Using Flow with Fluid
Fluid is a popular tool to turn web apps into semi-native Mac apps. Fluid apps have all of the advantages of a web app while feeling a bit more like a Mac app. You can use Flow with Fluid as well, giving you another way to integrate it with your Mac workflow. Note that while Flow isn’t fully supported in Fluid since it uses older web technology (meaning, you may encounter odd behaviour in Flow), it can still be a nice way to use Flow on your Mac.
Getting started with Fluid is easy. Just download it from the Fluid site, run the application, then enter the following info in the dialog:
Name: Flow (or anything you like, actually)
Icon: Use Website Favicon1
Moments later, you’ll have a new Flow Fluid app in your Applications folder. You may need to log into your Flow account if you weren’t already logged into Flow in Safari when you first open it.
Flow, for the most part, will work the same in Fluid, and you’ll still need to be online to use it. But, you can now get to Flow directly from your Dock, and can even receive notification badges right on the Flow icon. Plus, Flow includes a nice iOS style icon that will blend in nicely with your other apps without any tweaking.
