HN Clone

HN Clone replicates much of the functionality of news.ycombinator.com allowing users to post links, comment on links, comment on comments, and vote on comments/links that are not theirs.

Run

To run HN Clone locally at localhost:3000, simply enter the following in your bash shell:

git clone https://github.com/Pcushing/HN_Clone.git
bundle install
rake db:migrate
rails s

Demo

Check out our working demo of HN Clone.

Todo

  • Provide numbering on the list of links
  • Update ordering of links and comments based on a combination of votes, time since posting, etc.
  • Provide explicit error messages for validation errors
  • Improve loading various resources via AJAX instead of explicit refreshes
  • Allow users to retrieve passwords, edit their credentials

License

HN Clone is a side project and totally free. Enjoy.
