Resteemed Tab has been Developed!

in steemit •  2 years ago


I have developed and submitted the much desired Resteemed tab for user blogs.


Resteemed tab

This has been a much wanted feature even since the resteem function was introduced more than two months ago. In essence, resteemed posts clog up a user's blog and make it hard for others to see the user's work. When I visit someone's blog, I mainly want to see their work, resteemed is secondary.

Many posts have been written about this including:

Quoting from @ats-david's post:

“Re-Steeming” is a nightmare for many users. The Re-Steemed posts really need to be separated from user posts on their blog page. Create a new tab for it and send the Re-Steems there. Again – this is something that shouldn’t take long to code and implement. Why it hasn’t been done already is a complete mystery. This has been mentioned by many users since immediately after the function was implemented.

Well, for what it was worth, a while ago I did put the "Resteemed" label on the top of resteemed posts in the user's blog, similar to how it is in the feed. This is currently live on the site, and at least this has made it easier to spot which of the posts were the users and which were not. See the following code submission Show Resteemed on Blog #426.

I will have our team review it and hopefully they can merge it if the implementation is as elegant as the interface shown!

Good work.

Agreed! WTG!!! As someone newer to some of this blockchainy stuff, I wondered the same things about the feed clogging up as such, I am glad this is being done!!

Awesome bro! You rock!!!

·

Hehe.. thank you!

great work bitcoiner

·

thanks!

·

Haha, yum!

Nice, I think the Steemit community would appreciate more UI updates. Even though a lot happens behind the scenes as well. Good work.

·

There are definitely many other UI features to be desired. Hopefully, I will find the time to contribute more.

Great job! A much needed feature :) Can't wait to see it live on the site!!

·

Thanks! I hope so too!

That is awesome. I am sure it will be universally accepted. We have been asking for this for months! Great work!

·

Thank you! Yes, I've been hearing many want this for a long time, including myself!

Re-Steemed, how fitting. :p

·

Oh, indeed! :D

Yea, agreed nice work.

Thank you! How long did it take to write the code for that?

·

Half a day total at most spread out over the weekend. React is new to me and I've been learning. Also, the codebase is a bit cryptic and large too haha.

·

@ats-david, suggestions getting done! ;-)
I'm learning how steemit works also and hope could assist @timcliff and place my name on steemit code history at github.

Hey @celsogoya - that would be awesome if you want to help out!

I'd be happy to help you identify features that the community is looking for, which shouldn't be difficult to implement. I don't know if anyone is already working on it, but I know adding a "Resteemed Count" (similar to vote count and comment count) would be a really great addition, which shouldn't be too much work. It would probably be the best one to get started on (in my opinion) I also have a long list (with varying degrees of difficulty) if you are looking for more.

@bitcoiner is the best person to talk to if you are looking for a mentor to help you figure out how to actually make the changes and get them checked in to GitHub.

I'm exploring github to figure out how stuff works, there's a lot of code. I appreciate any kind of mentoring because i still not have a test platform.
I'm a developer and actually i work with Visual Studio and Azure, my telegram account is the same username. :-)

In Steemit.chat, there is a #dev channel that has a lot of people who can help. You can also msg @bitcoiner there. Feel free to message me too, but I probably wouldn't be much help for the really technical stuff ;)

Good work guys, steemit is getting better all the time :)

Great work. I do hope your code will be adopted as soon as possible.

Excellent! I am looking forward to see it officially embedded! :)

This is a great idea. I have a question because i'm still new here, how do you resteem a post

·

Thanks! To resteem, just click on the arrow icon on the line of icons and information.

Great work do you know if there is an estimate of when it will go live?

·

It's hard to say for sure. It has to go through review with the official dev team, then pushed to the live server. Hopefully we get this in days rather than weeks.

·
·

Thanks for the hard work, and Looking forward to seeing it go live.

·

Great Q. I wondered the same.

Agreed! WTG!!! As someone newer to some of this blockchainy stuff, I wondered the same things about the feed clogging up as such, I am glad this is being done!! I voted for your witness awhile ago! Keep up the good work - we minnows count on it lol. (:

I forgot to say of course -- I did RS this. LOL.

This is awesome, great work! I have been hoping for a feature like this ever since resteem was introduced. Having resteemed posts separated from my blog will definitely encourage me to resteem more often.

You, sir, have gained a new follower!

·

I think this view is basically shared by all in the community for quite some time!
Thanks!

I think if that happens the Resteem function will follow the path of the Promoted.

·

This is a good point. But the feed will still show resteems inline with posts from followed. This will just be inside a user's blog.

·
·

Oh. Ok then. To be honest i like the resteems in my feed. Gives me a better chance jump on a vote early and meet new authors.

I thought it wasnt going to our feed. So this good news

This is sweeeet upvoted.

·

Thanks!

This is a well-wanted feature. Thank you for developing it. I hope it gets implemented soon!

·

Thanks! I hope so too!

Great news! Thank you for the mention sir!

Great job. I purposely avoided the resteem feature until this type of feature came out. Very happy to hear about this!

·

Thanks! Yes, people been have saying they limited resteeming or didn't resteem at all because it would clutter up their blog. This changes that!
