Cambio is a web browser that uses IMAP and SMTP under-the-hood to allow the Cuban people to view minified and simplified webpages. Through the use of IMAP/SMTP, users can specify their email address and password, allowing them to obtain web pages through the IMAP/SMTP ports instead of HTTP.

How things flow


Technologies Used

  • Electron - Electron is a NodeJS based shell, allowing developers to make cross-platform apps for Linux, Macintosh and Windows using HTML, CSS and Javascript.
  • Node-IMAP - Node-IMAP allows us to access a user's set of emails, provided their email address and provider. Currently with this library, we shall be able to provide support for Gmail and YahooMail (assured support)
  • SMTP-Connection - SMTP-Connection allows us to send an email to our email server (cambio-backend) using the user's provided set of email credentials.
  • Photon Kit - Photon Kit is a front-end UI CSS framework that allows you to make beautiful Electron-based user interfaces really quickly.
  • Kbpgp - KeybaseIO's implementation of asymmetric PGP encryption. This allows us to encrypt/decrypt messages to and from the server and client. This prevents us the regime from inspecting emails in plaintext.
