updated #friendica to last dev.. let's see..

arrived :-)

? It seem I have some problem with unicode in old messages body (emoticons and like), but not in new ones like this.

You have to set the DB encoding explicitely in the config file to match the one from your DB.

can I set it in .htconfig or I need to switch to ini config?
and if I can set it in .htconfig, how?
(sorry, I didn't followed last development...)

Yes you can set it in htconfig. Something like

$a->config["system"]["db_charset"] = 'utf8mb4';

Here is the thread in the forum about it.

Fixed, thank you 👍😎

@Tobias how do you set it if the tables have different encoding? I never touched that manually but saw some table are different.

Probably there is different encodings used for some reason?

Here was the post were I mentioned the encoding differences between tables:

I don't think so. Some time ago we switched the default encoding from utf8 to utf8mb4 and the collation from utf8_general_ci to utf8mb4_general_ci. So, new tables and fields probably are utf8mb4 encoded and old stuff is still utf8. That's not a problem as long as you don't change the encoding setting of your database server.

You could try setting $a->config['system']['db_charset'] = "latin1";. MySQL had "latin1" as default for a long time.

Friclicli: Friendica CLI client
@Friendica Developers

I started to work on a CLI client for Friendica named friclicli. At the moment I'm working on the foundation of the client: A C library (called libfriclient) with functions representing Friendica API routes (one function per route). The client will use a curses interface (probably ncurses). To make requests to the Friendica API the libcurl library will be used. JSON data will be processed using the cJSON library.

The source code repository is here:

The client will be programmed in C and licensed under the GPLv3+.

FOSDEM 2017 - Accepted developer rooms

I see there is a "Decentralized internet" room for the first time, great news! Anyone from #Diaspora, #Friendica, #Hubzilla, #GNUSocial, #Pumpio, #Mediagoblin or other #decentralized social network project peeps planning to submit talks? Doesn't look like the call for proposals is out yet for this room. Will be sure to spend some time in this room in any case.

@MediaGoblin (Christopher) - maybe a good chance to push out #ActivityPub if you're planning to attend this year, hmm?

There is now a forum @Friendica Hackathon not only for this one now in Berlin, but in general to discuss such things.
