Atarashii is a simple Twitter Client for your GNOME Desktop.

Features include:
A clean minimalistic GUI, Desktop notifications with configurable sounds,
Themes, auto completion of usernames and CloudSync of read Tweets and

It's build using Python, GTK+ and Webkit.


You can download the Debian-Package or clone the repository and build Atarashii yourself by opening a shell and issueing the following commands:

git clone git://
cd Atarashii

Now install the Debian-Package that was just created. If you just want to start Atarashii without installing it first just run ./

You may need to install fakeroot in order to be able to build the package. Also there is a rare bug where dpkg-deb fails to open/find the control file. If you encounter this please send me a mail with more details.
