A Sailfish app to read https://news.ycombinator.com/ HackerNews Stories and Comments.

The source is located at: https://github.com/poetaster/harbour-hackernews

This is beta release software. And it's my first 'proper' QML project so expect rough edges.

First view is a list of stories/links, these are linked to comment views and the comment views themselves drive down to comments on a specific comment.

This is how I like to read threads :) It may not be the way you like it ;)

I'm going to start with arm only, since I can't test outside of the ports I own. Tested on: Vollaphone and FP2 ports.


-- Roadmap --

- rework loading of threads to take advantage of caching (silica) DONE
- rework rough GUI elements

- modal elements?
- show number of replies in comment thread
- view author submissions?

- post stories

- Made a small layout change to see if this would make long comments/replies easier to read
