We finally got around to migrating to a GitLab :gitlab: instance. Links have been updated , GitHub :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 gitlab.shinice.net/pixeldroid/

Thanks to @ShinIce for providing the hosting and helping with the migration πŸ˜ƒ

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.

Happy 3rd birthday @Tusky

One more thing

We are working closer than ever with mobile app developers

Mobile app support for Pixelfed is our top priority!

PixelDroid :pixelfed: boosted

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 πŸ˜‰

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. wedistribute.org/2020/05/pixel

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 πŸ˜‰)

Translators: you can check out the new strings on Weblate: weblate.pixeldroid.org/project
FYI, if we do a release tomorrow it will be built around 18:30 CET, so any translations in by then will be included :)

I guess I'm going for while I'm writing then πŸ˜…

Thanks a lot for the help, fediverse.

A little poll:
I want my image to upload:

You can now get the alpha build from @IzzyOnDroid 's repo: apt.izzysoft.de/fdroid/index/a

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!

:pixelfed: Hey, il existe une application Android pour @pixelfed et mΓͺme qu'elle s'appelle @PixelDroid.

Elle arrivera un jour chez @fdroidorg mais pour le moment, on ne peut que la tΓ©lΓ©charger depuis Github : github.com/H-PixelDroid/PixelD

J'ai testΓ©, Γ§a marche. 'tention, c'est de l'alpha : c'est pΓ΄ stable tout le temps.

#pixelfed #pixeldroid #android

Since a lot of text was changed in a recently merged PR, new translations are available on the weblate instance: weblate.pixeldroid.org

Expect translations to be incomplete in the release's APK because of this.

πŸŽ‰ The fediverse is 12 years old, so we decided to celebrate (slightly late) by doing an alpha release.

You can check it out at github.com/H-PixelDroid/PixelD, 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.

@IzzyOnDroid has said he will host it on his F-Droid repo, and we will also start the process with the main @fdroidorg repo.

Tell us what you think!

Oh boy, people are contributing Arabic to the translations. I guess we'll see how well RTL works in the app πŸ˜…

I never would have dreamt of such an amazing response though, thank you so much 😍

(I am a bit sad no-one replied "General Kenobi" to the first toot though)
