refreshing reply ✅ lovable links ✅

what is herocast again?

herocast is a desktop Farcaster client for power users aka superhuman for Farcaster. No one knows what it means, but it's provocative. It's gets the people going!

It has support for multiple accounts and can switch channels faster than you can say 'Memes'. It has a command palette Cmd + K to control everything. You can navigate with J and K through all lists, L to like, R to reply and Shift + R to recast. Switch channels with Shift + 1 to 9. Open external links in a cast with Shift + O.


  • Refreshing replies: Press R in Feed to send a reply

  • Loveable links: Shift + O to see all links / embeds in cast and open quickly.

  • Customize and pin your own channels - now with drag and drop

  • Launched permissionless channels

    • Create a channel to any URL or onchain contract in hercoast. Share with anyone on herocast. Integrated with Hypeshot channels.
