    Siilihai is an open source Tapatalk alternative: A low-ressource web forum reader. http://www.siilihai.com/

    I thought about porting it to Pandora & Pyra to improve the forum experience. Unfortunately it seems not to be working with pyra-handheld.com/boards .
    I have asked the developer of siilihai for help and I was told that there is a configuration issue:
    https://github.com/vranki/siilihai-client/issues/8

    Could someone with access to the forum configuration, like ED, please look into the issue?

    That is most interesting - I've always wanted an alternative to it!

    Very nice!
    I'll check.

    FWIW, A sillihai is finnish for one of these:

    I might try to build this on arch, but the build for libsilihai especially seems to be very debian aligned, or very qtcreator aligned if you want to build from source. Still early days though, so perhaps it'll get better with time.

    Seems interesting but I wonder how well maintained it is.

    Link for the Android version on Google play store is brroken... It's not in the store anymore. They have a direct link to a .APK in a news update from last year.

    The android version is not supported well but the Linux version is OK.
    We could also put some effort into improving the application. I think that the approach of reverse engineering the Tapatalk API has some potential
