  • revanced-manager

    💊 Application to use ReVanced on Android

    Youtube vanced was a 3rd party Youtube app without ads and other fonctionnalities re-added that were moved to premuim only, such as background listening, they haf to take it down due to legal reason, but rrvanced came in place, which this time is not an app you directly download (avoiding copyright issues) But an app that patches other apps, such as youtube, and reddit, you can download it here

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The open-source backend cloud platform. The open-source backend cloud platform for developing Web, Mobile, and Flutter applications. You can set up your backend faster with real-time APIs for authentication, databases, file storage, cloud functions, and much more!

  • Reddit-Enhancement-Suite

    Reddit Enhancement Suite

    Reddit Enhancement Suite still works fine for old Reddit AFAIK. Can't vouch for all features, but that link was a macro and I use the comment navigator all the time. Been using RES so long, I really can't tell what's RES and what's stock. Isn't tagging users and tracking how many times you upvote/downvote accounts part of RES? Pretty sure it's working.

  • nostr

    a truly censorship-resistant alternative to Twitter that has a chance of working

  • jerboa

    A native android app for Lemmy

    There are multiple apps I think like reddit clients but the one that seems to be maintained is called jebora for lemmy made by the devs of lemmy itself.

  • AntennaPod

    A podcast manager for Android

    I’d recommended AntennaPod as well, if you’re on Android. It’s open source, zero in-app ads (the ones in the actual podcast are still present), and has I think all the features you just listed.

  • old-reddit-redirect

    Ensure Reddit always loads the old design

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.

  • Reddit

    It used to be open source. Until they wanted to make more money from it.

  • revanced-patches

    🧩 Patches for ReVanced

  • Lobsters

    Computing-focused community centered around link aggregation and discussion

    If you're into computer science, is great

  • Mastodon

    Your self-hosted, globally interconnected microblogging community

    Seeing this github thread made me seriously question their producct vision. If they can't figure out why users would want such a basic feature that all social media platforms have, and more importantly don't seek guidance from a product owner they are simply put, bad software engineers.

  • Pi-hole

    A black hole for Internet advertisements

    Also, look into the PiHole for home browsing.

  • aether

    Aether client app with bundled front-end and P2P back-end

    Aether (, but it's not a website. Takes more involvement to get in.

  • nextdns

    NextDNS CLI client (DoH Proxy)

    A DNS server. I use NextDNS.

  • plebbit-react

    A GUI for plebbit

  • kbin
