Sadly we have no control over that, usually it takes 3-7 days

This is for Lemmy only right?

Do you mean lemmur only? If so then yes, these translations are for lemmur.

while Lemmur is missing many stuff.

Do you mean anything specific? As far as I can see all lemmur strings are synced up with Lemmy ones (of course we are using only a subset of Lemmy strings, so perhaps this is what you are refering to)

It was released yesterday, so within a week it should be on fdroid as well :)

Like said, let me know which version you are using.

Hmm, I added it successfully without any issues. Was it working on 0.7.0 for you?

This release includes support for lemmy v0.15.0 and lemmur is finally translation-ready! Lemmy devs are kindly hosting lemmur translation strings on their [Weblate instance]( Feel free to contribute strings there, we regularly sync string changes with Weblate. We wanted to make sure that all the efforts that went into translating Lemmy do not go to waste and thus we ported to our Weblate as many translations as we could (~130 strings). We use flutter's native file format for translations: ARB, which itself uses the ICU message syntax. In most cases you will be able to deduce the syntax based on the source string. Here are 3 important examples: #### 1. Placeholders `Hello there {name}!` - placeholders are put in a pair of braces, it will be later replaced with an appropriate value. #### 2. Plurals `You have {amount} new {amount, plural, =0{messages} =1{message} =2{messages} few{messages} many{messages} other{message}}` - plurals are checked against their quantifier and provide 6 possible forms to choose from. In English this example does not make much sense, since we could just provide the `=1{message}` and `other{messages}` case. `other` case always has to be specified, it acts as a fallback. #### 3. Selects `I will take a {distance_name, select, close{bus} far{train} veryFar{plane}}.` - selects allow for arbitrary matching against some predefined cases. All cases should be the same as in the source string.

New lemmy version had breaking changes, we will release today a new version supporting it

Sounds like a good feature, will be easier to implement once we have “linkable comments”, meaning we are able to link to/scroll to a specific comment on a post. Materialized it into a feature request:

We definitely want the instances experience to be as seamless as possible, so this sounds like a good idea

This is a good place to request features :) We have it planned, and it is within the NLnet scope:

Update: flutter released a new version with a fix, so our next release should get rid of this bug

If possible open an issue on GitHub with details. If not, could you send me the details in a message/here? Version/instance/logs would be very helpful. (You can find logs in settings > about lemmur > logs)

We have not changed anything bandwidth related in 0.7.0, did you experience the same problem with 0.6.0?

As to it being slow, could you give some concrete examples? It would help us in fixing them.

Absolutely amazing! Thank you,, and all contributors for this incredible technical feat! This is very promising and I hope to see Lemmy rise to the top :D I’m honored to be involved in this project

This feature will be part of the ‘live updates’ feature listed in the NLnet milestones, so will definitely get to it

Please check my comment above. It’s not that lemmur can’t handle it, we just don’t alter your password. Sorry for exposing your old password length :P

Please check this thread:

This is a bug in lemmy where it will trim your password to 60chars without telling you. We don’t do any trimming hence it rejects your credentials.

So if any of you have a password longer than 60 chars, FYI your actual password is only the first 60 chars

In this release we have done quite a bit of internal refactoring which will hopefully result in a more stable and consistent experience as well as help us implement new features faster. Notable new features include blocking and reporting. Also logging was adding, which will help us debug problems on users' end. Note: all logs are kept in memory and are not persisted nor sent anywhere. Full changelog: ### Added - Blocking of users and communities (from post and from comment) - Reporting posts and comments - Android theme-aware splash screen (thanks to [@mimi89999]( - Logging: local logs about some actions/errors. Can be accessed from **settings > about lemmur > logs** ### Fixed - Fixed a bug where post would go out of sync with full version of the post - Fixed a bug where making a comment selectable would not always result in making the comment selectable - Full post will now open no matter where you press on the post card - Fixed overflows in various places ### Changed - User banner photo now fits better on user profile

Sadly we have not yet set up any translations server. So currently we cannot accept help.

Please log out and log back in on instances using Lemmy 0.13.0
Lemmy 0.13.0 invalidated all authentication tokens meaning your current account will cause infinite spinners in lemmur. This has showed us that we should improve invalid auth handling, hence I have created a report for that:

Mod features are further down the list but yes we are aware. We want to first finish more user focused features

Whiteboard recommendations? (or alternatives)
When solving problems (math/computer science) I often scribble on some random sheets of paper to visualize my ideas or to save progress of some temporary solutions. I hate it, it's a mess and a waste of paper. I've been thinking of getting something like a whiteboard for a while and I want to finally commit. Does anybody have any recommendations for a whiteboard or a whiteboard-like (for example an interactive board) product? From experience I know that whiteboards get dirty quickly and require to be cleaned with alcohol regularly. Alternatives I have considered and subsequently disregarded: - blackboard (chalk dust in my room, no thanks) - graphical tablet for my laptop (I want something that would always be on display, not hidden away in a file) - tablet with a stylus (same as above)

I fixed it yesterday, once the changes are accepted by krawieck we will release an updated version.

refresh the repos maybe? I’m not sure how to force F-Droid to check for updates. It shows correctly 0.4.2 on the web:

New community: Cubing
Community revolving around cubing - the activity of solving Rubik’s-cube like puzzles on time or just for fun

I’m very happy to hear that!

but lacks a lot of QoL features.

lack functionalities

In case of any feature requests/bug reports I invite y’all to post about them in !, we translate them into trackable tasks for development so we will eventually get to those :)

My favorite extensions are the ones that remove annoying overlays: hide top bar and pixel saver

Dickbars, I like that, I’ll start using it

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We went ahead and sent a cease and desist to this company. The animal lemur is a registered trademark of lemmur inc. and such blatant ripoffs will not be accepted.

Sadly, this release will log you out of all accounts once again. We are aware it is annoying and hope to reduce the amount of times it happens. On the bright side, this release includes support for password managers when logging in so it should be easier to restore all accounts. In other news the keyboard experience throughout the app was improved (for example, before when writing a comment your keyboard would not capitalize letters in sentences) like showing correct keyboard types and providing native hints for your OS. You can also select text in places where you'd expect it to be possible. _also, this time this release actually fixes the thing we supposedly fixed in v0.4.1, sorry for that_ Full changelog: ### Changed - Enhanced keyboard experience - appropriate keyboard types are opened - correct capitalization - added text input hints for things like password managers - Account actions in settings are more obvious to access: long press an account/instance to see possible actions such as setting as default or removal - Disable commenting on locked posts ### Added - When writing a comment, the parent text is now selectable - Text of a post is now selectable - Tapping outside of a text input hides the keyboard ### Fixed - Actually fixed the thing that v0.4.1 supposedly fixed

This addresses an issue where the wrong data was sometimes loaded due to an incorrect user ID.

I’m pretty sure Lemmy adheres to semver (which is a popular versioning scheme). As the name suggests, versions are “semantic”, so they convey a meaning: the 1.0.0 release will be the one where Lemmy can be called stable, afaik this is still far ahead.

so Lemmur assumes “oh, they must be posting on a sopuli instance too”

Actually no, we take the origin host of the post and display that. I think we misunderstood what origin host in the API actually indicates, I will have to investigate. This misunderstanding might manifest itself in more places

This post seems to be originally from the sopuli instance:, so lemmur displays the origin instance host. Isn’t that the expected behavior?

We had a similar idea in lemmur, though we were thinking about the bias it causes rather than the anxiety. But of course anxiety about scores is also a very valid reason to hide them. Therefore we will hold off with implementing it and wait for the official user setting to appear :)

Been using croc for some time now, it’s great. Especially useful for transferring files between my pc and my laptop

**WARNING**: due to some internal changes your local settings will be reset (logged out of accounts, removed instances, theme back to default) In this release we focused on implementing missing core features: inbox, saved posts, messages, modlog. We also had our second external contribution which is exciting. For the next release we have planned making lemmur translation-friendly. ## Full changelog ### Added - Added inbox page, that can be accessed by tapping bell in the home tab - Added page with saved posts/comments. It can be accessed from the profile tab under the bookmark icon - Added ability to send private messages - Added modlog page. Can be visited in the context of an instance or community from the about tab - You can now create posts from the community page (by [wolf4ood]( ### Changed - Titles on some pages, have an appear effect when scrolling down - Long pressing comments now has a ripple effect - Nerd stuff now contains more nerd stuff - Communities that a user follows will no longer appear on a user's profile in most scenarios ### Fixed - Time of posts is now displayed properly. Unless you live in UTC zone, then you won't notice a difference - Fixed a bug where links would not work on Android 11

We are working on it right now, it will be soon on on the test appstore channel

You can now grab lemmur from [f-droid]( and the [Play store]( If you want to follow lemmur releases/news checkout the [repo]( and/or follow the [!]( community. You can always support the development on [Patreon]( or [BuyMeACoffee]( PS. We do not flavor our releases: github release tab, fdroid, and play store apks are built from the same source code. Feel free to download lemmur from any place you like.
