There is a Hacker News App in the Jolla Store, but it doesn't work.

A Sailfish app to read https://news.ycombinator.com/ HackerNews Stories and Comments.

The source is located at: https://github.com/poetaster/harbour-hackernews

This is beta release software. And it's my first 'proper' QML project so expect rough edges.

First view is a list of stories/links, these are linked to comment views and the comment views themselves drive down to comments on a specific comment.

This is how I like to read threads :) It may not be the way you like it ;)

I'm going to start with arm only, since I can't test outside of the ports I own. Tested on: Vollaphone and FP2 ports.

- rework loading of threads to take advantage of caching (silica) DONE
- rework rough GUI elements
 

1.x.x

Oh. Boy. Sorry everyone, but I thought I'd been careful with the package name, but the CamelCase which is not visible here, is in the deployed app: harbour-HackerNews. That won't do in the Jolla store so I've renamed.

 

That means you need to un-install  / re-install for updates in future to work.

Very sorry for that.
