Development Notes

What's this?

This web page is a view for a larger API I'm working on. The API powers a native macOS app that I'm working on to learn Swift and SwiftUI.

The web view does end up being useful since it tracks sessions in the same way the app does.

The API and this web view are built with Architect + Enhance and deployed to Begin - where I work.

Working on:

  • Queries should paginate until we get > 100 records.
  • "New Stories" timing isn't right.
  • System dark mode support 🌙
  • Existing stories are not removed after they are fetched. If HN deletes a story HNR should too.
  • 🧹 General db sweeps for old stories and stale API "viewers".
  • In progress: Portable token to share a session across browsers/devices.

Experimental viewer token

Enter a viewer token to see stories as a specific user.

This will mess with your session and potentially delete your previous session!
