What is OpenAlternative?

OpenAlternative is a community driven list of open source alternatives to proprietary software and applications. The goal of the site is to be your first stop when researching for a new open source service to help you grow your business. It will help you find alternatives and reviews of the products you already use.

How did OpenAlternative get started?

The project started as a weekend project to learn a new technology and try something new and fun from scratch. It gained a lot of traction early on (100k unique visitors –n one week, #1 on Hacker News) so it was clear that there was a need for a site like this.

I’ve always been a fan of open source software and I’ve always wanted to contribute to the community in some way. I thought that creating a list of open source alternatives to proprietary software and applications would be a great way to give back to the community.
