Steem Keychain Progress Update 3 - Localization

As promised in the Steem Keychain proposal, we will post regular updates to show our progress.

Version 1.7 is finally live and it finally brought up localization.

Apart from a few bug fixes, most of the work time has been dedicated to this feature that, after a big refactor, allows Steem Keychain to be used in multiple languages.
Nothing to setup, the extension will simply follow the default language of your browser if it is supported, if not it will default to English.

Supported languages

As of now, Steem Keychain is available in English, Spanish (translations by @healthrecipes), Korean (translations by @dakeshi), Chinese (Simplified and Traditional translations by @mimiruby) and French (translations by @stoodkev).
Thanks a lot to the translators and especially to @dakeshi that helped a lot with the testing and debugging of the feature.
We will keep rolling out new languages progressively, following the needs of the community.

Next steps

We will continue going down the list of features detailed in the SPS proposal, with a particular focus to the following :

  • Give support for multiple keys and multisig accounts
  • Give further support to Keychain integration to Communities

Feature requests

We are listening to the community. Do not hesitate to drop feature requests on our Github repository or contact me on Discord (@stoodkev#8281)

Thank you!

On behalf of our team, a big thank you to the community for helping us fund Steem Keychain through SPS.

Is there a way to disable the Witness ad at the bottom of the Steem Keychain pop-up window? (I have already voted for @yabapmatt and @aggroed for witness)

23.02.2020 10:49

It will disappear when you vote for the 3, just saying x)

Bug report: The content often does not fit in the Steem Keychain pop-up window and is cropped at the bottom like in this example:


23.02.2020 10:52

Thanks for the report, which browser are you using? OS?

23.02.2020 15:43

Brave and Opera in Windows

23.02.2020 17:15

Okay ill take a look and fix it for next release.

23.02.2020 18:55

I just thought I mention that this problem occurs because us older users like to set the fonts bigger because letters may seem too small for us and for some other reasons we do not want to set the resolution lower to compensate.

In my browser, you can set standard and minimum fonts at: chrome://settings/fonts
For the same reasons we set these fonts bigger we would prefer you worked around these larger fonts rather than forced us to use smaller fonts.

Right now, I am using 14 in Times New Roman for the standard font and I do not have this problem any more. The font may be set from 9 to 72. These may seem strange but might make sense to have a very large font number on a display with a very high resolution.

How about support for mobile users?

We plan to support mobile in the future. Probably after SMTs integration.

23.02.2020 15:44

I’m using steemwallet’s browser, that integrate keychain function on mobile: it works pretty well! 😍

23.02.2020 15:54

Brilliant tool to make our life easier on the chain - am a fan. If you need to support for local German language version please let me know.

Love Keychain but please, why can't we use it on mobile devices? Steemconnect is horrendous on mobile and Steem generally is terrible to use on mobile. No one seems to push mobile use as a priority but yet that's the number one key to mass adoption. No one apart from techies sit in front of a PC or laptop all day, we are all on our phones and tablets!!

23.02.2020 16:32

Well you can't because we didnt develop it yet ^^ In the meantime, you can use @roelandp 's Steem Wallet on mobile.

Not sure if its needed, but I can translate keychain into danish.

23.02.2020 17:43

Thanks for the great service and keeping us updated. I've only just returned to steem and was wondering why the partiko app I used to love the notifications stopped working it only took me to join the discord server to find that the project has been abandoned?!

Are you aware that the link you supply to delegate to bots =>

goes to after the inputs are filled in (I fill my user name and therising) which gives an error "There's nothing here, yet."

I am therefore unable to delegate to therising (probably other ones as well)
This has been going on for at least 2 weeks.
Earlier I was using to delegate to therising however that one went bust.

Also, how to delegate the new HIVE coins?

08.05.2020 15:49

Hi @devrim! I`m here to help :) If you want to delegate, please make a comment (for example replay to this one) like this:
I want to delegate X sp to @user
Where X is the amount of SP and @user is the steem user you want to delegate to. For example:
I want to delegate 100 sp to @steem-keychain
@tipU will answer with a delegation link. Hope this helps!:)
