Or visit http://www.gnu.org/licenses/ =============================================================================== Dianara is a Pump.io application for the desktop. With it, you can access your Pump.io account without using a web browser. If you only got the source code, see the INSTALL file for instructions on how to build it. Dianara looks best under Plasma Desktop, preferably using a very complete iconset, like the Oxygen icons, but these are not requirements, just a recommendation. You can make the program look nicer in other environments by using 'qtconfig' or 'qtconfig-qt4', and setting a visual theme to your liking. Press F1 (or click on the Help menu) from Dianara's main window to check out the basic help. What it does =============================================================================== - Posting text (with some HTML formatting), to Followers, Public, custom person lists created by you, or specific people, in any combination. - Uploading pictures, audio, video and general files. - Showing different timelines, with configurable number of posts per page, moving forward and backward in pages, or jumping to any page directly. - Liking, commenting, sharing, editing and deleting posts. - Liking, editing and deleting comments. - Contact listing, following and unfollowing, either by entering their webfinger address or through buttons in the lists and in the avatar menus. - Editing your profile, changing your avatar, setting your e-mail address. - Watch the 'minor feeds' of activities, "Meanwhile", "Mentions" and "Actions", and opening related posts and following people from there. - Filtering or highlighting posts, according to a set of configurable rules. - Popup notifications when there are new posts, or new "Meanwhile" activities. - And more! Some usage tips =============================================================================== - Press F1 in the program to read the general help. - You can set "public posting" as the default in the Configuration window. - You can click on the avatar of a post's author to get some options. This also works in the comments, and in the Meanwhile feed. - There are tooltips everywhere, so if you hover over a button or a text field with your mouse, you'll probably see some extra information. This is specially useful in the "Meanwhile" column. - When publishing a note or posting a comment, you can send using the keyboard, by pressing Control+Enter. - You can use Control+Up/Down/PgUp/PgDown/Home/End to scroll the timeline. Use Control+Left/Right to go forward and backwards in the timeline pages. Press Control+G to jump to any page. Control+1/2/3 alternate between the minor feeds. - If a post is of "image" type, you can click on the image to see it full size. - You can hide/show the side panel by pressing F9. Many items in the "Meanwhile" column have a "+" button to open the referenced post. - Adding titles to your posts will make the "Meanwhile" feed and the e-mail notifications a lot more useful! You can have automatic titles set from attachments if you enable that option in the program configuration, in the Composer category. - Resizing the window to half the screen width usually looks better, even though you can use it maximized, or in full screen mode, of course. - You can change the main window's icon and the icon used in system notifications by placing a 64x64 PNG image called dianara.png into /usr/share/icons/hicolor/64x64/apps/ - You can temporarily stop (and restart) the auto-updating of timelines by clicking on the "state" icon in the status bar, or by using the Session > Auto-update Timelines option. - If you connect to the Internet through a proxy, you can set it up in the program settings. - If your desktop environment is Plasma 5, but older than 5.5.0, and Dianara is built with Qt 4, you will need the SNI Qt plugin in order for the system tray icon to appear. - Dianara offers a D-Bus interface that allows some control from other applications. The interface is at org.nongnu.dianara, and you can access it with tools such as qdbus or dbus-send. It offers methods like 'toggle' and 'post'. See the BUGS and TODO files for a list of known issues. If you find a bug not listed there, you can report it at the issue tracker: https://gitlab.com/dianara/dianara-dev/issues Command line parameters =============================================================================== - You can use the --config (or -c) command line parameter to specify that a different configuration file be used. For example, if you run "dianara --config myotheraccount", the config file in use will be "Dianara_myotheraccount.conf" instead of the usual "Dianara.conf". This way, you can switch between different accounts easily. You can even run two instances of Dianara at the same time. You can use any name you wish to identify the configuration, but it must be one word, no spaces. - Use the --debug (or -d) command line parameter to have detailed debugging information on what the program is doing. - If your server does not support HTTPS, you can use the --nohttps parameter. - If you need to connect to a server with a invalid SSL configuration, such as a self-signed certificate or an expired certificate, you can use the --ignoresslerrors parameter. This is not recommended. Languages =============================================================================== Dianara is available in English, Catalan, Spanish, Italian, German, Hebrew and Galician. There is a partial polish translation. If you're interested in translating it to your language, check out the TRANSLATING file, and let me know. It's quite easy to do and it would be much appreciated! =============================================================================== Visit https://jancoding.wordpress.com/dianara for more information.
