Designing for bad content is as much part of a designer’s job as perfecting the ideal case. Make sure your designs work with content across the full spectrum from “perfect” to “terrible”.

I’ll make my icon set available on my portfolio eventually. Until then, this shot over on Dribbble is a teaser:

Hello together!

If you think “hello together” is English, you are probably German. If you want to improve your English, I’ll show you how over on Till soon!*

(*Also not English.)

Still tweaking (and will keep tweaking forever), but I much prefer the look and feel of these lighter icons.

Now I am wondering if all of those need to go on a “notifications”-screen, or if mentions are sufficient. You can always get to your boosts and favorites via the associated toot, and to your follows via your profile. Aggregating mentions on a dedicated screen could be helpful.

Mastodon-notifications come with one of four possible types: “favourite”, “follow”, “mention”, and “reblog” (which is what “boosting” is called in the API).

I just spent a solid 20 minutes troubleshooting why Xcode kept complaining about not being able to decode the Mastodon-notifications despite the same code working somewhere else.

Turns out I spelled them “notificatons” on one line.

Hi I do this for a living, does anyone need an app.

Where are we at with full color- vs line-icons on iOS? I am not happy with how those came out, but it does reflect the current “Apple style” if you compare them to Apple Music and the App Store.

Had a pretty chill Friday yesterday until someone told me it was Thursday.

My little Mastodon client’s got a long way to go. I am mega happy with where I’m at after day 1. 💪

A few tiny constraints and this is already much nicer. Still with the funky markup, unfortunately.

Alright so I still have to figure out Auto Layout and Stack Views, but this is a solid first try. So funky that the Mastodon-API returns HTML instead of leaving presentation up to the consumers of the API.

There are still punny names for Mastodon-clients out there that have not been used yet! The name of mine will have more…

You’ll get it when I tell you about it, which will probably be soon?

Basically all steps of any new project are hard, but coming up with a good name for it is, well, also a step.

Cooper is helping me by chewing on his blanket. On his trampoline. Dude’s got a good life.

Baby steps, but: countries grouped by region, multi-line labels (MUCH easier than I remember this to be just a few years ago). Turns out SVG in UIKit is… not a thing? Skipping flags then.

Swift-milestone achieved: read data from an API ( here) and display it in custom UITableViewCells. 🎉
