What a beautiful morning.
Heard my phone going crazy because of notifs.
Turned on DND.
Made myself a coffee.
Drunk the coffee.
Looked at phone.
Email from paypal.
Hello you have received donation.
Looking at how much (expecting like 5$ or less) 20$ ?????????
Wtf the guy did go crazy ??????
Looking at XDA.
Hi, i have sent you a donation. I hope you can get that money to good use. Thank you for your hard work on our old device.
Really good morning.9
Introducing new Notif filters! Now on mobile, all your notifications are broken up into category tabs and you can clear each category separately. No more digging for mentions!
Also we just released a new image preview for when a rant is shared on FB, Twitter, etc. which includes the ranter's avatar image. You can see it by sharing a rant on social media, or check out an example here: devrant.com/rants/1036286/image.png (if you change the rant ID, you can see others)46
Me: **posts 🔥rant**
Me: **gets flood of devRant notifs**
Coworker: "What push API are you testing?"
One of the coolest good bye message I have ever seen in my company...
The code is so clean with proper comments...11
Hey everyone - I just wanted to update our Android users on the push notification crash that has been occurring.
The good news is the issue should be fixed in the update I just pushed out (should be available in the Google Play Store within a few hours). We apologize for the crashes and thank everyone for their patience.
I'm still looking in to what actually happened here. Our GCM library hasn't been updated in a while and all of a sudden a specific case started failing. I'll continue to look in to how that seemingly happened with no changes in the app. Some other users of the library started experiencing the same issue.26
"Hi, I'd like to hear a TCP joke."
"Hello, would you like to hear a TCP joke?"
"Yes, I'd like to hear a TCP joke."
"OK, I will tell you a TCP joke."
"Are you ready to hear a TCP joke?"
"Yes, I am ready to hear a TCP joke."
"OK, I am about to send the TCP joke. It will last 10 seconds, has 2 characters, it does not have a setting, it ends with a punchline."
"OK, I am ready to get the TCP joke that will last 10 seconds, has 2 characters, does not have a setting, and ends with a punchline."
"I'm sorry, your connection has been timed out."
"Hello, would you like to hear a TCP joke?"6
I tagged myself in a comment, and it notified me... 😆
No idea if this is a DevRant thing of a DevRantron thing.. Both..?33
Hey everyone! Recently there was a bug discovered which caused many (but not all) “user x posted a new rant” subscription notifs (both in-app and push) to not get sent out for the last week or so. It should be fixed now. Unfortunately though, they won’t be backfilled, so make sure you take a look at your favorite ranters’ profiles since you might not have been notified about their most recent rants.
A big thanks to @gitpush for reporting the issue and thanks to @linuxxx for help testing/confirming the fix worked.
For the basic cause: when we overhauled/fixed push notifs on Android in the last build (about a week ago), we had to convert to FCM. When a “user posted rant” notification was getting sent out, the asynchronous worker would process all of the subscription notifs in a loop. So for users who have a lot of subscribers, somewhere in the loop, something was failing, likely having to do with the new FCM send method. This is now fixed and all push notifs in that worker are also done asynchronously.
Let me know if you have any questions and apologies for the loss of subscription notifs!14
Had an interview in a MNC company.
He: Propose a solution for reading huge logs file like 1 GB and parse errors with today's date.
Me: Gave two solution, one with regex and second with buffering the logs (reason: reading the entire in same shot will cause cpu spike with huge memory consumption) and I fell in love with my second approach. By the way it was on paper.
He: (Without seeing the logic) Your syntax is wrong.
Me: Got frustrated who the hell checks syntax in interview. I asked how may years of experience you have?
He: 10 years.
Me: I don't wanna continue, and I left.5
Finished an MVP of my garage-opener-thingamajig!
Basically I decided I wanted to control my garage from my app. Retail solutions are expensive af. As a dev, the choice was easy!
DHT temperature sensor
Nativescript + Angular
Result: i can open my garage anywhere, safely (sorta?) via firebase, and get push notifs when it gets opened (from hcsr04), which triggers the pi camera, while also getting live temp feeds (this one is kinda for the giggles and utterly pointless but NUMBERZ!)
Anyway - fun side project! First version of my app looks like this. Its very rough, and I have a couple more details I wanna display, but for a first time app I'm happy!11
Recently I got into contact with the supplier of that 500W power supply that I've been servicing earlier, as I lost my pictures of the disassembly process with that craptacular Nexus 6P (didn't back them up.. terrible sysadmin, am I not?) and wanted to get the circuit diagrams of this thing in order to repair it. Sales girl wanted to give it to me but she'd have to ask the factory people.. and of course those people denied. As if I wanted to use this for anything but to repair my own bloody unit.. pieces of shit.
So I started considering buying a second one, in order to repair my current supply that I've already spent half a week on to document its components, desolder it, clean it up and resolder it (and replace some resistors here and there with better ones from my own assortment). And the project had to be paused because I lost the stupid pictures and couldn't for the love of God figure out how there's supposed to be a jumper near BD2.
Just now going through my notifs..
"Someone ++'d your rant!"
A rant that I completely forgot about.. https://devrant.com/rants/1757297. It's a perfect picture of the supposed jumper near BD2 that I was scratching my head about for so long. Turns out that it's just a dupe of the LF2 lines that I erroneously wrote down twice. DevRant, it's good for more than just venting, haha! Time to restore from a cloud backup XD4
Trying to setup server monitoring for one server (will deploy it on all my servers once this works well).
Getting these email notifs to work is a bitch 😅
(can't do pushover etc since those require GCM and I've got Google blocked out of my phone)20
// devRant unofficial UWP update (v2.0.0-beta7)
After "Active Discussions" (implemented in v2.0.0-beta5), it was time to implement the last missing app section, "Collabs".
This is the biggest update since the start of the public beta, over 100 changes (new features, improvements, fixes).
- Support for Collabs
- Notifs Tabs
- & more... read the entire changelog here: https://jakubsteplowski.com/en/...
Microsoft Store: https://microsoft.com/store/apps/...
I'm really happy to announce that the unofficial UWP client has now 100% of the features available on the official Android and iOS apps (if we don't count Push Notifs 😝 but they will arrive soon too).
It took several months of hard work, but I made it... it's here, it reached the level I wanted to reach since the beginning of this project (May 2016) (if we don't count Push Notifs).
I did it a lot of times, but I think they deserve it everytime, I would like to thank all the people who made this possible, all the active users, who opened issues, suggested features, or just used my app and had fun, posted positives (and negatives, motherfuckers, just kidding, maybe) reviews on Microsoft Store etc.
The entire community who made me want to do this project.
You're amazing guys!
Of course this is not the end of this project, I want to bring the app out of the beta and support it until I will be able to do it, releasing updates almost simultaneously with @dfox and @trogus.
Planned to be done:
- Support for Anniversary Update
- Push Notifs
- Custom Themes
- Close the 15+ issues (features requests, fixes) on the issue tracker on GitHub
- Ranti by @Alice: Your devRant Assistant <- I really hope it will become a thing :)
- Your future suggestions -> post them here: https://github.com/JakubSteplowski/...
Thanks for the attention,
*pulls down Android notifications*
*Scrolls through ≈ virtual 70 cm of devRant notifs*
Anyone else think devRant should have a setting to enable for merging all notifications into one notification card linking to notifs Activity that has running totals of ++s and comments?10
Quick'n'dirty devrant filter for tampermonkey (frontpage, comments, mentions in comments, notifs), since there's no block/ignore function, bye to whoever lands on that 👋3
EFFICIENCY IS A FUCKING JOKE.
By no means I say that I am smart or genius or anything above average. I consider myself mediocre dude who goes through by the day making ends meet.
But holy shit!!! The kind of people I work with are absolute bonkers man. I kid you not guys, these folks are paid 2 times than me and perform 1/3rd of my output.
A simple tasks requires entire team to brainstorm for 2 months only for all of the discussion being rejected by management. The same task I pick up, deliver top quality in 2 days.
And then they wonder where they do wrong. Every team is pointing at us. Fights and arguments everywhere. Delays and then some more delays. Management is pissed for under-performing. Our VP knows his shit and is a nice approachable dude. He literally hand holds the entire team for hours everyday instead of doing his job so that these idiots can learn. BUT THEY REFUSE TO.
I am put in charge or Product and Process innovation. So, one day I setup a meeting to explain them that we need to try new approaches, change our mindset, and be willing to take smaller risks until we finalise the new processes.
They are good people. But intellectually they are not capable to perform basic tasks. Entire team gets on a Zoom call and spends 45 minutes because the Boomer wants to turn on his Slack notifs which he accidentally muted while scheduling a Zoom meeting via Outlook. I don't even understand how that shit is even related to cause the fuck up.
None of them know how to do it, they refuse to Google. Fuck they don't even know how or what to Google, and just make things happen on Trial and Error basis.
I always used get stressed out thinking whenever I am deliver my 3 week long tasks in 3 days and then imposter kicks in. But now I know, the idiots are not only inefficient but also incompetent.
You cannot help anyone who refuse to accept it.
The sole job of a Product Manager is to solve problems and know WHY they are doing what they are doing. These geniuses have never learned the word WHY and don't know what it means.
Yesterday, I decided to connect with my new team member on LinkedIn. She has mentioned in her Bio: 'Excellent communication skills'
Fuck me in arse if I am lying, but talking to her makes me feel that Vicki and Irona has more sensation in their voice and can better express their emotions than this monotonous living being. Grammar and sentence structuring does not exist for them.
I am surely in a wrong place when it comes to working with 'smart coworkers'. However, the only good thing is, I get to do whatever the fuck I want in my own way working on innovation and new tech. So I am utilising time to learn as much as I can and then bounce off from here to a much larger show.
And now they put me back into testing every release end because I am 'efficient' and complete my task on time with quality. So let's fuck Floyd further by giving him shitty work so that his deliverables are delayed while we help other teams. This is like punishing me for being productive.
Zero communication skills.
Zero industry or product knowledge.
Zero humour or social skills.
Zero ability to take risks or try new stuff.
Zero role related skill.
God! this infuriates me so much. Do smart colleagues exist who lift you up or you are the only one who drag the entire team forward?17
Hey all - I made a big update to in app "x replied to a rant you commented on" in app notif to try to fix some bugs/scaling issue.
Please let me know if you notice any weirdness/notif issues. Thanks.5
Self induced devRant rage.
I like to pull the "recent" feed up and put it on a third of one of my monitors staying out of the way, but letting me glance over to see new posts or new notifications without depending on the iOS app.
So I put this page on a 5 minute cron reload, so the feed and notifs will update.
Then I get a notification and go to the rant and wrote out like a long ass comment to somebody.
And as some of you have already guessed, just as I was about to post this long ass comment the five minute cron timer ran out and my fucking browser page reloaded.
TL;DR ~ I have played myself.4
When you want to watch a series before going to bed but first check devrant for notifications: 37.
"ok that is doable"
One hour later "10 left to go".
I keep getting new notifs which I have to reply to again...
Why is devRant so active?26
Me: * Browses devRant for about 10 minutes *
Phone: 0 notifications
Me: * Puts phone in pocket *
Phone: * seizures in pocket *
Phone: 3 new Jira issues, 9 Sentry warnings about critical bugs, 2 emails from my boss, roughly 60 Whatsapp messages and 3 new notifs on Slack
Why does this happen so often :/3
!rant && Announcement
I am working on a DEVRANT TOOLBOX for the Firefox Desktop Browser.
It includes a dark mode and some new functions (autoreload, colored notifs, image preview on mouseover).
The Alpha version is finished.
As a first step I created an experimental version just for the dark mode (no other functions).
Its alpha and experimental, so I will not not published it.
I need some testers for it. My email is temporary available in my users profile for that.17
!rant && Announcement
The closed beta for the new DEVRANT TOOLBOX is starting for chrome users.
The Toolbox is an UNOFFICIAL web extension for Chrome and Firefox.
- Compact mode: reduced image height in the feeds
- Extended page navigation controls for feeds
- Timestamps for rants
- Image preview on mouseover
- Autoreload for the recent feed (180 sec)
- Highlighting new rants after a reload (recent feed only, see screenshot)
- Highlighting own rants (inside feeds) and comments (inside rants)
- Hiding personal scores (still visible by mouseover) and share buttons inside rants
- Colored notifs (different colors for the notif types)
- Notifs with clickable usernames: a click will open the rant AND the username (in a different tab)
- 3 additional Themes: Black, Monochrome, Dark blue
(Next themes to come: solarized light and dark)
- Global history.back on rightclick (for faster navigation)
- Increased feed width (see screenshot)
- Plain background (just the feed on screen)
- Weekly rant
All features can be switched on/off.
The weekly rant is a temporary feature. It uses the devrant api.
I will remove it when that feature is added to the original devrant webfeed.
@dfox: If you dont like the use of the api or some of the features please contact me.
Chrome users can join this group to get the beta:
I NEED SOME FEEDBACK!!!
Therefore a feedback is my term of use.
Please post it as a comment (or in the google group).7
A woman in hot air balloon realized she is lost...
She reduced altitude & shouted to a man below: Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend to meet him an hour ago but I don't know where I am.
Man below replied: You are in hot air balloon 30 feet above the ground. You are at 41 degree North latitude & 59 degree West longitude.
Lady: You must be an engineer.
Man: How do you know?
Lady: Everything you told me is technically correct but useless & the fact is I'm still lost.
Engineer: You must be in Top Management.
Lady: Ya. How do you know?
Engineer: You don't know where you are or where you're going, you have no technical knowledge.
You made a promise, which you've no idea how to keep & you expect people beneath you to solve your problems..!!
// devRant unofficial UWP update (v18.104.22.168)
I decided to release another "big" update before v2, with some interesting and useful features already present in the official clients and a completly new feature suggested by users present ONLY here ("hide notifs already seen").
I hope you enjoy it! 😉
- Added weekly rant banner to rants with 'wk' in tags;
- Added avatars in notif list;
- Added ability to hide notifs already seen;
- Added 'draft Rant', you can now write a Rant without posting it, it will be automatically saved and available to be posted later;
- Updated Swag Store, now always up to date;
- Updated 'Mute notifs from this rant', now except @mentions;
- Improved date format of rants;
- UI improvements;
- Minor internal changes;
Google Pay is most disastrous crap ever. The worst of all.
The app is heavy as fuck with load time of 45 seconds or more.
Lag on every screen and system often fails to capture interactions in one go due to this.
Bank accounts automatically get unlinked for no fucking reason. And with every update, this surely happens.
Countless times the bank accounts are not even detected during payments.
90% time payment fails and one has to re-attempt.
Bloated with recommendations. Fuck that.
Annoying blue dot pointers in each profile that won't go away.
No point in hiding profiles or businesses as they tend to come back to main screen again.
Navigation is confusing as shit.
One could never win the scratch card prize. NEVER.
And when the notifs are turned off, POS will shit buzz with notification.
I could go on with list of bugs in this gutter. Even though product has reached maturity stage, it fails to fix those basic issues and absolutely no innovation.
Honestly, I am soooo pissed at Google that I literally want to punch each team member with dog shit.37
Yesterday I submitted my chrome extension to the chrome web store.
Today it got accepted!
Watching the Social Dilemma. Interesting quote.
Anyone else seen it? or addicted to social media?
I'm wondering maybe because we're all tech... we sort of develop a natural immunity? or is it just me that has all social media apps' notifs turned off?
And rarely use social media... except devRant.32
Female : how hardcore aye you ?
Me : I clear all notifs in devRant even if it is 99+ all the time
Female : wow, lets get laid already3
Any chance the notifs can jump to the relevant item? When someone has commented on a rant I commented on, I want to start looking from that particular comment, not have to go through them all and wonder where the fuck i read last in that thread.
Who else finds it very satisfying to tap an notif and see all other notifs turn gray the last second you see them because they all belong to the same rant?3
I need summer projects, so I am asking for input.
I just made @devDNS, what other bots or services would you guys like to see? I cannot guarantee these will run 24/7. Probably only for a day unless people really like them.
I am currently debating a webhook service. I don't want to spam the API. Possibly it could hook into the notifs API or the Android notification service..9
I fucking HAAAAATEEEEEE the fucking damn new firefox API.
Yeah sure quntum is great but the damn API is totally fucked up and nothing is working in it correctly.
I made a extension for devRant with 500 downloads now (Yaaaay) and well i cannot implement notifs into it because well it doesnt work i cant get data from devRant when the extension is not opened.
FUUUUUUUCKKKKK that if i have to have opened extension for viewing fucking notifs then thats fucked up totally.
I mean that before they changed the fucking API notifs were showing up every minute and they were showing new Rant that poped out well i cant do that now because its mot possible to do so.
Devrant feature request:
Filter notifs so I can actually get to my mentions without scrolling through random comments and ++ notifs.2
I've been using devRantron recently to try it out. It's hard enough to be productive when I just get notifications on my phone, but getting desktop notifications that pop up over my code... how can I not immediately go look who commented on what??
So thanks guys, the app is great, but I have a love/hate relationship with the desktop notifs due to my lack of self-control.2
@dfox Would you make it possible to cluster push notifications that occur on the same post? When I receive a lot of notifs at once it clogs up my notification center.
Additionally would it be possible so that I can completely turn off seeing certain types of notifs even in the app not just for push notifications (from what I gather that is the only thing I have control over)2
Waking up and finding your Notifs panel full is like Christmas. Slowly opening every mention and ++ you get. Then, just for fun, you read every comment on rants you've commented in. Oh and comments in your own rants are the best.
What a nice start for the day.5
Just wrote a rant/story about my school day, seriously spend 10 - 15 min writing it and I was just about to post it, but boom - "Unfortunately devRant has stopped"
Sometimes with good custom ROM comes unstable updates.
P.S. if you think devRant would have saved my rant, don't worry I thought that too but when I checked it, it was empty just like my devRant notifs!!2
Today was very good day for me:
one of my friend said he is going to buy new phone as his older phone is unrepairable (Android failed to boot). I took the phone installed twrp - unlocked bootloader and then flashed cynogen os and boom! android booted up.
Now they think me as a genius and says i wrote that Android OS, i tried saying its just a hack due to open source but they still think me as a HACKER! :)6
How we click notifs in devRant.
1-1. SOMEONE mentioned you in a comment!
1-2. SOMEONE commented on your rant!
2. SOMEONE ++'d your rant!
999. SOMEONE ++'d your comment!
1000. One (or more) new comments on a rant/collab you commented on!
Sorry creators, but..... (silence, drops mic)1
Oh when did devRant start saying ++ instead of +1 in the system notifications? The notifs tab still says +1 though.6
I have been slowly noticing a bug with the devrant API. Every few hours, the API will drop a request to the notifs list.
DevDNS has rebooted 15 times since it was launched due to this. I should try-catch this, but I want it to keep happening so I can get some useful logs for @dfox16
Has anyone else noticed that the notifications screen's title is just "Notifs" even though it could've been "Notifications"?2
Please. Please please please!
Give us a setting to toggle "Mute notifs for this rant" by default.
I toggle it off on every post I comment on x.x9
SSHd to a vultr server, downloaded MongoDB docker (approx 170MB) download and extracting 70% of the image was done faster than me navigating from devRan notifs page, to devRant feed page, I need a new internet plan T_T1
Wow, I've got more than 10 notifs per hours during the last 16 hours. Do the DevRant community go to sleep sometimes ?4
Something happened overnight. 81 notifs. O_o
P.S. @JS96 Can we get some sort of "Mark All As Read" button and/or one notify that says "You have new notifys" when there's more than x amount (think like the Twitter app does)? Having to dismiss all 81 native notifications before I could get to the menu and having to tap each one to mark as read is very tedious.5
I made Skype Bot which queries the data using wsdl authentication on our ticketing tool and send the data whoever has requested in skype itself(without logging or touching the ticketing tool).
Manager: Is that even possible?
Me: (In excitement) Everything is possible if you have the will.
Now, He wants me to work on his pet project. I dont know how to react!4
A long time ago I started a project to make a devRant client with Python and Qt5.
I got far but got bored, or whatever. Was still in school, etc.
I have started from scratch again. Including a nogui mode. Sharing because I actually have made some pretty good progress in the past two days.
Plans: Besides the obvious fully-featured client: full support for plugins, custom themes, custom CLI commands. Multiple logins.
Considering a system that allows you to run a bot, and a bot framework (parsing arguments for you, marking notifs read, etc.)
And yes, it's called qtpy-rant (Pronounced cutie pie rant)3
Storytime. Go watch social dilemma on netflix NOW. You might realize how much of hacked are you in terms of generating revenue for tech companies.
Ads have been the primary source of business for every web player. those weird sayings "ïf you are not paying the product, you are the product" are true but vague. Its all simple maths. if you are scrolling on your feed, and an add pops up, and you have ANY sort of interaction with it, like slowing your scroll, swiping across its items, clicking it, viewing its comments etc, then at least one of the parties involved achieved success and generated revenue. And that party would be the one responsible for making this behavior true for millions of users and billions of ads.
social media in a gist: "We are going to give a customized version of our product to every úser, so as to change the mindset of this person towards some stuff because we are getting paid for that"
What we are losing is tremendous when studied in terms of behaviors and psychology. we are becoming addicts. addicts to those continuous scrolls, those new posts when we make a swipe up gesture, those notification pings, these nonsense recommendations that are remotely connected to our interests . No matter how much tired you are and want a sweet death like sleep, a simple "PINGG" and you wanna go back to see what is it about.
Those bell icons. Those are the fucking worst. a collection of all the notifications that will catch the center of user's attention. User hates the red number on its bar , so let's fill it with more and more notifs than required. I bet the upcoming decade will see ads in the notification bar too. those big fanged Faang giants are just waiting on one another to see who tries it out first.
Social media has shown to make young gens much more depressed fragile , nd less comfortable in taking risks fearing the backlash. the rates of getting a driver's license are decreasing while the rates of suicides and self harm among teens is increasing.Real dates are now decreasing while the viewership of porn industry is staggering. even the parents or old gens which are not much into social media are getting effected by this, because the children are transferring their fears of social media interaction to the whole family environment.
And you know who is going to be the next big player in terms of using a mass manipulating tool for commercial benefits? News and Journalism industry. And THAT WOULD BE HORRIBLE! Imagine someone paying news channels to target people with certain beliefs and presenting news in a biased manner as opposed to rational manners
social media is one of the best tools of persuasion. and in the hands of a dictator or a cult, it is more dangerous than a nuclear bomb. We think that recommendation Algorithms are designed to help us gain more knowledge as they are gonna recommend us similar content. but what these algorithms are doing is to move our attentions pan from something that we are interested in to something which is commercially profitable, in the common interest of a large group and which we might be interested in too. i can think of a million times when i went from watching college subject lectures to cat videos
We have now 4 types of political deviations : the people who are absolute supporters of the ruling party, the people who are absolute supporters of the opposition party, the critics and propaganda community which throws dirt at both and the people who are neutral and not inclined to anywhere. the propaganda community consists of social media, tools and content maker which could easily flood the streams of everyone else with the beliefs they want / are paid to and their major target is to move the natural bias of un-inclined people in a particular direction. and this is wrong, it is a wrong thing to disrupt a natural balance for personal benefits, being treated like zombies
A network provider has tons of data about us... its transferring the freaking packets of our voices and images. but it is governed by the national laws to not use them in wrongful ways. but the software industry have no laws for any kind of regulation. they can hoard as much data as they want, use it in whatever ways they want and yet call themselves as "self regulated" by paying shit tonnes of bribes.
The need to be controlled, come under government jurisdiction. taxes should be enforced on how much data they can collect as they have the power to undermine the whole democratic systems using their tools and data.
The only question that is left asking is : how to not get affected with this continuous hacking while being in this industry itself? How do i make money off this 2 edged sword that is technology without getting cut myself? How to not being a mindless zombie for these giants trying to make everyone a small node of their massive eco system?27
@dfox when will the feature of blocking users and blocking spamvotes be introduced. Im getting really annoyed by it every single time 30+ upvotes are given to my rants within a minute...
Its both ruining my overview of notifs and ruining the meaning of upvotes.21
Devrant should have a snippet of the rant that is being 1+ or commented. And should combine notifs for the same rant. Easier maybe?1
Today is my worst day!, my MacBook motherboard got burnt out and repairing cost is $750. :(
Feel like crying 😢23
The beta version of the new DEVRANT TOOLBOX is available now.
Its an unofficial web extension for Chrome and Firefox.
Chrome Web Store:
The certifaction process takes a long time, therefore I provided a direct download for the xpi file (for side loading).
Additional features: DUAL FRAME MODE (feeds left, rants right), themes (black, mono, darkgray, darkblue, comic, solarized), scrollbar plugin (perfect scrollbar, FF only), extended controls, fixed header, sorted userprofiles (by votes), autoreload (recent feed, 180 sec), highlighting new rants (recent feed), personal filter, image preview (mouseover), keyboard shortcuts, timestamps for rants, compact mode, colored notifs with clickable usernames, weekly rant.
I tested the extension with Windows Browsers only.
It would be great to get a feedback how it works with other systems!
Have fun with the toolbox.7
For a second while looking through my notifs I thought someone cheesed the avatar system. Turns out everyone did 🤷🏻♂️
I made a wordpress website to one of my friends long time back as he wants to teach online and sell his videos. (he is studying MBBS)
Yesterday suddenly he calls me and says our site has been compromised and its not longer secure.
Me: After seeing screenshot, no actually site doesn't have ssl and in recent chrome updates http site is being flagged.
He: Okay, I saw video on youtube how to buy ssl.
Me: its not just installing the certs, all the links and images has to be on https so it will take sometime for me.
He: Today, Website is no longer opening please help after putting ssl as per the video...
Me: What the hell? Who asked you to do that? Are you nuts?
He:................. Sorry, 😐2
I found a bug in the web app. (Yes, i will go to https://github.com/devRant/devRant/...). If you don't have an avatar you get the avatar url https://avatars.devrant.com/undefin... in the notifs (which doesnt exist)3
Is there a way to hide ++ and notifs from the UI itself
I am thinking about the current UI, seems like it is designed to “catch-up”.
A more refreshing design would be where i get to hide all the ++ and notifs from the UI itself.
That way App engagement is solely based on my realistic interest rather than an need for external validation9
@dfox can i suppress the "New comment on a rant you commented on!" notifs? Is there a toggle somewhere?11
Wow! Giving Thanks this morning for the new devRant upgrade. Tag suggestions, links open in app, mute notifs... Thanks devRant team
One my junior was trying to re-build the code for 2 hours, he tried every possible ways: clean - build - rebuild - run and tried several times changing the codes. Then asked me for help, I just stopped the current running process in task bar and rebuild it. It worked!
He started starting at me like I wrote Windows OS :)
@dfox please add a option for not getting these "comments on a ront you commented on" notifs, they are annoping af11
!Rant, rather a small question.
Few weeks back I have provided Python lectures to my teammates and they were so happy that my manager raised my name for one of the major python resource (though my core work is CMDB, just to ease my work I have learnt Python).
Today I came to know I have been SPOC from offshore liable for entire integration team in JAVA. I don't have much knowledge in JAVA and without asking me they gave me. I'm confused what to do? (Write a mail and say No or simply accept this new challenge) :(16
Feature request: Able to subscribe to a rant and get notifs without having to leave a comment on it @dfox3
the pet project I thought would take 2 weeks but took waaayy longer -.-
tries to get dimensions from the width, works half the time, will make a setup process in the beginning eventually and allow people to change the values.
Background download, lockscreen and wallpaper all use different methods, trying to see which one works better, doesn't use a separate background process by itself hence easier on the system resources.
the "dismiss" is there just so the notifs carry images in phone. Somehow, notifs with just images and no buttons didn't show the images on phone, hence a temporary workaround, will be replaced with actual buttons later :p
Search and sketch don't work the way I want em to, are there but not accessible, will be there eventually.
tips? things I should change? anything?
And not the final logo, took it from a sample package to submit it, will tinker with the logo thing later :p
I gues devrant android app got an update recently [last week?]? Notifications suddenly started to work. Yayy!
But in-app notifications broke. More often than not either tab in notifs [all, ++, comments, etc.] loads nothing and there's no way to re-fetch data manually. If _all_ breaks I have to browse each category manually to see what's new.
Is it just me or is anyone else experiencing this?
Galaxy s7 edge, stock everything.
P.S. I rarely get to rant about devrant :)
Every time I open devRant, I have >0 Notifs. Why am I never notified by Android about this anymore? I used to get one Android notification for each devRant notif in the list. Now, my phone never goes off for any of them and nothing from devRant appears in my android notifications. I did not change my settings. Running latest app version on Android 6.
Glad to be back to some IRC servers that managed to not die off and ZNC bouncer got so much neat default and external plugins now, for example you can get push notifs if you want: https://github.com/jreese/znc-push1
Did something happen with notifs? The app says I have 71 unread notifs, but in reality I only had 5 unreads and the rest was just old (read) stuff.
The 'comments' category is marked as if it still has some unread stuff in it, even though it doesn't.
@dfox Feature request: could you add the "pull down to refresh" feature to the notifs and rant windows please? xox2
You know what would be nice? The Devrant desktop client having the same functionality as the mobile client, like for example 'mute notifs for this rant'. If someone could JS that, that would be cool.2
Did anyone else notice a sudden drop in battery backup after devRant update with push notifs?
I have muted the notifs, but I guess the app still makes the calls to show notifications, but why would that take so much battery.
PS. : I haven't installed any other apps in the past few days.4
All people are happy except me as Reliance (Service Provider) giving Unlimited 4G Unlimited Calls and many service Unlimited till December and I cannot use that SIM because I have Windows Phone :(3
@-red thanks for the ++ bomb man <3
Thank goodness I don't have notifs enabled for devrant, or my phone would be dead already :D1
whenever I hear my phone vibrate in the background I open a new tab with devRant and check the new notifs.2
Thank you @-red and @R1100 for both destroying my notification box! You both got me to 69 notifs, make of that what you will.
There seem to be some push notification weirdness with my device.
push notifications are shown like couple of hours after I've seen them in Notifs. up to like 6-7 hours.
One of the client wants simple website with ecommerce gateway. Can someone suggest me whether using WordPress with plugin will be an good idea?3
I gotta say, devRantron is awesome guys, congratulations! One issue though I'm having (it's probably not devRantron's issue) is that notifs from other Electron apps appear under devRantron in the notifications indicator on Elementary OS 😂 but no problem :)
Does anyone else's notifs glitch out on here? I keep clearing them but every time I load it back up my notifications are back - currently up to 16 and they won't go away10
Today one of the user complained me that my account has been hacked and someone is using it. I asked how can you say that then he replied "Whenever I hit enter after typing the password, its getting extended !"
I was like - "Please kill me!"2
Today I called my ISP and shouted what the hell is your wireless service, I cannot even open youtube. Then they asked from what time you had the issue we are not able to see any data.
All of a sudden I saw I was disconnected from dongle and got connected to Wifi automatically (So i was on wifi). I feel ashamed then all of a sudden I scolded them and told yes because of your shitty service am not able to use!! :)25
A minor bug, which might already been reported but if not then here it is
The notification panel keeps showing the number of notifs haven't checked yet even after opening that rant from other comment or +1. Also maybe it should be returned to zero after checking the panel1
Has anyone noticed after the subscribe feature, they check Feeds less and just look for new Notifs?
Or is that just me?6
I felt a bit sorry for MS this morning so logged into dev rant using MS Edge only to see that my notifs are completely missing, don't even render lol. Every time I try something like this I wind up going back to chrome (which I am using now) within minutes. Edge genuinely is a terrible browser, (and I think I'm right in thinking is the most expensive one ever developed). Goes to show you can't compete with wealth!6
People who have seem my rants know am a calm person.. But watch out for what's coming next:
AAAAAAAAGGGGHHHH !FUCK YOU STUPID CHEAP PHONE!!
was coming home after tiring college exam, thankfully got my spirits uplifted coz of my crush's message...
So , we were chatting, i was having fun flirting with my little cuteness nd was telling her some tale about how me nd friends were partying some day....
She was so into it and was getting into her naughty mode when suddenly this asshole went off... Had got 15% notification just a second ago, thought "yeah i have some time to connect" but this shit went out from 15 to 1 in a matter of seconds!!!?!, nd that too without notifs.
Fuck man, i lost such a nice moment today X(
(Ps: am using this shit micromax phn just because my old phn is at service center)
Please remove "One (or more) new comments on a rant you commented on!" From the comments part of Notifs.
I keep getting catfished.
When you realize that your company's git doesn't support smth like emailing or notifs, when commenting on bugs/merge requests/etc. and you manually have to tell those ones via other channels, that you just wrote smth/responded to them.
As a co-maintainer of a personal project I feel spoilt now, for having this functionality for free, but ... oh dear2
I don't know if anyone else has had this issue, but how on earth do you clear the notifications for this app? Driving me nuts right now!
Hey devrant , make the notifs sec like you can swipe rather than select the comment column or the ++'s column , I just want to swipe right and left rather than select them columns6
Anyone else getting this notification bug? It keeps telling me I have like 63 notifs but when I open it nothing appears as unread?20
I'm very confused by the notifs , everything ok? @dfox
I should mention I have gotten some 20+ mins late (I know cause they mention me whilst I look at the rant and then I get it)
devRanters every 5 minutes be like "I haz new notifs???"
PS - devs: I just implemented GCM for my employer's mobile app. it's easy and it's free. you can notify us of our notifs ;)3
I have shut off notifications for "new comments on a rant you commented on!", but I still get notified of them. Does anyone else have the same problem?1
I'm digging the new GH notifications UI (beta):
It might not (yet) be available to you.
What's nice is that notifications can now be shown regardless of (un)read state (but you can still only show unread notifs). This means that you can read all notifications and not lose track of everything that you have read. Just mark notifications as 'done' when you're done, but until them just leave them in the list and/or save them for later. The UI is also responsive to the browser window, which is much better than before, because a lot of context and content now is shown! And it is possible to handle issues and PRs from the notification screen itself, which basically adds some additional UI elements to the regular issue/PR screens.
And earlier this week the GH Android app went into beta too: https://play.google.com/apps/...
It's a good week to be a GH user!
Is devrant developers using dark patterns in this app? I have set my notifications on only for direct mentions of me but there are tons of unrelated notifs;
1. Somebody ++ d your comment/rant
2. One or more comment on a rant...(can only be disabled manually)
I dont care about these notifs and I have minimum notif setting. What is the point providing settings that does not work.9
