#### Introduction ####
Textual is a highly modified version of the open source project known
as LimeChat. Much of the app uses the open standard of WebKit which
makes customization easy through the use of CSS 3 and HTML 5. Plugins
written in Objective-C and scripts made with AppleScript (and other
languages) are also supported.
#### App Store vs. GitHub ###
There are no differences between the code on GitHub and the binaries on
the Mac App Store. Be that as it may, we will not provide any support or
assistance to forks or self-built versions of Textual. We provide support
for the current Mac App Store version.
Sometimes the Mac App Store version may take a while to update, and that
is not for lack of trying. Apple is notoriously known for how slow they
approve apps in the Mac App Store. If you wish to build Textual for
yourself, proceed at your own risk.
