The above two are by far few of the popular ones, but if you are intending to look for more, here’s another 4 more digg clones scripts with however less online support. Authors’ descriptions in quotes.

DiggCLone

The diggCLone project is an effort to reproduce the functionality of the oh-so-popular social bookmarking site, digg.com. We’ve changed up a few things about it, but kept how the site basically works. Right now, we’re still in some of the early stages, though, so some of the functionality isn’t there yet.

Upwarded Source

Upwarded.com wasn’t as successful so far as I was hoping, so I’ve had a hard time adjusting the ranking algorithms… there just isn’t enough data coming in to test it. In any case, I’m releasing the full source for Upwarded.com [ZIP] under a GNU GPL/ CC license. All you need is Apache/ PHP5/ MySQL; for more see the contained “readme.txt”.

Loudle

A “digg like” news submitter/voter (non-hierarchical editorial control for you wordphiles) created using industry standard PHP and MySQL.

GrabTheMic

GrabTheMic is an Open Source implementation of community-driven news sites such as Digg (http://www.digg.com) and Reddit (http://www.reddit.com). It is powered by Ruby on Rails.
