Hello Fosstodon!
I'm David, a web developer from València, Spain.

Like most of you, I'm a FOSS advocate. In my free time, I try to create and maintain Free Software projects that can be found in my GitHub profile.

My best known work is Lingva Translate, a Free and Open Source front-end for Google Translate.

In addition to English, I will also toot in Spanish and Catalan in this account, but only on unlisted and private posts in order to comply with the instance's rules.

Happy hacking!

As an extra note, the theme logic has also changed. Now, the default theme on the first run will be defined by the user's system preference, unless the server admin forces a certain default theme. After the first manual toggle, the value will be read from localstorage.

In order to ease the development and mantainance, I've extracted the whole scraping proccess (including the previous one) into an NPM package (github.com/thedaviddelta/lingv).

I've already implemented some of this information (like the detected source or the pronunciation texts) into main Lingva, but the bigger ones will be added when I have more time to refactor the whole UI.
Anyway, all this information is already available in the REST and GraphQL APIs.

The main addition in this release is the use of the newly discovered GTranslate endpoint (thanks to @metalune, mantainer of SimplyTranslate, for this) that brings information like the detected source, pronunciation text, definitions, examples or extra translations.
