Seems to be (unintentionally?) killed by upstream. For updating it tries to access the URL

"https://github.com/voltapp/volt/releases/download/<!DOCTYPE html>\n<html>\n<head>\n <meta name=description content=Native"

Clearly, something is broken.

Just does this every time I run it

~$ volt
initial setup...
done!
Updated. Please restart
exiting from os.exit(): 
~$

Not sure if package or upstream.

Although 1.0 RC1 for Windows and macOS is out, I don't see a Linux download. Feel free to re-flag this once it becomes available.

This app has a really sketchy authentication mechanism on linux, as far as anyone can tell it hijack's the user's Firefox session cookie. See https://github.com/voltapp/volt/issues/143 Its closed source which makes the situation even worse. Anyone installing this software should do so with extreme caution.

Thanks very much. :)

@doctorcolossus Fixed by uploading the release somewhere else.

Upstream issue: https://github.com/voltapp/volt/issues/149.

New user here. I'm getting a "404 Not Found" error. There appears to be no volt_linux.zip under the repository's releases: https://github.com/voltapp/volt/releases The only assets listed are: Volt.dmg, volt_mac.zip, Source code (zip), Source code (tar.gz)

Looks like it only supports Slack. I guess that's just false advertising from the author. I'll remove it from the description, sorry.

I am looking for functioning twitter app and came across Volt. How do I setup Volt use twitter? When I launched for the first time it asked for Slack workspace in a webpage and an empty window opened up. Am I missing something?

on manjaro xfce, chose to install either glfw-x11 or glfw-wayland, errors occurred when try to start vlot from terminal. for x11: volt: /build/glfw/src/glfw-3.2.1/src/window.c:774: glfwSetWindowUserPointer: Assertion `window != NULL' failed.

for wayland, error message is similar.

Manually installing either glfw-x11-git or glfw-wayland-git, and start, it gives: exiting from os.exit(): Failed to initialize glad OpenGL context

edit: I also found that: https://github.com/voltapp/volt/issues/147 quote: "After some research it seems that this happens because the application requires OpenGL 3.2.1 but my machine has version 2.1. Is there a workaround to this or can the developer downgrade the OpenGL requirement?"
