Pulse Desktop App

Pulse is an online news aggregator that makes reading the news fast and beautiful.
Although it doesn't fit the elementary OS HIG exactly, we thought it might be fun to make Pulse into an elementary "desktop app".
Installing Pulse takes a bit of effort. Essentially you will be creating a Fogger web app. So first, let's install Fogger:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:loneowais/fogger
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install fogger
Create a new Fogger app by opening Fogger from the applications menu.
Fill out the fields, naming it whatever you wish. You may wish to download this icon.

The only thing remaining to finish up your app is to paste the following style sheet into your newly created Fogger app. You can find your app in the folder ~/.local/share/fogapps. Paste the file into the stylesfolder of your app.


You will soon be reading the news in style!
