in HiveDevs8 months ago

Peak Projects (4).png

With all the ongoing BUZZ on Sting Chat, we continued to improve the platform and push lots of upgrades to make your user experience better. These updates are mainly focused on how we can improve the experience of the community when using the platform and a couple of fixes that are mostly reported by users.

Also we have word that another website is in testing phase for launching Sting on their website. We'll keep you informed when they launch. With that in mind we encourage you to keep telling sites to consider installing the widget... we will have developers closely working to make the experience pain free.

Come take a look at the list below!


Sting Chat on Mobile with Hive Keychain now Works

The @keychain team was able to make a small change to their mobile app in order to allow Sting to function on the various websites they're on.


Added Mentions button

Mentions page

For Sting Chat users to quickly see messages where they are mentioned in, we added a Mentions button as shown in the image above.

Upon clicking this, you can easily see which messages other Hive users have tagged you.

Added import themes button

For those who prefer using their own customized theme, we added an import theme button for you to do just that.

Steps to clone and edit a theme

Here is how you can do it:

  1. Go to the Themes section
  2. Clone a theme
  3. Click Edit on the edited clone, this will show the Theme Editor pop-up
  4. Click the top-right button in theme editor

Import theme button in theme editor pop-up

Upon clicking this button, you will see a pop-up wherein you can import the json of your desired theme.

Moved fonts settings to separate page and Add Sans fonts

Fonts page

Next, we also moved the Fonts settings to a separate page to make it easier to adjust for the users. We also added more Sans fonts (Lato and Roboto) so that users have more options to see which font is most suitable for them while using Sting chat.

These are just a few highlights of the exciting upgrades we've made to our chat messaging feature. For the full run through of updates, take a look at the list below.


- Add mention button
- Add import themes button

- Fix user font selection to persist across app refresh

Hive Power Up Day - July 1st 2023
Announcing the Travel Reimbursement Fund for HiveFest⁸

My previous @v4vapp proposal has expired. I have a new one which is running but unfunded right now. I'm still running @v4vapp and all my other services.

I've just updated and I'm getting ready for some exciting new features after the next hard fork.

Please consider asking your friends to vote for prop #265 or consider unvoting the return vote.

For understandable reasons in the current crypto climate it is harder to get funded by the DHF, I accept this so I'm asking a wider audience for help again. I'll also add that I power up Hive every day and usually power up larger amounts on 1st of the Month. I'm on Hive for ideological reasons much more than for only economic benefit.

Additionally you can also help with a vote for Brianoflondon's Witness using KeyChain or HiveSigner

If you have used I'd really like to hear your feedback, and if you haven't I'd be happy to hear why or whether there are other things you want it to do.
