For some time now I really wanted a free open source variant of Pinterest, I really like their design and easy way of gathering fun stuff but there's not much good out there.

I'm thinking of starting the dev myself with Laravel, React and REST🤔 It has to be mega super fast! The big diff with Pixelfed would be the "bookmark" or "pin" function as Pinterest calls it but FOSS and with ActivityPub

@stux@mstdn.social there is one self hosted out there. It was featured on hacker news. Though I didn't bother more about it.

@kura Yess but it's crap :blobcatgiggle:​ Already tried it! Pintry i guess?

@stux@mstdn.social I think so. I didn't bother about it. I'm not much of a pinterest fan.

@kura It's very limited and Docker based... yikes :blobcatgiggle:

I dont like Pinterest itself neither but the design yes :bloblaugh:​ its smooth

@stux
Alpine.js might be a lighter alternative to React.

Allows you to sprinkle reactivity on top of Laravel based HTML.

Or perhaps HTMX?
