New in Labs:

This reminds me of blot’s essay theme. I imagine others would love this too as a theme, @matt.

I like this tiny version… fast and to the point.

Not sure if it is related, but since I have activated the tiny theme, some of the embeds, for example the youtube embeds, dont work anymore. For example visible here.

It looks like it might have been a coincidence with some other (unknown) issue, maybe something routing related with my Internet provider.

This is really awesome & cute! Thanks :slight_smile:

Hi, honestly I was writing a note on Pleroma to say how @matt was wholesome and how happy I was to have a pro account here, because I was going to ask for support for the Gopher and Gemini protocols, so it seems relevant to this topic. I’ve been on a 500 MB/month data cap between 2012 and 2014 and it still has consequences on my mental health. I think supporting these protocols could be enough to spare a significant number of users from checking their remaining data plan before being cut from the world for the rest of the month.

A suggestion to convert Markdown’s inline links to Gemini’s block style wouldn’t be more complicated than adding them as footnotes and duplicating the styling, starting with an uppercase letter. So instead of getting:

“Oh, by the way, I’ve posted <a href="" pictures from my last trip to Hamburg</a>

we’d get:

“Oh, by the way, I’ve posted pictures from my last trip to Hamburg [1]
=> [1] Pictures from my last trip to Hamburg

But this is just a suggestion and I don’t know how much complexity it would add to the WriteFreely software.

Thanks so much for everything, for the software, the platform, the communication… :slight_smile:


I like this. Nice and sparse. Keep going, there’s more to cut! Imagine a world without Javascript and CSS entirely.

You might enjoy the Gemini project as well:

I love the minimalist nature of It would be amazing if someone could create a theme to reflect a minimalist blog that looked something like this: Blog | ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ Herman's blog

Any thoughts?


Hey @jehan, there are some out there! For example: Riley’s theme.

Just updated this a bit today with a new directory of all public writers, similar to the page you’ll find on Read

I’m currently using Riley’s theme but I will really like to be able to use the Tiny Theme on my custom domain.

I really like its essentiality.

Just wanted to say that I really like the look and feel of! I hope it can become a usable theme soon.
