About OpenDir

About this micro-site

This site is just a fun side-project that I built in around 48 hours during a weekend. I was really bored and wanted to build something. But I wanted to make something that has zero-maintainance. So, on a Friday night, I made up my mind to build this fun little micro-site that works all by itself.

Who is it for?

Well, it's for almost everyone. If you download movies, mp3s, books, softwares among many other things from the Internet, this is for you. And if you're into data-hoarding, you'd love the contents! Even if you're a newbie, read the how-to page to be familiar with Open Directories.

How the site works?

The site regularly checks for open directories in the wild and adds the links to the database. This app doesn't check if the directory is still 'alive'. Most open directories get 'dead' after sometime (if they are not left open intentionally), when the server admin realises it's open.

What is it built on?

It's a very simple site that uses equally simple techniques. Here are the ingredients:

  • FatFreeFramework
  • Medoo DB Library
  • Bootstrap 3.3
  • FontAwesome Icons
  • Cron
  • ...and some late-night coding!

I found a bug/unsafe link/mis-categorization.

You can share your feedback. I really appreciate your taking the time to improve the site. Thanks!
