Quill's event creation UI now has venue autocomplete and a map preview, and sends the full venue information to your Micropub endpoint as an h-card! Selecting a location also sets the timezone offset of the event start/end date properly too!
This just made it so much easier to post events to my site, so I expect to be posting a lot more now!
I just implemented an IndieAuth server for Aperture, which sounds crazy but it's actually pretty cool. Now you can log in to apps like https://indiepaper.io and they can post content directly into a private channel!
If you have an Aperture account, try logging in to Quill using https://aperture.p3k.io as your URL. Here's a little demo of it in action!
Since I knew I wouldn't be able to get a good video/photo of the eclipse, and that plenty of other people would be taking good photos, I decided to make a video of all of us watching the eclipse instead!
We found a nice spot about 30 miles south of Portland, went with a group of 4, met up with 6 others, biked along with several hundred other bikers and landed at this riverbank as the eclipse was starting.
This video is from the ~5 minutes around the peak of the eclipse, sped up about 1000x because you really don't want to watch this in real time. We had about 45 seconds of total blackout at our location. I think my favorite part is the crazy sounds everyone made! Thanks to everyone who came along!
