TopHN is a website that aims to recommend exactly one story from Hacker News to you.


Say you have got only enough time in a day to read just one story from Hacker News. What is that story going to be? TopHN tries to answer that question for you.

The top story on Hacker News is sampled every minute. The story that occurred most frequently in these samples in the last 24 hours is recommended to you.

What if you missed the top story yesterday, or the day before yesterday, or the one last weekend? We have got that covered on the archive page.

Hope you like the website and visit it on your busy days.
