You need https://openrepos.net/content/mistermagister/tdlib to run this app. In case of install trouble, remove depecher's tdlib_json or install it by hand, forcing overwriting files.

 

A telegram client that's superfast and super smooth. We want to make it as close to official app as possible. Forget the days of using telegram desktop or laggy crashy apps. Welcome to the future.

Super cool to see all the progress! Been struggling with all the other TG options and finally there is a fresh take! A few things that would make my life easier (but not necessarily your life lol):

- Posting into channels I am an admin of - at the moment the input field is disabled

- Search in the chats list to match a part of the channel / group / user name. E.g. If the channel name is "Amiga Forever" I want to be able to find it by typing "Forever". Right now I can only find it by "Amiga"

- Forwarding a message by long pressing it - right now it's possible to Reply, Edit, Select etc. but not forward. I know the long tap menu is super long - maybe it can be a list of icons instead like in Nanofiles.

- Cover displaying the number of unread messages and the user name of the last sender

- Bigger photo / video previews - too often it's hard to guess what's inside the image without tapping into it

- Seeing the full user information by tapping on their avatar

"- Posting into channels I am an admin of - at the moment the input field is disabled"
Same issue as with deleting messages, incorrect own permissions, going to be fixed in next release (actually giving me headache right now)

"- Search in the chats list to match a part of the channel / group / user name."
search is super super basic its not even from telegram. Search will be added later

"Forwarding a message by long pressing it"
Yeah its long thats why u gotta select it first. But wait! I just got idea typing this, we got unused doubleclick gesture, we could use that for selecting!

"Cover displaying the number of unread messages and the user name of the last sender"
The first one is already done in next update (u can follow trello for upcomming changes). The latter one, hardly doable, not for now, and don't think anyone needs it really

"- Bigger photo / video previews - too often it's hard to guess what's inside the image without tapping into it"
Ye i know i've increased their size a bit in next release but will increase even more

"- Seeing the full user information by tapping on their avatar" that's another entire feature, maybe in 2 releases from now, hard to tell

Lots of cool features coming indeed!

Trello is also a really nice way to follow your work...

One short question about the "send" icon that you induced in last update as an alternative to click the "enter" button to send a message: could the option of having "send button" disable sending the message with the "enter" keystroke? Therefore for typing it allows to use the enter key for its original typo use to make more spaces in the text...

Also, just a suggestion, since you are using telegram you could hop on our telegram group (its in about page or here), and talk to me directly and see progress even more thoroughly!

Mister_Magister's picture

Man as per your words "Plan is to add E V E R Y T H I N G"… 

Bottom line is… its already in next release ;)

with send button you can edit muttiline

Hahaha wao! super cool! Yeah i get he point that there is going to be a moment when you'll have to rest and wait for the native android to add more feature since Yottagram would have it all ;) .

Next release is milestone for sure :) !

Mister_Magister's picture

Every release so far had super huge changelog. For now i'm focusing on covering functionality as much as i can. After functionality is there i can polish it, make it prettier, fix minor graphical bugs, again make things prettier, think about some design improvements. But that's not priority right now as those are good enough and more functionality is definitely more crucial than forcing numbers only keyboard in login wizard (and that's actually also included in next update)

yusssufff's picture

Yes it makes sense... Functionality is key... Polishing is paint on door lock ;).

Anyhow thanks for your dedication to this great project!

Mister_Magister's picture

Also you can check out my other apps/projects which are no less great!

yusssufff's picture

Hey! First thanks a lot for your volunteered hard work!!!

It would be really great if on the main "chats page" (where you see the list of all open chats) there could be an indication if the last message sent has been opened by the destinatory person or not! In the official Telegram Android app OR on Depecher's Sailfish app is translates in showing one or two check signs such as: √ or √√ on the main chat's page.

I guess feature requests better be posted on github...Sorry i dont have account there...

I also guess you have it all planned already since "Plan is to add E V E R Y T H I N G" ;).

So i bet its just about what will be the first priority to add;).

Greetings and thanks!

Mister_Magister's picture

Also added it to todo. If you click on trello (link in description) you can follow its progress!

Mister_Magister's picture

Yep i already thought about it like 3 times, but since you want it, and its super simple, i'll put it together in like 5 mins for next update. Next update is going to be big. Proper chat messages history. That will be huge milestone as it will allow many actions and features

yusssufff's picture

thats great to hear!

thanks a lot for your work!

Mister_Magister's picture

Just doin my best!

yusssufff's picture

and do you believe you could manage to get these "ticks" both in the main chat list and also inside each individual chat?

Mister_Magister's picture

what do you mean?

yusssufff's picture

i mean like having this √  or √√ signs both on the ''main'' chat pages (that shows all open chats, such as here shown : https://telegram.org/file/811140767/2/TogG9vkUvYo.119652/badee5d60730dfe6a2 ) and also after each individual message inside each chat conversation (such as here shows : https://telegram.org/file/811140986/3/cOsdERdWi-A.154455/3c1c59c24251238040 )... This is the way its done in native android or depecher...

Could i explain myself better?

Mister_Magister's picture

I'm way on top of the things, was jut waiting for my graphic, they'll come in next update

yusssufff's picture

Super cool:)

Thank you to take care of feedback!

yusssufff's picture

Nice update

oxygenh's picture

After the update, the old version remains.

Mister_Magister's picture

no… that's not true, try downloading rpm from website, repo seems to be broken

oxygenh's picture

Exactly. I downloaded the rpm and installed it manually.  The reception is weird: rpm getpackages output:
 
[root@Sailfish nemo]# pkcon get-packages|grep yotta
Installed    yottagram-0.1.2-1.armv7hl (installed)
Available    yottagram-0.1-1.armv7hl (openrepos-Mister_Magister)
Available    yottagram-0.1.1-1.armv7hl (openrepos-Mister_Magister)

But abou pages is 1.1 :( An there are no new functions(

Mister_Magister's picture

try uninstalling and reinstalling rpm file, im sure they're here as noone else had issue

oxygenh's picture

thats right. A find, that daemon still running after uninstalling app. A kill daemon and new install. It help.
thank you.
Are there any plans to implement grouping of the last used stickers?

Mister_Magister's picture

sure i'll add it sometime. as to question "will you add" don't ask them. Plan is to add E V E R Y T H I N G
