    Lemmy is a free and open-source self-hosted social networking service, with a format based on Reddit.[4] Lemmy is intended to be a decentralized link aggregator and forum using the ActivityPub protocol to operate in the Fediverse. However, anyone can create a self-hosted and independent instance of Lemmy.

    It was originally created by the user Dessalines on GitHub and licensed under the Affero General Public License, and now incorporates contributions from many other developers. It is funded by NLnet[5] through the NGI0 Discovery Fund as well as individual donations via Liberapay,[6] Patreon, and OpenCollective.[7]

    Android Authority described the project as a decentralized way to share content.[8]

    Client Apps[edit]

    On linux there's an unofficial snap format client for lemmy.[9] There are lemmy clients for iOS[10] and Android.[11] There is also an official list of lemmy client apps.[12]
