So I’ve been working on the toot composer for Mastonaut (yes, that’s what my Mastodon client for Mac is called).
A few things are missing — like drag-and-drop for attachments — but nonetheless I think it looks amazing already.
This project has become a craft for me and I can’t wait for it to be ready. Have a look!
(Reposting because I had uploaded it in the QuickTime format)
So I found out that Mastodon limits attachment images to 16 megapixels. Seems it is not documented, and I found it in the source-code. My client will automatically resize attachment images if they’re too large.
And if it all works, you should see a picture I took of the Bixby Creek Bridge below (California is so damn pretty).
Work on my Mastodon app for Mac progresses!
I've been mostly working on the main UI features, and the last feature to be done was adding new content columns so you can browse from different timelines at the same time (home, public, local). You'll be able to have as many columns as it fits in your screen (though the columns do have a minimum width).
After fighting with NSTableView for some hours, I announce that nothing has changed! 😂
(Visually, that is, but now the toot cells are reusable! Which means that I can display as many statuses as I want and the UI framework [Cocoa] takes care of ensuring I only initialise as many views as necessary to perform fast scrolling.)
