Sometimes all you need is a simple landing page where people can see all of the ways to contact you or view your social pages. Something simple and effective like these Linktree alternatives. Linktree is a freemium social media referencing landing page.
I have tried and used 2 different self hosted Linktree alternatives. Let's take a quick look at them and see which you would prefer to use yourself.
This project is based on the great work from littlelink. It takes the same simple approach to a link page and hosts it within a NodeJS server with React Server Side Rendering, containerized for you to use. Now, customizing
littlelink-server is as easy as passing in some docker environment variables.
Light and dark background options
Change button colors and icons
Built in analytics with the Open Source Unami

If you'd rather have a back end built in where you can just plug in links and change colors and design via admin panel, check out Linkin! Install Linkin via Docker and have it up and running in seconds.
Free and Open Source
Self Hosted, you own your data
Customize your link tree with few clicks using a feature-rich dashboard

Final Notes and Thoughts
I honestly can't even decide which one I like better, I love them both! The simplicity of Linkin's admin panel makes it a bit easier to change things but not if you're using Portainer. I can just as easily edit my Docker Compose variables for Littlelink-Server to make changes. It all depends on how you prefer to do things. Whatever the case, these Linktree alternatives are self hosted. They can help keep your social pages organized in one place. Sound off in the comments about which you prefer, or if there's other options you can recommend.
