Changelog: Bookmarks!

ben profile image Ben Halpern ・1 min read

This has been in high demand and it's now available.

You can now bookmark posts. If you see something you like, tap the bookmark icon and it will be sent to Your reading list.

We also modified the left-hand tag navigation on the home page. It now shows all the tags you follow first and you can scroll down to see more. This is a change that puts the content you are interested in closer to the top. It also includes a bit of a redesign.

We'll follow this up with some polish and additional features here and there once we get a feel for the new features in production . One follow-along feature will likely be to have posts from your reading list periodically cycle in to your main feed so you get caught up with stuff you meant to read in the past.

Happy coding ❤️

Oh, also removed the 🤔 and 🙌 as they were a bit redundant and/or confusing at the moment. But additional changes could be forthcoming in that realm.

Glad you guys kept the unicorn tho. That's a must.

Awesome! When on the desktop one could get away with Pocket or something like that, but when using the PWA on the phone, this is a must.

The link is on your home page sidebar. Perhaps elsewhere in the future. The feature needs some fresh air before w get it just right.

🤔 when I click the bookmark icon it's visually marked as clicked (blue background and black borders) but it takes a second to update the number, you may be updating the number after the server reply for the AJAX request I suppose, you may first update the number, then send the request and revert if there's an error.

Great addition! It could be nice to have a link in the user menu too, next to "Dashboard" and "Write a post". That way I could finish reading an article, and with only one click I could go to my reading list. Now I have to go to dashboard and then to the list.

I always thought this icon 🤔 meant "I'm not very convinced about the point you're making" :-D

Any input on the design decision for taking away the 🙌🏻 and 🤔 reactions?

Yeah, I just wrote a follow up comment. We have some plans to make the reactions have a bit more purpose. e.g. the bookmark "reaction" sending to your reading list, but perhaps a bit more whimsical in unicorn land.

Any plans on supporting the web share api? developers.google.com/web/updates/...

Would be easier to share/save links to whatever service you want.
