I have some good news! Eternity has finally been added to the main F-Droid repo. I've managed to get reproducible builds working, so this version is the same as the one on Codeberg (but verified by F-droid).
It's been some time since our last update. As the version number indicates, this is primarily a bugfix update; hence, it doesn’t bring the "big new feature" I had hoped to introduce. The most important change here is that this version of Eternity will be compatible with the upcoming Lemmy version 0.19.
It's worth noting that upon upgrading to this version, you may need to log out and then log back into your account, based on my experience.
For the next release, I want to address more of the common issues found in our bug tracker. So, there may be another minor update shortly, but I can't make any promises at the moment. I've also made some progress with multi-community support and I plan to introduce modding tools as well.
In the meantime, thank you so much for your continued support.
Can result in some pretty funny looking posts tho, maybe don't fix
I can't find it in the settings but is there any way to sort comments by popularity instead of time? Just like it is in normal reddit?
Apparently, if a post has more than 999 upvotes, it will wrap the number to the next line.
When viewing a post with no comments, it still displays the old eternity logo instead of the new one in the comments section.
This is one of the features that I like the most of Infinity for reddit because it allows me to see all the subs I like without having to login in the app.
I love Eternity btw, great work!
Maybe it's my sausage fingers, but I often end up opening the post comments instead of upvoting and moving on as I intend.
My phone language is german, but I use Eternity in english. Every 2-3 days the menu items in the drawer menu on the left switch to german. The rest of the app stays in english. A quick switch back and forth between languages in the misc settings fixes it, but only short term.
Bonus Bug: There's a typo in the language selection settings. It should be called "Deutsch" instead of "Deutsche".
I've tried several ways to get the filter block to work. But it just won't filter out the keyword that i put in. How does it work? I can't figure it out.
Wrong image displayed in Home-View, correct image displayed when viewing just the post. This happened multiple times with various post.
Sometimes, the Home-View would switch to the correct image after viewing the post, sometimes not.
When tapping on the wrong image in Home-View to view just the image, the correct image gets displayed. Leaving this mode, the wrong image is displayed again.
Image-View (via Home-View):
Just that... It seems the app fails to fetch a user's posts or comment history when tapping on him.
Is it just me that Eternity becomes laggy when scrolling on multiple images? I tried scrolling the post on lemmy website and it works just fine. post example
Not sure how feasible this would be, but my favourite Reddit app (Joey) has this feature.
It allows a user to "follow" an arbitrary post or comment and receive an notifications when new comments or replies are posted. E.g. "Post 'abc' has 9 new comments" or "Comment 'xyz' has 3 new replies".
Useful for keeping up with active threads which have gotten buried in the feed due to age, as well as cases of "I have that question too, and would love to know the answer if someone responds".
Anyway, thanks Bazsalanszky for an already great app! It is my current most-used Lemmy app.
How do you add a community to Favourites in the side bar? I've already added one at some point in the past and can't remember how I accomplished that.
What is Lazy Mode?
I often find image posts where clicking on the thumbnail doesn't load the picture and shows a generic error message. If I copy the image link, I can open it ok in the browser. I haven't been able to tie this to specific instances or communities, so I don't know what might be causing it.
Has anyone else seen this issue?
I tried cross-posting from within the app, but the results were not what I expected when compared to the Lemmy desktop UI.
Cross-posting using the Eternity app yields this result: https://sh.itjust.works/post/8099344
- Post URL links to itself (not very useful)
- Post body contains only the name of the original community with no link or content
Cross-posting using the Lemmy desktop UI yields this result: https://sh.itjust.works/post/8144232
- Post URL links to the article (actually useful)
- Post body contains a link to the original post and quotes the content of the original post body
Hey everyone. I noticed theres an ootion in the settings to change what the tabs on top are showing, and I changed the last one from All to Multicommunities. However theres nothing there as I havent figured out how to create a multicommunity yet. Anyone have any advise? Thanks!
Feature request: Extend the upvote/downvote hitbox to include the vote tally (number) in addition to just the arrows. The arrows alone are pretty small target, and my fat finger frequently collapses the comment instead of voting.
I have had this issue for a while now that I cannot go to my previous comments or replies to my comments in my inbox, meaning I cannot tap on them to get to the post they are in.
Instead it briefly shows the post, then all content is gone and its a completely empty page. Just see the top and bottom bar essentially.
How to reproduce, just go to your profile, go to comments or posts you made, tap on one. Same for replies in my inbox.
As far as I understand, there's currently no feature in Lemmy to follow or bookmark users. Creating bookmarks for other users just in the Eternity app would still be useful though. By that i just mean some list of user accounts, no custom feed of their posts. The Sync App currently has such a feature, called "Favourites".
When visiting some community or some user account, I would like to be able to get to an overview of their instance, primarily, to see what kind of communities are on that instance, and to see the main feed of that instance. That would be particularly helpful for themed instances, like country-specific instances. The Connect App currently has this feature.
Being able to search for an instance or to search some instance for posts/communities/users might also be helpful to some but is less desired by me.
Overall, Eternity is still my preferred Lemmy App, particularly because of its UI, but some other apps have features I would enjoy here as well.
Eternity is a free and open-source Lemmy client, forked from Infinity for Reddit!
