Hyperspace is a client for Mastodon and the fediverse written in React and TypeScript. It aims to provide a clean, simple, and fun interface for interacting with Mastodon instances. Currently, Hyperspace works on the web as a static site, desktop via Electron, and on mobile devices as a progressive web app.

    • It's odd to see a new client come out with support for only mastodon. Pleroma uses the same API, so it should work but most other clients just announced official support for Pleroma and eventually Misskey and PixelFed. I really hope the fediverse leaves behind the monoculture soon

      • Most Mastodon clients already support Pleroma, like Fedilab, Whalebird, Tusky and so on. The API is nearly identical, although there are some small differences apparently. I hope Misskey support becomes more widespread, as a platform it's really underrated right now.

          Right, that's what I said. Pleroma implemented the Mastodon API so Pleroma instances would work with masto clients, but the developers weren't explicitly testing against Pleroma. Most client developers recently added official, tested support for Pleroma. Mastalab even rebranded to Fedilab.

          I was expressing disappointment that this app doesn't even mention non-Mastodon software, so it likely hasn't been tested with them. That's part of what I meant when I mentioned leaving the monoculture behind. Apps shouldn't be developed and tested against only one software. This is an open ecosystem so we need to make sure there's equal support so that it isn't dominated by one software/person.

          EDIT: hmm, the blockquote didn't work. Is that a bug with the markdown parser Prismo uses or is there some other syntax?

          • Yes, I got that :-) But you're right that having decentralised servers (instances) is just one step towards preventing decentralisation: having platform diversity as well, is what really only makes the fediverse the fediverse.

            When I asked client developers about adding Misskey support, they mostly said that they'll look into it, but are afraid that the API is mostly in Japanese. They haven't got that excuse with Pleroma, so let's see how this develops further...

            Thinking about in now, an interafce like that client offers would suit Friendica very well too.

      • Another front-end without any customization or pinable tabs. Do people really just local/home feeds only?
        Also the blank header is completely pointless there - sure take away 20% of my screen space for a logout button lol. Looks pretty but it doesn't seem to be very well though out.

          I am ofcourse not including sites like prismo in this, as prismo may be built on ActivityPub, but it's not exactly a 'micro-blogging' or social network in traditional sense.

            Yeah, I was also thinking that's wasting a lot of screen-space, that's true.

          • Looks pretty clean. More familiar for many people because of the similarities to twitter. That will be a positive for many people.
