We should start a mega thread, get it as nested as we can. I wonder how much Auralite can handle :P

#worldslargestthreadauraliteedition

Jip Fr@jip·Jul 19

Heck yeah!

Jip Fr@jip·Jul 19

I think we might have already made it.

Jip Fr@jip·Jul 19

I just checked on my awesome thread viewer, and I can confirm that I am in fact right

🚀🚀🚀

Jip Fr@jip·Jul 19

That's what's happening here. This thread is rocketing to the top!

Jip Fr@jip·Jul 23

Just adding onto this

The fact this doesn't kill the database is amazing

Jip Fr@jip·Jul 24

It does ruin the feed though lmao

Make more posts then. Also the feed might not be ruined soon.

Jip Fr@jip·Jul 24

It’s not that. It just that the entire thread shows up again per reply

That's what I'm saying. Make more non-thread posts and then the feed will be better.

Hey, friends! I rescued a little Ewok this weekend. He needs a 🛁, but he says hey.

Best first post ever, welcome Taylor!

Welcome Josh!

Watching @miguel implement OAuth 1.0 for Auralite/Twitter cross-posts was very painful.

The Twitter API is awful, hopefully Auralite's will be better. I did get it working in the end though (off-screen, but it works so it still counts)!

Work In Progress

I have no idea how you do it, but your UIs always look super clean

This is all looking pretty good on mobile now 🤙🏼 Nice work @miguel!

Thanks Ryan!

Is it just me or does the new auralite load a lot more slowly

Or maybe it's just that there's no pagination so it's loading every post ever LMAO

Jip Fr@jip·Jul 05

I think it’s pretty slow, yeah

Give me some time to finish & roll out the new design and I'll start working on performance 😁

next.js auralite is amazing

Hello fellow members of Auralite!

Welcome Jip!

🔮 More Auralite updates! (a thread)

To start, profiles are now public! Anyone who visits auralite.io/{yourhandle} can see your public posts. Feel free to start using it as a proper platform and sharing the link around.

I've also added some initial privacy controls, which allow you to select wether you want everyone to see your post/reply or just share it with Auralite users. This will be expanded soon to followers/mutuals/specific people, but it should work for now 😁

I've also added the option to delete your posts (by clicking the arrow). You can't currently change who can see a post, but I might add that in the future if you're interested (lmk in the replies 😉)

Finally, I've made a few UI updates so that everything looks better on mobile (not so much on desktop, but we'll get there) and added loading state to everything so that content doesn't bump around when it's loaded. Oh, and you no longer have to refresh to get the latest posts, we'll do that for you

Hi this is a reply

@william @ryan @dom @felix @duncan Mentions are now a thing, please don't spam each other.

@miguel nice work - just need to clear notifications now 😉

@ryan As soon as profile editing is done

No mentions still? @miguel

THE CODE IS HERE BUT THEY DO NOT WORK

I love how auralite in its current state is more of an asynchronous chat platform

well just wait until we have replies

hopefully today

@miguel do we get to keep these handles

@miguel how much do i have to pay you to contribute to the auralite codebase

Do "The People" really want access to the Auralite source? Convince me of why I should do it
