New markdown renderer
  • I should have specified it to say "if this opens in a popup"

  • Command Palette!
  • Yeah, I'm trying to find ideas for how I could show that it exists without being intrusive.

  • Command Palette!
  • You can right click the photon logo to activate it.

  • New markdown renderer
  • It already does, just limited

  • New markdown renderer
  • For links like @Xylight@lemdro.id and !photon@lemdro.id it's automatically changing it to a mailto: link so I can't run linkify on it.

  • New markdown renderer
  • Nevermind, this renderer won't work because there's no way to disable the autolinking for some reason?

  • New markdown renderer
  • Yeah I'm switching to that one too

    This will be a test post for markdown, as I'm switching to a faster markdown renderer that will allow me to do some cool stuff.

    Do you poweroff your server during night / unused times?
  • Hey, I'm the dev. I fixed this recently

  • No Man’s Sky soars again as new update prompts biggest discount yet
  • Is it just me, or do games always go on massive sales immediately after I purchase it?

  • Do you take a shower after you swim?
  • I went 2 days without showering after a long time at a chlorinated pool and my hair was messed up for a while.

  • Photon v1.31 -- Command Palette!

    arguably a bigger update than v1.31, lots of backend changes for better speed

    i've been using this command palette a lot because it makes doing everything so fast. let me know if there's any action or link you'd like added, since it's very easy to do.

    What's Changed

    • feat: add a command palette by @Xyphyn in https://github.com/Xyphyn/photon/pull/364

      • Press / or ctrl + p or right click the photon logo to bring up the command palette
      • Instantly start typing to find a link, or run an action
    • design: Make compact mode even more compact

    • misc: add infinite scroll to communities too

    • code: rewrite how post feeds are handled, improving speed and cleanliness and allowing more opportunities for caching.

    • misc: add support for upvoted/downvoted posts and uploaded media in the profile page

    • strings: tweak some strings for better clarity

    • Vertical postlink layout for mobile by @sevonj in https://github.com/Xyphyn/photon/pull/360

    Command Palette!

    I'm working on a command palette for Photon, which will allow you to press ctrl + p or / to open a prompt where you can type and go to a page or a recent post instantly.

    Are there any actions or links that you'd want me to add?

  • I have mixed refresh rate monitors, and animations and stuff will use the lowest common denominator. So all animations will be in 60hz on my 144hz monitor, just because I have a 60hz secondary monitor. The biggest offender is moving windows around.

  • Biden Conference on Attempted Assassination Megathread:
  • Lemmy's "active" sort involves recent comments AFAIK, so if you're sorting by that you should see megathreads.

  • I still haven't encountered any issues on Wayland on GNOME. X11 is unusable for me because it handles multiple monitors poorly, and everything just seems less smooth.

  • I'm just gonna stick to slotted, thanks
  • The "wtf is this?" is settings, obviously.

  • [Test Tag] [OC] [NSFL] [CW] test
  • I've noticed it quite a lot actually, for posts tagged as "meta", "oc", "discussion", "rant", etc. the most useful I've seen is in !comics@lemmy.world, because people mark the posts with the comic creator.

  • That's much better.
  • I've heard he gives an actual edit along with one of these joke edits. I'm not too sure though

    feat: add infinite scroll by Xyphyn · Pull Request #349 · Xyphyn/photon

    Hey, I've been working on a few changes to photon that make it a lot faster to open posts and return, and as a result of these changes I can also make infinite scroll work. If you go to this link, Vercel will have commented on the post with a preview link. Those are basically the beta links.

    Preview Link

    Let me know of any bugs and any changes you'd like!

    Current roadmap

    • [x] Make this not duplicate posts in memory
    • [ ] Make this work on all posts
    • [x] Use a virtual list for better render performance
