github cryptoadvance/specter-desktop v0.8.1


There are two types of binaries:

Specter Desktop

It's a windowed GUI application with Specter server included.
Supported platforms: Windows, MacOS, Linux (x86_64)

Note: In the remote mode Specter-Desktop will open a new window in the browser if you are using self-signed certificates or Tor. GUI app doesn't support it yet.

Note on Linux: you need to set up udev rules (included in the archive). Check out readme.

Note on MacOS: if Specter server doesn't start for a long time at the first launch, quit Specter, go to Applications, right click on Specter and click "open". After that Specter will launch normally, and from now on you can start it as usual.


It's a command-line program that only runs Specter server.
Supported platforms: Windows, MacOS, Linux (x86_64)
