So, stuff I’ve been doing this week:

  • Added Visual and Audio captchas when registering. This is now integrated into the API, so lemmy clients can make use of it when registering.
  • Removed browser-stored user settings. Now your language, theme, and all user settings will update on any browser, with just a simple page refresh! IE change your theme on mobile, save it, then go to desktop and refresh the page.
  • Added inferno-helmet, a library like react-helmet to fix page title issues.
  • Made some DB changes around post thumbnails, which now use the full urls (otherwise thumbnails would break with federation).
  • Merged some user bios, thanks to axigi.
  • Changed our deploy procedure to use travis to both run our federation integration suite, and do our production docker builds. (These were taking 30 minutes and locking up my dev machine).
  • Lots of other smaller changes, like making the sidebars in the UI cleaner.

Currently I’m working on re-organizing and adding a lot more federation integration tests, as @nutomic@lemmy.mladds security checks for servers to discard incoming activitypub messages that aren’t validated / fail security checks.

I was mainly busy refactoring our activitypub inbox code, which previously consisted of a 1500 line file. Thats impossible to work with, so I split it up into a couple of shorter files. I also implemented federation for the post sticky flag, and a basic activitypub outbox so that sticky flags are sure to be federated.

Other than that, I was busy reviewing all of @dessalines’ changes, cause he’s really fast to code up new things.

A lot of Reddit clients have a feature that lets your hide, or at least deemphasize posts you’ve clicked already. It would be nice to have something like that to keep my front page a little fresher. Just a dream.

Hello , so far i really enjoy using lemmy. One thing that i came up with and annoys me is that , when i scroll down certain amount of post i need to click on go to the next page. I would prefer much more to just scroll and scroll and scroll without worrying about clicking on next page. It is just minor annoyance , but for me personally it would make my experience way enjoyable.

We don’t have infinite scrolling yet.

Yeah , i wanted to make more of a feature suggestion which would make using lemmy more enjoyable.

did you hide the subscriptions on the side? I can’t see them anymore.

Yep, it was really cluttering up the main sidebar. You can still see them both from the communities page, and from your user page.

Thanks, I was subscribed to a lot and I was glad to see it cleared up too

Is there a way to turn off thumbnails? Apologies if so and I haven’t seen it.

You could use some browser extension that lets you modify the site css, and hide it that way.

You mean not show image post previews? No.

Thanks. Not a fan of that. But whatever.
