My new contributions to the Hive Condenser

Context

I have been involved (voluntarily) with the development of the Condenser & Wallet apps (that are powering https://hive.blog and https://wallet.hive.blog) for quite a while now. There are other great frontends to Hive out there such as https://peakd.com and https://ecency.com but I have always been more or less faithful with the Condenser.

This is a regular report on my new contributions. Some of the new work below might still be in test and not yet deployed.

Cover image selection

@lublujizn86 reminded us of a feature that would be helpful for the Condenser. Currently, when you create a blog, the first image in your post will be used as the cover image for the post summary in lists of posts. However, this is not always ideal, you might want use images in their chronological order to follow your story but the best image for your post might not necessarily be the first one.

Post summary

When browsing a list of posts (trending, hot etc...), the Condenser usually displays an excerpt of the post which does not always make sense especially if you usually use a repetitive introduction such as the context section above. A post summary allows you to describe what your post is about in a succinct way.
