Old Readme


List of free services for developers like database, hosting, authentication and other stuff.
Check it out at

I had many tools in my private repository and thought why not bring it to the public? Surprisingly there are not many alternatives out there that focusing on free programming tools, so I created my own dev-tool list to start prototyping or making an MVP.

Built with Hugo Static site generator and hosted at Netlify. (Now Astro on Vercel!)

  1. Only accept free stuff or free trial at least 1 Year.
  2. What is not suitable on this site:
    • We're not accepting language/framework specific tools.
    • Link to "part of specific tools" for example "themes for hugo"
    • Library for a certain framework/language, (e.g. Javascript library).

They're great but there are more suitable place for those tools.
