Hacker News Reader- Facebook Style

Main App Image

In my quest to learn Android programming I joined Udacity Android Developer Nanodegree Program and it culminated in a capstone project of choice. Being a frequent visitor of Hacker News. I decided to code a hacker news reader app with the styling of Facebook newsfeed. Will showcase the app here and elaborate on the image extraction logic.

Libraries Used

  • Hacker News API
  • Jsoup- To parse the weblinks and enable extraction of main image from the link.
  • Picasso- For image processing in Image views.
  • Okhttp- For web network calls.
  • Simonvt.Schematic- For content provider setup.

Google Services Used

  • GCM (Google Task Service)- For periodic task to load data and keep the app news feed updated in backend.
  • Google Analytics- To measure user activity to named screens
