  • Lunyr Dev Update — Citations, Predictive Search, Collaboration Tools and Tagging

    Hello everyone! Welcome to another Lunyr update. We’re proud to share our progress for the past month!

    Citations

    We have added tools to make citations much easier.

    Now, when editing your article, the citation assistant will help you add citations. When you double click on a word, CITE will be given as an option.

    This will simplify the process of adding citations to an article and keep it formatted as is suggested in the Writing Manual.

    In the longer term, this will allow us to improve our article quality by creating a list of trusted citation sources which articles are checked against to further enhance quality.

    Predictive Search

    The Search bar in the upper left hand corner of the site is now predictive. It will search as each character as typed rather than wait for the search to be completed.

    As you can see in the image above, the search prioritizes the title first, then the body of the article.

    Tagging

    Authors and Reviewers now have the ability to tag articles.

    In order to tag an article, the user must first propose a tag and then a second user must endorse the tag.

    Proposing a tag and associating a tag to an article are two separate actions with two separate barriers to entry.

    • A user must have a minimum of 250 HNR to propose a tag
    • A user must have a minimum of 50 HNR to associate an existing tag with an article
    • A user must have a minimum of 50 HNR to remove a tag from an article
    • A user must not be blacklisted to perform a tag operation
    • A tag is only “created” once 2 unique users fitting the above criteria propose the tag

    Creating tags are rewarded and will further enhance your author reputation as introduced in last month’s update.

    Reward points will be distributed as follows (open to change):

    Once tagged, an article can be more easily searched for and filtered on. This will build a foundation for a more friendly and efficient user experience as this functionality is built upon.

    Collaboration Tools

    You are now able to add comments to other authors articles while it is in the draft stage, enabling you to collaborate on articles prior to publishing.



  • Lunyr Dev Update — Orbiter

    Hello everyone! Welcome to another Lunyr update. We’re proud to share our progress for the past month!

    As mentioned in our last update, we have been working on a completely decentralized app, code named Orbiter. This dapp has been fully rebuilt with a primary focus on complete decentralization.

    Using the new app:

    Download

    As you can see from the screenshot above, this new dapp will be a desktop download and be available for Windows, Mac and Linux, just like our other desktop apps now. It will also be available at the same location as usual: https://lunyr.com/downloads

    Login and Accounts

    Login will no longer utilize the traditional email address that you are used to when logging on to our website. You now login with your Ethereum address:

    And, as you can see, you can have multiple accounts.

    Note: Once you download the dapp and login, you will be able to import your Lunyr.com account, which includes your LUN and Ether.

    Authoring

    Tasks like Authoring and Editing will feel familiar as it will be the same as you have been doing on our website:

    Availability

    Our full expectation is to have the Alpha of this released next week with the following features:

    • Authoring
    • Reading
    • Peer Review
    • Wallet
    • Account Creation

    This dapp will continue to be updated over the coming weeks as we mentioned in our last update.
