AndStatus can log into, post to, and read from a microblogpub site (that is, I can see what the people I follow have been doing as if I were checking my inbox/stream). The compatibility is not surprising considering that the AndStatus, Microblogpub, and I think now Friendica developers were working together on AP C2S, but I think last time I looked a couple months ago, they had fixed one blocker but didn't actually have it working yet.

...MBP is also pretty mobile-friendly out of the box, though, so not sure how much I'll really use either one.

IndiePass, last I checked, can log in and post to MBP as an Indieweb endpoint, but not read; which I think is to be expected because MBP doesn't have Microsub. It can also log into my alt account on a Pleroma server if I want something to read, of course.

in light of my sad discovery about the not-big-number-safe hash emoji implementation here i am thinking of ... doubling down on emoji identifiers for the 🕸... https://github.com/martymcguire/hash-emoji-without-borders/
#
[schmarty]
i'm thinking of going to a new 4-emoji format, where the first (emoji) character indicates the emoji-hashing-scheme version. that'll let me make changes going forward by bumping that instead of upping the number of emoji each time.
#
[schmarty]
next up, i think i'll expand the emoji space to include up to unicode 14, which was standardized in 2021 and wide support rolled out last year, so should be pretty well supported. looking forward to some new site having a :melting_face: and more.
#
[schmarty]
i think i need a more detailed plan for what to leave out of the emoji data, though. definitely country flags, but probably also religious symbols, drug and alcohol references, guns? i'm also not sure what i should include in terms of skin tone and family / relationship emoji.
#
[schmarty]
and after writing all that out i am back around to disliking the project of using emoji hash as IDs 😂
#
sknebel
[schmarty]: strip the skin tone modifiers on lookup, so all variants point to the same site?
#
sknebel
Also, maybe the "categories" on the lists like https://unicode.org/emoji/charts/full-emoji-list.html make it easier to remove groups you don't like in there
#
[schmarty]
sknebel++ letting folks customize the skin tone on various emoji sounds fun! i'm not sure i want to _build_ that customizer but i like the idea of issuing new emoji without skin tone and accepting modified versions by stripping the modifiers.

dang this is also an excellent resource to generate emoji datasets from, thank you!

[schmarty] if whatever you do turns “campegg” into ⛺ + 🥚, I’d be happy 😉

campegg: https://martymcgui.re/pay 😏 🤑

[campegg]
LOL… but also might steal the idea for that page
#
[schmarty]
what is payment?
#
Loqi
💳 payment in the context of the indieweb refers to a feature on an indie web site that provides a way for the visitor to that website to pay (credit card, currency, gift card, etc.) the person represented by that indie web site https://indieweb.org/payment
#
[schmarty]

#
[campegg]
One of those good artist/great artist things, I guess 🙂

<[schmarty]> "campegg: https://martymcgui.re/..." <- I like how the preview display makes it look like the method of payment is a "Venmo Paypal Square."
