Hello Everyone!

It's just alpha with very-very limited functionality, but I plan to grow it into a production solution.

I want to ask you for some help. If you're ready to join this unofficial project and build Giraffe client together for fun or self-education please let me know. If you want to you can help with the development, testing, or just feedback. Any comments are highly appreciated too.
