Dianara is an open source, free and graphical software project that has been designed from the offset to act as a client for the pump.io federated/distributed social networking client, enabling users to easily manage their pump.io social network accounts.
It supports identi.ca
With Dianara, there's no need for a web browser, as the application will fetch and display the last 15 public post. All you have to do is to enter your pump.io ID (e.g. username@podname) and the auth token. The application can also be used for the identi.ca social networking service.
Straightforward and modern GUI
The application’s graphical user interface (GUI) is easy to use, straightforward and modern. It uses a tabbed interface that gives users quick access to their contacts, messages, activity, timeline and bookmarks.
Getting started with Dianara
To use the software, you will have to enter your pump.io address and verification code from the get-go. After that, all of your contacts will be loaded into the application and you can start chatting.
From the Preferences dialog, the user will be able to edit his/her profile by adding an avatar, biographical information, address, email, etc., add and edit filters/rules, which will be used to automatically ban anything you don’t want to see.
Lastly, there are a wide range of configuration options that can be tweaked to make the application act exactly the way you want. You can change fonts, colors, notification and system tray icon.
Under the hood and supported OSes
Dianara is written in the C++ programming language and uses the cross-platform Qt GUI toolkit for its graphical user interface. It supports a wide range of GNU/Linux distributions, including Chakra, Arch Linux, openSUSE, Mageia, Debian Testing/Sid and Ubuntu, as well as other operating systems.
