Hi, this concerns cwtch 1.4 on MacOs Big Sur.
A few bugs i ran into :

  • unable to personalize profile.name
    when creating a new profile, i tried to change the default "profile.name" for a new one and when saving the profile, it still says "profile.name".

  • uninstalling second instance of cwtch deletes profile of the other instance
    wanted to run the nightly 1.5 alongside the regular 1.4, but when using uninstall app to get rid of the nightly build, it deleted my profile from the 1.4 version. Is there a way to uninstall just the version i wish ?

  • address attached to profile name of contact in chat window
    dunno whether this is a bug, but my contact has not just his profile name in the chat window, but the complete string of his address attached to it, which makes the left pane of the chat window bulk enormously...

a request :

  • the ability to pick your avatar from the default stock (even before being able to use your own jpg).
    I'm currently having one I really dislike. A way to change this ?

unable to personalize profile.name

Ah yeah, I noticed this yeterday. It was a regression from 1.3 to 1.4. It will be fixed in 1.5

You can run with the CWTCH_HOME environment variable to specify a differnt directory for Cwtch profile (we do this with our dev profiles e.g.). Currently we don't expose this in the app.

address attached to profile name of contact in chat window

Thanks for this report. Will look into this (at best it sounds like there is a ui issue to fix).

the ability to pick your avatar from the default stock

Currently these are auto-selected based on the generated onion address of the profile. The only way to change it is to create a new profile. We are very close to allowing custom profile images though, I would expect this functionality to be in 1.6 or 1.7.

ok, but that's still a bit far off no ? Thing is it's rather awkard for a dude (and his interlocutor) to have an avatar representing a hulkish green girl in bikini... The other person might think I'm having gender issues lol... So in the meantime, I'd be ok with just being able to choose from the stock avatars...
