Hi, I just discovered Aether yesterday through Scuttlebutt. I’ve been clicking around for a few hours and I must say I’m very impressed! Did you really build this all on your own, Burak? If so, that’s amazing!
Anyway, I was a bit surprised by how little activity it seemed to be on there, I get that it’s fairly new and that there’s some friction having to install an app and all, but still. I’m not sure if it’s actually little activity, or if I’m just not connecting to the network properly. I got a friend to join and we can’t find each other so something seem to not be right. It would make more sense if I couldn’t see any subs at all, but I can.
My backend is yellow and inbound and outbound conns. are showing 0, I’ve seen outbound showing 1 sometimes though. I’m guessing this is the problem? Unfortunately I can’t open any ports where I’m renting at the moment so I can’t test that until I move in about 8 weeks.
Some other issues I’ve encounter is that when I try to quit Aether it doesn’t shut down properly, it’s doing something in the background. If I try to re-open it, nothing happens. I have to manually kill it and then it opens fine again.
I also tried to bring my frontend_config.json to another machine. This resulted in endless loading at start up. Deleting the .json solved it, but then it obviously opened as the default first time startup. I started a new thread on one machine and tried to find it on another after an hour or so, but no luck.
A bit of a shame as I really like this and would like to start using it (and possibly become a supporter), but I guess I’ll try again in about 8 weeks if there’s no other way around this issue right now?
Lastly, I think this should have official Linux support! I get that the Linux userbase is small and that it’s probably a bit of a pain with all the different distros and stuff, but being a FOSS platform it makes sense to officially support a FOSS OS. I also feel like Linux users might be more interested in this than the average person so even though we’re few and far between, we might make up a significant % of the Aether userbase?
Other than the issues, I love it! I’ll definitely keep an eye on the development going forward, keep up the good work!
