I had the muvo!! I loved that thing.

Smartphones really did wipe out a ton of those single-function devices.


Lemmy translations signups (on weblate) are working again.
Apologies for all the translators that weren't able to sign up before (it was email issues), this should be fixed now.

The money thing is definitely an issue… when lemmy’s NLNet grant runs out, we will need to transition to a more sustainable model.

The best option for open source projects like this one to stay alive, is subscriptions (which we already have via liberapay and opencollective). I really like what tasks.org has to say about it:

I know you hate subscriptions. I don’t like them either.

Mobile apps must be maintained and supported forever, and one-time purchases are not an effective method of funding development¹. When one-time sales dry up then developers abandon the app. Subscriptions give them an incentive to keep you happy.


Thanks <3

For me at least, the burnout comes from the fact that I want to code, not troubleshoot. I want to make new features, build snazzy front ends, and not have to worry about money.

But as lemmy’s gotten more popular, a big chunk of my time is spent doing the things the article mentions: responding to an endless stream of notifications that builds faster than you can close them, helping debug people’s system setups, address people’s odd use-case pet features they want, and troubleshoot other issues.

Many times people can be very rude, not realizing they’re asking you to do free labor for them. Its very similar to how some people treat restaurant servers as their personal servants.


So basically medium running their own mastodon instance, and making sure their workers use it rather than twitter or something, is a way to keep them in line?


Medium is even one of the ones explicitly called out here: https://idlewords.com/talks/website_obesity.htm

They managed to make displaying some text, a bloated javascript spyware mess.


I think its a good idea obvi. Its a collision between the microblogging / twitter-style that masto and pleroma employ(that have no title, only a body), vs the link-aggregator style (which has a title, and an optional body).

Both platforms should try to resolve the missing fields in whatever way possible, even if that means extrapolating bodies to titles and vice versa.


MessagEase Layout for the MultilingO keyboard
This is the MessagEase layout for the MultilingO keyboard. Unfortunately MessagEase development (which is the fastest android keyboard), died several years ago, and we're in dire need of a replacement.

That already exists, there’s a dedicated getcommunities endpoint… and a search that can search for communities.


How would you feel about bundling this type of automatic discovery into lemmy, as an optional server setting (default off)?

It’d be one of the periodic maintenance jobs we already have in there.


Yep that’s correct, instances don’t automatically connect to all communities. Someone from that instance has to subscribe to it first, for that instance to start getting updates.


Federated communities do show up both on the search page, and the communities page.

https://lemmy.ml/communities/listing_type/All/page/1


This is a really good question.

For micro-blogging, the only one of those that’s internal to your service, is “boosts”. The equivalent for lemmy, would be cross-posts on communities you already follow, where the url field is either your local copy, or the federated link. Someone would x-post a link from another community, you’d see it, then subscribe to it.

A better answer to your question tho, would be a global community discovery service. Someone could either write one, and @nutomic@lemmy.ml has also written a lemmy-instance-crawler for join-lemmy.org to do the same. We could also potentially expand what join-lemmy.org shows, to list the most popular communities globally, and for each instance.

Since communities aren’t tagged, the only real way to look through them would be by popularity tho. But it would at least be a centralized place to see every known community on every known instance.


There’s a crosspost button for posts.

But there’s sometimes two comment links shown, because it might be a federated comment, and the other comment originated elsewhere.


They should link to the techempower benchmarks… rust web frameworks are some of the fastest out there right now.


Thanks! Thought it looked good. I can add a few more colors on suggestion.


I’ve moved to all outlined material icons, and android has no outline arrow up or down: https://fonts.google.com/icons?icon.query=arrow+up&icon.platform=android&icon.set=Material+Icons&icon.style=Filled

I moved to the heart because its what masto and twitter were using, and it looked really good.

Boost for android has some good outlined arrow icons, but I couldn’t find where they were from as its a closed-source project.


This is fixed now btw in the next version, 0.0.23


The hearts come not only from other android apps like mastodon, but I also tried out a lot of things, and the hearts look the best.

I get that its weird, and if someone finds some good android-compliant up and down unfilled and filled arrows (they aren’t in the android material icon extended repo), I’ll consider it. But keep in mind that every tiny UI change is going to upset some people, and this app is still in alpha. When and if I switch back to arrows, people will have gotten used to the hearts, and complain again.

Thanks, I should be able to look at this within a few days.



I need a crash report / log dump to see what’s going on. Open up on issue on the GitHub and I’ll take a look.

Did any of yall get this? Really annoying.

Idea for a Lemmy project: Create a stackoverflow style front-end for lemmy.
In the same way that Nutomic built a phpBB themed front end, it would be entirely possible to create a stack-overflow type one, as many of the same concepts translate over.

I figured out the f-droid version wasn't using a minified / optimized version of jerboa. It should be must faster now.

Someone made a RTL Arabic lemmy!
Could someone who speaks Arabic please contact them? I'd love to get those changes incorporated into lemmy-ui.

Pictures should be working smoothly now.
All the old pictures are restored from a backup, and should be working now. We've bought more hard drive space too, so we should be okay for a while.

Welcome to Lemmy, I'm one of the devs and admins for this instance. Being pro-piracy, and allowing torrent magnet links 🏴‍☠️ , is one of the original reasons I started working on lemmy ( even a lot of the better reddit alts refuse to allow magnet links, or be pirate-friendly). One of the best ways to keep the stream alive, is by decentralizing the ways we find and access content. Torrents do this directly for data, but I hope that lemmy, as a federated reddit alternative, can eventually serve as a platform to aggregate, post, and comment on pirated data in a decentralized way. [More info about Lemmy including docs, how federation works, and a good onboarding site.](https://join-lemmy.org/) Welcome aboard!
