Mi primera experiencia en #movim, he escuchado sobre esta plataforma en #mastodon , me decidí a empezar un blog por acá para ayudar a todos aquellos que deseen primero leerme y segundo aprender un idioma extranjero, imparto español a angloparlantes e inglés a hispanohablantes, el objetivo es brindar consejos y como no hablar de cada publicación que hago a través de los canales por los cuales imparto mis cursos gratuitos para todo aquel que desee superarse y por que no disfrutar aprendiendo.

My first experience in #movim, I have heard about this platform reading some posts in #mastodon , I decided to start a blog to help all those who want to learn a foreign language , I teach Spanish to English speakers and English to Spanish speakers, the objective of this blog is to provide advice and talk about each post I upload through the channels in which I teach for free for everyone who want to improve themselves and enjoy learning.

    We are looking for some help for the Movim Android application

    Timothée Jaussoin · pubsub.movim.eu / Movim · Monday, 31 May, 2021 - 20:17 edit · 2 minutes

Hi,

I am writing this little post today to ask for (a bit) of help on the official Movim #Android application that is currently available there.

I am maintaining #Movim for more than 10 years now, mostly without asking for any help from the hundreds of daily users that we have now (on the servers we're aware of, at least). I am also maintaining and updating the infrastructure hosting the website, the official pod and the #XMPP server and related services.

However Movim is a little more than that, there is also an Android app, and a desktop app (currently abandoned).

I am maintaining the Android app with the really thin knowledge that I have on this platform. Most of the code of the application is basically copy/pasted from StackOverflow and a bit hacky. Fixing and developing this app is always really time consuming as the environment, and the way of dealing with it, is really different than the knowledge that I have on the web development side.

So basically today I'm asking from some help for the official Movim Android application. If you have a little bit of experience in Android development (or if you want to learn !) and if you're willing to help me to improve the application do not hesitate to contact me through our official chatroom, directly on Github or as a comment of this post.

The app is quite simple. It is basically a WebView that shows one of the configured pods. And… that's mostly it.

What would be really helpful would be to have (non exhaustive list):

  • Another pair of eye to check and maybe refactor the few classes that are contained in the application
  • Create two flavors of the app, one "Play Store ready" and one "free of Google Play" integration (the current app cannot be published on F-Droid because there is some strong dependencies there)
  • Fix the mic/camera support and authorizations
  • See if the current notification system can be improved
  • Send an event to Movim when the app is "put in background" in a chat conversation to ensure that the notifications are re-enabled in this specific case
  • And any other nice feature that you would like to see integrated

There is no pressure or deadline, any pull requests that could help improving or fixing things in the application would be really appreciated.

I am currently dealing with Google to re-enable the application on the Play Store as well, I will keep you updated about that.

Regards,

edhelas

    First of all: Hats off for the amazing accomplishment. I just came across movim today and I'm pretty impressed.

    How can I learn more about the codebase? What technologies did you chose? I can see that the android app is almost identical to the web, so I assume that the web version is embedded into the android app.

    Do you have the code/issues on github?

  • 24 August Kefah Issa

    My bad! just noticed the github link on your post https://github.com/movim/movim_android
    Will look into it and come back. Thanks!

    I guess it's time for a #movim noob question. What's the expected (proper) way to follow somone's public posts? Do I add them as a contact?

    JSXC gets funding for group calls!

JSXC gets funding for group calls!

That sounds cool! #Jabber web browser client #JSXC gets funding by German governments #prototypefund to implement audio/video group calls within the next six months. One-to-one calls between #Conversations, #Movim and JSXC already work since some time, although not without flaws.

Note, that #Dino gets funding to implement one-to-one audio/video calls right now, compatible with Conversations and JSXC. The future for XMPP A/V calling looks bright!

    And..... A very merry unbirthday to you!!

    I've got a similar take...

    #gnu - A collection of UNIX-like tools (Gnu's Not UNIX)
    #Linux - a UNIX like multi-user, multi-processing kernel
    #Debian GNU/Linux - a Linux distribution (2nd oldest)
    #mutt - MUA
    #Gajim - a Jabber client
    #Movim - I'm still trying to figure this out... Gimme a little time man! :)
    #profanity - something I use to offend the sensibility of others for my own amusement :P
    #gpg - fricken' rocks! Umm... oh yeah, FOSS implementation of OpenPGP
    #tmux - Orange is the new.... no, wait! tmux is the new screen! Byobu is the pretender, and merely a skin for tmux
    #ejabberd - a spade's a spade, it's a **Jabber** server :P
    #jitsi - Secure, FOSS based video conferencing
    #Nextcloud Talk - Secure, FOSS based video conferencing
    #Big_Blue_Button - Secure, FOSS based video conferencing
    #SchildeChat - nicely skinned Matrix client, chat/voice/video communications
    #i3wm - aside from Twin, second best WM next to ALT+F2|F3|F4.... https://devo.linboard.org/tallship/twin
    #notmuch - really? I'mma have to give that a go looksee. thanks for that!
    #FSF - um.... I love RMS the cult of personality, the icon, but the dude himself, I just no longer abides. He's really gotta give up the reigns and become the elder statesman. Serio bro.

    You forgot sum....

    #bitwarden_rs - rust and MariaDB based alternative to .kdbx with all the mACR0sf0t shit ripped out of it.
    #mcabber (this one's just for you) - a CLI Jabber client (WTF is Loudmouth?) - https://mcabber.com (but alas, no OMEMO yet

  • 24 April, 2021 tallship

    Got it :) I'll respond from tallship@Pleroma.Cloud but in a nutshell, I'm still trying to get on board with the modern impplementations of Jabber. I appreciate the invite to 404.city, and I'll certainly recommend it to others, but for my longstanding, existing account for about twenty years with jabber.org, how do I fit in?

    Thanks, and kindest regards,

    - tallship

    Please can you put Movim back so html tables can be written in our posts the old way?

    Sadly, Movim have now changed the ability to write in html so your tables end up garbled. What a terrible shame. I wish Movim had just left it as it was before. It was fine as html! Nowadays it forces your markup to be their Movim markdown which is simply nowhere as neatly laid out as html with tables. Also, people have long understood html.

    I feel gutted about this. I'm not a fan of markdown being mandatory in place of html. Please can you put Movim back so html can be written the old way? I used to show people how cool movim was for that. It used to be so cool.
