Posting from c++, fltk GUI.
I will spend a evening replacing the GUI library. FLTK is a pain when it comes to getting the strings the way I need them. I think Ill try gtkmm or nanogui.
I have cleaned up the timeline a bit, I like this much more.
I use the markdown text now, instead of the ‘text’ field in the json file, looks much cleaner.
I can work with this. One thing that I want to sort out next is the way the nicknames and url is shown.
Also links in posts should be clickable - not sure if the current labels support that, but I’ll try and figure it out somehow. Anyways - latest screenshot is attached here.. :)
@prologic thank you!
Okay, so back at it today. I want to start and fix the text where nick and url is included, strip that away from the text being shown, makes the statuses much more cleaner. Also need to get started on clickable url’s somehow.
Also- refresh of the timeline needs to be fixed.
And threads would be nice to see as well, the list goes on and on :)
Timeline is cleaned up, so now I think I have that part sorted.
Next is to refactor a bit and then fix so that the timeline refreshes properly.
Once that is done I think I’ll clean it up and upload the source somewhere and create tickets for outstanding known issues. Most likely upload it to github and continue the work there.
Also - did a quick test on linux, it gave a lot of errors with the rapidjson library, so I have to find a way to work around that. I think I’ll pull the latest, then compile it - and then point to that - instead of installing the rapidjson-dev package. Maybe that’ll work.
Turns out the problem I had was also there when I build rapidjson from source, but if I moved the include to earlier (rapidjson in my project) - the problem went away, so I suspect it’s the same as in this issue going on.
The cool thing is that the client now works fine on linux without changing anything else then the include order!
So now I’ll do all development there - instead of on windows.
@email@example.com Good progress 👌 Hope you get the build working on all the platforms you care about 😆
@prologic thank you! Openbsd is also one of my target platforms. Want to have it in the ports tree there as well, but Ill get to that a bit later.
@firstname.lastname@example.org It’ll be exciting to see for sure 👌
Got the timeline to refresh, now I need to add a timer for that, but for now I’ll just make a refresh button.
It’s not smart - so it grabs and adds the whole timeline again at this moment (but clears it first). Later I’ll make it so that it only appends new statuses that are not already in the list. But feels good to have this sorted, makes it much more usable.
@email@example.com Nice 👌
