#Aether

Current version: 1.2.3

Aether is a free app that you use to read, write in, and create community moderated, distributed, and anonymous forums, an “anonymous reddit without servers.” — The Verge

More information at the website.

Aether is available for OS X, Windows and Linux. If you're just looking to try it out, download the app directly. All provided binaries are signed, signatures are here.

If you choose to not trust the provided binaries, you can build it yourself, instructions are below.

How to build

You need a working PyQt that should be linked to your system Qt installation. That's impossible to automate, so please check the respective documentation on how to do that. In short, you should install Qt first, and then follow these instructions for PyQt.

Afterwards, install the requirements.txt via pip, and do python main.py on the project folder.

If you want to package the app, the PyInstaller spec files for Windows, Mac and OS X are provided. Fill in the required folder names on spec files, and PyInstaller should handle the rest.

Note: Unless you're building for OS X, you do not need PyObjC dependencies in requirements.txt. Feel free to remove them.
