@prologic (re first app) It’s been a fun ride so far. I am super excited and hoping we can take this community even further.

@prologic (re automating App Store process) This might come handy a bit later. For now TestFlight itself it setup so we are good until we go live in the App Store then automation will be good. I will ask for help if needed. ☺️Thanks for offering to help.

If anyone reading this wants to be a beta tester for twtxt iOS app, please let me know. The first version is out on TestFlight.

Last final UI tweaks which I am hoping it will be quick and then… TestFlight submission

antonio

App store process to submit apps is hard work. I will have to spend sometime later to automate this for twtxt iOS app.

@lukem (re Twtxt Net API) 😍 tell us more about it. What it is? What language is built on? I don’t recognize the lang from your screenshot.

@prologic (re TechTinkering liking twtxt) I don’t think @TechTinkering will see your twt. Am I right? But I can try to tweet at him. I knew keeping my Twitter™account would come handy one day. 😉

@prologic @lukem (re Android App) If you do decide to build something feel free to ping me with whatever question you have. You are welcome to the team anytime. ☺️

twtxt iPhone app coming along. Timeline loads the latest 50 twts. Needs to download avatar and time ago date format

@prologic (re API keys / limits) Nice. All makes sense. After giving some more thought I believe we can add this later if needed. We don’t need to decide it now.

antonio

@prologic (re API keys / limits) Yeah that is more complicated especially with other instances / pods now that you mentioned and I think about. An app that supports multiple instance will need to register itself with every Pod operator? That is ugly and complicated and defeats the purpose of an app support multi-pods. I need to understand it better too. Is there another way to do rate limits that you know of?

antonio

@prologic (re API keys / limits) Yeah some sort of limit. But how would you do that? I think one way to do it is to use a API key, no? And what I mean by bad / buggy clients is in case I release an app that has a bug that it is DDOSing twtxt.net you could suspend the app until a fix is out.

antonio

@prologic (re CLI UNIX style) very nice idea. Should we add some API key for the clients so we can turn off the abusers? Or even temp suspend buggy clients?
