Do you remember Franz, the software that allows you to group together many web services in a single application? This makes it possible to separate the environments and above all to be connected to several accounts at the same time on the same service even when this is theoretically not possible from a traditional browser.
Franz has evolved well and has now paid off. However a competitor has just pointed the tip of his nose and it is free: FERDI.
FRANZ FERDI NAH?
So Ferdi allows you to organize your web apps the way you want and group them into the same desktop app. You can create multiple workspaces (personal, pro, etc.) and add as many services as you want. Services that will be presented in tabs.
The app is completely free, open source and runs on mac, Linux and Windows (ElectronJS powaaaah). You can also support it by clicking here. I find it very pretty, it is available in several languages and seems pretty fluent at first.
Ferdi is compatible with your Franz account if you have already set up one and you can also use it without an account or with your own server if you do not want to entrust your data to Ferdi.
The client can also be locked with a password and for the sensitive of the retina, the dark mode is also present.
When it comes to services, there are really an impressive number. The classics Twitter, Github, Twitch, Google Drive, Jira, Microsoft Teams, ICQ, WhatsApp, etc etc etc…
In Franz’s doc, you also have access to open source “recipes” for third-party services, which you can retrieve and edit to add to Ferdi.
