Woah! This is PURE GOLD, people!

Real big list of self-hosted alternatives. Some time has been spent curating this sucker!

@david_ross It's my first stop when looking for new stuff to add to my exocortex. Can't recommend it highly enough.

@drwho yeah it's like another one I have bookmarked on programming books. I'll get me one of those. Then I might learn kung fu.

@sireebob I added the 666th issue to a project the other day. And it was pretty boring.


In fact lots of gems in it !

That's why the free software directory is important

We can't rely on word to mouth to know what's around

@catonano precisely! On one hand it's awesome as open source is now, you know, a pretty big thing. But discoverability is actually pretty hard.

I often use something like alternative.to which is crowd sourced info.It's weird how our brains love a list like this! Not sure if many will take action on it. I sure as heck will.


i am impressed by archiving software, in particular

I happened to have crossed DSpace and I didn't suspect there were other projects in the same category !

@catonano And if you DO spot any truly useful Open Source projects that blow your mind, consider boosting via the hashtag

@david_ross I love this list. Still want to try the browser based terminal and a pastebin service. 😊

@christopher yeah I love love love exploring new software. Going to take some time over the next 6-8 weeks working my way through it. So many of them I've never heard of before!
