#Mastodon now has a protocol handler (thanks @Gargron and the rest of the devs!):
Follow me from any instance: web+mastodon://follow?uri=acct:email@example.com
Share a custom text: web+mastodon://share?text=I+love+kittens
Use these on your "Follow" and "Share" buttons all over the internet!
@gilscottfitzgerald @fdavidcl these URLs open a page with confirmation, they don't literally fulfill an action straight away
That is seriously cool. What version of Mastodon do we have to be running for that to work?
@simon_brooke Anything after September 11, 2017 should do
@fdavidcl @Gargron Do you have a link to the documentation of this?
I want to check if we can like a status or something like that...
Is that all that the protocol handlers are capable of or then can make more stuff?
@ekaitz_zarraga I think there are only intents for following and sharing: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/blob/master/app/controllers/intents_controller.rb
I don't know if these features are documented, I just followed the related issues at the time (https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/issues/442 & https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/pull/4511)
@fdavidcl Thank you!I'll take a deeper look to this. :)
