mastodon-webview is a wonderful little app that puts the #Mastodon web UI in its own little window/app.
Written in Go using the webview library that makes use of system webview components the result is a small 2.4Mb binary. This in comparison to #electron apps where every app ships an entire copy of Chromium.
Unfortunately there is a bug in the hardware that causes it to emit a high pitched whine (https://olimex.wordpress.com/2018/01/19/teres-i-diy-open-source-hardware-modular-hackers-laptop-update/). The bug is fixed in newer versions. Olimex kindly sent me some capacitors that I can solder to the board to fix it but I haven't gotten around to that yet.
