Since November 2016, I work as a Front-end developer and senior Web Consultant at Deloitte Digital in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Current interests: IndieWeb, Vue.js, SOLID, RDF, Linked Data, decentralization, …

I am happily married to Erica. We are the parents of a wonderful little boy, Nathan.

I bike to work whenever I can, even when it rains.

I love to study new stuff. I like sci-fi movies and books and read mostly non-fictional literature.


the on my site where I had wrongly configured the ``url`` in the ``config.ini`` file.
My web server error is full of these useful and informative messages:

> Backend log: Known ( warning - Base URL has defaulted to "/" because Known was unable to detect your server name. This may be because you're loading Known via a script. Try setting url="" in your config.ini to remove this message\n, referer:


Got a Pi 3 b+ today!
Finally got the device and I'm setting it up as a home . Going to set up and use it as a Bluetooth-to-internet gateway. Installed firstly Raspbian and got the ssh access working.


Trying to set up and on this instance. Checking the "IndiePub" section of the server and getting stuck at:

> IndiePub Accounts
> There are currently no IndiePub accounts associated with this site.

When I try to login in using the site I keep getting this error:

> "" does not match the logged in user "/profile/johan".

Also tried with the URL:

> "" does not match the logged in user "/profile/johan".

And I'm stuck. Not sure what to do.

Can't find anything on the Github repo project for Known:


Seems like the theme does not render the app as a single-page application.
My or is to check if a spa theme for known exists, or if not, create the theme myself. The use-case of the Known server should be that most users access it through mobile. Right?
That way we can ping the Known instance to the Android home screen and it'll feel more like a native app.


Installed Known on!
