He's trying to hide his excitement for the official pixelfed mobile app!
If you'd like to participate in our mobile app alpha, make sure you follow this account and boost this post.
Why did we suddenly add custom content warnings?
No reason, not like it was influenced by an official mobile app or anything 😉 #pixelfed
Custom content warnings/spoiler text is now supported across our web UI, mobile apis and federation activities! #pixelfed
How can I improve the https://fediverse.info people directory?
I have a few ideas:
- Allow registration via statuses that contain hashtag topics so you don't need to pollute your bio
- User avatars (held off on this as it would require moderation)
- Topic intersection (group results by multiple topics)
- Filter by instance/domain
- Use localStorage to keep track of profiles you seen to show fresher results
Is there any interest in an official Pixelfed hosting service?
Pay as low as $5/month for your own instance with an export feature to easily migrate your data to your own server down the road if you choose.
This could help fund development and our other initiatives like https://fediverse.info!
First impressions are everything!
We're redesigning instance landing pages, some highlights include:
✨ Modern design
⚡ Feature overview
✨ Customizable text fields
⚡ About page w/ custom html
✨ Improved Onboarding
⚡ Clearer instance rules
We want your feedback, admins please let us know what you want or would like to see!
Boosts appreciated! #pixelfed
One week ago I launched https://fediverse.info
Since then, 515 people registered and have been added to 1800+ topics!
Discovery is important, and while we strive to fill this void, our ultimate goal is to help standardize discovery across the fediverse.
PixelFed is one of the types of server that make up the Fediverse
You can follow PixelFed accounts from Mastodon, you might even be doing so already without realising it, because from within Mastodon they will look like any other account. (For example @connyduck is a PixelFed account)
You can get a PixelFed account yourself by signing up on a PixelFed server. There's a list of servers to join at https://fedidb.org/software/pixelfed, but unfortunately they don't currently tell you anything about how one server differs from another, so you'll have to rely on word of mouth.
There's no official app for PixelFed released yet (though there is one in testing), but you can use PixelFed accounts through Mastodon apps.
Direct Messages still use the old UI, we've been working on a Metro 2.0 design optimized for both desktop or mobile browsers and light or dark mode!
Also we included a privacy warning similar to Mastodon!
We're looking into encrypted direct messages and look forward to working with other projects on this important endeavour!
