Gatsby Theme Link Free
Link Free is an open-source alternative to paid, limited tools like Linktree.
It is developed by Mars using the Jamstack architecture, combining the power of Gatsby (React and GraphQL) with Tailwind CSS and Netlify CMS to provide a fast, reliable, and fully customizable tool, served by the Netlify CDN. 🚀
You can see it in action by visiting our Link Free page 🌎, and while you’re at it, go have a look at our social networks. 😉
Why use it?
Social networks like Instagram and TikTok do not provide support for clickable links on post captions. To circumvent this limitation, tools like Linktree appeared, providing users the ability to use their profile URL field to direct viewers to multiple destinations.
While these tools are simple by design, we consider them to be more expensive and less customizable than they should. Using Linktree as an example, the free version doesn’t even provide a proper color customization option, and even the paid version doesn’t allow you to serve your page using a custom domain.
Other than creating a link list, currently, you can:
- Add a custom logo;
- Add a custom favicon;
- Integrate Google Analytics or Google Tag Manager with just an ID;
- Freely customize buttons, background, and font colors;
- Customize the button’s border-radius (make it square or rounder).
You can also live preview all your changes while you work on them.
