Software in Development

Funkwhale

Funkwhale

Funkwhale is a libre federated music platform, similar to Grooveshark or SoundCloud. It lets you easily discover and share music online through a music-oriented social network.

It’s still being developed, but you can try it out at the demo link below, or join one of the “whales” listed on the project website.

Prismo is a libre federated alternative to Reddit. It’s still under development.


Carnet

Carnet

Carnet is a free open alternative to Google Keep, featuring notetaking, todo lists, images, audio and syncing with NextCloud, with Google Drive support planned.

It’s still in beta testing. Carnet is currently available for Android, Linux and NextCloud.


Translation Projects

Translation Projects

There are some free open alternatives to Google Translate in development.


Scuttlebutt

Scuttlebutt

Scuttlebutt is a social network with no servers. All your data is stored on your own computer or phone, and you can use it offline.

There’s a mobile app for ScuttleButt called Manyverse and a desktop app called Patchwork. Some parts of it are still in development, so it can be tricky to use.


Dat Project

Dat Project

The Dat project is creating a new set of technical standards called “Dat”, which provide a privacy-conscious alternative to HTTP.

The “HyperText Transfer Protocol” currently is the foundation of the world wide web and powers most websites, like this one. Unfortunately, HTTP rules are being exploited to invade people’s privacy.

Dat is being developed by a mixture of non-profit organisations, community groups and volunteers, and it aims to give users more control over who sees their data.
