Making some nice progress with @owncast's new web UI. We're adopting to make frontend work easier for new contributors. Perfect timing for next month.

Spent my evening getting familiar with @owncast's frontend code. I like what I see so far. With a little elbow grease, this code will really shine.

As mentioned in the recent Owncast video, the project is rewriting the web interface and would love your help. If you have frontend web development experience (We're using React), or want to gain experience, now is a good time to get involved. You can have your ideas, opinions and work in the next major revamp of Owncast. Topics that are being worked on right now: Mobile support, accessibility, chat design. I've heard people criticize all these things, so now is your chance to make it better.
