As an example, this looks terrible to me. They haven’t updated it all to account for what we’ve learnt about UX / human psychology in the last twenty years…
I find it works OK on Android in Firefox, Opera and Yandex browsers
How much RAM does the G5 have? I’m wondering if it’s RAM heavy.
It’s functional…It’s not the best looking but neither is Discourse to be honest. I do agree it’s looking it’s age.
It works ok for me, but if I scroll back at all, I sometimes wait upwards of 20 seconds for the screen to respond to me moving my finger. And I sometimes can type a whole post before anything I’ve typed appears in the text box.
3GB of RAM. You’re probably right that it’s RAM heavy, but the fact that forum software could get anywhere close to 3GB of RAM is exactly what I was talking about with websites being made into full-blown apps when they don’t need to be. I could rant about this for a week, but I’ll spare you
Nah, that’s the same as the Robin. I was wondering if it was very low like some of the other budget phones. Very odd indeed…
Could also depend on what browser you are using.
It’s equally bad on Firefox, Brave, Opera and Edge
Why not use their app?
The only app I’ve seen for android just uses Chrome under the hood I think (or embedded webkit or whatever it is)
I use Firefox on my Oneplus 5 never had any issues with Discourse. Phone has 8gb RAM though so this might be the difference.
App for iOS and Andriod were mentioned here;
They are just sort of embedded browsers though.
Does anyone think we will at some point be migrated on to a new platform if Discourse doesn’t meet some GDPR criteria in time?
Can’t imagine it. Discourse is a paid for service so I’d imagine they are up to speed.
It’s only paid for if they don’t host it themselves, otherwise it’s completely free (ignoring other hosting costs).
Didn’t realise. Just seen it on Github though. In that case, I’d assume its hosted on AWS, again which would be on European region.
Which mean it is the paid for service and hosted by Discourse
