Astonishing that they haven't been hunted yet. Especially since it shares one of my most favorite uses cases with PH. Finding all the popular alternatives/products for a specific app. Always check AlternativeTo as well as PH when I look for a product and what options I have (for example text editors).

@chdrakon wow I never even checked, just assumed

@gabriel__lewis What do you mean? What did you assume? (LOL, never mind, got it. It's still early in Europe ^^)

Actually I think it solves the "give me all options to one tool" still better than PH. I actually struggled a bit with finding all the text/code editors that are being used on PH. At AlternativeTo I just had to search for one tool I know to find a lot of other options (

@chdrakon Same, never checked :D And I use this tool from time to time :)

@chdrakon I'm guessing because they've been around for ages and ages. Normally PH is only newish products, though a few exceptions like this sneak through.

@chdrakon alternativeTo has not been hunted yet? Wow, this is very astonishing. Using it since... can't even remember how long. Feels like a decade.
Andrew Palmer@andrew_palmer
I wonder if there's an alternative to AlternativeTo 🤔

@andrew_palmer @ola_johansson We must go deeper.
Mike Coutermarsh@mscccc · Code @ Product Hunt
@ola_johansson lol!
Rohit Srivastwa@rohit11 · Founder, ClubHack
@ola_johansson @andrew_palmer And PH is listed as alternative to alternativeto :)
Gilles Bertaux@gillesbertaux · Co-founder/CEO @Livestormapp
One the most amazing thing about AlternativeTo is their SEO ranking. They're absolutely everywhere on "Alternative to {product}" which is probably #1 factor of traction for this kind of product.
Farbod Saraf@farbodsaraf · Co-founder
So alternative to PH is AlternativeTo?
Facundo Ameal@fameal · Not that much (solo)preneur
I was really surprised that it was not hunted. My guess: it's one of those pages we all take for granted 🙃
