WordPress has a Linux client?

Standard

Why haven’t I known about this earlier?

While going through my profile account I discovered there’s a desktop client for Linux and specifically an Ubuntu package.

I immediately installed. You can download it here or run this code to download and install it on you Ubunu machine:


cd ~/Downloads
wget -O wp.deb https://public-api.wordpress.com/rest/v1.1/desktop/linux/download?type=deb&ref=getapps
sudo dpkg -i wp.deb
rm wp.deb

If you’re on a non-debian machine you canalso get the tarball and use your systems’ package manager to install it:


wget -O wp.tar.gz https://public-api.wordpress.com/rest/v1.1/desktop/linux/download

Now you can enjoy blogging within your Linux machine without openning a web browser.

Update: As a matter of fact, correct me if I’m mistaken, the client is a Unity web app.
