Oh My Product Hunt
This is an open-source effort to build an Android app for Product Hunt.
Download me on Google Play
Why am I building this?
- Product Hunt does not have an official app for Android.
- I am a Product Hunt fan.
- I was going through the mobile training track from Groupon and looking for something as capstone project.
Why am I open-sourcing it?
- I got help all around from open-source community, and it is time for me to help back.
- The rate limit on Product Hunt API makes it impossible for this app to scale to a big crowd of users. Opensourcing the app could allow any hobbyist to use their own API keys to build the app.
- A big problem of hobby projects is they lack continuity. I believe open sourcing the app could allow this app to be kept improving.
- Another problem of third-party apps is about privacy and transparency. Since this is an app for the Product Hunt community, I believe it is better supervised by the community.
- You cannot vote/comment on a post yet. Updated: The app cannot get the write access. :-< Really sorry guys!
