Fether was originally developed on top of Parity Ethereum which transitions to Open Ethereum, more info here. As a result, Parity Technologies will not maintain actively Fether anymore.
Parity Fether aims to be the lightest and simplest decentralized wallet. It supports Ether and ERC-20 tokens, and runs on top of Parity Ethereum light client. This allows smooth synchronization and interaction with the Ethereum blockchain, in a decentralized manner.
By default, Fether will launch its embedded Parity Ethereum light client. You can also separately launch your Ethereum client and Fether will automatically connect to it, as described in the Fether FAQ.
Parity Fether interacts with the light node using
Parity Fether is licensed under the BSD 3-Clause, and can be used for all your Ethereum needs.
If you run into problems while using Parity Fether, first check out the FAQ on our wiki and feel free to file an issue in this repository or hop on our Gitter or Riot chat rooms if you have any question. We are glad to help!

chmod +x /path/to/fether-x.x.x-x86_64.AppImage.
tar xf fether-x.x.x.tar.xz.
This attack vector applies to any AppImage application. It consists of crafting a .home file/folder to be used as the home folder by an AppImage application. The danger resides in the fact that this .home file could be a symlink somewhere on the user's computer. The AppImage would be using this new location as a home folder, in a non-transparent way. Running the application as root might damage a system, for example, by overflowing the /boot partition.

git clone https://github.com/paritytech/fether cd ./fether yarn install
yarn; yarn build; DEBUG=electron-builder yarn release --mac; is to just run
yarn package and then run the
open "./packages/fether-electron/dist/mac/Parity Fether.app" (i.e. no need to install)
Publishing a new release to GitHub is performed by a maintainer of the repository. In this case you need to obtain the
GH_TOKEN from GitHub settings and add it using
export GH_TOKEN="..." to ~/.bashrc and then run
source ~/.bashrc. If you get an error that the
GH_TOKEN is missing and you are only building the binary but not publishing, then just ignore the error.
Build and run binaries (i.e. .dmg) for production on Mac of a specific remote branch
git fetch origin INSERT_BRANCH_NAME:INSERT_BRANCH_NAME; git checkout INSERT_BRANCH_NAME; rm -rf ./packages/fether-electron/dist/ rm -rf /Applications/Parity\ Fether.app/ yarn; yarn build; DEBUG=electron-builder yarn release --mac; open ./packages/fether-electron/dist/Parity\ Fether-0.3.0.dmg
Build and run binaries (i.e. .deb) for production on Linux
Note: If you want to save time building, then first edit electron-builder.json so that it only builds a single binary like .deb instead of all of them
sudo rm -rf /opt/Parity\ Fether; rm -rf ~/.config/Electron; rm -rf ~/.config/fether; rm -rf ./packages/fether-electron/dist/; sudo rm /usr/local/bin/fether; sudo apt remove -y fether; yarn; yarn build; DEBUG=electron-builder yarn release --linux sudo apt install -y ./packages/fether-electron/dist/fether_0.3.0_amd64.deb fether
Build and run binaries (i.e. .exe) binary for production on Windows
rm -rf /packages/fether-electron/dist; yarn; yarn build; DEBUG=electron-builder yarn release --win; ./packages/fether-electron/dist/Parity\ Fether-0.3.0.exe
