ZenHN is a minimalistic single page website, listing the highest ranking links of Hacker News and nothing else.
As a developer, I'm naturally curious and like to stay up to date on recent IT developments. I'm also easily distracted by endless scrolling, comment sections and information rabbit holes. To find a balance (and because quiet hacker news disappeared a few times already), I wrote zenHN: the HackerNews frontpage, brought back to just a list of links.
- Calm: ZenHN is deliberately minimalist in design. IMO, the title and domain name are sufficient to decide if an article is worth reading.
- Easy on the eyes: There are no ads, comment sections, images or other distractions. There is also a dark version, because I know my target audience.
