Hive Keychain DHF 3 - Weeks 16-20

in #keychain4 months ago
Authored by @stoodkev


As promised in our proposal, here's a summary of our latest developments.

Keychain extension

We've added a reminder for the governance votes expiration. As of HF15, governance votes will expire after a year if you don't keep participating in governance activities in the meantime (witness / proxy / proposals). To help you keep an eye on this, we will show you a reminder a month before the expiration. You can then either ask Keychain to postpone the expiration automatically (your account will vote/unvote or unvote/vote the return proposal), or ignore the reminder and adjust your votes manually.

We've also fixed an error coming from unknown types of transactions from Hive Engine and resulting on empty lines on the token history.

On top of that, we are now integrating tests on the background side of the extension, thanks to @theghost1980's work.

To better understand our users journey, @cedricguillas is now working on integrating Google Analytics (not an easy task on an extension). We care a lot about your privacy so this feature will of course be anonymous and participation will be optional.

We will also add RC delegations soon.

Mobile App

A new version is coming soon (awaiting review). Major updates include :

  • Redesign of the browser navigation : it overall just works better and the hardware back button is linked to the browser back button
  • Fix crash on Hive Engine
  • Fix Hive Engine history
  • Small UI improvements

@theghost1980 is now starting to write tests on the mobile side.
Next update will add more Hive Engine features (operations and history items).

Redesign of the browser navigation : it overall just works better and the hardware back button is linked to the browser back button

This will be nice! I use the Keychain app browser a lot on my tablet and occasionally I'll hit the android back button on accident out of habit. Also sometimes when I'm browsing Peakd the back button in the browser won't work for some reason.

Another suggestion to consider for the mobile app is to make all of it able to rotate if the device is being held in the "landscape" position. The browser works fine that way, but other parts of the app like the wallet and pin unlock pages just display sideways and don't rotate.

Thanks for all your hard work!

Glad you like it!
Other screens don't rotate by design, there wouldn't be enough screen space to show the screens properly on phones, and at the moment, it would be too much work to redesign it for tablets only. Maybe later when we have a bigger team =)

Thank you for this development update.
the addition of the reminder for the governance votes expiration is another utility to add to the many utilities that Hive Keychain has!
