Calypso is the javascript-based rewrite of the WordPress admin interface for and JetPack enabled blogs. It relies on the REST API to communicate to the WordPress core. It provides desktop apps for Mac OS X (10.9+), Windows (7+), and Linux (.tar.gz)/Linux (.deb)

It's open sourced on Github.


Even though the admin interface is not something the has to be curlable, a JavaScript-only interface with no fallback is not a friendly solution for everyone.

It requires an account on with JetPack enabled.
