I’m working on the Micro.blog app tomorrow. Any requests beyond timeline syncing and image caching?

@leeperry Where about? In the actual post editor? We have tagmoji on the Discover screen.

@vincent category and cross posting choosing - including for drafts, alt text choosing (maybe thats a thing already),

@vincent Post widget for iOS

@willwade Alt text is in there already, just tap on the image in the editor when creating a new post. You can select categories using the gear icon below the character count. I need to work on "drafts", thanks for reminding me. It's also not possible to add a new category yet either.

@kaa I think @manton knows a bit of SwiftUI 😋 When you say "post widget"... what do you imagine?

@pratik LOL. Figured you would give me a whole list 🤣 This is great! I've bookmarked it and will keep an eye on the "App" related things!

@pratik @vincent There is no official feature priority list. 🙂 It’s fine for folks to chime in with feature ideas but just want to be clear about expectations.

@manton Sorry, when @vincent ❤️s a feature, we’re going to assume it’s happening soon ☺️

@vincent while I would love just a text box and an post button, imagine iOS doesnt allow that…so something akin to what Drafts does (post text shortcut, photo would be great.

@vincent

  • Alt text on images shared from Photos.app via the Share sheet.
  • Possibility to share directly from a screenshot taken on the iPhone
  • Scheduling in the app.
  • Deep linking directly to the post from Notifications

These are the ones I remember off the top of my head.

@vincent Yes, font. Give us a way to set the font size in the settings. Like we do in Gluon 🙂

@maique @pcora @otaviocc – OK, will look into that. I might get some pushback on that, but I could "just" add it... and then it's too late 🤣

@vincent @maique @otaviocc thanks! At least make it follow system preferences (it would be the best option, so everyone can configure in one place how text look on their devices) or add something in the settings for people to choose. I side with option one. 😉

@otaviocc @pcora @maique On iOS, per-app text size can be changed by navigating to SettingsAccessibilityPer-App Settings and tapping Add App to add Micro.blog. Then, tap Micro.blog followed by Larger Text.

@sod Yes. And I do have Text Size available on Control Center too. But still find I'd rather have these in-app, instead of "navigating to Settings → Accessibility → Per-App Settings and tapping Add App to add Micro.blog. Then, tap Micro.blog followed by Larger Text." 😅

@vincent timeline syncing is all it needs for me to use it again.

@vincent I know syncing is hard, I don't even want that, I just want the app to stay on the same post when launching after several hours, and let me continue reading where I left off.
