@nolan Pinafore is amazing! 👏
@hugo non-free apps (put app at work is GPL tho) can offer some benefits to volunteers like free subscriptions or promotion codes or something like that. When it's OSS it's easier of course. I didn't realize about which apps you've been talking about first.
I haven't made much progress with #Tooty recently, apart from registering the domain names and setting up app redirects. Still a lot to do..
I'm heading to a conference on Saturday, so maybe I'll have a bit of time there to smash out some tasks.
The biggest thing I need to add before giving out a beta will be an API for app client credentials, so the app doesn't have to store individual client credentials for every instance it tries to connect to... Might be a better way to approach this tho
I'm just trying out Pinafore for Mastodon and wow is it so much faster than the default (at least on my Surface Go!)
Most apps from larger companies (e.g. Spotify) have great translations, bar a few less used parts of the app, but most of my favourite indie apps rarely have any localisation at all.
It can be really costly to support other languages, and I doubt it nets much extra profit, but it’d be nice to see devs putting in the extra effort.
Friend: Are you OK? You haven't posted on Instagram in ages
Me: I quit FB, Instagram, and Twitter.
Friend: Why'd you quit the internet?
Me: Actually I've *rejoined* the Internet.
Next time someone asked me why did I leave the internet, I'm gonna say I'm still very much on the Internet. When are *you* coming back?
