A place to share alternatives to popular online services that can be self-hosted without giving up privacy or locking you into a service you don't control.


  1. Be civil: we're here to support and learn from one another. Insults won't be tolerated. Flame wars are frowned upon.

  2. No spam posting.

  3. Posts have to be centered around self-hosting. There are other communities for discussing hardware or home computing. If it's not obvious why your post topic revolves around selfhosting, please include details to make it clear.

  4. Don't duplicate the full text of your blog or github here. Just post the link for folks to click.

  5. Submission headline should match the article title (don’t cherry-pick information from the title to fit your agenda).

  6. No trolling.

I'm interested in self-hosting a Wishlist like the way Amazon's wishlist used to work.


  • Add links from websites
  • Mark items as purchased on others' lists
  • Hide purchased items within timeframe of birthday, christmas, etc


  • Bookmarklet to easily add link
  • Runs on OpenBSD with php/nginx

I run phogiftreg, it works really well overall but feels really dated. Development isn't very active, and I wish it was docker.

I like this idea. Would be cool if the guests could mark items as purchased and would only reflect to other guests and not the admin 😂 at least not until after the event.

I know it isn’t specifically what you are looking for since it isn’t self hosted, but Things to get me is great and I’ll take any opportunity to get people off of Amazon that I can.

You could probably make a new issue in a wishlust repo that uses markdown checkboxes or something similar. Would be good if you already host Gitea or another git sever.

I wonder if something like hoarder might suit your needs and you can filter purchased based on tags
