Lightning fast client for Mastodon

Olifant is a client for the world’s largest free, open-source, decentralized microblogging network with real-time notifications and support for multiple accounts.

Mastodon is lovingly crafted with power and speed in mind, resulting in a free, independent, and popular alternative to the centralized social networks.

Anyone can run a Mastodon server. Each server hosts individual user accounts, the content they produce, and the content to which they are subscribed. Every user can follow each other and share their posts regardless of their server.

Get it on AppCenter

Get Olifant and more on elementary AppCenter, the open, pay-what-you-can app store for indie developers. Every app is open source and has been reviewed and curated by elementary to ensure a native, privacy-respecting, and secure experience.

Note: This app is only available for elementary OS 5.1 Hera. If you’re on elementary OS 6 Odin, it will not appear in AppCenter. You can reach out to the developer and ask that they update it for OS 6.
