Shining warm (and cool) lights on LBRY Kelvin

Samuel Bryan • Feb 5 2020

Reposts, content type icons, comment editing and more are here in the coolest LBRY Desktop release ever.

Look, we get paid by how ridiculous our titles are, okay? You’ll probably live. But, caveat emptor and all.

Let’s look at what’s in LBRY Kelvin.

Download Kelvin for desktop



Reposts are inspired by retweets on Twitter, sharing on Facebook, or reposts on Tumblr, but designed for LBRY.

This update allows reposts to display in your browser, but does not allow your browser to issue them (command line junkies, go here).

You can see an example repost in the official @lbry channel.

Reposts will be a big part of our quest to have 500,000 new followers on the LBRY network this month, as we enable creators to recommend other creators and improve content discovery in general.

Content Type Icons and Download Buttons

You will now see feedback on tiles regarding content types, as well as download buttons. Sweet!

Content type icons

Comment Editing and Deleting

The title says it. Now you can fat finger comments with reckless abandon. Click the menu in the top right of your comment to access these features.
