Show HN: WebCrate – an open source, social and self-hosted bookmarking tool

> Deta Space made it really easy for me as dev to build something like WebCrate quickly and it's also awesome for users. The app keeps running even if I disappear and hosting, auth etc. is all handled for me
Ah yeah, love the concept, I had similar goals in mind when making Cardi (although I wasn't aware of many options at the time for putting data in control of the user -- I ended up just having people log in with AWS access keys and it stores data in DynamoDB, which is weird but has actually been working great so far).
Anyways Deta seems interesting, looking forward to seeing where it goes from here! Would love more/better options in this space.

Ha, I'm very interested in this!
I had this same problem for my own app, I ended up solving it by just using dynamodb in my personal AWS account as the storage. Generous free tier, great uptime, and no users, security, etc to manage for me, like you mention.
It's way more technical than I'd like of course, since anyone who wants to use it needs to have a personal AWS account. And it isn't "synced", like you say, it's just using the AWS JS SDK to speak to dynamodb directly. But still it's been a real pleasure to build a web app this way -- the fact that anyone can use the app by plugging in their own storage is kind of the web development holy grail IMO.

Show HN: Cardi – store your notes for free in AWS DynamoDB
2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 2 Feb 2021
Hey thanks! I wouldn't say it's a hard dependency, in fact it can work with other things that are API-compatible with DynamoDB, like Scylla for example if you wanted to self-host everything:
And in terms of using something like Firestore, the storage needs of this are very simple so it wouldn't be very hard to add that in. I tried to keep all the persistence-related functionality separated off for this purpose:2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 2 Feb 2021
Ask HN: How do you build your personal start page?
11 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 2 Dec 2021
for years now my "personal home page" has been a TiddlyWiki collection of notes and bookmarks. Simple, lightweight and very useful.
Forgotten program: Note taking or writing app where you can deep dive into words like a wiki, each one opening further and further to the right...

I've been having some success using TiddlyWiki to create a person offline wiki. I'm mainly using it for lecture notes from dog training conferences, but I think you should investigate it for this as well. It's small, fast, taggable, searchable, copyable to other devices (just an html file!), and you can keep individual training plans viewable in the feed to focus on while all the others are "closed" but still available as soon as you search them and click them if you want them back. Also heaps of plugins available - I found one that lets you create a visual map of all your notes and you can arrange them however you like with links between them in case you wanted to look at groupings spatially.

TiddlyWiki is something I've used for awhile that I quite like, runs in a browser and is fairly smooth, though can take a little bit of work to get running (though there might be services that run it for you and handle all the cloud-based stuff).
