A social network on the command line

Welcome to socialize



Use this to pay for our daily cup o'coffee.

Socialize is a minimalistic social network, running on the command line. The project was supported on kickstarter, where we raised over 1'500$ from nearly 60 supporters all over the world.

Many developers prefer vi/vim over many high-tech IDEs, so we thought Why wouldn't they prefer socialize over other "high-tech" social networks.

Socialize is a place for developers, nerds and CLI lovers. Help to make socialize a friendly and fun place by reporting troublemakers.

You can find the API Documentation here.

You can create your own client using this API. It's also a good way to learn a new programming language (e.g. by creating a socialize mobile app..).

Send us an email with your client idea at We will list it on the left hand side. (If it's usable)
