Re: 500 - Something went wrong for post with custom subdomain 3 days ago

From Edward Loveall to ~edwardloveall/scribe

Those look like URLs for Substack posts not Medium articles. Scribe only supports Medium. Are those somehow Medium URLs in disguise and I'm missing something?

New Version 2022-01-23 5 days ago

From Edward Loveall to ~edwardloveall/scribe

Hello! I released a new version of Scribe today. It is deployed on https://scribe.rip

The main change is that Gists are now proxied through Scribe instead of using the embedded script provided by GitHub. This requires two new environment variables, GITHUB_USERNAME and GITHUB_PERSONAL_ACCESS_TOKEN. Without the token, embedding Gists will still work, but requests are limited to 60/hour. With authentication, the limit it 5000/hour.

To get a token, visit https://github.com/settings/tokens and create a new token. The only permission it needs is `gist`.

I also added a CHANGELOG file that I will hopefully keep current.

Doh! It's the same URL, so it's almost certainly the same issue.

Hi Nikos,

Thanks for the detailed report and I'm glad you're enjoying Scribe!

I haven't had a chance to look into this yet, but it might be related to this issue "URLs with encoded umlauts don't work":

https://todo.sr.ht/~edwardloveall/Scribe/15

I've put this thread in the comments for that issue. When I get around to looking into that issue, I'll make sure to look at this post as well and proceed from there.

Re: Specifying an instance's domain 13 days ago

Congrats on getting that set up, Austin 😃

To show your domain the APP_DOMAIN environment variable must be set. This only takes effect if the LUCKY_ENV environment variable is also set to production.

You can see the relevant code that makes this possible here:

https://git.sr.ht/~edwardloveall/scribe/tree/main/item/config/route_helper.cr#L2-4

Let me know when you get this working, and I'll add you to the list of instances! Reply back if you have any other questions, and thanks for getting another instance of Scribe going.

Re: [PATCH] Exclude cdn-images in regex 26 days ago

From Edward Loveall to ~edwardloveall/scribe

Thanks Austin!

Thinking ahead a little, I wonder how many more of these domain exceptions there are and if it would make more sense to specify some advanced options instead of lengthening an already complex RegularExpression. You mentioned that this would be more fool-proof so it seems like you might have thought about this already.

Great idea, thank you. I'll probably do something similar to what 
Biblirogram does and link it from the homepage of FAQ.

Re: Handling link.medium.com 2 months ago

From Edward Loveall to ~edwardloveall/scribe

Yeah those are really good points. I did built scribe in part for 
privacy, but it's not really achieving that goal as you pointed out with 
images and embeds. My main goal is to get people to stop using Medium. 
Then all of these problems disappear 😄

I'll put this on the back burner for now as it doesn't seem like a 
priority and it does add some complications. Thanks for talking this 
through with me.

Edward
