Dianara is a pump.io client, an application for GNU/linux that allows users to manage their pump.io social networking accounts without the need to use a web browser.
Here's a summary of the main things it can do at this point: Posting text with some formatting, uploading pictures, audio, video and other files, receiving and navigating the timelines, liking/commenting/sharing/deleting/editing posts, liking, editing and deleting comments, editing your profile, changing your avatar, following/unfollowing people and managing contacts and person lists.
You can run 2 or more instances of Dianara with different configurations, by using the "--config" command line parameter.
Dianara is available in Chakra, Mageia 4, Debian Testing/Sid, Ubuntu 13.10/14.04 KaosX and openSuse Factory repositories.
Archlinux packages (via AUR) here:
Gentoo ebuild: http://packages.gentoo.org/package/net-im/dianara
Fedora packages here: http://sylke.altervista.org/repo/
MSwindows builds available here: http://luisgf.es/pump/
If you need to build from source, check the INSTALL file carefully for building instructions, and the BUGS and TODO files to see all the known issues.
In July 2013, identi.ca completed the migration to the pump.io platform, so its users can use Dianara to manage their identi.ca accounts now.
Dianara is available in English, Catalan, Spanish and Italian languages. Partially translated to German and Polish.
If you're interested in translating it to your language, let me know. It's quite easy.
- Proxy configuration support. Password is not stored securely, so you can leave it empty and be prompted for it on startup.
- Animated images are now animated when viewed in the separate image viewer.
- Filters are now case insensitive, ie. "openfarmgame" matches "OpenFarmGame".
- Added a delay before reloading all comments after posting a reply.
- Enhanced initialization, so Dianara will keep on trying to get all initial data (your profile, etc) if it fails initially.
- Basic Help window.
- Configurable "unread post" color.
- Show To/CC info in the timestamp tooltip of minor feed activities.
- The Normalize Text Colors option in posts works in most cases now.
- Link color is no longer specified, so other contacts will see links in the color configured by them.
- New way to show attachments, including attached images.
- Better filename suggestions when saving attachments.
- Option to create bullet lists in the Format menu.
- More symbols in the Format > Symbols menu.
- Ask for confirmation when quitting Dianara if a post is being composed.
- Pressing Enter in title field jumps to message body. Likewise, pressing the Up Arrow at the start of the message jumps to the title field.
- Better notification of authentication-related errors.
- Added some more fallback icons, for environments without (good) iconsets.
- Updated Italian translation, by Metal Biker.
- Partial updates to Polish translation by Derping Muffins and CyberKiller, and German translation by Emvigo.
- Other small fixes.
- Upload of other media types (audio, video, misc files).
Keep in mind that most people won't be able to see these at the moment!
