Mastadon Standalone Web Client

Is it possible to setup the official mastadon web client as a standalone app without being tied to it’s own instance?

Like other web clients, it would just need to oauth login against a target instance. This would be a nice place to start from for hacking / tweaking the web client, without starting from scratch, or using another unofficial web client app.

No, unfortunately, the web app currently doesn’t handle authentication by itself and just gets its authentication tokens passed down as parameters from the server.
