Still on the lookout for a native macOS Mastodon client. I think if use have a client, and not a web page, I'll use it more often (and won't forget about it). If anybody has any suggestions, let me know!

@gabek I’m not aware of a native client, but you could use fluidapp.com to convert the web-app into a Mac app. That’s what I’m doing right now.

@julianruf @gabek
Nativefier (github.com/jiahaog/Nativefier) should work fine with either the main Mastodon web interface, or with Pinafore. You could use it with brutaldon, but that would be Extremely Silly.

@gcupc @julianruf @gabek I may just use Nativefier for now also...

I'd also suggest showing your support for this. The designer of Tweetbot is floating the idea of Kickstarting a Mac Mastodon client: twitter.com/tapbot_paul/status

@ndaught @gcupc @julianruf I don't know how i missed that. Thank you for pointing me to that Tweet!

@ryanvis @ryan659 I should give Whalebird a shot. It's not completely native, but it seems to be as close as I can find. Thanks!

@ryanvis @gabek I've been trying Whalebird, it's alright... Easy to accidentally lose a Toot you haven't sent yet by clicking outside the "composer" on accident. Just a bit clunky feeling overall.

@gabek There's this: whalebird.org/

Kinda prefer a browser tab personally, but to each their own.

@gabek I'm using Whalebird, though still need to resort to the site occasionally, as it often doesn't support getting at a notification's account to follow them.
