This week I finished up the api and activitypub code refactoring, to simplify the code. I also many security checks for the activitypub inbox, so that for example a malicious cant delete a post created by a different instance. This is also the last backend feature needed to fullfil our NLnet milestone 1 (federation feature complete). This means our federation is almost feature complete. Next we can go over to fixing bugs and security issues, and testing to make sure everything works as expected.

This means our federation is almost feature complete.

There is still a lot of work left to make it halfway secure, clean up the code, and add tests/documentation.

Oh, sure! But it’s getting closer every week, and it makes me happy :D

Most of the stuff we added is in this recent v0.7.40 pre-release, but the main things I worked on this week are:

  • Preferred usernames and user bios.
  • Icons and banners.
  • An Active sort.
  • Trying out a new mobile post view.

I love the community icons and banners, it helps the communities feel more unique.

I am getting this button on dropdown boxes that wasn’t there before:

Hrm… I think its from when I updated the default bootstrap theme, I’ll take a look.

Active sort is a useful addition, good work.

Edit: I see them on the bottom

~ Today I noticed that post voting arrows and scores are hidden in portrait on mobile (ios 13, safari with firefox content blocker), but appear on landscape and desktop. Is this by design ~~

Is there a particular reason why the small icon at the left of the tab shows the mouse everywhere again? It does on Lemmygrad, too:

Formerly, it had this icon instead of the mouse:

That made it easier to distinguish between Lemmygrad and Dev Lemmy when I had both open in the same window, in different tabs. Is there a particular reason why that has been changed to show the mouse everywhere again, or is has that just accidentally been changed?

I still see the red/yellow favicon over there, but only after the page is fully loaded.

Strange. I only see it there in the top left corner of the page, but not to the left of the tab title, not even after the page is fully loaded.

Did you try reloading the page? Maybe with Ctrl + F5 for force reload.

Hrm… ya it should only show that mouse until the page is loaded and it has the favicon. I have both tabs open right now and they have the different icons.

Well, the device that I’m writing this from has weird connection issues sometimes. I just tested on a different device, it showed the mouse at first too, but when I went to the login page it loaded the favicon. So, maybe the problem is on my side.

@nutomic@lemmy.ml I had tried reloading with Ctrl + R before writing my comment about the issue. Thanks for suggesting, now I tried reloading with Ctrl + F5. After multiple attempts, it made the mouse disappear and the tab have no icon at all. But some pictures don’t load either. And if I repeat too often, it just shows the tab titled “Lemmygrad” and a blank page. So I now that the reason is really some weird connection issues on my side. Thanks for clarifying this.

Were there any changes recently made to the way how favicons are loaded/displayed, though? I remember it previously working for me.

In that case you are probably running into the rate limit, don’t reload the page too often in a short interval. Yes there were some changes, but I think now it should just use the site icon as favicon.

Oh, OK. There is a rate limit for loading the page? The documentation says:

Rate limits

  • 1 per hour for signups and community creation.
  • 1 per 10 minutes for post creation.
  • 30 actions per minute for post voting and comment creation.
  • Everything else is not rate-limited.

If there’s a rate limit on loading the page now, too, that passage should probably be updated.

(The issue is most likely really on my side then. As I said, it often doesn’t load some pictures too after I press Ctrl + F5. Probably something is just wrong with my connection (my connection breaks off regularly when I try to connect to other sites too), especially considering that nobody else mentioned having the same issue. Thanks again for your clarifications.)

We have a rate limit in nginx for HTTP requests, independent from the rate limits in Lemmy itself. But if you have the problem on other sides too, then its probably on your side cause everything works fine for me.

Now it finally showed up for me. So, the problem, whatever it was, was apparently on my side.

Everything about Lemmy; bugs, gripes, praises, and advocacy.
