My new contributions to the Hive Condenser

in HiveDevslast year

Updates to the Badges and Achievements

The recent addition of Peakd and Hivebuzz social and achievement badges stirred some controversy, some people loved it, some hated it and requested for its removal or at least for a way to opt-out.

I initially thought of refactoring the look and feel of the badges bar on the user profile header and add a new user preferences but after discussing with other members of the dev team we agreed on implementing @guiltyparties' suggestion:

  • rename "Communities" tab to "Social" as it was pretty empty.
  • move the badges from the header into the "Social" tab.

Merge request on GitLab:

Badges and Achievements in the Social tab

Bandcamp and embedded players

I think I forgot to mention in previous update that there is a pending merge request for embedded players for Bandcamp and

Bandcamp embedded player:
Bandcamp embedded player embedded player: embedded player

Merge request on GitLab:


  • Both features are still pending review, tests and deployment from the dev team.
  • As for now, it is decided to slow down on addition of new embedded players since we have covered main ones already and would like to focus on other more important features and bug fixes.

You have the power to choose 30 trusty witnesses to package transactions and sign the blocks that will go in the Hive blockchain. Vote for me via HiveSigner to support my work for the community.


Thanks for the update and the work you are doing. Going this route is a great solution and I find it much better than if it were optional (which I suggested before). Thanks also to @guiltyparties for bringing up this alternative implementation.

Small but significant changes. Thanks for the update and kudos to you and the dev team for the awesome work you are doing.
