As I don't want to deal with fucking Timezones and shit I'll announce it right now.

At my free time at I've made a *proof-of-concept* of a Mastodon Art gallery what I want to give to the community and let you take part on the development if you like.

You can visit it at

Thank you @Curator for the help, the support and for putting it live!!

Merry Christmas!

@Curator I've put Curator's TV in the picture because I'm tooooooo bad taking pictures and my laptop doesn't look that awesome.

And yeah, it has tons of errors in the code (I'm sure) and we have to develop some stuff more, but that's the gift itself. The gift is we can make many things more on top of the technology we have.

That's what I do.


Maybe @Gargron would like this?

@ekaitz_zarraga @Curator

Looks good.

Thank you!

Looks like another reason to promote the tag #mastoart and encourage artists to use it.

Does the art come from any user with the hashtag, no matter which instance?

Will at least the .art instance profile have a notice on the 'about' page?

@Algot @Curator It takes all the toots that can be retrieved from instance but the original toot can come from other instances.

At the moment it's a proof of concept made for fun. I don't know if we should put anything on the about page right now but if the development goes on and we make some cool features we totally will.

@ekaitz_zarraga @Curator

It's a great start.

Does it react only if the toot includes both a hashtag AND an image?

@Algot @Curator Yes, exactly.

If the toot has the hastag and an image it appears. It asks the instance for the toots with the hashtag, and then it filters by those who have an image.


Glad you like it.

@ekaitz_zarraga @Curator Nicely done! I'd gotten out of the habit of using the #mastoart hashtag. Guess I need to fix that for future posts. :)

@maljones @Curator ☺️ ☺️ ☺️

It's imposed by my lack of web design skills :D

Thank you!!!

@ekaitz_zarraga @Curator an easy solution to the 'what if it gets dark or the moon/sun change?' you can just say it in utc or something we come up with. it gets dark at 12 utc for me 'an example'

@ekaitz_zarraga @Curator Do you plan to keep working on it despite it being a proof of concept? Cause I really like it :D

I'll be checking this out a lot, I think :O

@esp @Curator I don't know. I probably will but now it's opensourced (MIT license) so anyone can contribute.
I wanted to make more people realize they can make stuff and they can have impact.

The idea is to make it together. We may make a FULL MASTODON CLIENT with special features for searching and showcasing art.

I fucking said it.

@ekaitz_zarraga @Curator Ah right, I see :) That's certainly the message I got from it, so well done :O

That'd be so awesome, looking forward to that for sure! :O

@esp @Curator You can take part too!!
We need a logo for the project and stuff!!

There's a file in the repo you can check for the things I want to make.

You can also add yours.

@ekaitz_zarraga @Curator As much as I'd like to, my current mental state won't allow me sadly D: I'll be keeping an eye on this for sure though! :O

@esp @Curator Or you can just make some art and make it look more awesome with your stuff on there.


@ekaitz_zarraga @Curator I plan to once the holidays are over :D

That said, Merry Christmas to you too!

@ekaitz_zarraga @Curator This is a brilliant idea! And it’s very nicely done. This is exactly the kind of great thing the community needs

@cypnk @Curator 100 of lines of ClojureScript code can be a lot of magic.

Thank you for your kind words.
Feel free to get into it and add ideas, thoughts, code, suggestions and all of that.


@ekaitz_zarraga where do i report bugs? The banner at the bottom covers the usernames and avatars of the last row

@MightyPork Make scroll?

It has an infinite scroll but I don't promise it to work 100% of the time.

In the banner you can click and visit the gitlab.

Also the in the post you have te gitlab link. Or you can directly go here:

@ekaitz_zarraga I see the link, it works okay. But it's covering the last row. (Maybe you need to make the window smaller to see it. There's no infinite scroll for me)

@ekaitz_zarraga I'd take a screenshot but haven't figured it out on the i3wm lol

@MightyPork If you don't have the infinite scroll it doesn't work well. :D :D

@ekaitz_zarraga @Curator

Have you considered turning this into something like Tumblr's (possibly barely known) TV view?

@grainloom @Curator The idea was to follow Artstation's style.
But I don't know the Tumblr TV view... it might be interesting.
Can you tell me more?

@ekaitz_zarraga @Curator

It's basically a slideshow (only of gifs, but i think that's a pointless limitation) that you can just put on fullscreen, pause, step back and forth and it also lets you like posts from there without stopping the slideshow. (reblogging does go to a different page tho)
