I just raised a couple of feature request tickets for brid.gy.

The first is to check a page for a specific element and if extant pass on as a content warning to the mastodon api.

The second is to read the server’s character count limit at the time of connecting an account and using it as a basis for truncation rather than apply a 500 character limit across the board.

I’m not sure how doable these are but seem reasonably simple and would be handy.

apparently the mastodon api doesn’t expose character limit and though pleroma does in an addition to the mastodon api the dev of brid.gy isn’t currently looking at extending the functionality for pleroma. Fair enough.

He did share a link exlpaining how to add a new silo to brid.gy so if I can find the time and can follow the instructions, then I might just clone the mastodon one and add this additional api call.. it’ll be pretty far down the todo list though.
