Doughunt: Open-source free Podcast Listening app for macOS (Free program)

Doughnut is built to be a modern macOS application adopting Apple’s design language, whilst preserving it’s own unique user experience. 100% open source Swift based.

Doughnut is a podcast client built using Swift. The design and user experience are inspired by Instacast for Mac which was discontinued in 2015. After experimenting with alternate user interface layouts, I kept coming back to the three column layout as most useable and practical.

Beyond the standard expected podcast app features, my goals for the project are:

Support an iTunes style library that can be hosted on an internal or network shared drive
Ability to favourite episodes
Ability to create podcasts without a feed, for miscellaneous releases of discontinued podcasts
Previously Doughnut was built on top of Electron which worked ok, but using 200+ MB for a podcast app, even when it's minimized felt very poor. Doughnut is now written as a 100% native MacOS app in Swift.
