I've re-uploaded Clover to the Play Store again, see this link
This is a different package name (the old one was org.floens.chan) so it won't install over any previous installed versions, it's like a new app. F-Droid will keep the same old package name, no action required.
There are a *lot* of people still on v1 that they downloaded from the play store, these people have to download v2 manually. I can't update them because of the suspension.
This is going to be my v2 release post, that I would have made sooner if it wasn't for the suspension.
I've rewritten big parts of Clover in v2. I lost motivation to work on v1 because the quality of code wasn't good, especially in the UI code. I did decide to not just start from scratch because that is almost always a bad idea and that's why most "manager" classes are still in a bit of a bad state, but I've kept them because they do work even with the new UI components. I plan to refactor them later too.
My plan for the further development of Clover is as follows. I will probably take a small break from Clover to work on other projects. After that Clover will get a tabbed layout option, support for more sites, support for a quick go-to box and a full-screen reply layout. There are a lot of ideas on the todo list that I want to integrate.
What the fuck is a Play Store? Sounds like F-Droid for kids.
>I wrote a desktop app for 4chan in an afternoon out of boredom
What do you want? Some form of special medal?
I wrote a shitpost on 4chan this afternoon out of boredom, you can see me here tripfagging in a new thread to boast about it.
>My plan for the further development of Clover is as follows. I will probably take a small break from Clover to work on other projects.
at least fix the image rotation bug which makes clover not scaling them.
also save to microSD would be nice.
>I just copied the post changing some words
>I'm so clever
>I sure showed him
I had nothing better to do with my afternoon and I hadn't really messed around with the Vichan API, so I thought I'd write a quick and dirty method for displaying each boards firstt page.
/g/ is included on the default list when i installed it but it defaulted to /ck/. I think it picks randomly from a set of the blue boards (other than /a/, which is what got v1 of the app removed for NSFW).
It would be great to add whitelisting to boards, so you could e.g. be notified when a thread with a particular subject is created, instead of Ctrl+f every time you have the chance. Anyone know of any chan apps which can do this?
It'd be pretty painful to accomplish, you'd have to refresh the entire board every few seconds and search through it for the thread you wanted.
There's no stream to latch onto when it comes to Vichan, all the data is served up as is with JSON.
If it used JSOINP you might be able to accomplish that a lot easier.
The retards/trolls already coming in
I was asked to type in the captcha variant with the house numbers, as soon as I tapped the input form to enter said numbers, the whole post form kind of 'refreshed' and then disappeared, no errors were displayed.
I was about to suggest a feature that could be valuable, but I'm not entirely sure if it's good or not, I was thinking that maybe you could add a non-default option or a button to sort posts by reply count, it would come in handy to avoid skimming over threads with 200+ replies, obviously I'm not trying to turn this into reddit or anything similar, but usually, posts with high reply count are good contributions to the thread or controversial.
>I was asked to type in the captcha variant with the house numbers, as soon as I tapped the input form to enter said numbers, the whole post form kind of 'refreshed' and then disappeared, no errors were displayed.
This is really fucking weird. I'll keep an eye on it.
And the other thing. You can sort threads by reply count etc, but you want to sort posts also? Not really requested but I'll keep it in mind.
Thanks, that is very thoughtful of you, I will look at the issue more carefully and report back if I can find any other curiosity that could be helpful to pin down the bug. Yes, I was talking about sorting the posts within a thread based on reply count, I think it is a double edged sword because it could increase shitposting or turn this into some kind of reddit spinoff among a small part of the userbase because it changes the nature of how threads are displayed and information is perceived, but at the same time it is useful when you want to save time when looking at threads.
Thanks! I am very happy to see that you are still working on this. many people wouldn't have such perseverance after the Jews took down their app. You're making critical contributions to the restoration of the white race's former glory.
You can rewrite history all you want redditor normalfag, but this always was and always will be an anime site.
Hi, I'm using v2 right now alongside 1.2.11. I really dislike the material design, the changed (less convenient) controls, the lack of swipe left in the catalog to return to the previous thread, and the fact that every time I pin a thread from the catalog the left thread list keeps popping out at me. Thanks Floens
Floens what is this? See the last reply. It happens so often.
Enjoy your shekels, you fucking nigger.
>Looks like the top/bottom buttons are in the menu on the thread. So they exist still!
Yes but it was faster before, it was something i used frequently in long threads.
Posting in soon to be stickied thread
Breddy gud so far, doesn't feel clunky or lagging yet, gonna experiment some more.
MAKI IS MY WAIFU
the only time i still browse fourchan nowadays is on andtoot when i'm taking a shit. couple of years on /b/ and you get bored i guess. i liked v1 so i hope v2 is better. thanks anon.
Thanks for all your work on this, Clover makes my life notably less shitty.
Any chance we could get pinned searches? It would be cool to keep track of generals without having to manually type the thread name every time.
>Why cant 13 not just use their computer
>Why do you even bother if its /b/
>Why do you even bother since you are an adult and should know how to spot kids and just not replie to them
>tfw no _\/_ and -/\- bottoms
Alright guys how tf do I keep multiple threads open and "shuffle" between them? Opening a thread and dragging it to the left seems to close it
Thanks for all your hard work floens. I really appreciate it. I actually like the mobile app more than the desktop site.
Probably have to relearn it coming from version 1. But I just wanted to thank you for your time because so many shit posters are dick heads to you, probably apple fags.
why the fuck is anyone using this when Daschan exists?
First, how one removes boards from list? By long press I can only rearrange them. Secondly, how one adds nsfw boards? I guess I could read the faq but shit's supposed to intuitive.
Is it possible to switch to legacy CAPTCHA? 4chan supports it, and the "I'm not a robot" CAPTHA never works.
The catalog mode looks like shit, with all that space wasted
Compare it to pic
Not blocked in my area, but I'm sure it is for others (esp. on cellphone networks, where workarounds can be troublesome).
For me, I believe there is potential in using this app to view other content compatible with 4chan API (hosted elsewhere, obviously)
> all these salty wanna be app developers shutting over floens for making the product they with they had made and doing a better job than they ever could.
Anyways yeah I'd love to see the top and bottom buttons brought into 2.whatever I'm running here but overall I like it.
Thanks flow flow
So are you giving us an option to have less or more threads per row in the catalog view? Cause right now I can hardly read this shit
Same here i want 3 cols
>all those fucking anime avatars in the reviews
I seriously can't believe this.
hey retard you can add /a/ its just not there by default
what do you see at the bottom
of this menu?
I just found it actually. I wish it was like the old versions in the bottom right hand corner. I don't need that post button all the time. It was nice when it was up on the top bar. I do like how the captcha is text and not those pictures though.
Didn't read the thread so I don't know if this has been asked yet, but have you ever considered adding some options to customize the board list further? Categories amd/or separators would please my autism.
>catalog sortable by creation date
Thank you, based floens. This was everything I wanted in a new version.
The volume scroll could travel a bit farther though. Also, could the thumbnail cropping be less wiiiiiidescreeeeen?
I regret ever using Dashchan, it's way too comfy to switch from now but I want support Floens. Clover just feels like complete shit compared to it.
I got it from fdroid, am I the only one whose keyboard hides when you hit submit, before you enter the captcha? I have to hit back and then submit again before I can tap the text box to type it.
Moto G 2015.
Clover's not so much better with space either desu
At least look at the settings first.
>I hope /g/ isn't the default board, I want phone fags to leave
I never even thought of coming to /g/ but when ever I launch clover it defaults here and I always get interested in one of the posts and end up browsing the board and then hate my self for wasting reading STUPID NERD SHIT.
>These are the types of people Clover invites to shitpost on 4chan.
Yeah fuck you too, buddy. I'll shitpost on this armenian basket weaving website all day just for you.
Can you faggots please read the advanced options? Seriously, half the shit in this thread could be solved by checking there
>option to remove floating reply button
>option to keep top bar from hiding itself
>option to change captcha
This is the second time launching the application, and I've got some questions about features.
1. In v1 I could slide thread to the right, browse the catalog and bring the thread back from the right. In v2 I can slide the thread to the right, browse the catalog and then what? Can't bring the thread back from the right. Am I missing something?
2. Where's the "jump to bottom/top" button? Does material design dictate you gotta scroll through everything?
3. When I went to reply to your post, the drop down menu said "quote" and not "reply" and had a stupid moment. Design-wise, don't you think the text should reflect the one on the 4chan website?
4. Entering wrong captcha moves you back to the reply instead of the next captcha. Why?
5. Is there something different about pictures' loading?
6. Is there a way in the captcha implementation to determine it should favor text over numbers? Numbers are very difficult to "nigger". In the browser, if you submit some text to a number captcha you are more likely to get text captcha in the next one. Here, I'm not sure even that works.
The reply window being stuck to the top is pretty cool. gg.
How do you like the taste of all that dick?
>>52698518 this desu
Image loading is also fucked, the app freezes while trying to load a image instead of the good ole' loading circle.
I also miss the ability to look on the thread list whilst having one open, not having to close the current thread to look for another
The issues and suggestions that were given in this thread are noted.
The top/bottom button is clearly not the way to go, and I will make a better solution for it.
Also the reply box should go back to the captcha and not the input on a bad captcha, I will also fix that.
I said in the OP what I will do next.
Thank you for the feedback, and thanks to the guy who donated!
There's something weird with this version. I saw a thread with replies but all the quotes to OP were saying (you) and I wasn't OP, I put a reply with a random comment and it was the same, the (you) was there.
This new version is a literally botnet?
v2 is great. I just hope you can implement an image gallery view for threads. For instance, when I'm browsing an ass thread in /s/, I'm not interested in the discussion but just the pictures. You already sort of have this with the download album option. Just modify that to work like a gallery.
