Jerboa is a native-android client for Lemmy, built using the native android framework, Jetpack Compose.

Warning: You can submit issues, but between Lemmy and lemmy-ui, I probably won't have too much time to work on them. Learn jetpack compose like I did if you want to help make this app better.

App crashing (
submitted 2 days ago* (last edited 2 days ago) by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

I've noticed with the last 2-3 versions of the app (currently 0.0.69, nice); the app crashes 2/3rds of the time when returning to it from being in the background.

Open the app, switch to another app, switch back a couple min later and it closes then reopens as if you'd just started it for the first time today (losing whatever post you had open).

Curious if others are experiencing this?

I done goofed up. I hit the 'block user' option instead of the 'go to user' option (need glasses) and I can't now find an option to unblock them. Is there one?


Number of up, number of down, and total score next to the heart, that's the perfect way to display that, well done.


I thought something was causing people to double post more recently, but after testing voting on some examples, I'm pretty sure posts are getting duplicated by the app.


Since recently (2-7 days, dunno) my Jerboa crashes when I hit those bars in the corner that let you "sort by...".

Honestly I have no clue how to report such a thing, sorry if I'm messing it up rn. Shoutouts to everyone making this app work!

Since the last release, I find that gifs won't play in Jerboa anymore. For example, this comment just appears as a static image for me, even when I click on it. Do you see the same behavior?

Edit: solved by user merde alors:

did you enable "auto play GIFs" in settings>look&feel ?

Then close and reopen the app and that should fix it.


Fixes a minor bug with showing scores for legacy servers.


Text rearranges so its kerning appears slightly off when scrolling past the bottom of the page.

I find it more noticeable looking at the video than in this gif, but it's still not a big deal.


I had ticked the Hide Votes box since I started using Jerboa but after I opened the app today posts show votes as tiny text above the post (pretty sure it used to be bigger and next to the upvote button) And I cant find a setting to hide votes anywhere

Additional info, I checked via the web in the instance doesn't appear to have any problems showing the upvote down vote counts, it is just in the main screen on jeroba. If I click a post, I can see the current score in the upper right.


I'm having trouble seeing the points and I noticed that they're a dull gray and I believe tinier than they used to be.

Has anyone else having trouble reading the points in the smaller new font or is it update panic mode and I'm not acclimatized yet?


When I click links in lemmy comments that explicitly include http in the url, the resulting page is always https. To me, the preferred behavior would be to default to https if no protocol is specified, but to respect the user's preference if given.

Most of the time, there is no downside to changing to https, but some sites will result in an error if they don't properly support https (I've encountered this when incorrectly typing a url before, but as it was not recent I don't recall the details), and in rare cases the same domain name may serve different content on http vs https, making the ability to specify when linking desirable.

For example, is an archive of fan-edited comics, while is some kind of crypto site. While obviously that's dodgy on the site end, it's also strange to be completely unable to link the former without telling people to manually remove the s.

Is this redirecting happening on the app level, or the instance level, or something else? It's not unique to me, as I was first alerted to it by replies that were confused at my links not going where I said they went.

Edit: to be clear, my question is whether Jerboa changes all http links to https links and if so why. The two responses so far do not address this question. If you wish to instead focus on whether the links I provided as an example work the way I claimed, then at least visit them first (using a browser for the http, as jerboa may change the url). If you wish to explain to me what a protocol is, first note that I already referred to the concept by name in my original post. However, my question is what is causing http links to be opened as https links.

Edit 2: when this post was about 6 hours old, xkcdsw fixed its weird configuration (I talked with two9a about it over mastodon). So that example no longer applies, but if interested there are comments below confirming that it wasn't just me.


With most links it goes to the browser version which plays within Jerboa, but with YouTube video links it always takes me away to the YouTube app. Can it not do that please? Thanks


When you click on an image and double tap to zoom, it zooms to the microscopic level or is it just me?


I'm otherwise liking most of the fixes and updates, but it is rather annoying to not be able to just glance up and see the time and current battery level.

18 This post for example has so many posts and comments linked in it for other Lemmy comments and posts and jerboa show "couldn't find comment or post or user" or it just simply goes to homescree. . This is a regular behavior and I'd appreciate if the devs solved it once and for all if they got time cheers. In fact I just realized the linked post too don't work well that is a good example and proves my point I suppose .


I have typed a longer comment before and then accidentally pressed the "back" button on my smartphone before I posted it. The comment was sadly lost and the time I invested was wasted.

I haven't seen an option, which I could enable, such that Jerboa would show me a prompt whether I really want to go back, if I haven't posted the comment yet.

Did I miss it? If not, feel invited to see this as a feature request. (:

I just tried the search button, got no result. Turns out the search button only searches community names not comments or posts ?!?!??


I wasn't able to find one by poking around but may have missed it. Tx.


cross-posted from:

We're adding the ability to customize this in the upcoming release, but I'm wondering what people think would be a good default.

The 4 pieces of showable/hideable info are: Upvotes, Downvotes, Score, and Upvote %.

In Jerboa, I had a temporary default (until the next lemmy release), of Score + Upvote %, but people seem to dislike this a lot.

I'll check back on this in a week to see the result.
