Gluon - Added basic posting

Today I worked on getting some sort of posting into the app. So, if you’re hosting on Micro.blog, you can now post a short post.

It’s still very much a work in progress but I wanted to get it off my chest.

So, if you have a site on Micro.blog you’ll be presented with a “New Post” button at the top bar on the main timeline screen. This will use your “default” site and post to it.

You cannot set a title just yet, but I’ll get to it after the weekend. Image uploads are also not yet present. It’s all coming.

I’m going to take some time and work on both the Reply and Posting screen to allow you to preview the post and also add markdown shortcuts for those that are new to it all. Also I have other features planned for those screens, but I’ll sit on it until I have something to show.

What about self-hosted sites? It’s coming! I’ve built the groundwork so any Micropub based site can be used, however it also requires me to set up new screens with options and other logic, so bear with me on this. It’s certainly coming! My own site is self-hosted, so it’s something I want to do for sure!

Anyway, still a way to go and I’m happy with the way it’s going so far.
