Scalare is a minimal Twitter client built as minimal and unintrusive as possible. It shows your friend's tweets as Growl notifications.

It allows you to send tweets without stopping your workflow. And because Scalare uses Growl, the customization options are endless. Go into System Preferences and set your custom display styles under the Growl preference pane.

What's New

Version 1.0b61:
  • Fixed some old references to the old app name in the UI.
  • Reinterpret '<' and '>' to show properly on tweets.
  • Fixed some typographical errors.


  • Mac OS X 10.5 or later
  • Growl
  • Twitter account

Any update for Twitter requiring 3rd parties to use OAuth?

This is great. No dedicated windows, just growl. It doesn't distract you unless someone is twittering you.

I wish I could set up the time interval for the update. Right now is 90''.

I recommend this to any mac os x twitter user.

One more thing for those who have downloaded it. If you double-click it and find its not starting, look up in the menu bar--took me 7 double-click to find that out. :) :)

Looks promising. I've been using the Hahlo/Fluid/Growl mashup, and Scalaris is similar and far easier to set up.

One problem with Scalaris right off the bat is that the Tweet field has no character count. Instead, once you've reached your character limit, you just can't type anymore. I'd rather see an unlimited field with a character count, so you can type your tweet and then edit as needed. Doesn't seem like it would be a hard fix.

I like Growl Twitter solutions in general. They are lightweight and unobtrusive. My one complaint is that URLs are not clickable in Growl notifications. I hope Growl can implement this at some point.
