Any idea what the "statuses" attribute on the "Announcement" object is for? https://docs.joinmastodon.org/entities/announcement/ @Claire @Gargron @ars42525 #tuskydev
apparently, the reason why @Tusky was succumbing to Unicode Bidi exploits (e.g. forcing text outside of usernames, etc. to display right-to-left) was not because they weren't trying to do things right, but because Google's Unicode implementation is just wrong. huge thanks to @Tak for fixing it in the code after I helped point out how to fix this!
Does it make sense like this? I fear not
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.
@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.
