[Feature Request] Autoupdate timeline #40
Well, the basic feature is quite easy to implement, you are right! However, I'm still struggling a bit to update the content of the timeline so that the cursor position stays exactly - so pixel-exactly - on the position as it was before the update. Only if this is achievable I would integrate such an auto-update without explicit user interaction. Otherwise it could be quite a distracting user experience if the item which I'm currently reading is jumping back and forth - even if it's just a bit (as it happens currently when you explicitly press "Update").
Most certainly, this won't be possible before I included content caching as I heavily use lazy-loading for link previews, attached tweets etc. This lazy loading simply influences the current cursor position as well. If everything is cached, I can handle that much better.
To sum it up: That's definitely on my list. However, it might not come before I implemented some other features. Next on the list are:
Best regards and have fun with Piepmatz! Sebastian
