The making of Ice Cubes, an open source, SwiftUI Mastodon client  ↦

Thomas Ricouard:

This is the first article in what I hope will be a long series of stories about the making of the Ice Cubes app. This article will focus on what the app is, the general story behind it, and an overview of the codebase.

I’ve been using Ice Cubes (source code, App Store) for all Mastodon stuff on my phone since it was first released, and I really like it. I didn’t know it was open source at the time, but even better: its author is writing all about the making of it. Looking forward to this series!

Same here. I’ve been using Ice Cubes as well. I’ve tried a few others along the way but I keep going back to Ice Cubes. I first learned about it being open source last week too and that’s awesome. 😎 We all need to donate a few bucks towards this work so it will keep going

I actually upgraded to macOS 13 just so I can run Ice Cubes for iPad as a desktop app. The experience isn’t perfect on the Mac, but pretty stinking good!
