I like the text client!
I have a citadel installation on my laptop and use the text client sometimes, since webcit isn't installed.
I can highly recommend this setup, since Thunderbird really slows down on large cached mail folders.
I have Thunderbird imap in to the local, actually in to an lxc container that runs only citadel.
Besides the local client, I am also curious have you ever considered providing access to public rooms via the gopher protocol.
This should work great for mobile connectivity since it will use much less bandwidth.
I know this would be against the webcit principle since webcit saves (unfortunately) everything as html.
Creating a gopher only room template and providing access with citadel would be the way to go I guess.
Any thoughts? The gopher protocol is very simple.
For low bandwidth and/or low processing power, you could also use any text-based IMAP client like Pine or Mutt.
I don't know about using Pine or Matt on an Android or iPhone.
I guess you could, but I meant something more like a Gopher browser like Overbite
Goforit TaMeR. If you will program it, I will use it :-) Double if you write it in Python:
Sounds like a great idea!!
Having seen gopher, via overbite, on android; i can only think it would be a great candidate for 'the' citadel mobile client, as far as the BBS goes (floors and rooms), without the groupware.
Agreed Mo. Thanks for suggesting it to me. Love using Gopher (even works well over 2G networks!)
Sig, I hear ya. I suggested Citadel to my peeps doing low bandwidth comms with good old Eric Westguard (NY9D). Hope you have the chance to meet him some day Sig. He is an all around good guy. Knows tech, and he knows politics. But #1 he knows tech and how to motivate people.
