i'm creating a client and just bumped into this, because from the spec, i assumed there could be no spaces
admittedly i didn't read mime's rfc
Good day all
it might be something worth clarifying in the spec tbh
(the mimetype thing, not the controversial thing :P)
tomasino: that's the concusion i've come to
akspecs: i don't know of any tildes or pubnixes that encourage that sort of thing, but i don't know all of them. if you're thinking of being that extreme your best bet is probably to self-host your capsule, though
according to my MIME type parser (which admittedly was written to the MIME Sniffing Living Standard and not the MIME RFC) "text/gemini;lang=en" and "text/gemini; lang=en" are equivalent
yeah, i guess it evolved that way and clients are expected to be tolerant
solderpunk's own demo server crashes on anything with more than 1 space
"status, mime = header.split()"
bunburya: right, thanks
looking at 5.2 Parameters of the spec and https://tildegit.org/solderpunk/molly-brown/src/branch/master/handler.go#L255 it looks like other servers at least use a <space> between different mime params
mimetype = type '/' subtype *(';' parameter)
from the spec on gitlab
parameter := attribute "=" value
(mimetype being the <META> that is appropriate for 20 responses, of course)
i was under the impression that meta could not have any spaces
akspecs: what subjects? :p
is 20 text/gemini; lang=en; compatible with <STATUS><SPACE><META><CR><LF>?
ew0k: let's assume something incredibly controversial
is there a community that encourages discourse on such subjects?
nomn: if self plugs are okay, then my gemlog is gemini://warmedal.se/~bjorn/ 😄
akspecs: that really depends on what kind or level of controversy you mean
well thats kicked off a thought for me, I was about to say "my tilde or my upcoming one" but then I had to think of how controverisal and what would I actually accept
I should probably write a terms of service
does anyone know where in the tildeverse (or broader gemini space) is a place that doesn't mind (somewhat) controversial capsules?
i'll try lagrange and see if it has a slicker bookmark ui than ariane
midnight.pub is fun too
oh, and self-plug: cosmic.voyage!
i just tried lagrange yesterday - it is gorgeous
another is from the guy who created lagrange (an excellent gemini browser written in C with beautiful font rendering)
thanks akspecs, bookmarked
nomn: they have been growing quite rapidly as of lately
if you think you'd benefit from a foss guru, i enjoy drew devault's capsules
What would you say are some prominent capsules I should follow? I'm new to gemini
I would prefer my gemini content not be indexed by google.
If you want to go through the trouble of putting my gemini site as blocked in your robots.txt through your http->gopher proxy
if you don't, I'm fine dropping packets on my end.
khuxkm: thanks for the tips!
