Hyperspace is the fluffiest client for Mastodon and other fediverse networks written in TypeScript and React. Hyperspace offers a fun, clean, fast, and responsive design that scales beautifully across devices and enhances the fediverse experience.

Note: For more information on how Hyperspace 1.0 is different from the Hyperspace Classic (0.x) series, please see MIGRATING.md.

Build instrictions

Prerequisites

To develop Hyperspace, you'll need the following tools and packages:

  • Node.js 8 or later
  • (Optional) Visual Studio Code

Installing dependencies

First, clone the repository from GitHub:

git clone https://github.com/hyperspacedev/hyperspace

Then, in the app directory, run the following command to install all of the package dependencies:

npm install

Testing changes

Before testing Hyperspace, make the following change in config.json, located in the public directory:

    "location": "https://localhost:3000"

This is necessary to test Hyperspace locally and will need to be reverted after testing or before releasing to master.

Note: if you are testing the desktop version of Hyperspace, replace https://localhost:3000 with desktop.

To run a development version of Hyperspace, either run the start task from VS Code or run the following in the terminal:

npm start

The site will be hosted at https://localhost:3000, where you can sign in and test Hyperspace using your Mastodon account. If you have signed in before, you will be automatically logged in.

Alternatively, if you are testing the desktop version of Hyperspace, run npm run electrify (or npm run electrify, if you don't want to make another production build). Hyperspace will open in a window where you can sign in and test Hyperspace with your Mastodon account. You'll be logged in automatically if you've signed in before.

Building a release

To build a release, run the following command:

npm build

The built files will be available under build as static files. These files should get hosted to a web server.

Building desktop releases

You can run any of the following commands to build a release for the desktop:

  • build-desktop: Builds the desktop apps for all platforms (eg. Windows, macOS, Linux). Will run npm run build before building.
  • build-desktop-win: Builds the desktop app for Windows without running npm run build.
  • build-desktop-darwin: Builds the desktop apps for macOS (eg. disk image, Mac App Store) without running npm run build.
  • build-desktop-linux: Builds the desktop apps for Linux (eg. Debian package, AppImage, and Snap) without running npm run build.
  • build-desktop-linux-select: Builds the desktop app for Linux without running npm run build. Target is required as a parameter.

Note: If you are building the macOS version of Hyperspace, add your provisioning profiles and entitlements files in the desktop folder and ensure you have installed your developer certificates on your machine before running build-desktop or build-desktop-darwin.

While the command will run without needing the signature, it is recommended that you make a signed copy to protect users.

The built files will be available under dist that can be uploaded to your app distributor or website.
