I work on diaspora* in my free time, and ... unfortunately we don't have a public API yet.

There is however an app for the Firefox OS marketplace which integrates with the mobile browser version, if that is of any help to you.

I'd love to invite everyone who wants to help with this to work closely with the diaspora* project. We'd really appreciate it ;-)

Update: work on an API has begun and parts of it should be present in the upcoming major version. It's OpenID based and REST-ful, so should be not very hard to make an actual client to consume it.

Personally I use the Android Diaspora Webclient, found at the F-Droid market.

As far as i have seen there is no advantage for the Android app compared to the web interface you can access by browser.

The mobile web app version on firefox os saves your login for quite some time when compared to opening from normal browser and is very convenient. Agreed that its all mobile HTML but its really well designed for the mobile web browser.

Isn't this kind of service integration exactly what jolla is trying to acheive by means of open development and collaboration? No-one can integrate their service into iPhone or android (like Dropbox or Whatsapp) but jolla seems to encourage participation to make services an integral part of the user experience. So if I understand it right, it is up to *diaspora developers to approach jolla and benefit from their openness. However how to, doesn't seem to be very clear yet.

Is there a way to run the diaspora app? or any other webapp?

Please also add the possibility to use Friendica-Accounts. Friendica is in my opinion the best open social network software out there.

that is worth its own feature-request -> please create a new integration request of your own.

This is not an answer, please convert to a comment.

the api is being heavily worked on and probably soon it will be possible to get native app. for now using diaspora android app from fdroid is a good option.

also upcomming release of sailfish browser will include opening launcher shortcuts as new tabs which will make webapps bit less pain to use. i will scramble small patch with those changes in awaiting new browser version in coming days.
