I could finally implement the translation feature!
Still some work to do...it doesn't seem to work with toots including hashtags....working on it!
+1. Mainstream social networks can never match this. Due to open-source nature, users submit feedback and suggestions to the core team. There has been 1400 such feedback submitted, out of which 800+ had been implemented. This is excluding other informal feedback channels.
This rapid rate of iteration implementing user feedback will simply lead to a platform which just creates massive value for its users, even though users number is small by comparison to mainstream social networks 🐘

@funkcoaster if you haven't check it out already, Amaroq is a really slick #mastodon client for iOS. Nothing great for iPad yet that I've found, short of just using the HTML5 interface. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/amaroq-for-mastodon/id1214116200?mt=8
So far #mastodon reminds me of the early days of birdsite before it was invaded by marketers and bots. What lessons are there to learn from that to help prevent us getting to that place?
@buttros you can just follow people from other instances by searching them via @username@instancename .
In order to discover people you might take into public timelines of instances using http://www.unmung.com/mastoview?url=mastodon.social&view=local
Or use hashtags to find people with common interests.
Your webapp is serverless? Oh so you use Amazon Lambda and S3?
Please. My webapp can be run by double-clicking "index.html" from a CD.
I'm a geek dad, gamer, hacker, cord cutter, performance tuner, and horrible programmer. I organize NodeSchool Chicago and learn from the great people there.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
