My biggest gripe with *lemmy is the community search only brings up communities that have already been cached by the instance you're on

At first I would search for communities and be shocked that there's so many that don't exist until I realized I have to manually go on my browser and type myserverurl/c/communityIFoundSomewhereElse@ItsInstance if im the first one from my instance to want to sub to that community

Is there a site that can search all communities that this app can communicate to, then force my instance to cache from a search result?

Would make this app really stand out

Yup but a feature built into the app to search lemmyverse and be able to pull in missing communities to your instance would make this the best lemmy app by patching a huge hole in the fediverse

I'd like some sort of remote search feature in Lemmy. Maybe it'd be at the client level, but something that could search either lemmyverse or maybe a list of servers you know about.

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.
