I built the first 100% private, on-device "For You" feed on the fediverse
  • Hi, Im glad you like Quiblr! It is a frontend. It currently supports Lemmy Instances. So you can use Quiblr and browse/join any other Lemmy instance. Basically, it is the equivalent of a Reddit client

    And I agree that the recommendation algorithm perhaps has a more ideal fit with other content. But I liked the idea of something new and novel by mixing Lemmy's Reddit-style with a Youtube/Instagram-style recommendation feed.

    Let me know if any other questions or feedback come up!

  • It does not. I haven't used matrix yet. What are matrix rooms used for?

  • How do you guys feel about Loops?
  • I was thinking about Loops earlier today. I'd love to implement Quiblr's For You recommendation algorithm for Loops and see how it performs. I haven't joined the beta though so not sure how baked it is yet

  • I built the first 100% private, on-device "For You" feed on the fediverse
  • Valid. I finished the functionality of the For You feed and wanted to share before wrapping up all the formatting styles for the posts. Should be fixed here in a few hours.

    Also, I'll see if there is a better way to dynamically load comments. Thanks for the feedback!

    Edit: Other post formats are now available on the For You feed

  • I built the first 100% private, on-device "For You" feed on the fediverse
  • I appreciate all the kind words! You are correct that it is a frontend with recommendation engine built in. And the speed likely comes from being a progressive web app.

    There are tradeoffs, but it definitely makes thinks "snappier" :)

  • I built the first 100% private, on-device "For You" feed on the fediverse
  • I pushed an update to Quiblr. I added the instance detail to the Communities page. Additionally, the vertical 3 dot ellipses on each post has an option called Post Detail >> I added the original post url here

    Let me know if you have any additional feedback!

  • That is an effect of the dynamic sizing (adjusting the style for different screen dimensions) + it may be because the items are in a flatlist. I will add a dynamic image size setting option tonight to allow users to show the full image ratio rather than a standardized image size.

    Edit: dynamic image size setting is now live

  • I use Kofi for donations (button in the top bar). I build and pay for everything myself so support is appreciated!

  • I built the first 100% private, on-device "For You" feed on the fediverse
  • I used lemmy.world as the default for non-technical users or for folks who can’t decide. Users can still select different instances. Maybe it could make sense to default sign ups to a list of popular instances

  • I appreciate it! I try to update regularly when I’ve got time

  • I built the first 100% private, on-device "For You" feed on the fediverse
  • The recommendation engine doesn’t require users to log in. You would still need to log in to vote, post, comment, etc

  • I built the first 100% private, on-device "For You" feed on the fediverse
  • Notes! I’ll aim to add it to the next release. Thanks

  • I built the first 100% private, on-device "For You" feed on the fediverse
  • I appreciate it! And there is a Feedback form in the sidebar

  • I built the first 100% private, on-device "For You" feed on the fediverse
  • I see what you mean. To clarify, Quiblr as a platform is also 100% private. It doesn't even use Google Analytics. The only data that I collect is anything submitted via the Feedback form + Umami for analytics .

  • I built the first 100% private, on-device "For You" feed on the fediverse
  • Thank you so much! And I just made a note on the voting arrow order. I like the idea of making that an option in settings

    And I can look into collapsing parent comments too. As you pointed out, I made it so just child comments collapse. The idea to collapse the parent comment never occurred to me lol

    I'll see if I can work both of these features into the next release.

  • I built the first 100% private, on-device "For You" feed on the fediverse
  • No. Posts are not downloaded and Quiblr is purely a frontend (you can choose which instance you want to use). The algorithm basically crafts the relevant API calls to populate the For You feed with content that matches your usage preferences. Those preferences and metadata are all stored on your device

  • I built the first 100% private, on-device "For You" feed on the fediverse
  • I appreciate the kind words. And yes, I included a mechanism to constantly refresh and clean up recommendations so that it doesn't use too much memory

  • I built the first 100% private, on-device "For You" feed on the fediverse
  • Quiblr is purely a frontend. It creates a standardized experience across Instances (including the feed personalization). Im not super familiar with Kbin. If it uses the same API as Lemmy then it should work.

    Long-term, I'd love to integrate more and more fediverse platforms into Quiblr

    Are you worried about microplastics?

    I've been more and more conscious about microplastics. I was not aware that the laundry and dishwasher pods are just plastic which then goes into the water system.

    What can be done to prevent microplastics?
