Is there a version of deltachat without webshit? I am seeking out apps like this to avoid having my resources hogged by that BS
- you could run the android app in anbox or an android emulator
- use the pidgin plugin https://code.ur.gs/lupine/purple-plugin-delta/ (many features are not implemented there yet)
- You could write your own front-end based on https://github.com/deltachat/deltachat-core-rust or join an existing front-end project:
https://git.sr.ht/~link2xt/kdeltachat - kde qt client
https://github.com/adbenitez/deltachat-cursed - TUI client based on ncTelegram
Also that question was asked before for Linux at-least:
I’m also curious about this as well. The KDE/Kirigami link above is worth following up but it requires building from source. My main concern is not dealing with the Electron overhead so would it be possible to create a web-only version without the Electron wrapper? Would that be hard to do?
Then it could be a similar situation to Matrixs element-desktop and element-web packages as yet another alternative way to interact with DeltaChat. It would then be almost a webmail client like Roundcube, but better
There are plans to separate Delta Chat Desktop from Electron, mainly for easier debugging and testing, but I can’t find any relevant issue open in https://github.com/deltachat/deltachat-desktop/issues.
