Open Zoo


Zootool has been the first visual bookmark service, which combined collecting images, videos, documents and websites from all over the web and it has been a great adventure for more than six years with more than 150,000 users. Unfortunately it never worked out financially and we had to shut Zootool down on March 15, 2014. I still believe in the idea though. I just don’t believe in a hosted service anymore. At Zootool we were never able to give our users the kind of control over their data, which they deserved. They relied on our success and decision to keep it up - and in the end we had to disappoint them. So I want to build a kick‑ass open‑source, self‑hosted alternative for Zootool. Something you can run on your own server and rely on.
