@fedilab hmm it's not "missing", but i do wish the field to describe the picture was easier to access.
Do you think that also deserves to be improved for Mastodon/Pleroma?
@fedilab nah, it's good :)
@fedilab i use pixelfed as a second account and get "401 message unauthenticated" when switching from my primary account. only readding the account helps for some time... as if some auth. token is expired and is never renewed?
Yes, pixelfed tokens expire and also the refresh tokens. It's a security feature. Currently the token is refreshed while the refresh token has not expired. Otherwise, you need to login again.
@fedilab so i have to use it more so it wont expire? or will the refresh token always expire?
@fedilab I had to turn off my 2fa on pixelfed.social to get it working in Fedilab. Is that something that could be worked on?
It's a known Api bug. It should be fixed soon.
@fedilab Cool, thanks :)
The thing is, that I really don't know if it's a bug or feature of Pixelfed. I really really like to contribute and test, but I guess Pixelfed is just different.
For example: it annoys me, that I can't see comments below pictures, neither my own comment. Or notifications...I have no idea what picture they belong to. I can't follow people easily.
@fedilab I closed my account due to the lack of a usable mobile app. Browsing on the platform was great... For what could get to it.
Hi, I noticed a little problem with the PixelFed part of Fedilab:
When sharing a photo from the gallery on your phone with Fedilab and then selecting the account to post with, it's the mastodon's message editor that opens even when you select a pixelfed account (but the publication still works so it doesn't really matter)
Features that would be nice:
- it would be great, even for masto, to be able to send several pictures in a queue :3, it's annoying when the connection is slow to have to wait for the end of each picture upload and stay glued to your screen to be able to select the next picture ^^".
- Also it would be nice to be able to manage the order of the photos in the messages, rectify after the upload order.
By the way, I had a problem with PixelFed on Fedilab:
the order taken into consideration in the posts with several photos is not the one of sending but the chronological/anti-chronological (I forgot) order of the media in the gallery (I had to modify a photo to make it more recent and to be able to enforce the publishing order I wanted ><").
(It would also be good for masto, currently I have to delete the photo and repost it to change the order ><")
- ...And one last thing that comes to me but I don't know if you can do much about it :
pixelfed doesn't handle notifications very well, if it's not a big deal for favorites, for photo answers you can easily miss them (in fact, I have the impression that there's no notification for messages in pixelfed 😬).
The answers are all visible without exception via the theard display of fedilab (which is not always the case when consulting pixelfed by the site of the instance).
...As Fedilab accesses all the messages : it would be possible to notify all those with account mention? I understand that there are some limitations, what the API does not provide is difficult to invent, but you might as well :D
Note: if I think about all these little things it's because I've been using Fedilab for a while and there are only little things that can make the application even better :3
(Sorry for my english and thx DeepL ^^"... and you :3)
You can pick up several pictures at once. Currently this process (locked button) is done because you can't order them later. The first uploaded is the first displayed in the message.
- The possibility to access directly to the mobile's camera and then send the photo instantly!
- quick and easy access to stories
(And I don't know if it's a bug or not, but the # are not clickable for me...)
Tank you very much for your great work ! 👍 😍
One last thing : when you're on the timeline, in order to view a post in large, you have to press down very precisely on the date, would it be possible to access the posts by clicking anywhere on the post in question like in mastodon ?
It should already work like Mastodon. I will check.
I am on pixelfed.social instance.
- Yes that is possible.
- Stories are not fully covered with the Api afaik.
- Yes, currently I disabled tags search.
OK, thanks for your quick answer !
@fedilab is cross-/doubleposting an option?
writing a toot on a mastodon account and in addition forwarding the image automatically to pixelfed (by checkbox).
That could be added.
Hey, chance for a peertube app?
You meant a dedicated one?
Yes, the other ones aren't good.
Why not simply use Fedilab?
@rick I didn't get it.
Ah OK for friendica ? I opened an issue few weeks ago to get the pagination element that was missing. I didn't check if it was added. Otherwise, just disable the feature in settings (remember position)
@fedilab A dedicated one is much better. eg. It's like using a facebook wrapper to see youtuve video. :)
Not really, they have their custom layouts. Did you try?
I did they don't work unless you are logged in to each service.
@fedilab maybe a way to add location to each post?
It would be great if the reblog text color could be changed in the theming settings in addition to the color of the reblog header. When using a dark theme the contrast is too low for the reblog text to be legible (maybe the low contrast of my device is part of the problem).
Thanks for your great work!
Yes, no worries. That is possible.
I can't upload anything on pixelfed.
@fedilab maybe add support to viewing stories on Pixelfed.
A friendly instance about tech, apps and for having fun.
