I've got some questions in terms of best practices and things to do, but I couldn't find a way to get any sort of feedback or direction. I ended up asking over at the hypermedia librelist http://librelist.com/browser/hypermedia/ about people's experiences.

Would be great to have a mailing list (librelist is great!) or official irc channel or something to get support and discuss direction.

My 2 cents :)

I have been squatting in #webmachine on Freenode for a while now, if you want to join... so far it's pretty dead, but the more the merrier.

I joined as well but its pretty dead :) I assumed it was for erlang webmachine.

I'm there too, the few people with questions just leave to quickly. Patience! During the UTC day I'm almost always available.

It's always not going to be helpful because it's about the Erlang version, but there is already http://lists.therestfulway.com/mailman/listinfo/webmachine_lists.therestfulway.com

@seancribbs Should we point people to the existing erlang webmachine list, create a new one for webmachine-ruby or just close this? 😉

Also, what about the IRC channel? Into the README?

Contributor

lgierth commented Nov 14, 2012

Regarding the IRC channel, every now and then someone pops in with a question, and there is always someone responding within a reasonable timeframe.

Owner

seancribbs commented Nov 14, 2012

@bernd Notes in the README would be fine. I haven't been on IRC much lately, mostly trying to avoid the #riak channel so I can focus.

I've just started wrapping an app I'm working on in a Webmachine server, and had some questions about how I was going about it. Like @jeregrine I went looking for a mailing list. I think this would be really beneficial – mailing lists have the advantage of being persistent and more of a structured reference archive than IRC. (I'm also learning Celluloid at the moment, and I like browsing old discussions.)

Webmachine seems pretty awesome technically already, and I also think it would benefit from more of an online community space.

How about StackOverflow? Nobody has used the webmachine-ruby tag yet, but once the tag is created, I will happily add the latest questions RSS feed to my feed reader.

👍 to SO for now.

I've just released http://github.com/rgarner/webmachine-actionview and want to tell people about it. I've not ever posted anything to SO and in any case it seems this would come under the heading of "announcement" rather than "question" - doesn't seem to fit SO's use case. Where would be the best place to put something like this?

Contributor

bernd commented Feb 5, 2013

I think it would be nice to have a mailing list for that.

Would anyone object to me setting up a Discourse forum?

Contributor

tarcieri commented Feb 11, 2013

@seancribbs some kinda forum/mailing list seems good bro

Contributor

SebastianEdwards commented Feb 11, 2013

Discourse seems like a decent offering.

Contributor

rgarner commented Feb 11, 2013

Looking forward to trying Discourse out, given that everyone seems to have given up on Usenet for discussion ;)

Contributor

bernd commented Feb 11, 2013

I actually like email but let's give Discourse a try. 😄

Owner

seancribbs commented Feb 11, 2013

So until we get Discourse going (it's not quite ready for Heroku, and will also be pricey to host), I've set up a librelist. Maybe we can try that for now? webmachine.rb@librelist.com

Owner

seancribbs commented Feb 11, 2013

I'd appreciate someone subscribing and pinging the list to make sure it works. 😉

First!

In all seriousness, thanks for setting this up Sean. I've been tinkering
with Webmachine for a side project, and the project will really benefit
from more open discussion.

Cheers,

Jeremy

Now we just need a README change...

... done!

Cool! I've signed up too now. Looking forward to the discussion.

I just discovered that if Librelist receives a bounced email, it silently stops sending you future emails. I thought it was unusual this happened to me as I use Google Apps, but it's worth knowing. It's compounded by the fact that Gmail seems to show sent messages in labels/folders used for lists (even via IMAP), so there's no indication at all messages aren't getting through.

Gitter looks like it could also be useful:
Gitter chat

How is Gitter different from IRC?

You don't need a client.
And you have a history.
