sunsetting listifi.app

May 4, 2022 on Eric Bower's blog

With the recent release of lists.sh, I’ve decided to sunset listifi.app.

It was a fun side-project that I built over the course of a couple of months and I learned a lot in the process.

The real idea was to create a social media platform to share lists. I added a lot of social features like:

These features were rarely used and as a result, the stack that was chosen in order to support them was no longer relevant. I also didn’t see very much traction, only a few lists being created a week, most of which were test lists.

The unique visitors hovered around 1.6k/month.

Effective immediately I will be redirecting all requests from listifi.app to lists.sh and killing the server that ran listifi.

Thanks to everyone who used the product and I’m excited to work on new project ideas to share with you.
