Creating a custom labeled version of conjoon has never been easier.

The installer (i.e. initializer) for conjoon received an update to make setting up a local installation of the frontend more convenient and more intuitive.

The installer requires Node.js 16.14 or above and is started by typing

npx create-conjoon@latest 

on the command line. Additionally, you have the option to initiate the quick install right away by providing the name and the target directory for the installation:

npx create-conjoon@latest "my webmail" ~/webmail

The quick install will continue the installation process by picking the latest release from the package registry (including pre-releases) and configure the installation with fake endpoints returning demo data. You can still connect to production systems later on by using appropriate settings.

If you prefer a guided installation for configuring endpoints for existing backends right away, you can omit any of the arguments. The installer will then present various options to make sure your requirements are met!

In both cases, target directory will contain the files required for developing conjoon and a production build available in the build folder, which is served by typing npm run stage in the target directory.

Have a great day! ☀️

🎉 5 years after the (almost) first commit to conjoon's new home, we're happy to announce the immediate availability of the first public pre-release of conjoon, an open source email client built with JavaScript, PHP and great tools from the open source community.


npx create-conjoon@latest 


cd target_folder
npm run stage

to get started, and don't miss out on the documentation.

While we're confident that conjoon can take its first steps in a production environment, expect a stable first release to be available in the coming days. Until then, a few additions to the documentation and the guides will be made.

Happy coding! 🎈
