Possible future fern feature: "hide seen toots". I'm finding that, sometimes, I have to page through screens upon screens of already-seen toots and it's annoying.

@enkiv2 could you tell me what fern is please? i think it's a cli mastodon client?

@emsenn @enkiv2
Yeah. It's a curses-based mastodon client I wrote, with a dual-pane setup. It's based on UI ideas about usenet clients encouraging users to read their whole feeds. github.com/enkiv2/misc/blob/ma


@enkiv2 @emsenn VERY cool definitely gonna give that a whirl. I often find the stock web UI to be way too busy for my liking. Also, pour one out for USENET :) Man I used to love that thing :)

@feoh @enkiv2 @emsenn
Please note that it hasn't been heavily tested on python3. Let me know if you run into any issues with it.

@enkiv2 @emsenn Will do! Consider making it its own repo so people can submit PRs and the like :)

@feoh @enkiv2 @emsenn
If a bunch of people are using it, I will. I feel weird having a repo with only one file in it though ;)

@enkiv2 it isn't one file, it's one file and the versioning information, if that helps. @feoh
