i'm slowly working my way through the backlog of ktistec issues. i just pushed small changes that:

  • render posts written in markdown as html (no support for editing markdown yet)
  • allow users to manually fetch posts missing from threads (following threads is coming soon)
  • allow users to navigate to the post on the original server

following threads—and later tags—is going to be a huge benefit to single user ktistec instances. large instances with many users sit on top of a huge pile of content (both local and federated) and that creates an environment that sometimes feels more complete. users of ktistec will still have to intentionally follow a thread or follow a tag, but ktistec will do the work of pulling in the relevant content in the background and making it available.
