Baby Elephant

The home timeline being displayed on a Pixel Watch

A Mastodon client for WearOS based smart watches.


This project is still in very early development, as such the authentication flow isn’t fully implemented yet. Eventually the project will support authentication via a companion phone app and be available through the Play Store, until then it’s probably only of interest to very technical users.

Currently to log in you need to go to the Development settings on your mastodon instance and create a new application with read/write/follow/push permissions. Then copy the lib/config.dart.sample file to lib/config.dart and enter your access token (don’t share this with anyone!) and instance. You can then compile the app by running flutter build apk --release. This will create an apk in build/app/outputs/apk/release that you can then install to your watch.
