Hello fediverse! This is the official Mastodon account for morii: an Android and iOS app for @pixelfed. The app isn't anywhere near release stage yet, so this account will pretty much be dev notes and feedback requests.

You can also find morii at pixelfed.social/morii.

I'll likely create a Patreon to support app development once I'm closer to an alpha/beta release, but in the mean time I've created a ko-fi if you'd like to support me while I'm working on the pre-pre-pre-pre-alpha. Thank you all so much for your support, financial and otherwise!

The name of the app comes from this lovely video from Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows: youtube.com/watch?v=1asBOCAmga

My goal for this project is to create an app that gets out of your way so you can capture those fleeting moments, and appreciate those captured by others in the fediverse.

I don't know how I'm going to get to that (admittedly lofty) goal, or how long it'll take to get there. I hope that you'll stick around. If we can get there together, I believe the final result will be something amazing.

I don't want morii to be a platform that encourages people to scroll through a feed without intention. I want it to be a platform that celebrates and encourages thoughtful interaction, not engagement.

Taking a step back, and carefully considering what I want morii to be. How it can and how it should shape how people interact with it.

LB: just wanted to make sure folks were aware of my status on morii development. I'm also a college student with a day job, so I have very limited time at the moment. I still plan on working on morii, it'll just be slower and a little delayed. Thanks for your patience!

Hi folks! Just wanted to give a quick update on where I'm at with morii development. I've decided to hold off on building more of the app until the pixelfed/anfora APIs are able to be tested with in production. I did this for a couple reasons, but mostly I'm shallow and I'm way more motivated to build things if I can get tangible progress towards my goal as I'm working :)

I have been considering the ability to hide following/follower counts on pixelfed.

I have noticed that is one of the addicting aspects of social media and I don't want pixelfed to be a platform that encourages addiction. We don't have shareholders to impress and we have a social responsibility to build better alternatives.

And as always, if y'all have feedback about the stuff I'm working on and sharing here, I'd love to hear it! Positive constructive feedback is just as helpful as negative constructive feedback. :)

And here's some initial UI experiments with the new fonts and colors. Still a WIP!

I'm experimenting with adding some splashes of color to the morii interface to make it more unique and fun. Here's some of the styles I'm playing with. :)

Writing documentation and then jumping back into AP. :pixelfed:

I'm playing around with the branding for morii right now, and I'm curious - what do you all think about the current morii logo? What do you like about it? What do you think could be better? What does it evoke for you?

(boosts appreciated, I'd love to get a bunch of feedback!)

Also pic_pub is using Flutter too, so there's lots of opportunities for our projects to contribute to each other :D

I'm really excited that there are multiple apps in development for PixelFed and Anfora; having multiple projects in the space means I can be laser-focused on making sure morii lives up to its mission statement.

If you're following morii development, you should also checkout @crushv's pic_pub, another photo-centric app for Mastodon/PixelFed/Anfora!

Additionally, once there's a pixelfed/anfora API, I can put out a real proof of concept that works with an actual instance. At that point, I'll feel comfortable enough to start crowdfunding development of morii. I don't like supporting vaporware projects, and I want to make sure folks know morii isn't vaporware before they start supporting its development :)

08/17 will be the start of pixelfed season. I hope you are ready 😉

The screenshot I shared last night is basically just a different UI, like TweetDeck. Pixelfed will not start tracking behaviour via analytics, I should have made that more clear.
