Retro is new again

I’ve run across these Mastodon related apps that are super fun to just play around with or just read about. You can tell these devs really love what they’re doing. I’m not sure if these are NEW but they are being actively maintained.

App Name Description Platform
BREXTODON Runs in Terminal, ASCII art, etc. MVS 3.8J
Macstodon Old school Mac Classic design Runs on Mac OS 7.1 to 9.2.2
toot - Mastodon CLI client Another terminal based
client with lots of functionality
Many linux based systems
I installed with Homebrew on Mac
DOStodon I REALLY want to have this running! Hardware/VM running MS-DOS

Bird Site

Ok, this one is not Mastodon - yet anyway. But it’s sooo coool! You have to read the docs at least. Maybe put in a request to move this to Mastodon now the other site’s API is dying.

App Name Description Platform
