"Coracle is a web client for the Nostr protocol focused on pushing the boundaries of what's unique about nostr, including relay selection and management, web-of-trust based moderation, content recommendations, and privacy protection."

Coracle v0.3.0: Faster Feeds, Better Navigation, NIP-89 App Store
  • "After just over a month of no updates, Coracle 0.3.0 is now available!"
  • "To give you an idea of why it took so long, here's the diff summary: > 166 files changed, 6718 insertions(+), 5118 deletions(-)," wrote Hodlbod.

What's new

  • "The entire fetching layer has once again been rewritten, resulting in faster and more complete data everywhere, particularly feeds. I hope to open source around 3k lines of this goodness after some further refinement."
  • "Navigation has also had a refresh, thanks to @tanel  et al's feedback in a nest last week. You can now see your profile in the header, and search/scan are available right there without having to visit a new page."
  • "I also managed to finally re-build Coracle's app store around NIP-89, including recommendations from your social graph."
  • "Note publishing also gives you more information about which relays accepted the note, with a retry button if publishing fails."
  • NIP 05 "verification" has been removed, instead showing follow status."
  • "Chat and DMs have had some love as well, including better new message notifications, and image uploads. You can also add more than one image to regular notes as well."
  • "One of my favorite new features is the optional "thread" view which you can open from a deep reply. This will trace the thread from that note back to the root and show all ancestors without nesting."
