💼Portable - you don't need a server to host them

👁Private - nothing is sent to–or stored on–this server

🎁Easy to share as a link or QR code

I had a great time using this product. Endless microsites makes it possible to share deeper content on sites like Twitter, super easily.

Here's my first attempt at an Itty Bitty site, i've hidden it inside of a bitly link to make it easier to share on platforms that limit link length:

Pros:

easy to use, novel, satisfying

Cons:

no permanent hosting, some platforms limit link length

Haven't found any big cons yet.

I agree - more use cases would be great!

As has already been said in multiple reviews, some use cases would be nice. I discovered that HTML, CSS, and JavaScript can all work, so I tried out a small coding tutorial:

UPDATE: It seems like that link is so long it's being cut off, so here's a shortened one: https://bit.ly/2NC8nzK

It's really neat that this whole thing can fit in a URL, but what advantage would this have over other products? For example, put the same example on CodePen and you have a much better user experience (clean code, less work), while both enjoy the benefits of free hosting on someone else's server.: https://codepen.io/cbejensen/pen/ppQgRb

UPDATE: After writing the above paragraph, I realized you can paste CodePen links into the itty bitty editor.I am not sure this increases the usefulness of this app, but it is interesting.

Maybe a coding reference just isn't a good way to use this product. But that's the big question - what is a good use case for this product? What problem does this solve that other apps cannot solve better?

In summary, it's fun to consider the idea, but not ultimately all that useful.

Pros:

Unique, interesting idea

Cons:

Not very useful
