Ticktack 0.4.1

This is a bug fixes and tweaks patch... and a couple of really tiny features D:
Will be released some time in the next week I hope

Here's what it includes so far:

  • fix the search page results (stops them repeating)
  • refactor of all the streams to be more performant:
    • much faster private message display
    • all streams are now 'stepped' at their source, making them much less memory intensive
  • front page now displays blogs + posts longer that 2500 chars.
  • markdown editor for blogs
    • exposes an alternate editor if you prefer to write in md
    • TODO - to get this out quickly, this currently doesn't support auto-saving of drafts in md editor mode
  • unread count refactor
    • massive tidy up of the code (which might make it easy to learn from the pattern...)
    • now makes counting a lot lighter, by making a global cache that is only initialised once 😄
  • translations update

Epidemic Broadcast Trees modifies how Ticktack gossips. It's more efficient - making for more performant replication, and happier less abused pubs!

Fixes

  • dont' display Stats page if Ticktack is using Patchwork server (as there are missing plugins)

This time we're releasing the majority of the features for this sprint as a pre-release. We expect there to be parts which need attention and tuning, and would love feedback!

New Features

A beautiful editor for writing

selection_600

  • medium-style WYSIWIG
  • auto-saves draft of your writing as you write

Sharing

selection_597

  • share blogs you've enjoyed with friends on the web
  • reshare blogs to your followers on scuttlebutt

This is built on the awesome work of :

  • @cel, @arj , @noffle ssb-viewer and blog plugins for that
  • @mikey's new resilient docker-based pub setup

Writing Stats and Notifications

selection_596

  • quick overview of how people are engaging with your writing
  • click on specific pieces to filter view to show just stats on that piece

selection_601

  • feeds to seeing who has been sharing, commenting on, and liking your work
  • easy way to quickly reply to comments within this view

This has been made easy with @matt's mutant and the support he's generously offered me.

Bugfixes

  • added Subscribe button back in (which I accidentally broke in the last installer!)

Features still to be build for 0.4

Backup & Restore your identity

This one is super exciting!
We are enabling users to export their private keys, and then safely restore their identity on another computer at a later date. (Note for people new to scuttlebutt - if you manage this poorly, you can fork your identity, and other peers will ignore your broken feed, so doing this well takes some care)

This is a pattern that others will be able to follow

This is going to be built on the work of

EBT

This is a replication technology which will enable the safe identity restore, but also add performance improvements to replication - dramatically reducing the number of weighty connections the sbot is juggling, and the amount of network chatter needed to 'keep up to date'

This release folds in a bunch of the feedback from the Scuttlebutt community, and adds new speed-ups around subscriptions which makes the Ticktack super zippy
Enjoy ❤️
