Foursquare Simple Lists

I made a new thing!

Update: there is now a demo! Check it out before running your own, or use it as is.

Sometimes I’d like to send people a URL to one of my (or my friends’!) Foursquare lists, so they can have a look. As this is currently (as of May 2015) not possible inside the iOS app (what gives?!), and the Foursquare web interface is comparably slow and clumsy, I made my own webapp for the task. It’s mostly javascript and uses the Foursquare API. Below is a screenshot, but you can put it up on your own server or even Dropbox pretty easily.

It provides a simple interface to find your lists, your friends’ lists, the contained venues and all the permalinks you want.
