First off, a reminder that you don't have to be a member of the Sunbeam City coop or even our Mastodon instance to edit the #SunbeamWiki! Anybody who wants to contribute is welcome to
That said, if you're not sure where to start, here are some pages/sections in need of some love:
• The food/farming page needs resources on goats, veganism, cooking, and food preservation https://wiki.sunbeam.city/doku.php?id=food_farming
• The technology page needs resources on radio, and can always use more cool software (dat, for instance, isn't represented) https://wiki.sunbeam.city/doku.php?id=technology
• The energy page currently has no resources on sustainable or DIY energy storage https://wiki.sunbeam.city/doku.php?id=energy
• If you have a link you think is helpful but don't know where to put it/are too nervous to mess with the formatting, you can drop it on our link dumping ground page https://wiki.sunbeam.city/doku.php?id=link_dumping_ground
Please boost! Let's make our wiki the most comprehensive #solarpunk resource on the web
Also, the wiki working group on our Loomio is open to anyone, if you want to discuss or call votes on major changes to the wiki!
@socalledunitedstates out of curiosity, why not rewrite the "doku.php?" out of the URLs?
@trwnh Because I didn't know you could do that
@socalledunitedstates do you need help doing so? if so, let me know whether you are running nginx or apache.
@trwnh Oh I thought you meant I could link them without that. The people in charge of the actual coding would be the tech action squad, there's a list of them on the wiki
@socalledunitedstates ahhh okay, understood now! i'll go bother them about it instead :)
@puffinus_puffinus how about it? who's in charge of the sunbeam city wiki's server configs? it should be trivial to rewrite the "doku.php?id=" out of URLs.
Hi! I can ask people with access to the server. I just work on the wiki admin side of things. How are you expecting to make links look instead?
Oh neat, okay. Is it pretty straightforward? And will it break links that are currently configured the original way?
@puffinus_puffinus nope! the links will be rewritten by nginx transparently. so for example, this
would turn into this
and loading either link would take you to the same page (displayed as the latter)
It sounds good. Currently, the doku.php bit is a little awkward. I'll get in touch with the people with server access. Are you offering guidance on how it's done?
Nice, thanks. I'll pass it on. Thanks again for your help!
@socalledunitedstates fwiw this is my nginx config (pic 1), with the indented part being taken directly from the arch wiki if you'd like to copy/paste that into your config: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/DokuWiki#nginx
@socalledunitedstates i'm interested in sunbeam city. I'm gonna start by reading through the wiki.
@drawfish Would recommend
@socalledunitedstates dat is now represented.
@abrahms Do you think instant messaging is the best place for it? I don't know much about it, but my first thought was putting it under the p2p section https://wiki.sunbeam.city/doku.php?id=technology#peer-to-peer_software
@socalledunitedstates Whoops, I meant for it to go in media publishing, actually.
Sunbeam City is a Libertarian Socialist solarpunk instance. It is ran democratically by a cooperative of like-minded individuals.
