Thicket: A decentralized Vine clone
Vine was a short-form video hosting service where users could share six-second-long looping video clips. You can think of it as the "Instagram for GIFs."
Thicket is a service that utilizes Offline First and Distributed Web technologies to realize the same functionality without any intermediary servers. It is Vine the app without Vine the company.
When the necessary networks and protocols are mature enough, Thicket can be used as the base to build an entire proof-of-concept social network that stores all of its data within its users' browsers, requiring no centralized servers for data storage.
Content created in the app is shareable to the traditional web.
Thicket is available under the MIT License.
