Reader YC

Reader YC is a native hackernews client built with Cascades and Python (using Blackberry-tart). Instead of using often unstable APIs, this app directly scrapes Hackernews for posts, and optionally comments, to ensure maximum uptime. Currently the app is at V1.5.4 (don't usually update the readme), and is available on BlackBerry World

To fetch comments, the user has a choice to either use BeautifulSoup scraping or the HN Search API. The api is much faster, so I recommend it. However it can be unreliable, and doesn't sort comments properly until a few days after the post was submitted. Since 1.5, the scraping is faster and works better. A setting to enable Legacy Scraping can be found within the app.

Here is a current screenshot of the main page: image

An up to date signed BAR file is almost always available at this repo.


I recommend you use virtualenv for this, makes the process much easier


`pip install bs4`


`pip install requests`


`pip install /path/to/bbtart/`

The bbtart package is available on my github.

Steps to build:

Since making bbtart an installable package, building is a lot easier.

First Step First create a root directory, I called mine 'apps', then

Install Blackberry Tart To do this you'll need to download the bbtart package here

REQUEST DEBUG TOKEN BAR FILE blackberry-debugtokenrequest -storepass STOREPASS -devicepin DEVICEPIN

note: the storepass is the password you used to first register for debug tokens with RIM

BUILD DEBUG BAR: after installing bbtart with pip, run package -mdebug

BUILD RELEASE BAR: Same as above, except specify the -mrelease flag after package


INSTALL APP TO DEVICE: blackberry-deploy -installApp -password DEVICEPASS -device DEVICEIP -package NAMEOFBAR

SHORTCUT I've defined an INI file called deploy.ini, where you can set up all your parameters for building/installing. Then install becomes a one liner: deploy -c path/to/deploy.ini I've uploaded my deploy.ini file, which describes all the parameters.

NOTE: The bars will be placed in the current directory
