Best alternatives now that Ferdi is gone

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/getferdi

Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • hamsket

    Free and Open Source messaging and emailing app that combines common web applications into one.

    Hamsket - Originally forked from an older version of Rambox, back when Rambox switched to a "freemium" model. I actually used this for a good while before coming to Ferdi. The interface is simple and clean. Unfortunately, it's maintained by just one person who seems a bit overwhelmed. I had issues with it being able to log into Google services, forgetting all of my account data, not opening links… hence why I switched to Ferdi eventually.

  • community-edition

    Free and Open Source messaging and emailing app that combines common web applications into one.

    Rambox - Basic free account supports unlimited services, $5/month to unlock features (e.g. spellchecker, customizable workspaces), $144 for lifetime license. Performance on my computer was awful. Also, the app itself doesn't look or feel as polished as their website, imo.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • franz

    Franz is a free messaging app for services like WhatsApp, Slack, Messenger and many more.

    Franz - $6/month for unlimited services, no option for lifetime license. This is what Ferdi was originally forked from.

  • Tangram

    Browser for your pinned tabs (by sonnyp)
