hackernews cli

A command line tool to print out the latest posts on Hacker News to your terminal.


If you're anything like me, you visit Hacker news at least 4 times a day and you spend a lot of time in the terminal.

I usually open the Hacker News site in my browser and decide if any of the headlines catch my attention, I thought it would be cool if I could see a summary of the new featured posts in my terminal and only open them in a browser if I wanted to read them, so I made this simple tool.

Preview

Installation

Before installation you will need node/npm installed.

sudo npm install -g hacker-news-cli

Usage

The global installation will symlink an executable script and place it in your PATH. To use with hacker news simply type:

hn

or for designer news:

dn

You will then be prompted to open a post. Type the number of the post to open a post or type 0 to quit and return to your terminal session.
