@Arno500 I’m praising the web as a device-independent app platform, mentioning the devices I happen to be using.
Twitter Lite and High Performance React Progressive Web Apps at Scale
@lifewinning Main obstacle from my point of view is Twitter’s popularity. Apart from that, I’m using Mastodon almost exactly like Twitter.
OK, so replies *are* hidden from followers. Same rules as on Twitter?
1. If you start a toot (any toot, not just replies?) with an @-mention, only people who follow you and the mentioned account can see the toot.
2. Removing the @-mention, moving it to the end or prefixing it with a dot shows the toot to everybody.
I really enjoyed this blog post about how the best OOP and FP solutions to the expression problem are really the same approach: https://oleksandrmanzyuk.wordpress.com/2014/06/18/from-object-algebras-to-finally-tagless-interpreters-2/
Unfamiliar with the expression problem? That's okay, the author explains it very clearly. No background necessary!
.@felixsanz W.r.t. backing up one’s Mastodon data: In the preferences, you can already export some of your data (but not your toots). I’d expect that there is more to come.
Also: it should be relatively easy to implement a tool that automatically syncs/backups one’s data; it’s just an Atom feed, after all.
Interesting: React supports migration between versions via codemods.
Hey admins of smaller servers, i have to tell you something!
In the first days of social.tchncs.de i explored some gnusocial and mastodon servers for interesting and active users and followed them from here. So the these where about 20people from random but maybe 8 different instances and about 100 from boosts. Everything else happened by itself. I stopped with this weeks before the twitter update and never needed a bot. My server knows 601 servers atm and my federated timeline is hyperactive.

If Mastodon continues to evolve at the speed it currently does, I’ll soon write a similar tweet (or rather, series of tweets).
Webpack and Rollup: the same but different @rich_harris
Lol now social.tchncs.de feels small. https://social.tchncs.de/media/DzaFDciJviiYjk_3jw0
One of the first Mastodon instances, there is no specific topic we're into, just enjoy your time!
