Diaspora Native WebApp
Updated: March 18, 2019 (version 1.9)

Is it native as in using the D* API or a web-client?

I was trying to make an #easy-share-option for Android/D* a while back but discovered that at the time, the only part of the #API which was implemented was the #OAuth2 / #OpenID login.

I did start to implement parts of the API to achieve my goal (sloppily, and in PHP ;) ) but got sidetracked into trying to find out what the state of the D* API was at the time (ie nonexistent) so let it slide.

Maybe I'll chuck the code up on my #github at some point. #diaspora #client #native

@Vi Coactus it is web client and pretty simplistic one.

As far as I know API is already created and will be released soon. Keep an eye on release notes 😀

Yes remember reading that work was moving forward on the API over on discourse a while back now.

Hmm, the image has text that says "WebApp" I get to appear ignorant for only giving a cursory glance.. I also blame the Jagermeister... 😀

It would be nice to do a fully native app using the API.. lean and fast is always a plus when you're running pie on a phone with just 1gb ram.

@Vi Coactus, you may be interested @Hank G's blog on the Diaspora API (in beta)

Yep, Diaspora needs proper client badly.

Thing I need the most is offline mode - so I can compose the post, add images, tags, etc even if I have sketchy or no connection. Then let the app keep trying to send it in the background. Would be great for outdoors.

Another is tag autocomplete. App could save a list of chosen tags and allow to quickly add them. It is pain to type a bunch of longish tags like #DigitalResistance from mobile and typos are critical.
