Have you ever wanted to self-host your own wishlist platform? Well now you can with wishthis! 🤗
Wishthis is a fantastic platform for creating, managing, and viewing your wishlists for any occasion. It`s a non-commercial, self-hosted wishlist project with a modern, and straightforward user-interface, making it easy to use for people who are not tech-savvy.
Wishthis is completely open-source and all the code can be seen on the project Github page. The wishthis developer is constantly looking for ways to improve the platform and user experience, making it adaptable to users' needs.
Wishthis can easily be self-hosted using the recommended, unofficial Docker Compose mentioned on the wishthis Github page at the very bottom.
version: '3.7' services: wishthis: container_name: wishthis restart: unless-stopped image: hiob/wishthis:stable volumes: - ./config.php:/var/www/html/src/config/config.php
To keep your database configuration permanent, mount a volume (see example above), create a file named
config.php and copy the
config-sample.php from the repo.
The platform suits various use cases, perfect for events such as birthdays, holidays and even weddings, where you want to communicate the gifts you desire easily. For instance, if someone has created a wishlist for their birthday, they can share the wishlist link with friends and family, ensuring that everybody knows what gifts have already been purchased and what gifts are still available. Those wishes that have already been claimed will no longer be visible publicly.
Final Notes and Thoughts
Wishthis provides a hassle-free way of creating and sharing wishlists, making special occasions more memorable by ensuring that people get the gifts they desire.
If you find wishthis useful, be sure to swing by the wishthis Github repo and give it a star or support the developer monetarily.
