Get started

A decentralized and open platform

Funkwhale consists of many independent pods which can communicate together using standard, free and open source technology.

The network is not tied to any corporation or entity, which gives you independence and choice.

Made by people, for people

Funkwhale is built from the ground up by a friendly community of contributors.

Because of that, we can offer you an experience free of tracking and ads, and focus on what you need.

🐳 How does it work?

Just like whales, Funkwhale users gather in pods.  A pod is a website running the Funkwhale server software.

You join the network by registering an account on a pod (sometimes called "server" or "instance"), which will be your home.

You will be able to interact with other people regardless of which pod they are using.

  Start your own pod

Starting your own pod requires some system administration skills, but will also give you more independence and control.

A Funkwhale Pod can run on affordable hardware like a Raspberry PI.
