in the process of testing fedibooks on windows for the first time...

i'll definitely want to include an installer for this

it works

(the username/password entry format is only used for diaspora*, don't worry! mastodon/pleroma/misskey all use oauth)

i want to bundle the font used (noto sans) so windows/macOS users can have the layout look right

i checked the way that chocolatey (a "package manager" for windows) does it and it seems to just hardcode the download URL...

if that's the best solution they've got then i guess i'll do that too

i don't know why my macOS virtual machine starts up with init logs, but i have to say, i vastly prefer it to the apple logo

so fedibooks is confirmed to work on linux (which is where i've been developing it), windows, and macOS :blobcathappy:

i'm sure it'll work fine on *BSD

the REAL question is, does it work with wine :face_think_thonking:

jokes aside, it looks great on linux, pretty good on windows, and rather mediocre on macOS

the buttons are the wrong size, and too tightly spaced, so it really doesn't feel like it's a native macOS app

@LynnearSoftware Chocolatey is a package manager in the sense of "it can install stuff", but the repos don't contain packages, they just contain installer scripts.

@ben yeah, i just wanted to make sure i wasn't violating any licenses by bundling it, but since noto sans is released under the OFL, it'll be fine

@LynnearSoftware and somehow nobody believes me when I say it takes 45 minutes to reboot for a windows 10 update
