[Lemmy] Federated Reddit alternative

Lemmy is similar to sites like Reddit, Lobste.rs, Raddle, or Hacker News: you subscribe to forums you’re interested in, post links and discussions, then vote, and comment on them. Behind the scenes, it is very different; anyone can easily run a server, and all these servers are federated (think email), and connected to the same universe, called the Fediverse.


Hi friend. What are the recommended system requirements for this application? In my case it puts a lot of strain on the processor ((

Ofcourse this package consumes more resource then its competitors.
I made this package because it was requested by someone. And honestly I did not wanted to use Docker for this. But I did not had time to figure out on how to install it without Docker and their was no support from the Lemmy team too.
I am not an expert in recommending what horse should run which race. This really depend on your requirements. You have alternates to this package. And you can scale up if you feel its choking your server.

For any particular issues.
You may contact their team: https://matrix.to/#/#lemmy:matrix.org or Lemmy (@LemmyDev@mastodon.social) - Mastodon

Thanks for the reply. It’s very strange that Lemmy supports installation only from Docker :thinking:


Lemmy maintainer here. One of our contributors has written instructions for installing without Docker.
