Browser support

Pinafore supports the latest versions of the following browsers:

  • Edge
  • Firefox
  • Safari

Compatible versions of each (Opera, Brave, Samsung, etc.) should be fine.

Goals and non-goals


  • Support the most common use cases
  • Fast even on low-end phones
  • Works offline in read-only mode
  • Progressive Web App features
  • Multi-instance support
  • Support latest versions of Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and Safari
  • a11y (keyboard navigation, screen readers)

Possible future goals

  • Works as an alternative frontend self-hosted by instances
  • Android/iOS apps (using Cordova or similar)
  • Support Pleroma/non-Mastodon backends
  • i18n
  • Offline search
  • Full emoji keyboard
  • Keyboard shortcuts


  • Supporting old browsers, proxy browsers, or text-based browsers
  • React Native / NativeScript / hybrid-native version
  • Full functionality with JavaScript disabled
  • Emoji support beyond the built-in system emoji
  • Multi-column support
  • Admin/moderation panel
  • Works offline in read-write mode (would require sophisticated sync logic)


To build Pinafore for production:

npm install
npm run build
PORT=4002 npm start


To build a docker image for production:

docker build .
docker run -d -p 4002:4002 [your-image]

Now Pinafore is running at localhost:4002.
