Sorry about that I didn’t update Hotot (version 1) for a long time. Some of my friends know that during the last several months, a new generation of Hotot (called version 3, you can find it here) was still in development. But now, for some reasons, I don’t have enough time and energy to develop Hotot, both version 1 and version 3 will be stopped for now.
I began Hotot because there was no twitter client at Linux platform satisfy me at that time. I want to make a better one and I did it (In certain aspects, some of you will agree).
I am not a coder. In the past three years, I acted as a main developer and a designer. It’s a really memorable experience for me, but it also costs a lot. Time and energy are always limited. I don’t satisfy my life so much at present. I have to make a living.
Because the maintenance is finished too, I won’t respond for any bug report or suggestion. I recommend all Hotot users to switch to other twitter clients. There are a lot choices right now, on every platform, with different designs. Some of them are better than Hotot.
I have released all code of Hotot 3 in GPLv3. You can check it out from the bottom of the article. I construct it with Angular.JS and rewrite it in CoffeeScript. I will be happy if someone continues it. If you hate every twitter client except Hotot and want to continue it, I recommend you to switch to Ember.JS because using Angular.JS in large WebApp like Hotot would meet some serious performance problems.
So apologises and thank you, all fans of Hotot.
