The app is considered complete. It fulfils its goal and has (to my knowledge) been stable and bug-free for several years. On Apple Silicon Macs, it is deprecated in favour of the iOS Overcast app. On Intel Macs it should continue to work for the foreseeable future. The repository is archived to denote that breaks due to external forces (such as Electron bugs or Overcast site changes) won’t be proactively addressed.

- Install dependencies:

Currently, only macOS is supported. I do not intend to officially support other platforms in the near future since I cannot consistently and reliably test on them, but am willing to add support if someone wants to collaborate in doing the legwork.
