AlternativeTo Logo

A stream server that does most of what people really want from a social network.

  • Self-Hosted
  • Node.JS

What is

Post something and your followers see it.

You can post almost anything that can be represented with activity streams -- short or long text, bookmarks, images, video, audio, events, geo checkins. You can follow friends, create lists of people, and so on.

There's an API defined in the file. It uses JSON as the main data and command format.

The software is useful for at least these scenarios:

  • Mobile-first social networking
  • Activity stream functionality for an existing app
  • Experimenting with social software

It also comes with a web UI.
