Unofficial desktop client for appear.in

This repository is DEPRECATED

It will no longer receive updates, but it was working without any issues when it was abandoned. It may still work for you.

appear.in logoappear.in (unofficial)

Use appear.in just like you do in your browser, but as a desktop app. This app will also notify you in its icon when messages are received.

This is an unofficial app

The appear.in team has been gracious enough to allow me to use their name and logo on this app, but it is still unofficial. I will retire this app if an official one is ever released.

If you find any issues or have suggestions/requests for the app (as opposed to appear.in’s website), please do not bother the appear.in team directly but instead open an issue.

Install

Download the latest version, or run brew cask install appearin if you use homebrew.

Development

Built with Electron.

Commands
  • Install dependencies: npm install
  • Run: npm start
  • Build for macOS: npm run build-macos
  • Build for all platforms: npm run build
  • Build for macOS and package as a zip: npm run package-macos
  • Build for all platforms and package as a zip: npm run package

Currently, only macOS is supported. I do not intend to officially support other platforms in the near future since I cannot consistently and reliably test on them, but am willing to add support if someone wants to collaborate in doing the legwork.
