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.
Kanban board in one HTML using localstorage

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

Logseq exists to increase the knowledge output of humanity.
We're building a better environment for learning and collaboration. We're currently building a neuron inspired knowledge base/personal knowledge assistant that captures, synthesizes, searches, and creates knowledge as fast as you think–a digital extension of your brain. We don't think in pages and folders, but today's tools do. It's slowing us down. Logseq gets you to answers and smarter decisions faster.
A Leader in the Tools for Thought space
We're a leader in the Tools for Thought space (with a unique focus on privacy and data ownership)––delivering on the pioneering work of Douglas Englebart, Alan Kay, Bret Victor, Vannevar Bush, and more. We're continuing the mission of augmenting human intellect and collective intelligence with computers, discovering novel UI + HCI and superpowers to do so :) More on our mission here: https://adventurous-ragdoll-1e0.notion.site/Who-is-Logseq-2c...
Ownership and Autonomy
As Logseq's first designer, you will immediately have substantial ownership of the feel and functionality of the product. We're building a new way to think, which requires considerable tradeoff consideration and thoughtful user driven design. You will own our first design systems, early design processes, foundational product decisions and more. We're aiming to build a new knowledge tool for billions of people to change the world: empathy, systems thinking, intense level of polish are prerequisite.
If you're passionate about Tools for Thought or making humanity smarter, would love to hear from you!

Starting with Markdown

Obsidian is a good recommendation. I also recommend checking out logseq. It's a journal note taking app similar to obsidian. Supports both markdown and org mode and it's also open source unlike obaidian.

[Appfluencing] Logseq for notes + Obisidan for writing
1 project | reddit.com/r/Cortex | 19 Nov 2021
Maybe Grey at al. should consider taking a look at Logseq for notes and then keeping Obsidian for writing, I've found the combo to work quite good, even though Logseq is still in beta and under heavy development. It's an outlining tool, sort of "Notion meets Roam under Org-mode for Emacs".

Highly recommend LogSeq (https://logseq.com). It started out as very Roam-inspired, but with focus on actually supporting both Org and Md. It’s quite GUI-heavy with good shortcuts support.8 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 12 Nov 2021
