Hey y'all, I just got a few Merveilles stickers delivered! We're still working out what we're going to do with them, but we'll be looking at sending those out after the jam :3 :merveilles:

It looks pretty great on my espresso machine~

Merveilles Jam Thread

I know we're not friday yet, but let's start up a thread with resources and things so people can get organized.


@cancel If it involves actually changing something about how Mastodon converts images, the fix may be pretty hairy to do—the kind of thing that might take hours to even look at, which unfortunately I won't be able to do this week.

If you're able to find any github issues or PRs on Mastodon that reference this same problem, that can help me look into this though!

@cancel Honestly I share your frustration—this software could be put together way better but it's not quite to where I want it, too. It won't be an immediate fix, but maybe actively participating in and contributing to the underlying software could help way more :3

@cancel The only immediate workaround I can suggest is to upload it somewhere else and paste the link to it in a post here >.<

The video conversion really doesn't work for super small GIF animations or pixel art

@cancel I'm unsure if APNG or WEBP are going to be supported in the future but that sure would be nice

@cancel It looks like webp isn't supported on Mastodon according to the docs, the way Masto works is that it automatically converts your GIF into a video: docs.joinmastodon.org/user/pos

It is decided, Merveilles is hosting an interactive art jam on the first weekend of April, starting on friday evening.

I'm sure you can guess what the only rule is. See you there :maru:

Nice, looks like all the permissions are set on Spaces. Time to get rid of the S3 account >:3

@neauoire @dualhammers @grey Hm, to be honest, I've never tested this locally before!

You can run Mastodon based on our repo locally, it looks like, but the docs are a bit sparse: docs.joinmastodon.org/dev/setu

I'd add a stylesheet to the webpage using an addon like Stylish: addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef

To update the site, you need access to the merveilles-town server to pull down the latest commit and restart the mastodon-web process. Since we're on a new server, I need to get your SSH key on there!

@stephen Aww thank you for this! And thanks to all the folks who replied below, that's super nice <3

Nice, looks like the rest of the missing assets were uploaded and now all we have to do is wait for the other existing images to have their permissions set.

I think I might do a short writeup over the weekend of what I had to do for this migration and some things that I learned as well—I definitely made some mistakes, but hopefully other folks can learn from them :3

@neauoire @raelzero Yup! It should be fixed once the processes I have going are done running. Missing images need to be uploaded, and some existing images need their permissions set properly!
