Okay don’t give me shit for using iOS but devRant crashes atleast twice on me everyday.

I realise it’s very difficult to debug these since they’re random but is there an automatic report sent to the devs in the event of a crash ?
That would help fix the issue. If there isn’t, perhaps they should consider adding such a function ?

    There is a issue tracker. And for the ios: ๐Ÿงจ (Can't find the shit emoticon, we don't need it so much on Android..) ๐Ÿ˜

    I don't see the point of the apps at all. It would be much easier and more effective to drop them and give the web version a bit more love. Bamm, cross-platform out of the box!

    @Fast-Nop the walled garden is a grudge match / cage fight to the death for user attention anyway.

    web all the fucking way.

    course, apple and google will eventually gimp mobile web apps sooner or later when it starts to hurt their vendor lock in.

    get while the gettings good.

    @Fast-Nop The PWA Guy has built an awesome PWA for DevRant but dfox humiliated him by blocking API requests. He wants to focus on native app.

    @theabbie well the API was blocked all the time for web, it’s just that the proxy can’t be used for everyone because of the Indian attack.

    Also, he temporarily stopped working on it because he’s waiting for new changes, or, more likely faster, rewrites devRant completely on an open source basis with OAS3 and top notch, modern tech.

    @bagfox dfox did humiliate him and he will never be forgiven for that

    @theabbie nah he also has a working cluster proxy to avoid that, he just keeps it hidden so far

    @theabbie he made him kiss his shoes? Damn

    @rooter He's at higher authority and feels insecure, he's afraid of the PWA Guy.

    @theabbie I think its more along the lines that he doesnt want the api potentially abused and maybe plans on monetizing when the community grows some more.

    those are pretty reasonable expectations all things considered.

    @Wisecrack He doesn't seem like a greedy guy, we are still safe from ads, he has a full time job too. DevRant was a side-project and he isn't expecting a career from this.

    @theabbie its hard to predict what anyones back-of-the-mind would-be hopes or potential plans are.

    a lot can change on a dime.

    edit:
    I wouldnt mind a service that does makeshift apis. Uses a webscraper with a DSL that lets users "build" or "attach" an api to a service or website. I think theres a need for that.

    @theabbie I don't know but it reminds me about bank X (PayPal) as described in Elon Musk s biography. Want a part two ik few decades

    @theabbie when did dfox humiliate him? and did he have good reason?
  • 2
    @calmyourtities I exaggerated it, but he did discourage PWA,

    Not a bug but a feature ๐Ÿ˜‰

    @theabbie maybe the community needs flutter one. that way there's a consistent, good looking desktop, web and mobile app that works well.
  • 3
    @calmyourtities what does the framework to do with that? His PWA was already web, Android and iOS optimized.

    And I’d say the community doesn’t drastically grow in size anymore, unless we really want, well.. certain kinds of people I don’t wanna get into now.

    The highs are over

    @bagfox maybe dfox will adopt it or something. a flutter one would work on most every platform and it would still be compiled so it would be faster and less buggy than this js version

    @bagfox people that say 'yes' a lot?
