I just released #Tootle 1.0 (Alpha 1), which aims to be a lightweight Mastodon client for Linux desktops and phones
You can read the change log and download the sources here: https://github.com/bleakgrey/tootle/releases/tag/v1.0-alpha1
A Flatpak version will be prepared soon, so stay tuned :3
I was about to write about #Tootle being my pet project that I maintain in my free time and that donations keep me motivated...
But then I remembered that PayPal has suspended my account, lol
Let's put this topic on hold and just have a nice day instead while I'm looking for an alternative, mkay?
@minkiu It's powered by Stripe, which doesn't work in Russia :c
@bleakgrey Darn it.
@minkiu Yeah, same
@bleakgrey congrats on the release! 🎉
I am already stanning it.
@oct2pus Granite is no more! Tootle is now targeted at GNOME
@bleakgrey I'll do that when I can give some useful information with the bug report ;)
@nurinoas Feel free to open issues with concrete suggestions (if they don't exist yet) :>
@bleakgrey amazing! Thanks a lot for your work dude.
@bleakgrey this name is already taken by an iOS client that has been around a while, you should probably think about a more general name too if you are planning on supporting Pleroma or Misskey or any other compatible servers that don't use the Toot phrasing...
@bleakgrey Sweet! 🤩
A project like this has been on my wishlist for a while.
@bleakgrey Great, It finaly doesn't crash on start for me anymore.
I know custom Gtk themes are not supported, but I still like flat-remix-gtk very much. But there are a few issues with it on tootle. I'd be great if you could look into that.
@bleakgrey This client looks really good 👍 I prefer webclients on my desktop computer but I'll try out Tootle on my PinePhone when it arrives.The screenshots look like it's more or less responsible so I hope that it works well on the small display.
@nipos Looking forward to your feedback!
@bleakgrey It will be one of the first apps I test.Mastodon is already one of the most important use cases for my current phone.Let's see when the PinePhone arrives.
@bleakgrey Great work! I'm really a fan of the 1.0, and I can see a lot of great improvements, both stability-wise and feature-wise.
@bleakgrey One thing, though: Is it just on my machine or does the app download all media to the home folder and open it from there by design?
@phel They should appear in "$HOME/Downloads/Tootle". If they appear *just* in your Home, then it's a bug and I'd like that reported.
@bleakgrey Ah I see. Yes, they do appear just in my home dir. I don't have a GitHub Account and I don't plan on creating one, so is there another way?
@phel I'll just add this to my todo list then :)
@bleakgrey Great! Thanks!
