It should be possible to extend lotide to support a traditional linear thread view, which could then be used to build a frontend for that use case
Does that require any lotide changes? It sounds like something a frontend could do by attributing replies to the parent post rather than to a comment.
Currently comment listing in the API is nested, and I wouldn't want a frontend to try to unpack that
I've added an option on the
tradbranch to return post comments linearly
There's an openapi spec in the repo here: https://git.sr.ht/~vpzom/lotide/tree/master/item/openapi/openapi.json
