hn-button.com

This is the site behind the Hacker News button. It's split up into two parts:

  • The iframe that loads on all the pages where you add the button.
  • And the the site itself where you make your own button.

It also relies on a few key components:

  • hn-button.js is the library that gets asynchronously loaded to initialize all of the Hacker News buttons on your page.

  • hn-button-snippet is a simple component for rendering the HTML snippet for the Hacker News button.

It's all open-source, so feel free to poke around and see what's going on. Even submit a pull request if you see anything funky :)
