Ramme: An Unofficial Instagram Desktop App for Linux

Ramme Instagram App for Linux
Written by Martins D. Okoi

Ramme is an unofficial cross-platform Instagram desktop app with support for theme customization, keyboard shortcuts, background behavior, and automatic updates.

Ramme exists thanks to the seemingly almighty Electron which developers have been using to bring desktop clients to services which would have otherwise not been available for Linux. It is responsive with a minimal design and intuitive interface.

Features in Ramme

  • All the Instagram’s features: likes, follow/unfollow, add a comment, search, discover, profile settings, image upload.
  • Light and dark color theme
  • Keyboard shortcuts e.g. Ctrl 3 to navigate to the notifications panel and Ctrl 2 to discover new people and liked images.
  • Automatic updates

Ramme Keyboard Shortcuts

  • Go Back: or delete
  • Refresh: Ctrl R
  • Home: Ctrl 1
  • Discover: Ctrl 2
  • Notifications: Ctrl 3
  • Profile: Ctrl 4
  • Scroll a post up: Shift Up
  • Scroll a post down: Shift Down
  • Toggle Dark mode: Ctrl D

Ramme doesn’t come with many features other than those Instagram offers and those you will need to use in the app so don’t go looking for extra image and filtering options – it’s purpose is to bring Instagram to Linux.

The latest version of Ramme for Linux is available in .deb and AppImage here.

Your Unwavering Support Matters a Lot:

The cost of maintenance is skyrocketing as more readers are coming on board and the ad service that we employ in order to generate revenue is unfortunately no longer sufficient and this is especially due to the increased use of ad-blockers.

We humbly request that you consider disabling your ad-blockers to support us financially or by donating as anything from $1. Your donation(s) will go a long way in supporting FossMint and sister site, TecMint, in running efficiently. Thank you.
