A link aggregator for the fediverse.

Follow communities Anywhere in the world

Lemmy is a selfhosted social link aggregation and discussion platform. It is completely free and open, and not controlled by any company. This means that there is no advertising, tracking, or secret algorithms. Content is organized into communities, so it is easy to subscribe to topics that you are interested in, and ignore others. Voting is used to bring the most interesting items to the top.

Open Source

Lemmy is and will always remain free, open source software, using the strong copyleft AGPL License.

Blazing Fast

Made using some of the fastest frameworks and tools, including Rust, Actix, Diesel, Inferno, and Typescript.

Powerful Mod Tools

Each server can set its own moderation policy, to help foster a healthy environment where all can feel comfortable contributing.

Censorship resistant

By hosting your own server, you can be in full control of your content.


Lemmy servers can connect to each other in a web of trust, sharing posts, comments, and communities.

Create Your own discussion platform
With Lemmy, you can easily host your own server, and all these servers are federated (think email), and connected to the same universe, called the Fediverse. For a link aggregator, this means that someone registered on one server can subscribe to communities elsewhere, and can have discussions with people on a completely different server.
