How to Enable Gitter Next in Franz

Switch to Gitter Next in Franz

  1. Open Franz DevTools. They don't have a UI for that but support team told me that Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Fn+Up will do it on Mac laptops. I assume Ctrl+Alt+Shift+PgUp shold work elsewhere.

  2. Franz is an Electron app. All chat windows are WebView elements and you can't inspect them. Select a webview element for Gitter (not the shadow DOM root inside it). Then open a console and type $0.openDevTools(). This is an Electron API.

  3. To turn on Gitter Next paste document.cookie='gitter_staging=staged;domain=.gitter.im;path=/;expires=' + new Date(Date.now() + 31536000000).toUTCString() into the console of the new DevTools window. This one-liner is from Gitter Support article.

  4. You may need to restart Franz after that. Enjoy!

I have the same problem, but I don't understand how to use the solution you suggested...
