Thank you very much for this excellent application. It's my favourite Mastodon TUI.

@quite now themes are included in the location you suggested :)

Please also bundle the example themes. Maybe in /usr/share/tut/doc/themes ? (or does tut read /usr/share/tut/themes/ ?)

Now it includes doc and licenses, thanks @m040601 :)

Small request:

....You can find ... in this repo named config.example.ini. I....
.... copy ./config/toot.tmpl and ./config/user.tmpl from this repo ...

Could you please add the README and all these example/template files to the PKGBUILD of "tut" and "tut-bin" ?

They should end up in something like


Especially the README. It would avoid having to open and go back to the browser.

Also you might want to add that LICENCE file to

Just to report that it runs perfectly on x64 and Archlinux arm:

  • Raspberry Pi 2 (armv7h, 7 years old)
  • Chromebook (armv7h, 10 years)

Memory usage reported by btop around 10-15 MB. Very smooth and ridiculous low light CPU usage, no spikes etc.

Big thank you for making it possible to not throw away perfectly good old hardware.

Now there's a binary package, checkout tut-bin. Please report if it doesn't work as I don't have any machine that runs Arch on arm.

And it's nice to see a fellow Arch users :)

Thanks for providing and keeping this PKGBUILD always up to date. A very usefull cli mastodon tool.

If it's not asking too much, could you also provide a "tut-bin" PKGBUILD :-) ?

This is a go software. So compilation and release is easy peasy. The developer also provides precompiled binaries for many architectures. And he releases often.

I prefer the precompiled binaries, with all the risks, instead of constantly recompiling.

Including ARM. That's the little underpowered Raspberry Pi and Chromebooks where one also can run perfectely Arch Linux Arm. But they are underpowered to constantly download and recompile the 500 MEGA go tool chain.

Something like arch=('x86_64' 'aarch64' 'armv6h' 'armv7h')


I just noticed that Rasmus the maintainer of this PKGBUILD is the same as the developer. Nice !!! To know you're also an Arch user. And big thank you for developing this tool in the first place.
