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...

@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 ✌️
@childishgester @lukamarr Now there's something I'd want! That would be SUCH a big help!
@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! πŸ˜₯
@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.
$10 says fb/insta will shut this down pretty quickly ;)
@chuckreynolds It's just a wrapper for Instagram mobile web :)
