Went out for the first real motorcycle ride of the season on Sunday and we decided to check out the Bahá'í House of Worship just north of the city. Such a beautiful building with truly gorgeous stonework and some of the most well kept gardens and grounds I've seen. Definitely worth the short trip and made even more enjoyable by it being the first time I got to ride with my girlfriend on her bike 😊🏍
Help me, #Mastodon: I'm working with a client, the Bear notes app, on a bunch of their content. In an upcoming version they're adding autocomplete for emoji (kinda like Slack). Preview here: https://twitter.com/BearNotesApp/status/1117812561611763714
Does anyone know if there is some kind of library of emoji names translated into languages other than English? We're trying to localize our emoji autocomplete feature.
#Mastodon 2.8 gets polls, new tools for managing followers, features hashtags on profiles, new frontpage design, new admin features, Keybase integration, and more. http://blog.joinmastodon.org/2019/04/mastodon-2.8/
“The problem is that with this new tool from Apple, well-meaning people with this common, but terrible idea of separate “disability-sites” now can implement it…”
Just imagine if all those #Mastodon users on friends.nico had a simple way to migrate their followees, Lists, mute/block lists, *and followers* to a new instance. I wager this shutdown would be much less of a big deal, if any at all.
Cardhop for iOS was released today and it’s a great contacts app, highly recommended! Been using the beta and I really appreciate the birthday notifications as someone who is slowly but surely moving away from Facebook. It’s set to remind me a week before, so I have time to get gifts, and the day of so I don’t forget to wish them a happy day.
I like to update the giant nerd shelf above my TV once in a while. Made some changes a while back but didn't post anywhere, still really happy with this arrangement. #xpost
Whenever I see Spike Lee in that outfit I think he’s dressed up as Wario. #xpost
have you ever noticed that someone post a screenshot of text without providing an image description, preventing you from being able to read it? or maybe they posted a huge amount of text that just can't possibly be described with the image description feature?
simply tag @OCRbot in a direct reply to the image. it will download the image and scan it using tesseract OCR to output the text contained in the image!
because OCRbot runs on fedi.lynnesbian.space, it has a character limit of 65535, so even the longest images should work OK!
check the reply to this image to see it parsing the attached screenshot!

@JPEG the Toot! App does this really well.
@JPEG are you still working on timeline positioning during updates? Really hard to focus and continue reading when the list jumps when new posts load. Also still sometimes jumps way ahead in the timeline.
