Summary of my involvement to Communities that is now getting released to /

"We're beginning to roll out communities. Stay tuned for updates. " says the notification banner on 🎉🎊🥳

Congratulations and thank you @roadscape and his team at Steemit Inc. for the hard work during those last months. The Steemit frontend is now powered with a critical features allowing us Steemians to create communities for our content creators.

As a community developer, I contributed with small code changes some of which have a big impact on the project.

Communities on

Light relooking of

This is the first important change I added to the Condenser. I've previously redesigned the comment section of a blog post view to make it more readable. With this next relooking, I went relooking the comment section a bit further to add more contrast and make each comment block stand out and even more visible.

Better design for the comment section of a post

As you can see, I've introduced a different background color from the background of each comment blocks. That creates a bit more contrast for readability and separation. The post article above the comments has also been restyled to make it as wide as the comment for nicer view, however the effective width of the article was not changed as to not mess up with the layout of existing posts.

As you can see on the top screenshot, the feed list has also been redesigned to align with the new look of the comment section. Each post summary block in the feed list is now more compact, allowing display of more posts in the list. This has been worked on multiple times thanks to the feedbacks from @roadscape and @therealwolf.

Pull request:

Author dropdown

I revamped the author drop down to make it load asynchronously after page load, this allows the Condenser to fetch more data related to the author.

Revamped author dropdown

Pull request:

Multiple image upload and drag-and-drop like GitHub

Another nice feature I added is for the post editor. You can now upload multiple images at once and you should still be able to continue writing your post and the images will get inserted where they should be instead of right in the middle of what you are typing, just like in GitHub. This was requested here:

Drag and drop is now also supported.

Support @quochuy Witness.jpg
On Steem, Witnesses are playing the important role of providing a performant and safe network for all of us. You have the power to choose 30 trusty witnesses to package transactions and sign the blocks that will go in the Steem blockchain. Vote for me via SteemConnect to help me do more useful projects for the communities.


I thought communities was accomplished the last week from Justin Sun and his TRON team. Is it not true? 1qok7d.jpg


Thanks for all you do @quochuy!

My pleasure

Oh how I missed notifications - nice to know when someone comments back or tags you 🙂

Yep definitely important.
We should implement proper browser push notifications on the Condenser too.

absolutely fantastic update!

This has renewed my excitement in the future of the platform by 110%. communities are fantastic and make it so much easier to find and filter to the places of personal interest.
Notifications have long been a feature that we have needed and so happy to see them arrive.
I love the multi-image upload and drag and drop feature but yet to test them myself.
well done team!

Thank you :-D

Great Call with the comments ! It's totally better !!! and for the rest of the update I am still discovering, great works thanks a lot !
upvoted !

Except the UI (btw those paddings are not possible, it gives a bad feel), I really appreciate what you made! Keep up the good job man.

Thanks for the feedback. Some paddings were done a certain way due to other requirements but I’m sure things will get improved progressively now that Communities is out.

Very good achievement! Go ahead with those favorable initiatives. Thank you, @quochuy.
PS: I tried to vote you as a witness but something is wrong with SteemConnect that doesn't recognize my active key. I'll try another way.

Thanks @quochuy! :-)

Thanks for your help with the PRs

Great update and nice work! You back in Ausland yet? I was actually near your work today and thought about you straight away :)

Thanks dear. Yes, I'm now back to Oz. Working from home at the moment, will return to the office soon.

Great job @quochuy.

I wonder if “tag search” implementation is doable. It would be cool

Maybe, to be investigated
