Thanks for using Broadsword! I hope you enjoy it.
- Run with the current release version or newer of Firefox, Chrome, or Opera.
- Broadsword should update on its own, but if you want to be sure to reload things, log out and back in.
- The Firefox extension doesn't initialize until you open it. Each time you open Firefox, it won't start notifying you about mentions until you've clicked on Broadsword once.
Fancy Specific Functionality
- If you open a thread (click on the time stamp), it will notify you each time the thread updates, regardless of whether you are mentioned or not! Makes it easy to follow an active conversation while it is minimized.
- Alternately, clicking on the icon of two people (next to the time stamp) brings you to the permalink on @simon_w's TreeView client.
- @-mention links (like @33mhz) open an inline view of the user's profile, and include users' post count achievements and the time zone difference between you and them.
- By default, interactions (Stars, Reposts, Follows) update every 3 minutes.
- Clicking on a picture changes its size.
- Under the Options Menu, you can update your profile description and name, change preferences, and view some other App.net-related tools and sites.
- The anchor symbol appears on posts that are replies to other posts. Clicking on it will attempt to scroll you to the post it is replying to.
- With Broadsword in focus (and not a text area), pressing "1", "2", "3", and "4" change which stream you are viewing.
- If you have viewed a non-1,2,3,4 stream previously (a thread, channel, etc), "5" will reopen it.
- "F2" opens and closes a panel to write a new post.
- "F4" opens and closes the search/history/error panel.
- "SHIFT+ENTER" will send any post as a new threadless post.
- "p" brings up Broadsword's Preferences.
- "ESCAPE" will close temporary windows.
- Filtered Global view can use @matigo's NiceRank, which configurably attempts to exclude posts that are automated and/or disreputable. You may choose whether to only allow more conversational, present-on-App.net posts to be shown, or including "feed"-like posts, or not cleanse Global at all.
- The sword icon is by @anemicman.
- The Solarized themes were submitted by @shauncollins.
