Reports are now finished in the new @pixelfed mobile app!

This was one of those small but essential todo items.

You may be surprised to know that Apple and Google require the ability to report user generated content if you have user generated content in your app

There are also other requirements, like hiding adult content by default and allowing users to block other users on social network apps.

Looking forward to shipping the app, gosh it's like so close!!!

One of the challenging aspects of building a federated mobile app is parsing post captions and being able to render them properly

See, when you make a post with mentions or hashtags, mastodon converts it to HTML and mobile apps have to deconstruct that HTML to be able to render mentions, hashtags and links properly

We could just render the HTML, but when you would tap on a hashtag or mention, it would open the browser instead of in-app

Indices and entity maps ftw, thanks backend!

dansup OP ,
@dansup@mastodon.social avatar

@captainchaos Well, its more complicated than that.

Mastodon and Pixelfed do provide mentions and hashtags as lists in the federated activity, you can't just trust the HTML itself because not every platform uses the same attributes

We can use the mention/hashtag lists to build the entitymap with indices we can provide to clients so they can properly implement deep linking

The Pixelfed backend should separate Comments/Replies to it's own table/model

This won't be an easy undertaking, but it will improve performance and enable a better comments API with proper pagination

I will start this process now, as I'm in the middle of shipping the Groups feature which will also require new tables/models accordingly.

I promise it will be done properly, with no breakage

It may seem boring to most ppl, but I love technical challenges like this

Not sure why safari suddenly renders Mastodon advanced mode UI so poorly, I just accidentally boosted a post when tapping on the favourite button

I know this isn't a Mastodon bug because it's fine on Chrome and Firefox

shakes fist at Safari

dansup OP ,
@dansup@mastodon.social avatar

@JSharp1436 I use Chrome for this account, I've been using Safari to keep my @pixelfed account open so I kinda need it

I despise Firefox, I'd rather figure out the issue with Safari

The new Pixelfed mobile app will preserve media aspect ratios, no need to tap to view the full image as photos will be rendered to preserve native aspect ratios😎

Just finished adding like, reply, and report features to comments in the new Pixelfed app!

I’m proud of the progress I’m making, just a few lil things to wrap up before it’s ready for the beta release 😁

(Then I can get back to Groups, Loops, PubKit and Sup)

@dansup sorry... you are not on matrix anymore... so i have to write here.

you promised, to the end of last week, you will fix the federation-problem with friendica.
I've just updated my pixelfed-instance an comments from friendica are still not shown on pixelfed.

and... why don't you create a new matrix-room for pixelfed?

I'm so happy to see Gargron living his best life, he's done so freakin' much for the fediverse

It's so heartwarming to see him travel around the world with his wifey, that iconic Mastodon plushie (omg I want one), and his photography from all those places

He totes deserves all this success and more, and I look forward to the day that we can meet in person, he is my hero

I have a ton of small things to finish before I can ship the new Pixelfed app, that being said I do want to get it in your hands ASAP

I’m planning to release an alpha build APK this weekend (some things may not fully work yet, but you will have a chance to see the huge improvements and help provide feedback)

dansup OP ,
@dansup@mastodon.social avatar

And by small things I mean non-essential features like viewing who you blocked, or accepting follow requests.

While they are important to finish before the public release, being able to have an early preview and provide feedback will help me a lot!

dansup OP ,
@dansup@mastodon.social avatar

@karelbrits Yeah that will be fixed in the backend this weekend, over eager caching is the culprit!

Oh man, the new Pixelfed app keeps getting better and better!

I’m now finishing up Push Notifications support, which is the most requested feature besides share intents (which I shipped earlier tonight)

Not only is it fast, lightweight and open source, but also packed with many long overdue features like Push Notifications 😎

It’s everything you wanted, plus more ✨

dansup OP ,

@shlee Yes! Android alpha this weekend 👀

dansup OP ,
@dansup@mastodon.social avatar

@brunomiguel @pixelfed Yes, we will default to system color mode (either light or dark) but you will have the option to force a preference, and that color mode preference will be shared across devices and web/apps so you have a consistent experience no matter what option you choose!

dansup OP ,
@dansup@mastodon.social avatar

@brunomiguel @pixelfed We think so too, but it get's even better!

We standardized an API for this so 3rd party apps can implement this too, that way you can use any (supported) app and it will remember your preference!

This goes beyond dark mode btw, there are other settings we remember across apps like the ability to disable CW and show all media, or force yourself to add alt text to media before you can post!

dansup OP ,
@dansup@mastodon.social avatar

@brunomiguel @pixelfed Yes, we have https://translate.pixelfed.org and will be overhauling our translations so the app can share the translation strings!

dansup OP ,
@dansup@mastodon.social avatar

@brunomiguel @pixelfed Oh I see, that looks really nice!

The main colors for dark mode can be found here:

https://github.com/pixelfed/pixelfed/blob/dev/resources/assets/sass/spa.scss#L29-L54

I am refactoring the entire webUI, but for now I'm focused on the mobile app.

I should be able to get to this in a few weeks, so feel free to remind me in mid June about this!

I just want to educate y'all about this specific "scary" warning (that you may see in the Pixelfed app)

Apple Bonjour is a feature that enables seamless connection between your Apple devices

You can safely tap "Don't Allow" without any impact, however, that may limit Handoff support and other Apple features we're planning to implement.

Regardless, you can audit our app code yourself to verify we aren't doing anything sketchy
