web client -they're mostly looking for #Fediverse web clients - Pinafore is a Fediverse web client, perhaps you can retool your client to support other Fediverse server types like #Pinafore does?

Maybe something like:

https://fe.SoapBox.Pub

That supports a wide range of Fediverse server platforms, and of course, mastobrand is included in that list.

I hope that helps!

Nolan Lawson zrezygnował z dalszego prowadzenia projektu #Pinafore i zamroził repo.

Nie będzie nowego maintainera i nowych wersji.

Tłumaczy powody na swoim blogu tutaj:

Jak ja go doskonale rozumiemm... I jego powody.

Prowadzenie takich projektów bez zewnętrznego wsparcia to droga przez mękę, użeranie z wiecznie niezadowolonymi osobami. Te zadowolone siedzą cicho, nie dając motywacji nawet dobrym słowem.
A miałem już w 1/3 zrobione tłumaczenie Pinafore na j. polski...

Happy day! @semaphore has been released, which is a fork of #Pinafore with special care to #Accessibility and works well, from what I can tell!

Was just searching #pinafore and this was prescient. It's good that Nolan forecast the situation. Just want to let you know since you contributed, and I understand the tech debt concerns he had, that I'm operating a fork of Pinafore to allow it to continue on in relation to contributor interest.

I'm operating the fork via the Collective Code Construction Contract which is pretty lightweight and clear as far as maintenance goes. You can find the fork and more about that at https://github.com/weex/pinafore


sad that we lost #pinafore support.
mastodon is now in state where, if you want to use it accessibly, use outdated software, or suffer.
it's sad, that we actually lost that many apps that were accessible, I know, metatext and pinafore stil work, but will not get new updates, which is shame.
now even #facebook and #twitter have better #accessibility


#Question: do apps like #Pinafore and #Tusky support the "local-only post" feature offered by forks like #Hometown and #GoToSocial?


@ondrosik I'm testing it right now and I seem to be unable to locate the text entry field after hitting the reply button, so I need to investigate. #Pinafore is even listed as a supported client app in the #Friendica FAQ


@Arkadiusz Świętnicki 🇨🇳 @Kat Moss #Pinafore is not #Electron based. It's single page web app best used in your browser. This one is really clever, simple and accessible. It's not bloatware either.


Doing a test toot on #Pinafore using my Mac on the Safari browser. Pretty cool so far. I'm liking how #accessible everything is.
Question for those who use it... any way of viewing keyboard shortcuts for this sight? Also, is there a way to quickly move to the field where you compose a toot?

Thanks so much.


in #pinafore, is there a way to #follow hash tags within the application, or do I need to to to my local instance and follow them there?


Thanks for your gushing though. Pushed me finally to try #Pinafore out. Real impressing.


I know I've been gushing about #Pinafore lately, but seriously, I can't get over how snappy this thing is. It loads super fast, moving between toots and timelines is super fast with a screen reader. And the preservation of focus when going back and forward is just an absolute delight. It's like all the amazing potential of the web is actually manifested in reality instead of the typical suboptimal web experience that leads people to say that native apps are always better.


It's very cool that I can immediately use changes that get merged into #Pinafore by using dev.pinafore.social. Right now, I'm enjoying my changes to auto focus the text box in the Compose dialog and to improve arrow key navigation when you focus a control inside a toot. Thanks to Nolan for merging them so quickly!


Speaking of #Pinafore, based on a blog post from Nolan Lawson, it looks like it might not be maintained too much into the future. That's sad, but I totally respect that. I just contributed some a11y pull requests, but I'm now wondering whether I need to focus on the official UI instead. Hmm. https://nolanlawson.com/2022/11/22/thoughts-on-mastodon/


If I understand this correctly, following hashtags puts them in your timeline. I assume that's handled at the API level? If so, even though #Pinafore doesn't support following them, you should be able to follow them via the official Mastodon web UI and have that show up in Pinafore. I guess I'll find out soon enough.


Just filed a #Pinafore issue to request removal of the "Loading more" alert, as I find it intrusive/distracting/jarring as a screen reader user. I'd be curious to get thoughts from other screen reader users as to what they think of this alert, as strictly speaking, it is probably "correct a11y".


The latest episode of my #Podcast, @MosenAtLarge, has nearly an hour discussing how #Blind people like me use Mastodon and how to get started. I discuss some MastoDos and MastoDon'ts in general and focus on #accessibility on several platforms including the web interface, #Pinafore, and #Metatext. It's in any podcast app. The #audio is at https://mosenatlarge.pinecast.co/episode/bd3f4f1e/mastering-mastodon-how-do-you-get-started-with-ham-radio-and-a-fix-for-the-eset-issues-plaguing-screen-reader-users. The #transcript is at https://mosen.org/malp0206transcript/
Hope blind people find it helpful and sighted people find it interesting.


@Andre Polykanine Yes #pinafore is a webapp. It has great keyboard navigation capabilities and is adaptive to various screen sizes. People also like to use it on mobile.


Alright, going to be using #TweseCake while the situation with #Pinafore remains unresolved. At least it updates.


Thinking of migrating this account to @modulux@node.isonomia.net which is a #GoToSocial instance. Not sure if that will sort out my #Pinafore woes, but I may as well try it.


Any clue why #Pinafore on #Firefox 105.0.1 can't play the video on this toot? https://mas.to/@yogthos/109113307468828397
