    Here's something nice that the kind folks at Nintendo Homebrew Discord have been working on, and it addresses a sore need in this community -- a homebrew store!

    You all may be aware that the one built into FBI (titleDB) was discontinued due to neglect, warez uploading, and trolling. Tinydb aims to fix all of that due to careful moderation and good design decisions. Speaking of design, the creator of tinydb is Deadphoenix, the coder of https://bruteforcemovable.com which is featured in plailect's 3ds guide and has hacked over 130,000 3ds's! So you can be rest assured this project is in good hands.

    So without further ado, here is tinydb and its rich feature set:

    By the way, we need more homebrew submissions to grow this thing! So if you have a homebrew you'd like to share please submit it here. You can be dev or just a user to submit. Make sure to read the rules!

    Source:

    In case you missed it, here's the old list from titleDB if it helps rebuilding the library.

    Now this is how you do a homebrew repository that takes user submissions

    Thank you! Yes I missed that list. I just imported 68 applications from it into tinydb that fit into our criteria/rules.

    But why?

    We have just introduced a Public API to be used by app developers for automatic updates or homebrew browsers.

    A basic overview can be found on our github repository in the readme, a more detailed Documentation will follow soon. Repository is deadphoenix8091/tinydb (i can not post links here yet).

    I would like to answer this question with yes. BUT I am not the creator of FBI and thus have no influence in weither or not it will happen.

    I have contacted steveice10 about this tho and it looks promising so far. I will post updates when something 100% certain gets decided or implemented.

    You might want to try making a pull request to FBI's github repo that implements tinydb, at that point I doubt they'd turn it down (and even if they did you can always make a fork with tinydb support)

    The other claimant to TitleDB.com:
    I'm going to be the first to say this outright. When viewed on my Samsung 46-inch HDTV as a makeshaft computer monitor, I prefer haxx.guide's user interface over to tinyDB. You guys should merge the best elements of the two.

    haxx vs tinyDB.

    I'll take a look and try to pack things a little more densely together to fit more into the available space. (on a 1080p screen I have 4 columns of apps tho)
