Manga Reader Site

Halo

If you didn't know we've created a new site for our translation group (Consisting of @Ene and @Vajra). Currently they've been working their asses off translating Aragae! Dark Elf-Chan.
I'd appreciate feedback be left here, and we are currently looking for another translator and typesetter to add another manga to our catalog (If you have any suggestions leave that alongside your comment).

Currently the manga site is very barebones, you're able to browse the amazing catalog of 1 manga, and read it. I'm working on the core features (listed below) currently, before adding all the fancy extra bits and bobs onto it.
If you have any suggestions for what you consider to be important comment it and I'll consider adding it onto the (non-existent) roadmap.


  • Accounts
    • Account Creation
    • Bookmarks
    • Favorites
  • Manga Uploading
    • Insert new manga record
    • upload chapter
    • edit existing chapter
    • edit existing manga record
  • Tagging
    • create tag
    • add tag to manga
    • search by tag
  • Searching
    • functional search lol
  • Android App (If there's enough interest down the line)


At the moment I'm working on adding in a way to upload the manga so Vajra and Ene can do it themselves (Currently I have to manually edit the database :p). Should there be interest I also wanted to look into making an (android) app as I know many people consider being able to browse comfortably on mobile very important. If you've got any interest in helping with that just say so, I'm incredibly inexperienced (AKA None) in that field, and always stubbornly looking for help. Hell I barely know what I'm doing half the time with the backend :p.
If you've also got experience with JS, or just making websites look pretty and function smoothly, I am open to suggestions/help

Outside of that just commenting your thoughts on the UI and how everything functions is great help too, who knows maybe I can host some other TL group down the line too (Maybe even anime :zt-think:)

Anyway go check out Aragae! Dark Elf-Chan at https://varis.social please and thank you
also give Ene and Vajra a hand for doing the actual translations + typesetting, they've been really speedy at getting this done, and this project wouldn't even exist without them

If it's within my level, I dont mind doing another manga/doujin on the side.
Like a page or two a day while I do Aragae, maybe

Consider making a Tachiyomi extension instead of a standalone android app. Tachiyomi is already a pretty good app for reading manga on android, and having to deal with more apps is annoying.
never heard of it but i will keep it in mind.
also sounds far easier than having to make my own app lol

if you've got an idea of what to translate on the side then feel free. Once the chapter you're doing on the side is all translated you can just send that all together as well. Ask Vajra though to see if he's got the spare time.

A dark mode is all you need, honestly. And maybe a zoom option? Otherwise it's ok.
Oh and, "page mode" and "scroll mode".

Why on the main site?
cause this is a WIP. I'm trying to gather feedback.
it's the reason why I had no idea they existed as options. Make it part of the manga page.
feedback like this.
I know it needs to be added onto the manga/read pages. It's on the front page at the moment to make development easier.
As I said it's very barebones atm, but i'll be sure to add that at some point.

I know it may be nitpicking, but I kinda expected to go to the next chapter when clicking for the next page on a chapter's last page.

It doesn't for me either. Sends me back to the first page in the chapter im reading. Chrome Version 94.0.4606.81
yeah it doesn't do that lol. I think he's confusing the first page of the chapter with the next one.
Once I'm done with the v1 of the API I'll add that.

When I tested it I was using my phone and it works there for some reason. :megu-shrug: But in a normal browser no. I just assumed that since the phone did that a normal browser would.

weird. that's a bug then, it shouldn't do that :thonk: Might be that you accidentally hit a button that wasn't actually rendering

It's possible to infinetly press the next chapter button in scroll mode and keep going to blank pages. Not sure if you're aware of that or even want to fix it
