Shoelace is an alternative frontend for Instagram's Threads. It delivers a lightweight, minimalist, and privacy-friendly alternative to Threads' web UI, and requires no browser-side JavaScript to access.

Shoelace is co-developed and powered by spools, a content scraping library for Threads, written in Rust.
