On the future we will launch some pieces as plugins.
Definitely looking forward to this, I'm sure a few people around here wouldn't mind either! 😉
So as u know the NodeBB Android app is ment for Viewing community.NodeBB.org but I have tried Clicking other links in the app and they work this is interesting....
Screenshot token in NodeBB Android app on another Forum:
It's NodeBB Webview app
You can alter it to put another forum on, and force webview to send external links to the browser so that they don't open in-app. I keep meaning to try the app, had a go at doing my own a few months ago but got frustrated with it.
@Danny-McWilliams because there seems to be more interest in the app, I decided to return.
Compiling and modifying the app is extremely easy with the latest version as I gave the code a revamp and added more comments to it. Just take another look at the README.
P.S.: As of now I have no plans to release a new version replacing Parse with OneSignal, as I have mentioned earlier.
@AOKP - you've done a fair bit of work on apps before (and I'm not quite educated on NodeBB's inner workings), so a theoretical question.
Would it be feasible to load some of a forum's more bandwidth intensive features (scripts, themes, graphics and so on) from the app itself rather than from the server it accesses?
I know from a php-based forum (vanilla) I tried a webview app on a couple of years back it was a case of pointing the theme to local folders and including style sheets from plugins, but while it was a good idea in theory you'd still have to update the app with any possible plugin info as they were updated by authors and so on.
That's why my ideas fell flat, but the theme I used then was quite bulky in size, so even taking a couple of megabytes off the first load was going to speed things up.
It didn't have an API to just build an app on, so it was a halfway house type idea.
Just asking your (and others) opinion on that for this with regards to NodeBB
Yeah it can load other links than?
@AOKP I haven't and also on other pages it sometimes lags.
@Jared14406 thats what happens on a slow connection. Also consider that the NodeBB app on the Play Store is not built upon the recent code.
