FOSS Reddit alternative

Lemmy is an open source self host-able Reddit clone that is written in Rust. Right now the project is in the early stages of development and is not recommended for people that need something stable.

The devs do have a live version that is open to people to test.

Easily able to deploy on


This makes me happy.

The learning curve on Reddit is pretty steep, but once you get the hang of it, it begins feeling like the commenting system the internet should have been built with as a primative.

Their content policy, advertising, and tracking? Not so much.

Good to see it’s in Rust, and very happy to see it’s going to be part of the Fediverse.

I’m gonna give them some money.
I’ve become a Patreon sponsor until they get better recurring options. Wheee! :slight_smile:
