Call For Designers

Kaktüs needs a lot of help on design. Here is what's missing;

  • Logo: Current logo is something I had to pick up from Dribble (with the permission of the designer) and it's temporary.
  • Icons: Kaktüs needs an icon set to interact with user better/
  • Ideas: Kaktüs needs your ideas on how to improve tabbing and search.


Building From Source

Install all dependencies:

npm install

And get the build out for your target platform. Available platforms are:

  • macOS
  • win
  • linux

So, I usually run;

make osx

Command to get my build for macOS.

Making Changes

Kaktüs is built with choo and electron. Here is the commands I run to start the development:

$ make watch-css
$ make watch-js
$ make start


I'm temporarily using a cactus image I found on Dribble as a logo.
