Hacker Bar

Version 1.2.0

Hacker news at your fingertips.

Hacker Bar overview

Hacker Bar lives in your menu bar and provides a steady stream of the top news stories from Y Combinator. This Open-Source utility lets you quickly and discretely check hacker news.
  • Grabs the top stories from Y Combinator and seamlessly refreshes them every 5 minutes (or at a customized time interval).
  • Puts a check mark beside each viewed story. Never again wonder if a link has been visited and use this feature to quickly jump back to any interesting article.
  • Allows multiple stories to open in a new tab by group linking articles. If the web browser is open and the active application, stories will open in the background without closing the Hacker Bar menu.
  • Gives easy access to comments with a click of the comment count bubble. Here, registered users can up-vote articles and get flame wars started even faster!
  • Can be set to auto start on login, never missing another great Y Combinator story!
