I made something for Mastodon: A gallery mini-app.
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.
@Gargron cool! Is it available on m.s?
@rysiek Uhhh if you give me a few minutes, it will be
@Gargron hah, no pressure, was just curious!
@Gargron Awesome! Where can we view a little demo?
@Gargron so much furry art i love this already
@Gargron Wow! Inspiring to see these works. Very cool!
@Gargron how can someone implement that in its own instance?
@tursiops See link in OP
@Gargron thanks I should have scrolled a bit more ;)
@Gargron well now...that's kinda swanky. Good stuff!
Using the Falkon browser, I only get a limited number of images. When I try it using MastaLab on my phone, I get a lot of images that don't show up on the browser version.
@Gargron Seems to work fine under Firefox. I wonder what the problem with Falkon/QupZilla is.
@Gargron love it!
@ekaitz_zarraga Yeah! Except mastodon.art isn't hardcoded, it's a mosaic grid instead of square thumbnails, and it uses React instead of Clojure
@Gargron We should mix them together!
@ekaitz_zarraga You definitely have a cooler name for it than just gallery
@Gargron The name is GPL too ;)
@Gargron Actually, since the latest change it points to mastodon.social :D
@Gargron Ok that's super fucking cool
@Gargron Nice work. Is this a feature that will be available to all?
@Gargron Is the visibility of the toots considered? Eg are only media showed from public toots?
Thanks for the clarification.
@Gargron Very cool, and great example of whats possible with the Mastodon API!
@Gargron WOWWWW!! 💕
@Gargron super cool!
It looks great on an Android tablet.
@Gargron You can code for Mastodon?? I mean... Could I if I wanted to? That's radical. I'm new to this social network and coding something for Twitter or Facebook would be just a dream. Is it possible to ADD things to the network?
Mastodon federates using the ActivityPub protocol, as does Pleroma, Peertube, plume, and pixelfed. Anyone with the appropriate skills can build their own social network that communicates with the rest of the fediverse using ActivityPub: https://www.w3.org/TR/activitypub/
You can also contribute code to mastodon itself through github: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon
@zundan Sure, i will
@Gargron Looks good. Thank you.
