I think my favorite new weird feature of Aperture is the ability to switch it into "Demo Mode" which will hide certain channels from view and from Microsub clients. This comes in handy when taking screenshots and doing presentations where I don't want to reveal some of my private channe... aaronparecki.com

@aaronpk thatโ€™s looking wondrous. Any tips on running it, or is it still too flaky?

@dgold "Flaky" isn't the word I would use, how about "experimental"? ๐Ÿ˜„ I've committed to using it every day for the last week or so, and even turned off a bunch of my IRC sources to force myself to use it. It is changing rapidly though as I keep adding features, so it's not exactly "stable."

@aaronpk I have to say, I'm loving what I see. Despite the warnings I've given it a go but can't seem to get any of the feeds to update, is there a trick to it?

@grib Thanks! Yeah it's a bit of a process with a few moving parts right now. I'll eventually make it easier to get going. Thankfully for now @ascraeus.org wrote up some pretty good instructions!https://ascraeus.org/websub-part-i-watchtower/https://ascraeus.org/websub-part-ii-aperture/

@aaronpk no need to apologise, it's amazing and hope to be able to contribute. I'm not sure about the Notifications channel is that specifically to set up feeds you want alerts from like social mentions etc? So can I set up a feed that needs an Auth token passed in the header?

@grib That's the idea yeah! Still very much in the works, and I'm experimenting with a few different ways of handling it. Right now I have my webmentions going into that channel. It would be totally appropriate if you wanted to add a private feed into that channel!
