Sunday, May 22, 2011 - Hacker News in real-time

By Vasudev Ram - | @vasudevram

Just saw this:

The site is titled "Hacker News in real-time". It has a section at the top that dynamically updates to show the number of new posts, where "posts" seems to mean comments as well.

Below that, the rest of the page shows topics from Hacker News, with each topic showing a (linked) topic title, and the latest comment on the topic. Clicking the title link opens that HN topic in a new browser tab.

There does not seem to be much information about who the site is by, except that the feedback link in the top right corner of the page is a mailto: link to . I only did a quick check though. seems to be a search / news site for various categories of topics.

I had sometime earlier tweeted about the Unofficial Hacker News API. Not sure if this site is built using that, or in some other way, such as using HN's RSS feed.
