Show DEV: Hacker News β€œAdd to Homescreen” Web App

https://hn-pwa-1.firebaseapp.com/

Killer features:

  • It shows the top comment
  • Dark mode! Or light mode! Depending on your system settings.

If you’re on an iPhone, add it to your home screen. It will open in its own window, not in Safari.

I was able to pull this off easily by adding the apple-mobile-web-app-capable meta tag.

This is what I was able to do in 24 hours. I’ll be working to make it an installable app soon.
