Why build Franz
“Being part of different communities often requires you to use different messaging platforms. You end up with lots of different apps and web browser windows trying to stay on top of your messages and chats. Driven by that we built Franz, a one-step solution to the problem.”
Why is Franz called Franz?
Franz, Franz, Franz, Franz, Franz, Franz, Franz… Easy to say, easy to pronounce and full of history. Franz Joseph, I was the Emperor of Austria – almost 200 years later, he now shares his name with a messaging app that, just like him, is at home in the beautiful city of Vienna.
Is Franz open source?
Yes, finally! As of Franz 5, the source code is available on Github under the Apache 2 License. You are more than welcome to file bugs, create feature requests or support the project in general.
