Lemmy

[Lemmy]

Lemmy is an open-source, easily self-hostable link aggregator that you can use to share and discover interesting new ideas - and discuss them with the world. Its designed to work in the Fediverse, and communicate natively with other ActivityPub services, such as Mastodon, Funkwhale and Peertube.

Lemmy aim to create a decentralized alternative to widely used proprietary services like Reddit. For a link aggregator, this means a user registered on one server can subscribe to communities on any other server, and have discussions with users registered elsewhere. The front page of popular link aggregators is where many people get their daily news, so Lemmy has the potential to help alter the social media landscape. In this project, the team focuses on standards compliance, interoperability, internationalisation features, private communities and improving moderation.
