re: COVID-19 Tracker web-monetized with News from WHO API ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿš€ VIEW POST


Very cool, @itshally @krishnadevz.

Is it really necessary for the Stop / Start call-to-action? ie. if I'm a Web Monetization provider member (Coil or other) then starting monetization automatically seems like something I'd want. It took me a while to realise that I had to hit 'start' โ€” when one of the attractions of Web Monetization is that it happens automagically in the background without any thinking if indeed I am a member.

However if I wasn't a member perhaps there would be more info/call to action to consider becoming a member explaining all the extra features that you would unlock?


Yes, that is necessary to click the start button but before that, we have to install Coil browser extension in the browser then after logging in then we can click on the start button then we are able to see exclusive contents/News. but if we don't have coil extension install/ installed with not login then that is not going to work means then one message show like this Current Monetization State: Not enabled in browser and in-browser like edge where coil extension is not yet available app look like this โคต
so that's all about description if you're not a member of a coil with extension then you can see basic tracker but for the more updates like news from WHO we have to enable coil with a login that's all.
Thank you ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘‹
hally can also describe more welcome to thread @itshally


Hey, so yeah, I agree that we should apply a brief description of what a Web Monetization provider can unlock when they click the Start button. In that case, it will give them an idea of what they can unlock. Thank you for the feedback!

However, we want to welcome everybody especially those people who aren't a web monetization provider to see our project. We don't want to hide this graph because awareness is important. But since reading those News that we displayed from WHO is a reason to stay for a long time, then we find it reasonable for Web Monetization provider to activate the Start button.

then we find it reasonable for Web Monetization provider to activate the Start button.

@itshally โ€” A provider (Coil) doesn't decide to stop/start the stream. The content/site owner decides this by quickly checking and detecting if Web Monetization has started. This should/could be instant if true, rather than making the end user click start. See Start/Stop example.

hello there now @itshally updated web monetization code so basically now I opened our app then I am having coil extension also then I logiedIn also but I don't membership from a coil so I am not able to see content but hally signup for free because hackathon provides that for users and now we added new cards also check view below and once visit our app website

you can check it out what changes we made on the app also or livepreview to thanks for the reply have good day

Nice update, folks. That bit is now working smoothly and I was aurtomatically streaming when I visited the site.

Some messaging when not a member would like be a good next update candidate (I visited on a browser that I don't have the extension installed).

We just realized the mistake that was going on our project after your feedback, that's why I want to say thank you for enlightening us as well ๐Ÿ˜„

No 'mistakes' or right or wrong, @itshally @krishnadevz. I'm glad that you're experimenting with different techniques. This is all so new โ€” so kudos to you both for taking the plunge.

Thank you have a good day ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™
