Some people have reported problems installing Mastodon v2.8.1 due to gem compilation.

This and a few other small bugs have been fixed in #Mastodon v2.8.2:

#Mastodon v2.8.1 is out 馃帀

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

Among numerous fixes, there are very nice changes around how sensitive media is displayed

What's new:

* You can now customise the colour of of the different styles. You can even have different colours for each instance!
* Reply markers are now used on the main timelines too, to more easily see which toots have replies, or are replies.
* There are now link preview on the main timelines, too.
* You can pick the type of keyboard to use. The default social media style keyboard is also slightly more clever and will often insert two new lines when you press return.
* Bugfixes!

Toot! v1.2 is finally out! This took far longer than I had planned, but it is out!

You can get it here if you do not already have it: itunes.apple.com/us/app/toot/i

Also, the real reason this took so long to finish was that I put far, far too much effort into creating this colour picker. Figuring out a good touch interface, re-balancing the HSV wheel and triangle...

Considering releasing it on its own as a separate app after all that work!

@JPEG Have you thought about syncing timeline position to iCloud so when you pickup iPad after using Mast on iPhone (or vice versa) for awhile it jumps to where you left off instead of having to scroll and sync 19 toots at a time manually?

I made something for Mastodon: A gallery mini-app.

source.joinmastodon.org/Gargro

You can simply drop it in your Mastodon server's public folder, and it will show images from your server in a mosaic grid with infinite scroll. Supports some configuration as well, e.g. whether to limit it to only local images, or a specific hashtag, or which server to fetch from.

Don't let Google News decide which stories you see, control your own news with RSS:

switching.social/ethical-alter

Also, did you know you can follow any Mastodon account through RSS?

Just add ".rss" to the end of the account's address, for example:

mastodon.at/@switchingsocial.r

#RSS #News #NewsFeeds #DeleteGoogle #DeleteGoogleNews

So... remember how I said I'm taking the weekend off development? Well... I couldn't resist. I've now started work on the Mast iPad app.

Right now, if I enable iPad support in Mast, everything just looks bloated like this. I know that other apps suffice with this but it's not what I want at all which is why I haven't enabled it. I'm aiming towards a more multi-column web-like experience for the iPad.

This is four evenings worth of work. It's now submitted. 馃帀

@JPEG My instance jenkins.cc is on v2.5.2 of Mastodon.

In essence, Mastodon is a decentralized, open source social network. This is the jenkins.cc instance - just one part of that network - which is run for my own personal use.
