We finally got around to migrating to a GitLab instance. Links have been updated , GitHub repo has been reduced to a mirror, Weblate has been switched to the new repo, CI has been reconfigured, etc.
Development will resume, and contributions are very welcome at https://gitlab.shinice.net/pixeldroid/PixelDroid
Thanks to @ShinIce for providing the hosting and helping with the migration 😃
Translators, there are a couple (I think three) new strings, and we would like to do another release tomorrow.
Notably, it has some big improvements to the upload flow performance and visual feedback, and should also have a rudimentary offline fallback mode.
In other news, rise up against tyranny, and never forget what happened 31 years ago today.
Under the GitHub releases: https://github.com/H-PixelDroid/PixelDroid/releases, and on @IzzyOnDroid's F-Droid repo tomorrow.
Made another release. Some bug fixes:
the upload process now doesn't let you upload the same post 16 times by clicking the button a bunch of times 😉
buttons are visible in dark mode as well as light mode
camera works in the rtl layout!
Bio in the profile now has HTML interpreted instead of shown raw.
Some other notes: more strings are now translatable, and you can double-tap to like a post! (of course the API to like a post is still a bit broken, but that's not something we can fix)
PixelDroid announces Alpha Release
Looking for a dedicated Pixelfed app for your Android device? PixelDroid might be what you're looking for. https://wedistribute.org/2020/05/pixeldroid-announces-alpha-release/
The translation server has been so popular we have been rate limited by our email provider. No more outgoing emails until tomorrow, apparently. For any urgent matters arising due to no emails being sent, please send us an email, contact at pixeldroid.org (receiving still works) or contact us on here
We've added some strings, made images upload with some feedback as to the status of the upload, and an error message if something went wrong. New build coming soon (maybe tomorrow? Who knows 😉)
Translators: you can check out the new strings on Weblate: https://weblate.pixeldroid.org/projects/pixeldroid/pixeldroid/
FYI, if we do a release tomorrow it will be built around 18:30 CET, so any translations in by then will be included :)
You can now get the alpha build from @IzzyOnDroid 's repo: https://apt.izzysoft.de/fdroid/index/apk/com.h.pixeldroid
It's the same apk as in the GitHub releases, but it's a convenient way of getting the latest version until we get to a 1.0 release!
Elle arrivera un jour chez @fdroidorg mais pour le moment, on ne peut que la télécharger depuis Github : https://github.com/H-PixelDroid/PixelDroid/releases
J'ai testé, ça marche. 'tention, c'est de l'alpha : c'est pô stable tout le temps.
🎉 The fediverse is 12 years old, so we decided to celebrate (slightly late) by doing an alpha release.
You can check it out at https://github.com/H-PixelDroid/PixelDroid/releases, make sure to read what is broken and why, so that we keep the bug reports to things we don't know about and that are under our control.
Tell us what you think!
🎉 Happy 12th Birthday, #Fediverse
It's great that you don't put all your eggs in one basket ;) Stay cool.
