For people using a or a *native* Fediverse app on desktop, is there one that is nice and actively developed? (preferably GUI but I'm open to TUI)
I'm especially interested if it handles multi-accounts well.
I've mostly seen , Gnome-Social and .
Unfortunately the 1st two don't seem active, I've also seen Toot (TUI) but the fact that toot(le) also refer to iOS apps does not help in finding relevant information...

At some point I thought I had a good idea and would use the instance from @fsfe as a web app on my , however it does not work at the moment, I don't know whether it is a temporary problem with the instance or not... Anyone has successfully tried it? I don't know whether it's an issue with Gnome Web or with the instance.

@silmathoron seems to be working, what's the issue? Do you experience the same behavior on the official instance?
(BTW Sengi is not an app made for phone users, but it should work nevertheless)

The page freezes before the timeline are loaded or fails to load.
What's the address of the official instance? I'll check it out. It might also be due to an old Epiphany version, I'll switch to Mobian to test with 42.3

@silmathoron it's here:

But Sengi is a modern PWA, so you'll need a modern browser indeed. 🙂


Actually, your website doesn't even load on Gnome Web 40.2.
And maybe I've too low a bar for modern browsers, but 40.2 is June 2021...

@silmathoron this is strange. Do you have javascript enabled? If so, I'll try to reproduce the issue on my side.

Of course. I'll also ask the people from purism whether there are patches applied to Epiphany on their repo. Anyway, I'm moving to Mobian to check how it goes with the latest version.

@sengi_app I finally managed to test on 42.4 (had to get mobian working again on the Librem 5 first xD) and it seems to work, but it turns out Sengi seems to heavy for the Librem 5: with 4 columns only it already takes forever to slide and scroll, and the column size is just a few pixels too large for the phone so it makes clicking on the X to close the account menu difficult
