Totally fine with people making nice humble apps but does a simple Electron wrapper around a website you can visit in the browser really merit Product Hunt? Not trying to be a d*ck but anyone with a decent level of tech knowledge could create this app with two commands. npm install nativefier -g nativefier --name "Instagram" "https://instagram.com" --icon "icon.png" I personally come on Product Hunt to see new innovative stuff. Wish you all the best though!

@chrissy_collins Agree. As opposed to something like Ramme

@chrissy_collins Try to run the thing that you wrote and tell me if it's the same thing. Hint: It is not. ✌️ Thanks though!

@kopahkah You can't post photos with Ramme. 😏

@lukamarr @chrissy_collins Well, I just changed default window size and also user agent in nativefier.json (located in the package of the application) and now they look quite similar and I can post photos too. But it might be I miss something.

@chrissy_collins you're kidding, right? PH is about 10 percent "wordpress blogs" presented as products...
Chrissy Collins@chrissy_collins
@lukamarr Sorry, I never really tried the commands (I've used them before though) but I don't think I was far off with what @leonspok said.

@lukamarr @kopahkah As of 10 Days ago, you can upload photos with Ramme. https://github.com/terkelg/ramme...

@chrissy_collins sure you make a valid point. But there is a big difference between knowing how to do it and doing it.
Jonathan Simcoe@jdsimcoe · Designer. Jesus lover. Family man.
@lukamarr @kopahkah You can post photos in any mobile web view now. Including Ramme. Sorry bro.

@chrissy_collins do you see the icon that's there for posting pictures. Well that's not there on the browser version you see. Examine the product before commenting mate.
Philip Amour@philipamour · Freelance Product Designer
@chrissy_collins Completely agreed. Hate when people call websites running in a separate browser instance a 'macOS app'. It's a wrapper with poor experience. That's all. Not a new product by any chance. 🙁
Darryl D. @darryldexter · UI Architect / Developer
@chrissy_collins Posts like this are pointless. You assume everybody has the know-how to run said commands, let alone access terminal. It's a product. Just not one for you.
Simon Duhem@smndhm · Web Engineer @ Deezer
@sohan_manju @chrissy_collins yup, just add a user agent and you'll get those icons. In Chrome, inspect and use the device toolbar.

@chrissy_collins cool : natifier was exactly what I was looking for, for a while now! 😄 Thanks.
Tam Ayers@tamayers · Digital Strategist, Founder @ pynpoynt
@chrissy_collins agreed! Even if it's better than Ramme, it doesn't mean it's product hunt worthy.
Giulio Michelon@giulio_michelon · CEO, Belka
@chrissy_collins true, but this imho is a important signal for the Instagram team. Why aren't they listening their users? It's at least two years that people want to post photos from desktop.

@chrissy_collins I used to think the same way about reposts for updated apps but apparently 510 people agree it's PH worthy. Leave it to the community to filter ✌️

Hey boys and girls! 👋 I was thiking of uploading a photo to Instagram from my Macbook, and I wanted a mobile experience that Instagram app gives me on a daily basis. This is the reason why I made this app. Simply download it, log in to Instagram via Facebook login or with your Instagram username and password and enjoy the mobile web Instagram experience. Post them photos! 📷 🌅 🐶 🍕 Features: ✅ Upload photos (.jpg) ✅ Resize photo before posting ✅ Edit profile ✅ View feed, profile, likes ✅ Search users, tags, places ❌ Add filter ❌ Upload multiple photos as photo gallery post Tech: Electron wrapper around instagram.com, made with nativefier.

@lukamarr Do you think one day you could add DM'ing features :^)?

@childishgester This is basically a website with a electron wrapper, so it's actually up to Instagram if they upadate the mobile web ✌️

@thalassavanbeek @childishgester It's really not up to me, but it would definitely be nice! 😊

Wow, I already did this last week when news of the Instagram change came out. Silly me, I should have made a download page for it and called it a product. :-)

@frassmith Why didn't you? Such a shame! I would definitely download it! 😥
Fraser Smith@frassmith · Software Developer, Shanghai, China
@lukamarr Truth is, I used fluid.app, not nativefier so I got a much smaller app file and probably would have been breaching the Ts & Cs if I distributed it. I think. :-) If you can get your version to auto refresh, I'd probably switch.
