Tiny Garden

A microblogging platform for the Tiny Factories community and indiepreneurs to share their web presence in one place.


View project


We have been receiving growing interest in individuals wanting to join our Tiny Factories community and wanted to start thinking of a more frictionless way to engage with friends, alumni, and collaborators. We have kept the community growth intentionally slow to ensure that everyone gets to know each other and builds relationships.

Tiny Garden will act as a public side to our community where indiepreneurs, coders, artists, designers, musicians, videographers, writers, animators (and more) can maintain their microblog around their practice. One goal is to allow these Gardens to aggregate an individual's presence from across the internet into one central place. For example, my Twitter, Unsplash, and newsletters all show up in my garden giving people a singular view of my practice.

To start we have a feed view with a few optional filters by source. Later additions will include more views and additional media formats.

We use Postman, a discord bot + helper API, to handle posting from less conventional sources. For example our members of Tiny Factories can post to their Tiny Garden profiles directly from discord.


We are still building out different parts of Tiny Garden so please join the community and experiment with the profiles and share any feedback you would like to see on our Github.
