@bleakgrey Ooooooh. This excites me c:
@ninmi Already there!
@bleakgrey Fantastic! Hope someone jammed it in AUR already.
@ninmi I don't think so because the app is relatively young
@cagatayy has built a Flatpak though: https://mastodon.social/@cagatayy/100095618840738370
@drequivalent At the moment I'm not aware of an API to get the supported character limit, sorry
@drequivalent @bleakgrey It's not some reason, I've stated it multiple times: I don't think the basic UX should be different between instances, so people can choose based on community and policies rather than who has the best features. At the same time, I don't think that anything above 500 characters should still be considered a microblog, you're better off writing an article and linking to it. Why even have a limit if everyone's gonna change it? Think about the people who're going to read it.
> Think about the people who're going to read it.
That's exactly what I do. I've heard enough of complaints about my multipart posts when I explain something complex, that I had to raise the limit.
Besides, long form posts will be on the Fediverse whether @Gargron likes it or not, and Mastodon'd better prepare and correct the UI around this cold hard fact of life.
@njoseph Yes, it does :)
@se7entime Flatpak is planned for 1.0 :)
@falgn0n I use whalebird but too slow on my computer...
@bleakgrey I made an #Gentoo ebuild, if anyone is interested: https://schlomp.space/tastytea/overlay/src/branch/master/net-misc/tootle/tootle-0.1.3-r4.ebuild
@ernmander Which notifications do you mean?
@bleakgrey The ones within Elementary OS notification centre. Tootle appears there with all notifications switched on but those notifications don't show within the OS's notifications
@ernmander It works for me :/
Check your eOS notification settings and make sure bubbles, sounds and notification center are enabled for Tootle.
@bleakgrey I'll re-toggle the buttons and see if that makes any difference. Just out of interest do notifications also ping up when Tootle is closed? Thank you for the replies by the way.
@ernmander It receives notifications in background only if "Always receive notifications" is enabled in settings.
You're always welcome :3
@bleakgrey cool thank you. a re-toggle of the buttons seemed to work, got that reply as a notification in notification centre. :)
