👇 What is LittleLink-Server?

LittleLink-Server is based on the great work from littlelink, a lightweight DIY alternative to services like Linktree and many.link. LittleLink and LittleLink-Server is built using Skeleton, a dead simple, responsive boilerplate—we just stripped out some additional code you wouldn’t need and added in branded styles for popular services. 😊

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 with littlelink-server is as easy as passing in some environment variables. If you need help configuring this, please see this video at explains everything and a live example at technotim.live.
