Hey, so... I'm working on a Mastodon client for . Specifically, (yep, that means UWP).

I am a bear. This network is elephant-themed. There's only one logical name I could come up with. So I called it Heffalump.

I'll be opening beta testing soon-ish, so if you're on Windows 10 Creator's Update (build 15063) or higher and you wanna test it out, let me know. Also posting this over on the birdsite.

Heffalump + lack of motivation 

I took a few greatly needed days off from working on Heffalump but now I'm at the point where I'm trying to find motivation to work on the next part of it. It's super hard to find that motivation right now. Maybe I'll do some extra stuff tomorrow, but I just don't know yet.

Ugh, the new project burnout, it's already hitting me hard.

OK, Heffalump 0.9 is now going out to the Store. Still trying to convince myself to work on the toot details view. And the parser. I may work on the parser first.

Heffalump 0.9 is currently waiting to go through Windows Store certification. In the meantime, 0.10 already has zoom controls in the image viewer. Which is pretty nice I guess.

I think the next thing is the toot detail view, but that feels like so much work. Also, I've got to work on the a toot builder that both strips out the HTML and replaces it with the proper links and custom emojis.

oof, I have a lot of shit that still needs to be done.

Henlo. So I'm working on some new stuff for Heffalump later this week, but here's a recent look. If you're a Windows 10 user looking to test a native Mastodon client, DM me! I'll probably be adding new people in the next couple of weeks.

Why yes, I AM the person that goes to a party and changes the channel to "The Golden Girls"

I'm also testing a very slick Windows client when I haven't even seen anyone post about a macOS client yet, and that is _also_ making me cranky. >.>

god, I have GOT to stop refactoring this damn app.

BUT IT FEELS SO GOOOOOOOD.

Heffalump 0.8.2 has been submitted containing UI and core refactoring. Maybe I can get another feature or two done this weekend.

So I did a major refactor of Heffalump over the last couple of days.

Is it ever-so-slightly more complex? Yes.

Does it help with performance? Sure, we'll go with that.

Will it be better for the app in the long run? God, I fuckin' hope so.

Adding Ctrl+Enter support to the compose window in Heffalump because I like using my keyboard, OK?

stop judging me.

I love how in the early seasons of , Skinner is like, "Mulder, you're a fuckin' nut but you do good work, so just get the fuck outta my office." Then by the end of the series, he's looking at Doggett like, "Son, you don't understand. I have SEEN some SHIT."

@zunderscore It's a privilege to share this communion with my fellow man, tbh.
