      wallabag has many of the features that Pocket has and is a great and totally free alternative. The reading experience is clean and free from distractions. What makes it even more attractive is the fact that it’s open source and can be self-hosted, which makes it a good solution if you value privacy. If you need hosting, wallabag offers a competitive price for only €9 per year. With migration tools for Pocket, Instapaper, and more, existing users of those services can switch quickly to wallabag. There are apps and plugins for many operating systems, RSS readers, and browsers, but their quality is not always equal. There’s an API so developers can build their own apps or get involved in the open source project.
