Desktop App: Beta testers

May 28, 2018 at 2:17pm (Edited 4 years ago)
We were getting ready to ship the desktop app for Spectrum, and we could use some beta testers! (push notifications 😍) Let us know below if you want to test it out and I'll get y'all a build very soon.

That doesn't look bad! Could get rid of the logo and just show the nav items
Right, didn't think about it. Maybe back/forward buttons could be there, where I expected them to appear and I think many users would as well
I think that would be very unexpected in a desktop app though
, how can I download the desktop application for windows?
Mmmh really depends, if it's subtle enough I think it would be a very welcome feature
Another little suggestion. You can currently select UI elements, so I would put a user-select: none; on those because it's one of those little things that makes apps feel like websites

Keep in mind that header needs to be 38px tall if you want to center the traffic lights (weird Electron thing).
Yeah we just ran into that 🙈 Won't work for us unfortunately
I wish Electron gave you the controls to move those around
38 is what Apple uses for calendar/photos/...
What we might be able to do though is extend the navbar by 38px on top of the exiting one so at least it doesn't show that grey bar, although I'm not sure that would look super great
Yeah I assumed it was an Apple thing, I'd still love to move 'em to be centered with our navbar though
Just remembered the Electron thing. For Boxy we use a custom WKWebView so we can do basically whatever we want (but of course with more headaches on many side than Electron would give us)
This is what stops me using spectrum more often, would love to beta test it
Found the download link. Would be great if the hide default key mapping on mac worked

Would be good to open links in the default browser or have an option about how they open
Agree - I'll look into this in a future push :)
How is it best to raise feedback? Here or github issues?
Either a new thread in this meta channel, or an issue on GitHub are both great
Got a new version incoming soon, hang tight :)
