I think this could be done even on client side, at least I have some ideas (e.g. “pinned” messages could be just messages with a “room” tag locally saved on the device and chronologically ordered; answering a message can be implemented with markdown and a local search for the message when tapped on it). Of course I have absolutely no idea how hard it could be :D

I never used an iPhone or iOS in any way, so I don’t think this gonna work :)

Yep, I thought about Kotlin, maybe if I can learn that I could help jerboa development too :D

Thanks for the suggestions and the link :). Just briefly looking to the project it sadly doesn’t seems too different from conversetions and forks, but I will check more deeply. Thanks again!

I will think about java, thanks :). Clients I used (conversations and forks) usually lacks a lot of the visual “hints” presents in other applications. E.g. there is no way to answer to a specific message, there is no way to “pin” messages, different messages from the same person aren’t easy to identify, overall experience is not great compared to modern instant messaging apps like WhatsApp/signal and can be frustrating… there are a lot of things that I would love to see, but I understand that they will not magically appear if no one will work on them

You’re right, I’d like to develop for android, and I prefer to learn something else than JavaScript. Thanks for the answer and the info of course :)

Which language should I learn to make a modern XMPP client?

Hi, I’m a complete useless lurker who do not know anything about programming, and I want to program an XMPP client :D. I have absolutely 0 competence, but I’d like to know if there is a language preferable to make such things, and if there is a place where I can start to learn. I tried with some bas…

The funny thing is that I reach a point where I often agree with my mother about tech paranoia. My mother don’t know anything about digital privacy and security and doesn’t trust anything, and I read too much about digital privacy and security and I don’t trust anything

You can try mull, it’s developed by divestOS and is a “hardened” version of firefox without telemetry. Sadly, they have really big issue in building version 100 (firefox fault, addons doesn’t work), but hopefully they will solve the issue in the future. Remember to use ublock as an advanced user and switch JavaScript off by default

Tutto ciò che cita Orwell ormai mi terrorizza. Spero non si trasformi in una istanza stile byoblu… good luck!

Of course, but jerboa should be a better base for future clients, since it’s a native-android client

Dessalines, am I right? Should be one of the main developers of lemmy, and AFAIK one of the main contributor of lemmur. Maybe I’m mixing things up

They probably are focusing on jerboa, and I support it (even if I like lemmur more at this time)

Se usi fedilab puoi :) , puoi cliccare su “segui istanza” e ti crea una sezione nella barra in alto che ti permette di seguire la timeline locale di quell’istanza

Non sono d’accordo. Il giochino del “facciamo ora, spieghiamo poi” ha portato alla situazione attuale e non può che essere problematico nel lungo periodo. Per usare un servizio bisogna essere consapevoli di cosa si sta facendo, a prescindere da quale sia il servizio e da cosa comporti. Un miliardo di utenti di twitter che non sanno cos’é effettivamente mastodon rischia a mio parere di causare solo disagi per tutti

Meh, on android the major clients are conversation and conversation’s forks. Those are OK, but not modern or feauture rich by any mean

Use searx. It’s the best option you have

Troll attack, again

This is horrible and terrible. Just suspend new subscription untill you find a way to address this thing. Now we have gore image too. Please just shut down new subscriptions for now, those trolls attacks are completely out of control…

Antisemitic post and spam

Today I noticed dozen of antisemitic posts and a lot of microdosing posts that look like spam (not completely sure but looks like it) on the “homepage”. I think this is concerning, since this can easily bring unwanted attention to Lemmy and could be used against it (and it is really disturbing to se…


Sarebbe bello se questa community si allargasse, magari la spammo un po’ in giro, anche se al momento la vedo dura. Grazie comunque per averla aperta :)…


Email provider with custom domain and IMAP?

Hi guys, I want to change my email provider to something with the aforementioned features (and obviously with a good privacy policy). I’m actually using tutanota, and it’s great, I recommend it, but I really need to use different clients. …
