New painting video! This time with oil paint. 🎨🖌️🤎
We just published our 4th release, with a *lot* of changes and improvements.
Go read the changelog and get the APK here:
Send us feedback: open an issue, use the newly integrated crash report utility if you manage to make it crash, or send us a toot on here!
Also check out @ConnyDuck 's Pixelcat, which is already looking great ❤️
Ok its not that fancy. But its better than that scrolly interface in Tusky.
Fancy animation that improves usability? check #pixelcat
wow #Kotlin can now do trailing commas? Nice this already saved me time and I didn't even notice
@ConnyDuck @pixelfed @Mastodon @crossgolf_rebel and for all those early birds who want to try this early (ahem, ahem) bird (?) but also get updates ASAP without actively looking for them everyday, there's… wait (still syncing)… ah, there's:
(Couldn't resist a manual sync, didn't want to let you wait )
Given my current speed with the project that might take some time, since I will definitely not abandon Tusky and I have other hobbies like painting as well.
But now it is public and you can help! How? Download the first build and give me feedback: https://github.com/pixelcatapp/Pixelcat/releases/download/dev1/pixelcat-snapshot1.apk
Read the contribution guidelines https://github.com/pixelcatapp/Pixelcat/blob/develop/.github/CONTRIBUTING.md and get in touch with me if you can contribute code!
So the plan is to implement all the features listed in the repo readme and publish dev snapshots as often as possible. Once thats done there will be a public beta release on @fdroidorg and Google Play.
Note: The dev snapshots will not feature database migrations and thus will need fresh installs to work.
Pixelcat is 100% written in Kotlin and utilizes coroutines for async stuff. I tried to write super readable and concise code but I don't know whether I achieved that. Its now only about 10k lines of code which is not much imho.
I had the idea for #Pixelcat about 2 years ago. The pixelcat.app domain was registered on 22. March 2019 😅
So I am really glad I made it this far, but there is still about 40% missing for a real release.
Funfact: I just wanted to know how to get a gradient behind the status bar and try some new AndroidX libraries, not build a new fediverse client, but one thing lead to another
Pixelcat is a beautiful and fast Android client for the fediverse. It focuses on images and is primarily intended to be used with @pixelfed but it works with @Mastodon and #Pleroma as well (everything that speaks Mastodon api).
#Pixelcat is free and open source (GPLv3). https://github.com/pixelcatapp/Pixelcat
This was funny to read and also quite informative
tl; dr: Don't post your boardingpass on social media
