New website: I made a test site to learn about fetching data from APIs and turning it into HTML using vanilla JS and accidentally made my main Hacker News reader


Tags: New Website Javascript

Title says it all. Doughnut Reader is my main Hacker News reader now. It’s got a dark theme, works nicely on mobile, and is really fast. No tracking.

Have a look and let me know what you think.

If you have a look at the code (source on Github is here), you can see that I played for a long time with getting comments to appear on the site in a popup. It kind of worked but I couldn’t get the multi-level comments to work well. It means you have to go onto the main HN site if you want to read the comments — which, as we all known, is a big if.
