@vincent One thing I miss in Gluon from the native app is the username suggestions when you’re composing a new post.

@pratik I need to check how the native app does it... does it suggest only the users you follow?

@vincent Nope. You start typing letters after the @ and it suggests names. I guess it’s from the users database? @manton would know. But doesn’t Gluon already do this for replies? I do find its suggestions in replies better than the native app.

@pratik Gluon suggests users in the conversation and also from the ones you’re following. It’ll not query via searching the database though… something I could look at 😋

@vincent actually I love the UI for replies in Gluon compared to the native app. I like how it suggests users from the conversation and also how it lets me expand the post that I’m replying to.

@vincent @pratik The official apps keep a cache of usernames based on what the app sees and who you're following. There's also a Micropub query (e.g. q=contact&filter=mant) for searching partial usernames, although I don't think we're actually using it right now.
