TheQube is a social networking client developed mainly for the blind and visually impaired users. It has no main window and is operated via numerous keyboard commands.
A long time ago there was an open-source, MIT licensed Twitter client named Qwitter. It was developed and actively maintained by Christopher Toth and several other people. It had no main window and was operated only with keyboard commands.
After the development of Qwitter was discontinued, several forks of it appeared. Some of them have main window and a full graphical user interface, some don’t; some of them are paid, some are free of charge.
TheQube is one of such forks. Its first author, Kyle Jones A.K.A. DJ Quartizer, made quite a big effort in developing a decent piece of software. And, being a very pleasant person, he fixed lots of bugs that I, the current developer, noticed. Then, as the development went on, I started learning Python more thoroughly and began contributing to the code.
Unfortunately, now Kyle has no spare time for further TheQube development, but I hope he will return in the future.
You’re always welcome, mate, and you know it! 🙂
