Yes, some option for big endian dates to meet expectations.
The dates in the UI confuse me. I expect to see big endian dates, just as we see when destructuredya, ma, da := b.lines[i].At.Local().Date()
with year-month-day as expected with ISO 8601. This does not match my OS's locale or cultural expectations.
The red of the unread message counter reminds me too much of other platforms and my brain has been trained that this is a notification indicator that I need to get rid of it. IRC doesn't necessitate this sort of urgency, but I find myself clicking and not reading just to make the red dot go away.
- gray for notification count
- red iff it includes a mention
- bonus: configure both of those colors
Recently there were max widths added for the side panels. What I would however like to see is a max width for the text from users. With optimal reading length being at around 65 characters, on a wide monitor and at full screen, the lines get way too long to read comfortably.
If implemented, what I would expect to see is something more akin to "zen mode"--so thin side panels (users, rooms), and whitespace padding to center the content main content given a max text width parameter.
#rm1 | 00:00 usr main panel text main panel text | foo #rm2 | 00:00 usr' main panel text main panel text | bar
There isn't a good reason not to also support a light theme on the same principles, although I wouldn't be actively using it. The only issue that comes up is that in keeping 8-bit color support, hues may shift quite a bit.
