One caveat, I think one feature we need sooner than later is a bit more work on federation. I wrote the above 12 hours ago and it still isn't showing up on the main instance, and as an admin I don't really know why or how to get it to transfer properly.
Thanks for the shout-out, man!
I think that all lotide needs at this moment is a critical mass of users. It seems to do everything I want it to, and I think it's really cool that it integrates properly with other ActivityPub sites such as mastodon so it doesn't have to be an ivory tower.
I suspect that as time goes on and as more users pile in there'll need to be different tools for moderation and administration, but a lot of sites start with much less than this and grow to be huge -- we just need to get butts in chairs so to speak so they can start using this great tool.
Thanks! Much of the credit goes to vpzom for building something that's extremely straightforward to modify.
I posted a copy of the css file on narwhal.city that's the default lotide color scheme but scales properly on mobile. lotide itself looks ok on desktop but becomes basically unusable on mobile.
I'm subbed to GoldAndBlackReddit both here and on my pleroma instance.
"We're only going after the rich!"
Sure you are.
(I hate to mention it, but check out my instance at https://lotide.fbxl.net/ where I have set up a dark mobile friendly theme)
The second time is for having a light theme only website that isn't friendly with mobile. :P
(Seriously though, sucks when that happens. I didn't know you could make beds for the longest time because it was earlier on so every time I'd die it would be like "Crap, now I have to start over, what are the odds I'm near my corpse?")
This video was interesting and hilarious. I do user interface design as a hobby and professionally, and little decisions can have a big effect on the usability of a UI.
Added the following to the 9th line because some of the input boxes don't presently scale:
One change I made to my own instance, the 6th line I changed from:
display: none; /* TODO still show this somewhere */
That will have it so when you're on a small screen like a smart phone the community box will display above the posts.
My kingdom for an edit button! I didn't realize until after I set up the code style sheet that I needed a few more line spaces.
