I’d take this moment to say I’m strongly considering a major overhaul of Amaroq as there’s a lot of features and functionality with the core Mastodon experience that this app has lagged behind on greatly, to a point where I just would like to play around with a fresh slate at least on the UI/UX side of things. Plus there’s so much I’ve learned since then on topics of accessibility and localization that I feel many portions of the codebase could be built to be more maintainable/extendable.
Remember, open source means you can compile your own version if you don’t like the upstream. It absolutely does not mean you get to cajole the authors into including your own pet features.
As a hypothetical, suppose a fediverse client bans Nazis but you want a version that enables them. Download, modify, and compile that sucker! It’s open source: do what you think needs to be done. But you literally have no right to insist the author makes a pro-nazi precompiled version available for download.

Gab is a website by nazis who spent millions of cash (scammed from fellow nazis under the pretense of building BLOCKCHAIN TWITTER, a promise they went back on immediately after they got money) and years of time to build a php piece of shit that is overran with porno spambots and yet has fewer users than large fediverse instances.
They‘ve now realized they‘re too incompetent to make software and are spending months to get software written by jews, gay trans furries and antifascists to run.
#Amaroq for Mastodon v1.1.13 update: finally got around to implementing the much better toot push relay introduced in v2.4 of the platform (much thanks to @WAHa_06x36 helping pioneer that and open sourcing his server app!). Notifications are now sent encrypted and I got to gut out Firebase. We all win!
