What features would you like to see in a new web Mastodon client?
Feature ideas so far:
- Multiple accounts logged in at the same time
- More themes
- Auto dark and light mode
- More emojis?
- Better audio support
- Faster and sleeker interface
Okay, I could do this. I just need a place to start. What does making a Mastodon client involve?
Any ideas for a name for a Mastodon client?
I got a name. It has a couple layers of meaning too.
I am going to make a repository and make a set of ideas to proceed.
@masterofthetiger more themes, translate, auto dark and light mode
@Sujee Okay. I will certainly work on those (though I am not so sure about translation yet). Thanks for your input!
What do you think should be the driving factor to bring people to use it? Pinafore.social focuses on simplicity. Halcyon focuses on being Twitter-like. What kind of interface would you like to see?
@masterofthetiger something unique to mastodon but a little it like twitter too.
@masterofthetiger @Sujee there is a CSS-only way to do that now https://mastodon.social/@moznews/102926358246104260
Or at least, it's in the pipeline, and probably already on newer firefox versions?
@masterofthetiger Maybe more unique emojis or ones you can add easily (like an update pack).
@micrackbiron Isn't that done on the instance level?
@masterofthetiger Oh yeah, I guess it is. That was just off the top of my head. There must be something else...
I want to client to follow to Twitter acc 😀
@noorul What do you mean?
A new web client for Mastodon may have additional features to retrieve posts from any Twitter account to home timeline
@noorul That would be interesting. But can't you just use birdsite.monster?
Make the name 7-8 characters for proper domain name
What's the name??
@masterofthetiger Being able to login to multiple accounts on the same instance.
@dajbelshaw One of my top priorities. 🙂
@masterofthetiger Glad to hear it!
@magneticeagle Are you saying that you would be willing to contribute?
@masterofthetiger I certainly would, but I know very little about web development. What languages would be needed to contribute to a project like yours?
All in all, I wouldn't be surprised if it has an extremely broken setup at first.
