A Hacker News reader in Swift using the best features of both the language and iOS 8 latest API (well, that's the end goal)
SwiftHN is now available on the App Store! I've renamed it to HN Reader for obvious reason.
Clone this repository.
$ git clone --recursive https://github.com/Dimillian/SwiftHN
Incase you cloned the repository without the
recursive option, you will have
to manually install the HackerSwifter submodule.
$ cd SwiftHN $ git submodule init $ git submodule update
Open using Xcode.
$ open SwiftHN.xcodeproj
- Now link with its own Hacker News Swift scrapping library, HackerSwifter. This is still a work in progress but it support the most basic features. This is linked as a submodule, so be sure to clone it too (I'm looking at you Github for Mac)
- The podfile is now useless, you may still run pod install to setup the project.
- A basic UI which respect latest Apple guidelines
- Use Swift features such as extension, framework, etc...
- Display HN home categories (Top, Ask, Jobs..)
- Load and display comments per posts.
- Load and display posts per user
- Share, Add to reading list, read in webview
- Live view rendering in Interface Builder
- Class Extensions
- Today and share extensions
- Clean design pattern
The app is in progress, but already functional, you can read the newsfeed, send article to the Safari Reading List, view the article in a webview, and load comments.
You can contribute to the app, just do a pull request. You can even contribute to the design in Sketch if you want!
