@edsu @mhashemi I see, thanks for the clarification. Hoping to see it go live soon on /the/ one MediaWiki instance we all love :-)

via Echofon in reply to edsu

@edsu @mhashemi Assuming RCStream is the umbrella term for all recent changes streaming APIs, then yes. WebSockets & SSE it is!

via Echofon in reply to edsu

@edsu @mhashemi My no. 1 wish, tho, would be a streaming API of page views of various @Wikimedia projects, e.g., of @Wikipedia & @wikidata.

via Echofon in reply to edsu

@edsu @mhashemi Thanks for sharing, hadn’t heard of it. I offer an SSE API wikipedia-edits.herokuapp.com/sse (cURL it); native WebSocket would be cool.

@ldodds [Was assuming you knew ;-), no offense!] For many (think CMS), it’s already hard to add meta tags, not to speak of HTTP headers…

via Echofon in reply to cpedrinaci

@ldodds Note: HTTP HEAD != HTML <head>. The docs say to return only the subset of the HTML that contains the meta tags. Ugly, but working.
