Looking at their all platforms one is why I realized I needed to take the dive and learn android development.

Overall windows is trending downward, nearly all at the expense of android.

God I hate webdev. And its even that much more unbearable without typescript.

I’ve created one, called Jerboa. !jerboa@lemmy.ml

But the list of updated lemmy apps is here: https://join-lemmy.org/apps

Had to do with a gradle version, I pinged them about re-enabling it. Its also on IzzyOnDroid 's repos.

This, they’re probably using an old version.

Also there’s !jerboa@lemmy.ml

If you have time, they are going to release the pad 6 soon, so the you could go with that, or a discounted pad 5. The only other tablet I was considering, was the lenovo p11 or p12 pro.

I also really wanted there to be a good arm linux device with great battery life, but there’s just none yet. Android has become the most popular OS worldwide for better or worse, but at least unlike windows or mac, there are open source variants, and its possible to run it without google play services. Android also has probably a far greater number of open source apps than even linux does too.

I’ve been using a xiaomi tablet (pad 5) to do everything for the past year and a half or so: code(via termux), watch movies, write, etc. It’s cheap, has great battery life, perfect screen size, auto brightness adjust, video calls.

You might be able to load an aosp variant onto it, but I haven’t tried. Having that native android app ecosystem means you can use less battery wasting web apps too, something not possible with linux atm.

I think its a good idea obvi. Its a collision between the microblogging / twitter-style that masto and pleroma employ(that have no title, only a body), vs the link-aggregator style (which has a title, and an optional body).

Both platforms should try to resolve the missing fields in whatever way possible, even if that means extrapolating bodies to titles and vice versa.

If you could open an issue on lemmy ui, I can get to it at some point. I’ve been working on jerboa, the android app over the holidays mainly though.

It’s unfortunate, but we usually see the biggest growth when communities are forced to migrate when they get booted off other platforms.

Lemmy as a whole is still missing the community engagement necessary for people to want to start migrating on their own. The snowball hasn’t started rolling down the hill yet, but we’ll get there.

Yep, some accounts tweet like 30 times a day, just subscribing to a few accounts can be a full time job.

Twitter does a decent job of filtering out a lot of that noise and showing more viral posts that accounts I follow liked. Of course they also slam in advertising, and the rage-inducing “engagement” posts too.

When I upgrade lemmy-ui to a newer version of bootstrap, I’ll likely auto-generate the themes, and they won’t have as many issues.

In the meantime tho, I just have too much other work to do than to maintain themes.

Seems vice only mentioned mastodon once way down in the article, and mostly dismissed it.

You ever heard of National Security Letters?

NSLs typically contain a nondisclosure requirement forbidding the recipient of an NSL from disclosing the FBI had requested the information.[2] The nondisclosure provision must be authorized by the Director of the FBI, and only after he or she certifies “that otherwise there may result a danger to the national security of the United States; interference with a criminal, counterterrorism, or counterintelligence investigation; interference with diplomatic relations; or danger to the life or physical safety of any person.”

HarmonyOS isn’t really an android competitor tho right? Its not that much different from MIUI, mostly just an android skin.

Matrix / element or XMPP. I’ve been using it for years now both for friends / fam, and for group chats.

At the moment, I switch to my user menue, switch to Preferences and to Blockings. There I enter the name of the respective community.

That is how you block communities yes. The next update also has a button to block them from the community page itself.

You always see car dealerships do this too, to advertise all the cars they’re not selling. Such a waste of energy and pointless light pollution.

This was just a UI choice to only show one block button, you could open up a github issue on lemmy-ui for this.

I might add multiple views types to both lemmy-ui and jerboa at some point. Jerboa already has a card view, but it could be improved.

We don’t have any data exporting yet, but there is an open issue on the github. In the meantime you can just use the API: https://join-lemmy.org/api/classes/LemmyHttp.html#getPosts

This is what they tell you. Since signal isn’t self-hostable or federated, you can’t verify that.

There is no guidelines for the vote / preference buttons. Use it however you see fit, in whatever way you like!

Lemmy’s sorting algorithm is here: https://join-lemmy.org/docs/en/about/ranking.html

I do the same. It really is the best solution that’s fullly E2EE, and doesn’t require you to host a server.

Android tablet, current one is a xiaomi pad 5. Portable bluetooth keyboard. Strong phone / tablet stand from amazon.

Since I code remote, all I need to do that is termux, and occasionally bvnc for android dev, since they force you to use android studio ide. I have the vim plugin there tho, so a mouse isn’t necessary.

It works fine too, I can work in a lot more spaces without a mouse (like just a tiny lap desk). I can and do code outdoors a lot because of the smart screen brightness adjustment android has.

I’ve been helping code this site for the last year or so on an android tablet ( I code using remote vim so why not ). I got tired of waiting for arm / risc laptops, wanted some good battery life, and to ditch the mouse too.

I’ve been coding the site you’re using for the last year or so on an android tablet. They’re fine for productivity.

Reddit just added a default on “presence” indicator. You have to go into settings to turn it off.
