What about loginning into existsing toxme.io account?

What do you mean by that? You can always re-register the same account at toxme from jTox.

Do you plan to make audio and video calls?

Almindor's picture

Eventually yes. It's on the roadmap just not sure how hard it's going to be. Main thing is adding the requirement libraries to the static build (unless they are part of Sailfish acceptable libs but I highly doubt that).

 

After that is a lot of fiddling to make sure the hw works ok with it.

Thank yuu for this update ! Looking forward to see file transfer and video/audio calls implemented.

I have also a name sugesstion, "Pufferfish" the most toxic fish on the planet, far more toxic than cyanide. ;)

I believe that's openBSD's maskot :)

I'll probably stick with jTox, it's short, memorable and contains "tox" so people find it easy.

Thanks for this update! I have a feature request: multiline! i.e. when you are writing a message longer than one line, the message must continue on the next line, but now it is on the same line... and it is more difficult to read in full.

Good point. If you think of anything else please make an issue on github. Helps me not forget and organize things.

I tested imports with qTox's profiles. It's possible Cyanide and uTox don't encrypt their profiles with password so they won't work with currenct jTox. I'll look into it and allow plain imports too in 1.0.1

Thanks ! This solved the import issue.

Same here, can't import, even if movinf file to the needed directory, the format seems to be incompatible.

It's good to see another client. However, I would also suggest to merge with cyanide.

So far I can not import tox account from utox or cyanide.

bhyoram's picture

perhaps it will make sence to merge with cyanide, another native tox client, with some aleready implemented features
