Help for new app packaging : Nitter (Twiter alternative and privacy-friendly frontend)

I would like to package Nitter for Yunohost.
Anyone here interested and willing to help ? :slight_smile:

While the app is simple, the install is not that much, we need to manage a new user, package building, redis and nitter services, … that’s quite too much for my current knowledge :sweat_smile:

There is a docker image, which might be easier to integrate, but:

  1. I don’t know much about docker, so I’m not sure I’ll be easier for me
  2. I don’t want to run a lightweight service with a counterproductive deployment tool :sweat_smile:

App presentation

It’s a free and open source alternative Twitter front-end focused on privacy.

Current (main) features, according to their website:

  • No JavaScript or ads, very lightweight and fast
  • All requests go through the backend, client never talks to Twitter → Prevents Twitter from tracking your IP or JavaScript fingerprint
  • RSS feeds
  • Themes
  • Mobile support (responsive design)

There are already a bunch of instances (Instances · zedeus/nitter Wiki · GitHub), but this would help to decentralize that service, prevent instances from establish rate limits because of high traffic, and so on.
