I read Hacker News (HN hereafter) daily.
The way I read is that, I skim through titles and open 5~10 stories and actually read 2~5.
Two problems I have with HN.
- Each HN page shows 30 stories only and
- having to click on “more” for a post-back seemed too much of a pain
And I don’t need real-time updates of the story.
So I created SHaNc, a Static page Hacker News clone.
I will only introduce you SHaNc in this article. Details on how it was built and problems faced while building it will be discussed in the next post.
