It all started from a tweet from Maha Bali

This was yesterday evening after a long slow chat I initiated in the morning. I slept on it, think about it again during the day and I cam out with this idea to prototype the recap as using a prototype of a feature itself described in a prototype of #WOL process. Let’s play 4 bands billiard.
Doing a recap, great idea, but I was not going to do it on Storify. Outside from objections I have against placing content in rented space there is also the fact that I think Kneaver combined with WordPress can do just the same.
However the feature don’t exists as a simple click. How it could be done and where pieces are missing is what I’m going to explore here. It will act as a very transparent prototype of the feature. It will also show how I design new features. Fits nicely in #ShowYourWork applied to my work. I expect to collect some opinions and feedbacks that I can turn into the prototype. This would eventually produce at first iteration a much better feature d-odesigned with potential users.
This blog is itself a story. It will be updated as I do progress. A kind of Live Blog Posts with new paragraphs as the story unroll. It will be published directly from Kneaver to WordPress. This means that you may have to force the refresh of the page or click the link below to get the new version.
At times, I will encounter some missing functions inside Kneaver. I will let you know with the mention: Objection or Obstacle and I will create an issue on Our github repository. Like this you will be able to track or comments on those issues if you feel they deserve your support.
For those of you not familiar with Kneaver you will also notice names highlighted in blue but with no links beneath. They are pending wikilinks, a feature especially well done in Kneaver that indicate that some more explanations should be written. It’s a promise of more content for you and a restartable point for me.
This update was also done to check that the button below works as expected … can’t wait to try
So I’m going by viewing the archive of my @Core list (a private one) that Kneaver captured. I don’t need to do a search because Kneaver is doing this search every 15 minutes and keep it. This means I have an archive of hashtags searches for years and I don’t depend on online searches.
So I have a page for viewing this archive ( Objection: True but there is no way to add @list in tracking. hashtag and handles are available though). Issue here https://github.com/Kneaver/Kneaver/issues/1
So on this page that you can see I will use the check box on the left to select the tweets I wish to include.
Objection: Check box are not ‘saved’. We need to be able to save the set somewhere like a slate. https://github.com/Kneaver/Kneaver/issues/2
That’s very blocking … only thing I can do it start to build the post manually by placing the links into them.
Meanwhile I’m enhancing the prototype for live blogging. This second update uses KNV:PointType, subitems if you prefer. Easier to manipulate. The button is in its point as well. I’ll write a small template for it.
Obviously preceding post was 24h late
Since I want to use Kneaver for the experience itself I was stuck in challenges inside challenges inside a simple goal. It should get easier from now as the way as been cleared. Stay updated
