If you're making a Farcaster client, please add the option for users to set the hub address they want.
Hmm most apps read from a database that indexes a hub so this would make it pretty difficult to assemble any sort of feed (home, channels, notifications, etc)
here's how we solved it at ketl.xyz (sorry, wisdom unavailable to ssr devs) anyone can set their eth rpc and ipfs nodes anyone can also start any small piece of centralized infra (e.g., push notifications server or view counter) and mix and match indexer would be a smallocroservice people can start themselves
It does not make me happy, but 1. it's good for users and devs to know the limitations of each app design. 2. Is there a standard API used? 3. I'd be willing to build a "plugin" that runs next to a hub and exposes #2, or (maybe) we could ask @neynar to provide something like this for their API.
