@alynna part of the reason this is so contentious i think is what is the point of rich text if a bunch of instances cant see it unless they do a specific thing
and yet like, thats also what im focusing on here? i applied thib's patch and when i stop being a depresso playing too much ffxiv i plan on adding poasting ability as well and seeing about providing instructions for others
@anna wait theres already a patch for rich text? Link?
@alynna its the one in that PR everyone is fighting over lol.you can just like, apply that branch to your own
Since I am using glitchsoc, i may already have it, it seems. I wonder how to test it...
is this in bold?
@alynna yup! and yeah glitchsoc added it a bit ago. i dont want to run glitchsoc so its been on my to do to figure out how to patch it in to Regular
@kaniini @alynna i mean theres also like a thousand masto host instances that can only run stock mastodon so any feature that makes things weird for people not able or willign to run non-stock mastodon is contentious, and why id really like to see him allow showing the rich text so we can all make our own decisions on whether or not to allow posting with it
Except glitch does what Mastodon't.
So if too many features are restricted from being in Mastodon, glitchsoc seems like it would be a good drop-in replacement.
Though what I would rather see is a migration assistant to go from Mastodon to Pleroma, just to have that option. Though for the moment i'm satisfied with Glitch and given some of the stuff i've seen going down on the github there, makes me feel like I dodged a bullet by not going with stock Masto..
