My ambition is to create a Nostr client that is working cross-platform: Android, iOs, Web and as a desktop client. And of course, to be better than BlueSky and better than Twitter :)
This is my journey!
My ambition is to create a Nostr client that is working cross-platform: Android, iOs, Web, and as a desktop client. And, of course, to be better than BlueSky (and better than Twitter). I will name it NostrSky.
This is my journey!
First, I have to get the domain. Simple job because nostrsky.com is free. I use AWS Route 53 to buy and register the domain because it is the tool I usually use for this kind of activity.
Then I have to choose the technologies. Because my main goal is to create a cross-platform client, the best option is the Ionic framework. I choose to use Angular because I have experience with it, but in Ionic, you can also develop with React and Vue.
And I choose Capacitor instead of Cordova for native plugins because it is modern.
I have to play with some mockups.
Always is a good idea to start with some HTML mockups (mobile wireframes) to figure out how the application will look. These are pure HTML pages without any backend - everything is hard coded. And they are looking quite well - isn’t it?
Publish the app on the web →
So you can browse it at nostrsky.com. I used Firebase hosting for this.
And I embedded it here for you. You can play with it right here:

There is a good list of Nostr libraries, tools, and resources:
I aim to create a cross-platform Nostr client called NostrSky that is better than BlueSky and Twitter. I have chosen to use the Ionic framework with Angular and Capacitor for native plugins. I have created HTML mockups and published the app on the web using Firebase hosting. I plan to add dynamic data, create a page to manage relays, and generate a desktop client with Electron.
