About Curalist

Welcome to Curalist, where your lists come to life and your interests find a home. At its core, Curalist is about connection—not just between people, but also between the myriad dots of our digital existence.

We understand that the internet is vast and sprawling, a treasure trove of knowledge, entertainment, and resources. But in this vastness, it's easy to lose track of the nuggets of information that matter to you. Curalist is here to ensure that never happens.

Our Mission

Our mission is simple: to provide a dedicated space where you can effortlessly curate lists of URLs that connect you to the websites, social posts, videos, and eventually, much more. Think of it as your personal index to the internet—a place where your digital bookmarks become beautifully organized collections, tailored by you, for you.

The Vision for Your Lists

Imagine starting with a URL to a fascinating article you stumbled upon. With Curalist, you can take that URL and nest it within a themed list alongside other related content. But we won't stop there. As Curalist evolves, you'll be able to give each list its own flair with custom designs, and enrich them with more complex items like uploaded images, links to image URLs with thumbnails, and more, all crafted to make your lists not just informative, but visually captivating.

Our Robust Platform

Curalist is being meticulously constructed atop the robust shoulders of Microsoft Azure. Our scalable platform ensures that your experience is smooth, secure, and swift. The hierarchical and relationship data are cradled within Neo4j Graph databases, providing the perfect structure for the complex networks of your lists. For all relational data, we trust Microsoft SQL Server to keep things in check. And for everything you upload, Azure Blob Storage stands ready to house your files with care.

Additional Azure services, like Azure Functions, are the silent heroes working behind the scenes to deliver a seamless experience, whether you're creating, editing, or simply browsing through lists.
