About


This is very recently released project to build an iOS client for the Hacker News website, based on the Firebase API. The impetus for this project came from frustration with existing apps, and a desire to have a personal learning project, in which to experiment with iOS9-only features like UIStackView.

Certain features were significantly more challenging than anticipated - such as creating a collapsable comment system, displaying rich text content including links, quoting, indentation, code samples, and implementing a reliable night/dark reading mode.

This project was released on April 24 2016, and is available for free download via the link to the right.
