Please contribute to the continued development of this .oysttyerrc creation script. Thank you for your support. If you would like your name posted here for others to see include it in the "purpose" box when you make your donation.
This application will guide you through the process of creating a personalized ., .oysttyerrc file. After creating the file and placing it in your home directory, your prefered settings will automatically be applied to Oysttyer when it opens.
Once your file has been downloaded, you will need to place it in your home directory. Usually files download to the ~/Downloads directory. Open terminal and type:
mv ~/Downloads/oysttyerrc ~/oysttyerrc If your files download somewhere else replace Downloads in the line above with the correct path.
This step is optional, but because of Twitter's tendency to turn against and alienate developers it is highly recommended. You can either install your own instance of GNU Sociali if you have a server, or join a public node such as 2mb.social. Note at this point Oysttyer's ability to operate with GNU Social is shakey at best and you may be better off using gasher. I think that improved GNU Social support for Oysttyer is in the works though.
