With Auralquiz 0.8 out the door, I’ve now turned my attention back to Dianara, my Diaspora app, for a while.
There’s a lot more API available now, so Dianara can fetch the first page (15 posts) of your public timeline, and display it.
A picture is worth more than a thousand words, they say:
Colors are just my system configuration 🙂
There is some basic Markdown rendering (bold, italic, and headers), and basic information about the post: Author, creation time, number of likes, number of comments, and, if it’s a reshare, the name of the original post’s author.
There is no OAuth authentication yet, so it is not possible to see your stream, aspects, contacts… well, anything not public.
In the Account dialog, the “access token” field can be filled with anything, it’s not used at this time. But hopefully soon!

I’ve started developing a new program.
This time it’s a Diaspora client, an application for GNU/linux that will allow users to manage their Diaspora accounts without the need to use a web browser.
September 2013 update: Dianara has been turned into a client for the pump.io social network, a powerful system that can be considered an evolution of StatusNet, which includes identi.ca and many other servers. Read more about current Dianara status here: https://jancoding.wordpress.com/dianara/
At the moment, it’s basically an empty shell. The only thing you can do, is enter your Diaspora ID (username@podname) and password, and see how your avatar and full name are fetched from your account information.
Diaspora‘s API is not ready to use yet, so there’s not much that can be done at the moment. Meanwhile, I’ll keep improving the interface, and the little network control there is now.
The code is, as usual, in Gitorious, at http://gitorious.org/dianara
It is, like my other projects, based on Qt, and as an aditional dependency, QJSON. It also supports FreeDesktop.org notifications, so you get nice notifications in KDE Plasma Desktop, Gnome, XFCE and other environments which support that specification.
