors for html and css with a combined preview that saves to a mongo collection.

Simple JSON API for receiving data, likely supported through a node service.

 - I will also completely overwrite the private repository as it stands with the newer code-base. I pretty much left it to rot while I rewrote the framework.


As far as the framework I've now open sourced I will continue developing it and fixing it as I go on this project. If anyone thinks it looks interesting I will happily accept help from anyone who wants to work on a bit of random open source.

The next step for the framework is going to be documentation in the form of per-method comments as well as some markdown files that contain usage examples. I am also starting to vaguely formulate ideas as far as how a plugin / module architecture would look for it but that's going to be a fair amount of work and not something that desperately needs doing, so it can wait a little while.

If it turns out someone is interested in getting a few accepted pull requests under their belt on github I will probably start opening a few issues for fairly low hanging fruit tonight. Things like documentation or https://github.com/k...hfield/issues/3 which I just opened.
