Anatine Save Abandoned

[DEPRECATED] :bird: Pristine Twitter app

Project README


Me and others put a lot of work into this project to make the Mobile Twitter site great as a desktop app. I've chosen to deprecate it now, as it's impossible to keep up with the Mobile Twitter ever changing React class names. I don't have time to update a bunch of CSS-selectors every other week. Thanks for all the fish.

Happy to let anyone else take over if interested.


Pristine Twitter app

This app is based the awesome Mobile Twitter site, but modifies a lot of things and makes it more usable on the desktop.


Dark mode

You can toggle dark mode in the Anatine menu or with Cmd Shift D / Ctrl Shift D.

Background behavior

When closing the window, the app will continue running in the background, in the dock on macOS and the tray on Linux/Windows. Right-click the dock/tray icon and choose Quit to completely quit the app. On macOS, click the dock icon to show the window. On Linux, right-click the tray icon and choose Toggle to toggle the window. On Windows, click the tray icon to toggle the window.
