About this site

This is a simple Hacker News clone, built with Sapper, an application framework for Svelte.

Svelte is a new kind of framework, one that compiles your component templates into fast, compact JavaScript — either client-side or server-side. You can read more about the design and philosophy in the introductory blog post.

We're using hnpwa-api as a backend. The app is hosted on Cloud Run, using Cloudflare for the CDN. The source code is here.
