Why build Franz

Being part of different communities often requires you to use different messaging platforms. You end up with lots of different apps or browser windows trying to stay on top of your messages and chats. Driven by that annoyance we started to hack Franz in search of a solution to the problem, while exploring GitHub's framework Electron.

Why is Franz called Franz?

Franz, Franz, Franz, Franz, Franz, Franz, Franz... Easy to say, easy to pronounce and full of history. Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria had a rough time following the downfall of the Austrian Empire. Why not give someone with the presumably exceptional communication skills of an emperor a second chance?
