You are not adhering to the MIT license. 90% of this app is copied from my Caprine app. You pretty much just changed the URL and some minor things. Caprine is open source, and you're free to borrow everything, but credit where credit is due, please! Proof: https://gist.github.com/sindreso... You didn't even bother to update the icon: https://github.com/aviary-apps/Passerine/blob/e541a42fd7e721ffb445c3f73d9494c381680e4f/build/icon.png (that's the Caprine icon)

@sindresorhus I’m sorrry. We have made the changes and added credits and lisence according to MIT. Please let us know. If you want us to anything more. We started off with caprines code instead of an electron bolilerplate and I’m really sorry we didn’t give credits earlier😶

This is fun to wake up to discover today. Love the dark mode feature. 🌚 What was the motivation to build this, @gauthamzz and @aswin_vb?

This looks awesome! How do I install this on OSX?
Gautham SanthoshMaker@gauthamzzz · Anna Assistant, Passerine, MLJobsList
@botherchou saldy. I don’t have Mac to build for you . You can use electron-builder and build this on your system. It will generate a executable for you. https://www.electron.build/multi... Really 😐 sorry If you do that. Kindly please send a pr with executable.
Andrew Chou@botherchou · Software developer and tech enthusiast.
@gauthamzz That's okay! Are there any plans for it in the future?
Gautham SanthoshMaker@gauthamzzz · Anna Assistant, Passerine, MLJobsList
@botherchou in a few days. I’ll comment when it’s done

In Italy this product name would probably be considered inappropriate, it’s a sexist slang word... challenge of globalisation, eh.

@toyg I thought it was birds name
Giacomo 🐍 Lacava@toyg · Python aficionado, geek, dad.
@gauthamzz it is, unfortunately in Italy that particular bird is used as a slang word for the female sex. Any mention outside of bird-related communities inevitably results in sex jokes. I’m not saying you need to change the name (don’t bother), just thought you should know in case you have to deal with Italians at some point.

@toyg I Googled birds. And this came in top. 😅😐. And I like bird, due to the sound it makes. 😇 I will do more research next time. I’m really sorry 😐
