What is this repo?

It’s repo for the opensource version of kenobi desktop app which works on windows, linux along side macOS.

Why is the desktop app opensource?

To help others who are struggling with writing code that commnunicates with between desktop <=> iOS Devices

It is not limited to iOS devices (can be expanded to PWA, android apps and even desktop apps)

How does this work?

Websockets! Desktop Application acts as a websocket server which is then connected to via client.

The client then sends commands to the server and the server acts upon it.
