Tracking HackerNews history in git

Published on
#hackernews #scraping #automation 

First of all: this is based on the idea of https://simonwillison.net/2020/Oct/9/git-scraping/ and https://github.com/simonw/ca-fires-history

The gist:

  • every 20min
    • scrape hackernews frontpage items
    • save them in hn.json
    • commit and push

Find the git repository here at christian-fei/hn-history
