Littlelink-Server - A Self-Hosted Linktree Alternative

Having the ability to only have one link in your social profiles can be a problem. I found the solution though! Littlelink-Server! You can see the example in my Twitter profile which links to my Littlelink-Server instance.

LittleLink-Server is a fork of Littlelink, created by popular YouTuber Techno Tim. The platform offers a DIY alternative to other link-hosting services, such as Linktree or, and lets you host all your necessary links in one space.

Built on the Skeleton boilerplate - which is agile, responsive, and user-friendly - LittleLink-Server is integrated into a NodeJS server with React Server Side Rendering, making it straightforward to use. It follows the same principles as Littlelink and offers you more customization possibilities.

Setting up LittleLink-Server is easy: just enter your environment variables, and you're good to go. You can select from more than 60 brand buttons to highlight your links and choose from different themes to make your LittleLink pages stand out. Additionally, monitoring your page's performance is simple with features like analytics and health checks.

LittleLink-Server's Docker-compose customizability provides users with numerous options to refine their link page. This element makes it a great option for techies seeking a DIY alternative to traditional link hosting services. It ensures lightning-fast loading while maintaining an easily usable interface.
