Brutaldon è un'interfaccia Web 1.0 brutalista per Mastodon e Pleroma. E' un client per usare il tuo account mastodon, come le app Android o iOS, ma funziona in un server web, ed è accessibile attraverso un browser web.

Brutaldon is a brutalist, Web 1.0 web interface for Mastodon. It is not a Mastodon-compatible social networking server; rather, it is just a client, like the Android or iOS client for Mastodon you may already be using, but it runs in a web server, and is accessed through a web browser. The web browser that brutaldon targets is Lynx. Of course, you can use it in a more heavy-weight graphical browser, as well as other text browsers such as w3m or elinks.

There is a hosted instance at which you can use to log in to any instance. However, you are also encouraged to run your own, either locally or on a public server.

Brutaldon is ready for day to day use, but is still missing many features. Please see the issues tracker.


People love screenshots, whatever the project, so here we are.
