I disagree. I don’t want to view reddit I want to get away from reddit.
Just don’t use it. It’s probably an optional feature.
ideally yes, but dev time is scarce and maybe the libreddit devs wanted to use a different language etc.
Libreddit is actually also written in Rust, but yeah, the choice of frameworks, coding style, architecture etc. can still make a big difference.
In general, building something from scratch is often more time-efficient than learning an existing codebase and trying to push it into a new direction.
I think that Lemmy can be it’s own thing. It doesn’t need to hang on the coattails of reddit.
I can see how accessing reddit content from lemmy, thus supporting reddit might be a problem for some people who don’t like big corporation/closed source software.
I think lemmy and libreddit are fundamentally two different projects because they have different goals and should stay as such.
A community for sharing those miniature epiphanies you have that highlight the oddities within the familiar.
