@aurynn hah! Yeah, I found it an excellent base to start with and then added in some things that I needed that were missing.

_I should really clean that up and commit it back in 😬_

@aurynn certainly! github.com/MastodonKit/Mastodo the repo hasn't had much activity lately, but there are a bunch of forks that add in some of the new features :)

@aurynn hehe yeah same, Mercury was my first attempt at an iOS app. I opted to use MastodonKit and so I don't have a bunch of experience with any of the lower level caching, but I do know that some exists.

And yeah, Mercury is going well! I have mainly been focusing on accessibility over the last few months which has meant my UX overhaul plans have been put on pause for a bit :)

@aurynn I am keen to hear how you go with this and which approaches you take! The networking / local storage side was also my biggest fear and is still the part that I want to constantly blow away and start again hah.

Yeah, I'm living the dream


@diabola and if you look up too late and miss the first explosion, they've got your back and will play it at least 10 more times πŸ˜‚

@emmadavidson yesssss! This would be ace! Would be so nice not to have to wind through backstreets to get between the current paths safely 😁

@mike maybe for the one after you can bottle it in an old oil lamp and call it djinn.

@stux Pigeon is just inheriting from Helicopter because that implemented "fly" and well, I was too lazy to reimplement it

@aurynn @simon_w let's hope this slide about Safari 14 actually means something πŸ˜…

Soooo relieved to see Homebrew has been patched by Apple to work with Apple Silicon πŸ˜…

@aurynn ohhh that makes so much sense! I was trying to come up with a way to reconcile the multiple views into the timeline and I went with that menu screen, but I think doing it in a way similar to Tweetbot makes so much more sense! Thanks for the feedback, I'll see how I can rejigger things to make it nicer :)

And yeah that UI bug is annoying me too β€” I am probably doing something UIKit doesn't like, but I am not sure what πŸ™ƒ. It seems it can be "fixed" by swiping down, but that is not ideal.

@aurynn oh hey there! Thank you for trying out my app ☺️

Found Crumpet asleep on the couch like this β€” wonder if she was dreaming of being a super hero.

@dignityinside hey, thank you!

Yeah the plan is to make it open source eventually :) I don't know when, but I have a bunch of things I want to add and clean up first before I spend the time to make the source public.
