Feature-wise this is great, it's like an auto-inlined Safari reader version of all the articles.
Unfortunately re-publishing other people's work (written article) is generally considered theft or a copyright violation.
HOWEVER, things like safari reader exist, and I believe side-step the copyright issue by not storing or "publishing" the work and just "displaying" it differently to a single viewer. After all the browser is already display its own visual representation of the "text" (html).
So I assume if this was written as a browser plugin, it would be fine, or at least fine-ish? Is that actually true?
What about if it was writen as a Greasemonkey script? Still fine?
What if the client side script also stashed the "formatted" texts in the local storage for offline viewing?
Wondering what did the author use here to extract content? edit: its php-redability, project is here https://github.com/mauricesvay/FullHackerNews
"Oh can we... can we watch ourselves?"
You can even hear the resonant frequencies starting à la Alvin Lucier's "I Am Sitting in a Room".
Does anyone know if 'Virtual' Museums exist that collect pieces of internet art? I feel like this belongs somewhere. I do not mean like Archive.org I mean a curated collection
I agree though that there's no real reason for it to lose the links to the comments or the vote/comment numbers.
I agree with the sentiment though.

I suggest reading either of those three feeds on https://inoreader.com/ . If you add the feed there, you will have access to past aggregations since the feed had been submitted.
wow that would be super cool.
What can sites do to avoid getting on the blacklist in the future? Were they non-compliant with some standard, or just too complicated to handle today (but you'll fix it later)?
Also, whoa, this is 5 years old, why is it being submitted now? Might be worth throwing a (2013) on this.
I second this question. The Dolphin team's writeups have gotten a pretty good reception here, from what I've seen, so it seems like a shame for those to get automatically blocked.
Edit: Ninja'd by the maintainer.
I use Instapaper + the Send-to-Kindle feature to read things in bed each evening, and being able to read a summary of HN that day would be amazing.
Edit: ya, what hamandcheese said. I guess my tab had been open for a while.
And yes, perhaps asking the commenter to contribute is also reasonable, but the tone seems unnecessarily adversarial to me.
I find the black bar pretty distracting from the content.
Also a clearer separation between the articles would be great.
Finally if you used page links (#), the browser navigation could support back and forth.
Currently I use an iOS app called "Offline Pages" to download the Hacker News frontpage + linked articles + comments before I board a flight.
I don’t want to demean their effort and good on them for building. But why am I seeing this on the front page?
