Did you know that is currently under testing the ability to add custom CSS via the Administration interface https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/pull/8399
If all goes well, soon you will be able to customize your instance design even if you don't have access to the server or you don't want to mess with SCSS🤞
Big thanks to @Gargron
@jemus42 won't affect me much tbh besides being able to deploy changes without doing a whole asset precompile. big for server owners who haven't gotten knee deep in the codebase tho!
@chr yeah I guess modifications like on cybre would be a lot easier and possibly without having to maintain a separate fork
@jemus42 style mods, yeah. we also maintain a couple features and content mods that will still require the fork, plus i'm an old dragon set in my ways and may not even use the new system :P
@luka this was requested to me over and over to find a way to do it via Masto.host, I didn't want to fork the Mastodon repo and do my own version to include this. Much better it can now come to all.
@mastohost yes yes I was requesting this too and I totally get it and yes now this could be awesome :)
@mastohost wouldn't this already be possible with greasemonkey tampermonkey etc. if people want local CSS changes?
@stib yes to individual users but if the admin of an instance wanted to style the instance for everyone the only way would be to do change to the code of Mastodon
