David @fdavidcl

now has a protocol handler (thanks @Gargron and the rest of the devs!):

Follow me from any instance: web+mastodon://follow?uri=acct:fdavidcl@mstdn.io

Share a custom text: web+mastodon://share?text=I+love+kittens

Use these on your "Follow" and "Share" buttons all over the internet!

@fdavidcl @Gargron Is there a method to ensure that "I liek mudkipz" doesn't get posted to my account whenever some assholes javascript gets loaded by the shittastic mini-os that is my webbrowser?

@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: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

I don't know if these features are documented, I just followed the related issues at the time (github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/ & github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/)
