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.

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.
