inessential by Brent Simmons

New website: is a single-page directory of “open and indie Mac, iOS, and web apps that help promote the open web.” It’s by my friend Brian Warren.

I love this. This is a page that would never appear as a category on the App Store — and yet it’s an important category.

And it’s a reminder that we can create things that don’t appear on Twitter, Facebook, or Medium. Putting up a website isn’t hard. And it’s fun! Plus you get to do it exactly how you want to do it.

The site has a repo on GitHub, where you can file bugs and feature requests or make pull requests.

Do yourself a favor and bookmark the site. :)
