This repo contains a native iOS app.
You're probably thinking "There's only two JSON files here and that's it, how can this possibly be a native app?"
Well, it's because it's powered by Jasonette, which enables native apps over HTTP, using JSON.
The gif you see below is an actual capture of the resulting app
It's fully native, and served directly from this repo over HTTP.
Check out the website to learn how it works.
##How kitty.json works
There are three JSON files here:
detail.json. Each describes a view.
popular.json: The second tab ("sorted by rank") - Makes a network request to
producthunt.comwebsite. - Parses the response into JSON. - Renders the result JSON markup into native components. - Transitions to
detail.jsonwhen a user touches an item, passing the corresponding url as a parameter.
index.json: The home tab. Works the same way as popular.json, but displays the result sorted by time.
detail.json: The details screen (product details page) - Makes a network request to each detail page, using the parameter passed in from
popular.json. - Parses the response into JSON. - Renders the result JSON markup into native components.
