Pinafore v1.2.0 Show more
🆒 New stuff
On Chrome for Android, you can now tap "…" and then "share toot" to share the toot with any other app (see video). This is coming soon to iOS Safari as well.
The main pinafore.social server should now be faster thanks to being hosted as a static site. See the release notes for details.

This is a quick bugfix release to make it so that right-clicking to download an image still works inside of the media carousel. Thanks to @sc for reporting the bug!

Pinafore v1.0.0 (3/3) Show more
If you've set "reduce motion in UI animations," then all smooth-scrolling will now be disabled (e.g. tapping the nav bar to scroll to the top, keyboard shortcuts to scroll through toots, the image carousel, etc.).
If you've set "Disable tappable area on entire toot," then the cursor will no longer be a hand when you hover over toots.
Thanks, and enjoy Pinafore v1.0.0!

Pinafore v1.0.0 (1/3) Show more
Pinafore has hit v1.0.0! Rather than a momentous occasion, though, this is more to communicate a breaking change for those who self-host Pinafore (ala semantic versioning: https://semver.org). But there are also some new features and bugfixes!
⚠️ Breaking change ⚠️
Pinafore now uses yarn instead of npm. If you self-host, learn how to update: https://github.com/nolanlawson/pinafore/blob/master/BREAKING_CHANGES.md#100
This can be tested at https://dev.pinafore.social right now, or wait a bit for the next release. :)

After having tried Halcyon a while ago, I've now tried Pinafore today. A pleasant experience. Fast, and more slick than expected. Also, nice that neat details are there, for example searching for "briar", shows hash-tagged "briar" but shows "briarapp" and more, and then when clicking on the hashtag "briarapp", and later pressing the back option, it nicely shows the exact previous search results. "back" as "back" should be. Wonderful piece of work! #pinafore Blog post about Pinafore : https://nolanlawson.com/2018/04/09/introducing-pinafore-for-mastodon/ Github page : https://github.com/nolanlawson/pinafore @nolan #pinafore
If you're not seeing all the emoji in the new emoji picker, then you may need to upgrade your operating system. There's also an issue tracking whether or not we can detect unsupported system emoji: https://github.com/nolanlawson/pinafore/issues/849
Pinafore v0.16.0 Show more
Pinafore v0.16.0 now features a full emoji keyboard! It's very similar to Mastodon's, as they both rely on the emoji-mart library. Minor differences include:
- Native system emoji are used rather than Twemoji
- A large preview of the emoji is shown when hovering
- The skin tone selector is on the bottom rather than the top
- Better support for Pleroma media (thanks @sirikon!)
- Preserve newlines in "delete and redraft"
