Read All of Hacker News With the hanopener Extension

| programming | projects | javascript |

I’ve been reading Hacker News obsessively lately. In the past I would skip the top posts every couple of days, lately I have been reading every new and top article. In order to achieve this I would go to the main website, and click on every single link on the front pages.

After doing this for a few days I realized that I should probably write some Javascript to automate this entire process. So this afternoon I whipped up the hanopener chrome extension.

Initially I made it a python CLI script, but then realized that this would probably make more sense as a chrome extension.

Be warned: This extension is super obnoxious and will open up 60 chrome tabs every time you click on the icon, which is not always a good time depending on your computer.

It’s available on the chrome webstore and as a Firefox Add-On now.

UPDATE @ 5/28 Added link to Firefox Add On
