since people are talking about it, here's PocketToot, a Mastodon API client (tested with 2.3.3, Pleroma untested but likely compatible) for Windows Mobile 5 in the Pocket PC form factor. (2003/Smartphone unsupported; see README)
Pushed a new binary build: https://github.com/NattyNarwhal/PocketToot/releases/tag/2018-04-28
read the latest README for instructions on how to install/use: https://github.com/NattyNarwhal/PocketToot/blob/master/README.md
show me your PDAs/smartphones running it!
@calvin This will end up with me booting up the IBM z50 and then enabling all sorts of broken SSL on my Mastodon server... (Not before the next weekend though...)
@galaxis @calvin z50's far too old for this, you need Windows Mobile 5 Pocket PC (which is CE 5.x), z50 is running CE 2.11 Handheld PC I think.
@bhtooefr @calvin Ah right. Too much retro again... Don't think I have any CE devices that modern.
@galaxis ...although .NET Compact Framework 1.0 SP3 has been backported to CE 2.x, apparently: https://archive.codeplex.com/?p=netcfwince200
But, you'd need to backport to that target, and redo the UI, I think.
@bhtooefr @galaxis I could backport to 2003, but TLS is even crumblier there
@calvin @galaxis I suspect you'd basically just have to bring in your own TLS library to run as far back as CE 2.xx?
@bhtooefr @galaxis .NET actually can run on 2.11, it's been backported; though it'd be the 1.x runtime, and not the 3.5 I depend on
1.x means no generics, autoprops, JSON parsing libs, and especially no funcprog
