It’s been a while since I checked in here. Plenty going on - mostly around rectifying small pockets of resistance between light and dark modes, plus the addition of new features such as an enhanced reputation system and the ability to create polls. Plus, there are several changes going on under the hood which are completely transparent to users or the operation of the platform.
However, some changes mean that the platform does need to be restarted for code changes to stick and function correctly. I tend to do this during non busy periods, but sometimes, it’s unfortunately inevitable. The good news is that in most cases, a full restart takes only 20 seconds.
@gotwf The REGEX match should not be greedy - for example, I have it configured so that it only executes on case-sensitive. Admittedly, it may be flagging other words, and may not be perfect, but it’s a WIP presently and beneficial to those joining who may not be familiar with the abbreviations or acronyms I frequently use.
There’s still some very minor bugs in the two themes (light and dark) but these will be resolved in the coming days. Some are specific to firefox, and well require special attention, but will still be resolved nonetheless.
@crazycells Yes, you should install the app that is offered when you access the site. I’ve had mixed experiences with this though. It seems to work fine with Chrome and Firefox, but it’s a bit hit and miss with Apple devices because of their closed ecosystem, and the inability to access the push service directly.
Android is completely different in the sense that the service is open for usage, meaning hooking into the pusher is simple. For Apple, it is closed source, so probably won’t work.
