Now we have access, we've fixed our initial API bugs with @ivory and it should work pretty seamlessly now from first login!

@ktv Yeah, it's planned - doesn't seem to be on the issues list yet though so we'll get that added.

@jph @mammoth Yes it's quite possible this is on our side - having to reimplement Mastodon's specific variant of OAuth has been full of surprises!

@gabi Yeah, it gets a bit confused by the way we send usernames back. We'll probably switch it out even if it will mean it's possible to then have it display wrong.

@aniseed Yeah, we have not quite worked out what the federation mismatch is there. Fixed a few bugs, but something is still misaligned.

@jph Curious, what are the clients that don't work? Right now most of our testing is from Tusky and Elk.

@fabian Well given that the CSS only ever shows on your own pages, the security risk of doing safe is a lot less than it first seems.

@ciantic Yup, that's still not part of our API surface for annoying technical reasons. Opened an issue here so it has a proper one: github.com/jointakahe/takahe/i

@jph It's definitely not fully polished but it's a start! Let us know if you have any styling improvement ideas.

@fabian Noted! I'm sure we can fix that: github.com/jointakahe/takahe/i

Takahē 0.7 is now released! Blocking! Emoji admin! Announcements! Loads of quality of life fixes! Read more at docs.jointakahe.org/en/latest/

We've also launched a Patreon for those who want to help us out financially - that's over at patreon.com/takahe

@alcapurrias The widening of the UI is honestly a good idea - we might increment that a bit (the max-width we chose _is_ a bit narrow).

@bloodwrites We're big fans of being able to present yourself in multiple ways to whatever circles of people you want!

@ktv We sign all outgoing requests and can pull data from them, so I don't _think_ it's that.

@AntoineD Yup - read through jointakahe.org/takahesocial/ and follow the instructions there!

@simon @MattHodges We plan to have account moving between servers in relatively soon, but replacing an existing Mastodon with Takahē and keeping everything is a more challenging task we're leaving until after 1.0.

Version 0.6.1 is out - lots of bugfixes (to the client API especially), as well as the ability to set profile metadata, fetching the history of reply threads, and optional infinite scroll! docs.jointakahe.org/en/latest/

@a2 Interesting! We do return those, but I bet there's some small format difference we need to fix.

@a2 Yeah, polls are not actually really implemented yet, and any ability for them to appear at all is quite good honestly!

@me We fixed that one yesterday - will take a few days to propagate out I think.

It's been a lot of work, but Takahē 0.6 is finally here! docs.jointakahe.org/en/latest/

Among other features, this includes initial Mastodon Client API support (for existing client apps), custom emoji support, reporting and moderation queues, and a lot of UI and efficiency improvements.

There's still plenty more to do, but we're excited to get to a point where a new community could be run on Takahē. We'll be opening up takahe.social registrations soonish too!

@ktv OK it should really, definitely be fixed this time?

@ktv This should be fixed now!

@ktv It should Just Work as we parse the text directly - will investigate what's happening with those posts!
