API field user for forum posts

Hello @Friendica Support ,

with the latest release the values in the field user was changed to the forum user instead of the original author. In the last release the friendica_owner field was changed from the forum user to the author (see issue 5884). I would prefer the author in the user field and the forum user in the friendica_owner field.

New Friendiqa version 0.4

Hi there,
I put a new version of Friendiqa at my binary F-Droid repo https://www.ma-nic.de/fdroid/repo.
I wasted lots of hours to implement a background sync feature. The replies API was also implemented and the app asks now for storage access permission on first start (a feature of Android >6). If you find any bugs, please report them. I will put the version in the Playstore after some days.
@Friendica Developers @Friendiqa
Why were those hours wasted? Doesn't it work?
Marco R. Friendica
It works, but I had to reimplement the news part again in Qt C++ (formerly JavaScript) and feared I have to reimplement it again in Java along the way. The Android JobScheduler is only available from Java so I had to do stuff again in a language I don't like. The worst part was to find a way stop the Qt service and then the Java part in order to restart it when it gets called from Android. It took a lot of trying and failing...
I'm sorry about that...
good job and thanks 😍

Qt background tasks

Does anyone know how to start scheduled background tasks in Qt? Is there some timer class or some OS specific thing like the JobScheduler in Android?

Those are just timers, not "background task". When the timer fires it triggers the event handlers, where you do the job.
You application must be running for timers to do their job.

If you want to have some code running at specific intervals also when you application is not running, that's a OS specific thing.
Fabio Friendica
For example, this is the timer that refresh notification in Friendly, all in QML.
Thank you! Android kills all apps regularly and you have to create services for background tasks due to battery saving. I wonder what the mechanism on Plasma Mobile etc. is and how battery is working...
Fabio Friendica
I don't know. On Sailfish is simple: apps in store can't have background timers.
Apps outside store can register a user timer service with systemd...
So no background sync for social media with apps from store? Hmmm...

Do NOT consume palm oil. Palm oil plantations KILL helpless orangutans on purpose. When you eat processed food products with palm oil, THIS is what you are buying.

Palm oil and species extinction
​Quote Taken from COP (Centre For Orangutan Protection)
"Orangutans’ #poaching is done deliberately as a policy made by #palmoil #corporations. Therefore they hire local people as pest busters, who serve the #corporation with #killing any #wild #animals, including #orangutans, which spoil #palm oil trees within the #plantations. The pest busters will bring up a cut-off hand of an #orangutan they have killed and hand it to the corporation as a proof. When they find an adult female orangutan with her baby, they will usually kill the ‘mother‘ and take away the baby for pet or sale".

It is estimated that over 50 Orangutan are killed every week due to #deforestation. #Forest homes are cleared by either heavy machinery or fire. Orangutans are left starved with no #food source and often trapped in pockets of isolated areas with no way out and often wander onto plantations searching for food. The orangutan are considered a pest by many of the oil palm companies as they often destroy young palm plants in the hope of finding food.​ They are run over by excavation equipment, doused in petrol and burnt alive, captured, tortured, beaten, shot with air guns or slaughtered. As forest home is destroyed they become vulnerable to poachers. Infant orangutans have monetary value and are often kept as pets or illegally smuggled, the only way a mother will let go of her infant is if she has been killed.
